Vatican welcomes Obama gun control proposal

VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican praised President Barack Obama's proposals for curbing gun violence, saying they are a "step in a right direction."

The Vatican's chief spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi, said Saturday that 47 religious leaders have appealed to members of the U.S. Congress "to limit firearms that are making society pay an unacceptable price in terms of massacres and senseless deaths."

"I am with them," Lombardi said, in an editorial carried on Vatican Radio, lining up the Vatican's moral support in favor of firearm limits.

"The initiatives announced by the American administration for limiting and controlling the spread and use of weapons are certainly a step in the right direction," Lombardi said.


Ok, Vatican. I totally understand that you guys see guns as something that has no place in civilized society.

Wow !!!! lukewarm and On Guard !!! you are both right on the BULLSEYE .... very well said ... I believe in nonviolence but also believe in protecting my family and my life ... all the people that are against guns are the very ones that have security guards of some kind ...
Unreal. The world is on the verge of a global dictatorship, and the Vatican thinks it's a good idea to take guns away from people. So these evil governments, the goals that do not coincide with the Social Kingship of Christ the King, that's goal are atheistic materialism for the entire world, are the only ones that should possess guns? Someone should be questioning the goals of the Vatican if that's their "aim."
The problem are not the weapons. The root of all the problems is the heart of people. Sin comes from within us.
The Vatican should really stop watching too much CNN, and do a little more research when it comes to this topic! And also since the opinions of faithful matter little in to some at the Vatican why should the opinion of the higherarchy matter to those in the USA? Way to go Lombardi praising the new socialist order in the USA who has been supporting the radical Islamist who are now overtaking Mali. Please those at the Vatican do some research!
"If a thief be found breaking open a house or undermining it, and be wounded so as to die: he that slew him shall not be guilty of blood". (Ex 22 vs 2) .....LEGITIMATE DEFENSE.... Catholic Catechism- 2264... Love toward oneself remains a fundamental principle of morality. Therefore it is legitimate to insist on respect for one's own right to life. Someone who defends his life is not guilty of murder even if he is forced to deal his aggressor a lethal blow... And - 2265... Legitimate defense … [More]

Funny thing...I can't ever remember voting for Fredrico Lombardi for any post in the American gov't...and/or in Congress. Your hypocrisy is showing!!! You have NO IDEA WHO obama REALLY REPRESENTS!!!

He hates Catholics...he is 100% for abortion at any stage...he is pro-homosexual conduct and marriage etc. etc. etc. ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT IS AGAINST THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, AND MORALITY, HE LOVES. He is for "allah", not the True God.

How can Lombardi criticize any other country for guns when … [More]

The Vatican got the health care bill stuck up their azz, (abprtion & Contraceptives)but they are still nosing into business that is none of theirs.

They are backing a Muslim
(WTH is wrong with them?)

Tell me about God, Save my soul, let me decide about illegals, health care and my guns.

As a Catholic I say let the pope AND Obama give up THEIR armed body guards first!
