Pope Francis: there are limits to freedom of expression

On a plane from Sri Lanka to the Philippines today, the head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis talked about the recent Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris. While defending freedom of expression saying its a fundamental human right, he also said ‘you cannot insult the faith of others’
"One cannot provoke, one cannot insult other people’s faith, one cannot make fun of faith. There is a limit. Every religion has its dignity...in freedom of expression there are limits.”
He gestured to a friend and said “If my good friend Dr Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch. It’s normal. It’s normal. You cannot provoke. You cannot insult the faith of others. You cannot make fun of the faith of others.”

You are right Mr Pope, there is limit to freedom of expression when religion is involved, those who feel dat they can dent d image of prophet Muhammad (SAW) will face d wrath of Allah. No Muslim has ever made bad comment about Jesus.

christie benjamin said...

He's kinda right but it is applicable in religious aspect....you don't insult people's faith and call it expression of your right to speak...

You know....it's like the pope read my mind.
One cannot insult me or say any hurtful thing to me and expect me not to react. This is not to say I support the killings by the terrorists but why would d cartoonist draw clearly offensive pictures if the Islam religion. I am Christian so don't think I am defending the way the terrorist reacted.
I really concur with d Pope that there should be a limit to freedom of expression, so that people don't think its is right to insult or abuse another's character and call it freedom of expression.

According to the New Testament, after a person curses your mother, no punch is to be expected. You should forgive even in the face of further provocative words said by that person about your mother. Na so Christianity teach us o. New Testament cancel an eye for an eye even though na dat one for sweet pass.

RareSpecie Z said...

I humbly disagree with the Pontiff. Freedom of speech as an Art should have no limit unless it goes contrary to the Law of the Land or Society. We exist as a country base on agreement entered (Social Contract) to abide by certain norms, rules and regulations which if broken will attract sanctions. The law of the land should be superior to any law an individual or group within the system are tryin to generate for their own selfish purpose. This is the only antidote to anarchy. We must learn to be tolerant n our actions should be guided by laws. If you feel offended by anybody's action, the Court is there for you to seek redress.

Anonymous said...

No. But it is enough to get you punched. Read btw the lines, he didn't say it's okay to kill. We all need a little bit of common sense in this life

Oco said...

I do not totally agree with Pope,
Before you judge me please note I'm a Christian.
I do not understand why men should kill in the name of religion. Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and many more. It is absolutely ridiculous that we should kill in the name GOD who is supreme and can take care of himself. Whatever the provocation is , why take it personal and act on His behalf. Unless he is no God, he should be able to avenge/forgive wrongs.
I believe religion is about submitting to higher authority, if this Authority can't balance wrongs or bring peace then is no authority and does not DESERVE to be worshiped. If this Authority, All powerful and Mighty, needs me to kill to bring balance or avenge wrongs. Then is better I fend for myself because I'm the AUTHORITY.
I understand there may be spiritual gains on following the rules or teachings of these POWERS.
But hey! I'm a Man not a spirit. Oh Yeah what about Faith! Sure is a beautiful thing but at least we have senses to reason.
Let me say this? if you kill for disdain or blasphemy or any reason for any GOD. I do not think that God is an Authority or all powerful anymore. I think you are because I fear not the god but YOU.
Let me take you further, most of you will probably criticize this write up, what if I tell you this WRITE UP is my God and I see any kind of negative view as disdain or blasphemy to my GOD and I will probably kill you for it. Will you see me as insane?
My point here is there will be no one left to worship our GOD if we all go after one another because of differences in Opinion and expression.
Maybe the world will be a better place if we do. After-all they don't need us, it is we that need Them.

Let me borrow part of a speech

After all:
"What manner of men are we then, if we do not have our reason, We are all no better than beasts in a jungle if that were the case. But we have reason, we can reason with each other and we can reason with ourselves."

Adiรณs.

Idiot!!! The man hasn't said that you should slap anyone who insults your mother, he is only saying that's what you should expect. Even in criminal, provocation mitigates responsibility.

It's right to bridle one's tongue. But if people say things they are not supposed to say. Does that mean they should be killed? Killing or taking another life doesn't n will Never justify it. How many times have people said or do things against our CREATOR, and He watches us in Heaven. Let the God of justice always fight for those who blasphem. N not to take a soul. I am not in support of what they did though. But there are other punishment instead of taking ones LIFE.

In ur mind u av spoken well. Oya since dere is no limitations go to d north nd say something derogatory abt d Islamic religion nd lemme knw if ur head remains on ur neck. This is common sense(whuch is obviously nt common), don't provoke anoda person to act in a certain way. He's not sayin it is rite to kill buh then we shud also be able to take woteva reaction out statements bring. Expect a reaction from ur actions or remarks buh it also doesn't justify d reaction too. So for peace sake watch ur tongue. Dnt come here nd act all intelligent wen its obvious dat dere is nufin up dere. Be realistic 4 once in ur life abeg, nt for ur sake buh for oda pple. Cos trust me condemnation will also be on u dat provokes anoda persons' action

Buh den again who am I to knw ur mind. Jst knw dat God sees d hrt of man nd rewards accordingly

Chinenye ojei said...

Dis is sooooooo true. All of u sayin dat he is advocating for ' an eye for an eye', read his message again nd if u r still confused read d whole message nt jst dis bit buh d whole thing. One shudnt say things ( gud or bad) and nt expect a reaction ( gud or bad too) buh dat also doesn't make d reaction rite or wrong. The Bible tells us to tolerate buh we shud also nt test odas. D Bible even says that we shud nt put the Lord God to d test. So don't say something that will most likely lead to a bad reaction nd expect d oda to keep quiet. Act accordingly nd speek accordingly. Christians, Muslims, Jews, and oda religious pple let us watch our tongues nd let peace reign. All our comments are reactions to his statement buh nt all of dem were typed by pple who knw wot COMMON SENSE is.

The world started having problems when people refused to use COMMON SENSE, another sad thing is: most people don't even have common sense. Pope Francis was human before he became pope and it's human to react when someone insults you, it's only divine intervention and your belief in God that will make you not react violently. With a lil common sense, anybody can correctly understand what that pope said. I pray for such wisdom as Francis's.

Anonymous said...

Nobody is condoning killing. The point the pope is saying you should not hide behind free speech and insult others:it is akin to provoking and when u provoke u cannot anticipate the reaction.

Dude are you for real?... U r very shallow oo and am not sorry to say. What do u expect from a man of God and you are definitely a Christian and as I can tell, u don't ff d words of your holy book. You are not feeling this pope?! What do u want? A crusader dat will go and revenge abi. Smh wake up go and look for the New Testament bcos things have changed since your time. Dence fellow

Gasparri can expect a punch....but be ready for a 7-blow punch in reply. People will always say thing and do provocative things. We live on earth not HEAVEN...virtuous men reply with Good.
