According to the book of Exodus, Moses needed his brother Aaron to do all of his speaking for him. Apparently, Pope Francis is needing his own Aaron, because the Pontiff is once again in trouble for something he said.
Here is an excerpt from an AP story titled “Vatican seeks to quell Mexican anger over pope’s drug comment“:
The Vatican sought Wednesday to defuse a diplomatic tiff with Mexico after Pope Francis referred to the possible “Mexicanization” of his native Argentina from drug trafficking, the latest instance of Francis’ casual speaking style getting him into trouble.
The Vatican said it had sent an official diplomatic note to Mexico’s ambassador insisting that Francis “absolutely did not intend to offend the Mexican people” with the remark, or to detract from the government’s anti-drug efforts.
This isn’t the first time that the Pontiff’s intended message came out wrong. For example, in the past, he has said things that have been misinterpreted as an endorsement of Communism. As explained by Breitbart writer Michael Patrick Leahy, the Pontiff later clarified by proclaiming, “The Marxist ideology is wrong.”
Will Pope Francis be able to remove his foot from his mouth this time? The World waits to see.
