Pope’s quotes: Terrorism is a dead-end street

 |  The Francis Chronicles

A quote from Pope Francis:

“I want to say, with great humility, that terrorism is bad! It is bad in its origins and it is bad in its results. It is bad because it is born of hate, and it is bad in its results because it does not construct, it destroys! May all people understand that the path of terrorism does not help. The way of terrorism is fundamentally criminal. I pray for all these victims and for all victims of terrorism in the world. Please, no more terrorism! It is a dead-end street.”

-- Before the tomb commemorating victims of terrorism in Israel, May 27, 2014
