Early this morning, Sarah Silverman urged “gun boners” (her oh-so-classy word for Second Amendment supporters) to heed this comment from Pope Francis:

Silverman neglected to mention that the Pope made this remark during his appeal for peace in Syria. Here is the context:

There are so many conflicts in this world which cause me great suffering and worry, but in these days my heart is deeply wounded in particular by what is happening in Syria and anguished by the dramatic developments which are looming. I appeal strongly for peace, an appeal which arises from the deep within me. How much suffering, how much devastation, how much pain has the use of arms carried in its wake in that martyred country, especially among civilians and the unarmed! I think of many children will not see the light of the future! With utmost firmness I condemn the use of chemical weapons: I tell you that those terrible images from recent days are burned into my mind and heart. There is a judgment of God and of history upon our actions which are inescapable! Never has the use of violence brought peace in its wake. War begets war, violence begets violence.

[Emphasis added.]

As far as we know, Pope Francis has not said anything about gun control. In any case, what does his statement decrying the use of chemical weapons in Syria have to do with regulation of guns in the U.S.?

If anything, his mention of increased suffering among the unarmed in Syria seems like an argument for owning guns.

    The honorable Pope has security.

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        A fella named Mehmet Ali Agca might have something to do with that…

        • arrow2010

          So the Pope deserves security, but not the rest of us.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            That’s not what Pope Francis was saying at all. He was calling for peace in Syria and asking the Syrian Branch of the Nazi Party to stop using chemical weapons on the innocent.

          • DelRanger

            Thanks for saving me the time of responding to some people who do not know how to read… such as Lilu Kanine, Leo Gessford and arrow2010

          • Friode28

            You left out the esteemed Ms. Silverman.

          • Leo Gessford Jr.

            Thanks for showing how much of a dumb-a$$ you are

          • Bill Phillips

            And that has WHAT EXACTLY to do with rifles & handguns?

          • Will B Good

            Bless your heart, Bill, but you’re a forgetful one.

            Mehmet Ali Agca shot Pope John Paul II a couple of months after Hinckley tried to assassinate Ronald Reagan, dear.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            Nothing. Just like His Holiness’s comments. Silverman took his comments out of context.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            He wasn’t saying ANYTHING about rifles or handguns. Silverman twisted it into a commentary on American gun politics.

          • CountryBoy

            Which ones, the Terrorists or the Government… BOTH have used chemical weapons.

          • Calcat36

            As the Vicar of Christ, he should have the same protection that Jesus did. Since the Cat-liks equate him with Jesus, maybe he should not fear a bullet, or a tree and a few nails?

            Then again, since he does, he is MORE EQUAL than Christ.

            That sh*t makes sense… In the Twilight Zone.

          • CountryBoy

            NO.. We Don’t equate the Pope to Jesus…not even close…. He is simply the head of the Catholic Church….the modern day St.Peter.

      • Jay Stevens

        “The honorable Pope has security”, very competent security, “armed to the teeth”.

        • Calcat36

          Like Jesus had? I believe it was one man with a sword. That Jesus rebuked when that man cut off an ear…

          • CountryBoy

            If there weren’t so many loons in this world like you, then the pope would not need them either.

          • Leo Gessford Jr.

            was that before or after someone parted the sea? lol

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      His Holiness was not speaking on the topic of individual ownership of firearms. He was speaking on the subject of Syria and their branch of the Nazi Party’s use of chemical weapons against their citizens.

      • MarciaJ

        Context greatly affects the meaning.

        • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

          As a writer, I love context. It is fun to play with.

          Isnt that part of the standard liberal operating policy? When fact dont support their aganda just make stuff up anyways. Kinda like Sarah did here.

    • Calcat36

      And the bullet proof pope-mobile. Since when do the liberals get behind a pro-heterosexual, pro-traditional family, pro-life by doctrine of faith Catholic pope?

      • cardinaldave10

        When they can manipulate his words to serve their agenda.

        • Calcat36

          QUICK! Name the last pope these idiots supported! One that they did not want to kill!

      • Ryan Schneider.

        There is a misconception that most Jesuits are liberal that is a popular myth among liberals, so naturally they extend that wishful thought to the Pope. Also, he puts a bit more emphasis on “love the sinner”, then on “hate the sin”, and the left, unable to comprehend the concept of sin, only heard “hate” from pope Benedict, and now only hear “love” from Francis.

        • Jay Stevens

          Jesuits? Liberal?

          • Ryan Schneider.

            Yeah…..Anibele Bugnini had several unusually liberal Jesuits on his staff, and he was the favorite archbishop among liberal ‘catholics’ for years. Even after that false priest’s exile, those rogue Jesuits managed to stay vocal in such a way that somehow perpetuated the notion among the more ignorant liberals of all strips that Jesuits as a whole had grown more liberal since Vatican 2.

      • Orwellian_Dilemma

        I think when he becomes vehemently anti-capitalism, pro-stalinism, anti-gun, pro-dictator pope.

      • Baldy1957

        Since they’re all blind, being led by the blind guide. God will not be mocked.

    • MikeTX62

      “The honorable Pope” has HEAVILY ARMED security. Also, he wasn’t speaking against GUNS, he was speaking against VIOLENCE.

      • Calcat36

        So if I am heavily enriched by a positive cash flow, may I speak out against POVERTY? You know, as the filthy rich vatican does, yet does NOTHING to ummm redistribute its own wealth?

        Are you in the Twilight Zone?

        • MikeTX62

          Actually, the Catholic Church does a lot every day worldwide to help the poor and less fortunate. Unfortunately, too many people concentrate on the bad stuff like pedophile priests abusing young boys, and they totally ignore the good stuff the church does every day throughout the world.

  • James Westfall

    Every time I hear or see anything from Silverman I actually pray for her. Always seems like she’s so eaten up with mental illness that it has left her dead inside as a human being. I can’t contemplate that sort of void inside me. It must be terrible. I don’t want to make excuses for her horrible behavior or her rudeness, but I do well and truly pity her.

    • Richard J Sunkle

      I saw her on Talking Dead last season and that poor girl was just struggling to appear outrageous.

      • NRPax

        Upvote for using “Talking Dead” to refer to that show.

        • aztectrumpet

          Talking Dead is the name of the show. Why wouldn’t he use it?

          • NRPax

            I refer to the AMC show “The Walking Dead” as “The Talking Dead” and took that as an implication she was on the former. I was unaware that it was the name of an actual show.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            Yeah, AMC has a talk show on immediately afterwards to decompress and discuss the episode. The BBC does the same thing with Doctor Who incidentally.

          • NRPax

            I was thinking more along the lines of “You people talk too d$#& much!” If these are the survivors of a zombie apocalypse, I’d rather take my chances on my own. -:-)

          • Ryan Schneider.

            I take it you have only seen it on Netflix, which does not include the talk show.

          • NRPax

            I used to record it on DVR, then gave up after the second season.

          • Calcat36

        • Hot_wings

          Talking Dead is a discussion show that stars Chris Hardwick that follows The Walking Dead. Every Sunday Chris has guests on that usually include the cast members and some celebs that are avid fans of TWD. That wasn’t meant as a slam against the show.

          • NRPax

            Again: Mea culpa for not being informed. I do slam the show because it began to suck and there were a lot of moments where I was cheering on the zombies.

    • DC is Evil

      I think you are likely correct on this. She’s clearly got some issues/demons she is battling.

    • TundraThunder

      Hon? She would never be a “hon” of mine!

    This truly is the end of days. Sarah Silverman, the anti-Christ, quoting the Pope.

    • MNWoman

      She is disgusting, isn’t she?

      I have only seen bits and pieces of her ‘act’ and it is apalling.

    • Jay Stevens

      Deliberately quoting out of context is almost like misquoting.

  • MNWoman

    I don’t think it is so much that she neglected to say the Pope was talking about Syria since, like most lefties, she just reads the parts she wants to read.

    Kind of like the outrage over Phil Robertson. If they took the time to read the entire interview, they would see he wasn’t being hateful.

    Another thing, if she wants her followers or whoever else to start taking the Pope’s suggestions to heart, she would probably be out of a job. I am quite certain the Pope would consider he behavior sinful.

    Isn’t it interesting how the lefties preach about Catholicism when it suits their agenda while most often denouncing everything the Church stands for?

    • Readhed

      Exactly. She listens to the Pope on abortion? Gay marriage? Sin? Doubtful.

    • Ryan Schneider.

      The popular myth among leftists that all Jesuits are liberal has contributed to the stupidity. The feminists in Argentina are under no such delusion, as they were burning his Holines in effigy earlier this month.

  • PeterP

    When you feel like a misfit in society you have 2 choices: 1) improve yourself; or 2) mock and attack that society to make yourself feel superior. Guess which one Sarah Silverman chose.

    • Spiny Norman

      Objectively speaking, she’s not physically unattractive (at least in TV make-up), but as soon as she opens her mouth, the instinctive response is, “Oh, just shut the f— up!” Her attitude and her “humor” make her repulsive.

      That’s probably intentional. I have to wonder, what sort of emotional trauma did she suffer that leaves her stuck in a “mean and spiteful 12-year-old” stage?

      • Calcat36

        Her father did it to her. As usual.

  • Bob Cole

    Also, the statement from the Pope says something about “civilians and the unarmed”. That sounds like a pretty solid endorsement of the right to keep and bear arms to resist tyrrany to me.

  • Republicanvet

    Listen up Silverman. The Pope is also against abortion. How much suffering and devastation has abortion carried in its wake?

    • Clete Torres

      That’s different. Libs are for abortion so his comments don’t count.

  • JeffWRidge

    People have been killing each other since the dawn of time. Long before the first gun was conceived of, there was war and murder. Arms means weapons – all weapons: guns, knives, swords, axes, even sticks and rocks. The problem is not the tools used to harm others; it’s the people who wish to do the harm to others.

    It’s interesting that she notes that many of the people who have been harmed are “unarmed.” The best way for someone to not be a victim, is to have the ability to fight back. That means having guns.

  • Tim Horan

    Like a lot of liberals, she didn’t take time to find out what was in it (the statement). She was waiting for the fog to clear from all the facts but did want to get her comment out to the common folks.

  • Daniele Moseley

    Hey trash..You better listen up to somebody girl.. looking at your picture i see nothing classy about you…Pretty disgusting if you ask me..And you do not know what you are talking about..

      No, no, it’s different because they can use it to promote one of their big ideas and slam the right at the same time.

    and how disgusting that the VILE Sarah Silverman would even quote His Holiness…..doubt she holds him in high regard in the first place.

  • YesterdayzNewz

    Last night, I walked out of work with slightly more than $500 in cash on me. Mind you, $300 of it was for Christmas shopping, but to an imbecile like her, I was an easy target. As long as there isn’t more than five attackers, I’m good. P good.

  • Jake

    Good thing I’m not Catholic then

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      TBQF: Silverman needs to go to confession for this little act of False Witness.

  • Iron Mike

    I would tell the pope the same thing I tell the demo-marxists that want to disarm law abiding citizens! When guns are outlawed only murdering criminals will have guns (look at Chicago, Mexico and DC). Maybe Jesus says to turn the cheek, well this agnostic plans to put a bullet in you if you try to rob my arse!

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      That’s not what His Holiness was saying. He was calling for the Syrians to stop fighting and for the Syrian Branch of the Nazi Party to stop using chemical weapons against their own people. Ms. Silverman is guilty of Bearing False Witness.

    • Ryan Schneider.

      I am sure his Holines is well aware of the importance of personal defense. I wouldn’t walk the streets of Argentina without a gun; in addition to every kind of thief targeting tourists, there are demonic feminist fanatics running around castrating openly Catholic men, if they can corner them.

  • TheNewNormal

    Perhaps Ms. Silverman should listen to the Dalai lama, “If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.”

    • stang2000

      Great example.

  • Tman95

    Wouldn’t it be nice if all the California and New York elitist, snots would concentrate on completing the destruction of their OWN States, and leave the rest of us alone? If we’re so ingnorant, inbred, and inferior, why waste time on us? Why don’t Lisa, Kathy, and all the other “superiors” go clean up East L.A., or Oakland, or the seedy parts of Harlem, Manhattan, or Brooklyn? Why does anyone pay them attention?

    • NRPax

      Because it grates on their nerves that we don’t live the “correct” way and it falls upon them to drag us to Secher Nbiw.

      • Spinmamma

        That, and because cleaning up those areas requires doing more than emitting vile speech.

      The Catholic Church? Or the poor sinners who acted in the name of God and Holy Mother Church?

      • I_KICK_HIPPIES

        Not bashing Catholicism – but the pope doesn’t speak for all Christians.
        And down vote all you like but that does not rewrite history.

        • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

          There have been plenty of Bad Popes and times when Hell held sway over the College of Cardinals, but the Church as a whole is a historical force for good in this world. Even one of the worst Popes, Pope Paul III, was one of the founders of the Abolition movement with his anti-slavery edicts. Granted, that might have been written by someone else though, as he might have been busy inspecting his child porn at the time…

          • Calcat36

            Vatican II puts the pope on equal ground with Christ. That is BLASPHEMY as any idiot can learn that Jesus said He was the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father but through Him.
            popes, and religious hierarchy is what Jesus came to DESTROY, along with brain dead praying like the rosary and the Cat-lick mass.

            Jesus did indeed instruct how to pray…

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            Vatican II did no such thing. The Pope is not on the same level as Christ, he is the Steward tasked with caring for the Church on Earth much as Eliakim was tasked with tending to the Kingdom of Judah in the absence of the king. It is why Christ handed Cephas the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven after admonishing three times to care for His flock, that was the symbol of the stewards or viceroys empowered to act in the King’s stead when said king was absent across the ancient world.

            And to quote Him: Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. (Matthew 5-17)

        • Calcat36

          Hey Hippie, did you know a fact that most Cat-liks do not? Vatican II put the Inquisition on HOLD, and never denounced it?

    • Ryan Schneider.

      So, name me one denomination that did not have leaders who were sinners, that never made mistakes, were free of every kind of elitism and abuse of power. Find me that, and I will join that denomination. Until then, I will follow the successor of the Rock, who denied Christ three times, then became stronger in spite of it. I build my house on the Rock.

      • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

        The Rock named as such by Christ Himself and placed as the cornerstone of the Church.

        • Calcat36

          That is FALSE. Jesus never told the asshat that denied Him three times that he was a rock. Are you stupid? Petros and petra ring a bell?

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            Jesus spoke Aramaic, and in Aramaic there is only one word for rock, Cephas. Aramaic is a gender neutral language. Greek, on the other hand, is a gendered language. As such the masculine name for one who is as or like stone – Petros – and the feminine word for a building stone – petras – are separated. And a reminder, Peter was also the FIRST to confirm Him as the Son of God and was the leader of the Apostles following Christ’s ascension into heaven after Christ told him three times to tend the flock.

  • Rob Jackson

    That is not “anti gun” that is a condemnation of use of weapons of any kind over the span of all history. Funny how condemning use of arms in violence becomes a tool of people who don’t want law abiding citizens to have guns.

  • Snap N McGarrett

    “…the USE of arms…” as in close to 100 million unarmed people slaughtered by their own governments. Namely, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Castro – all heroes of the left.

    How many lives have been saved by the lawful possession of arms?

    • MrApple

      And where was the Catholic Church in its complacency and compliancy with the Nazis in the late 1930s and early 1940s?

      • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

        Pope Pius XII as Carmelango to Pope Pius XI wrote the first and only Papal Bull – Mit Brender Sorge – in a language other than Latin which explicitly condemned Fascism in general and – not just because it was written in German in 1937 – Nazism in particular. Throughout WWII, Pius XI and later Pius XII worked in secret with resistance groups against the Nazis and the Soviets to oppose both those nations and to smuggle Jews, Gypsys, and other targets of the Third Reich out.

      • Spinmamma

        I used to think that also. But it was Nazi propaganda. Modern historians have shown the truth is the exact opposite. Jews were even hidden within the Vatican. I am sure you know that the Nazis, and the Communists, targeted Catholic priests and nuns to begin with in order to destroy competition to their secular authority and to demoralize the people.

      • Ryan Schneider.

  • littleones

    Maybe she should pay attention to some of the other things he is saying….

    • Spinmamma

      First thing that crossed MY mind. Silverman is now listening to the Pope? Then I read the silly out of context tweet. Nope.

  • MrApple

    If Silverman and the Pope don’t care for the 2nd Amendment then they can both feel free to NOT keep and bear arms. Don’t tell me how to live or what I need or don’t need for my safety.

    • nickdqwk

      I’m not sure the Pope is addressing the 2nd Amendment, it seems he is addressing the evil and hurtful way that arms are being used in Syria. I don’t think there is any mention of Chicago, Detroit, or any other US city where the gun rights of the lawful citizens has been sharply infringed upon.

      As for Silverman I don’t really care if she is willing to forgo her rights I wish to keep mine and not be a victim.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      Read the section which Silverman quoted out of context. He is calling for peace in Syria and condemning the Syrian Branch of the Nazi Party for their use of chemical weapons against their own citizens.

  • Ghenghis Greg

    Silly Silly Silverman, Popes have being saying that since men invented the crossbow. Didn’t work then, won’t work now. “The devastating effect of the crossbow and the wounds it could inflict are reflected by early weapon bans. In April 1139, the Second Lateran Council, under Pope Innocent II, banned the use of the crossbow against Christians” So ,maybe when all governments and people destroy their arms, I will get rid of mine.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      Yeah, and that worked so well then.

    • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Now, Crusaders using them against Muslims, well, that’s a whole ‘nother story…

      • Ghenghis Greg

        The crossbow allowed a common man or even a weak peasant with a day’s training to take down a highly trained and armored knight from a distance. The bolts went right through the best armor. It enabled a small band of untrained common folk to exert power and that is what scared the Pope and all other rulers. Sarah Silverman like all liberal elites are afraid of the common people having power,

        • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

          It also made it easier for nations to wage war against each other because the Crossbow is – as you pointed out – a point and shoot weapon. Not defending the Lateran treaty, just pointing out the Church’s opposition to war makes sense here.

          • Ghenghis Greg

            Oppose war, yes I expect religious leaders to do that. Sometimes it’s just unavoidable and unfortunate. I believe in peace through a strong defense. Which is what the 2nd Amendment does it’s a check and balance.

          • Ghenghis Greg

            Also I wasn’t trying to sound Anti-Catholic, about the Pope, just illustrating that technological changes like the crossbow, the AK-47 and future 3D printed guns will always change the balance of power.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            Oh, I know. I just wanted to point that out. Armies got larger after the invention of the Crossbow and the casualties went up because it was easier to outfit an army with ranged weapons. While I have no doubt the Pope at the time was a born and bred Aristocrat who supported the feudal order, the sheer increase in casualties was likely a major factor in banning the use of Crossbows in christian conflicts. Especially this soon after the Taborites had gone nuts with crossbows over in Silesia.

  • adam

    Someone should tell these atheists that the Pope doesn’t speak for all Christians. Not since that little reformation thing.

      His Holiness doesn’t even agree with the words she claims he said!

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    At her age, she should be glad anyone’s going to get a boner where she’s involved. Solidly into MILFitude now, Sassy. Pajama Boy’s newly-befouled dirty sweatsocks might be the evidence of that. Can you deal with that image, mama?

  • Zathras11 @B5

    So the Pope hasn’t read the Bible? “Thou shalt not kill.” is ACTUALLY always mistranslated. The correct translation is “Thou shalt not take innocent life.” Abortion out. Killing your neighbor because his dog craps on your lawn is out. Using a weapon in war is acceptable, as is defending your home. The Pope is simply wrong on this one. He is, after all, only human.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      His Holiness is calling for the Syrians to stop fighting and for the Syrian Branch of the Nazi Party to stop using chemical weapons against the people who live there. You are right, the Commandment is against murder, but Christ himself said “Blessed are the Peace Makers” and that is what the Pope is trying to do. And besides, any deliberate attack on civilians is murder.

    • Ryan Schneider.

      There are stupid wars that cause far, far more harm to the innocent then any potential benefits for anyone. That is the kind of war in Seria, so Pope Francis is right in this case.

  • Mark Singerman

    When illogical people develop a belief (as Sarah has about gun control), they filter all new information through the paradigm of that belief rather than through the paradigm of truth and reason. And I don’t mean to denigrate her by saying her belief is illogical, though, some might consider that a bit harsh. Rather, I’m saying just that: it’s illogical, as in “not based and/or backed by logic”. Strong statistics easily prove the shaky logic of “more gun control is a means to end deaths by guns”. I think that answers why she might take something someone reputable said out of context or otherwise felt no need to research further than a tweet she felt implied or related to her beliefs as true.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    Okay, Sarah Slobbermouth, what’s YOUR opinion on the the War in Syria?… (Crickets…) …Compared to the rest of the World (And there’s a LOT of it out there), Actual GUN VIOLENCE IN THE U.S. is MINISCULE, in comparison….Oh yeah… And also, The SECOND AMENDMENT! But you don’t care, you probably have armed security personnel to keep you safe… Jawamax 8<{D}

  • Ernie Seagraves

    Even the Pope speaks from fear. What does God do when people do no listen. He takes them into bondage, for retraining.

  • Howard Roark

    Didn’t the use of arms open the gates of the Nazi death camps?

    Didn’t the use of arms turn back the Nazi conquest of Europe?

    Didn’t the use of arms turn back the Muslim conquest at the gates of Vienna?

    Didn’t the Disciples of Christ carry swords when they accompanied Jesus on His travels?

    “If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with you own gun” ~The Dalai Lama

    Next facile argument, Sarah?

    acts of violence should be remembered, and then forgiveness should be extended to the perpetrators.

    But if someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, he said, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.

    doesn’t really make a lot of sense, the general Catholic stance on carrying guns, seeing as how the person they consider the first pope, Peter, began carrying a sword after Jesus told him to

    • truckee22

      He was talking about war in general and the war in Syria in particular. He wasn’t taking a position on gun ownership or gun rights.

      • Justin Hill

        Right, but the general avenue of thought/ideology, call it what you will, among Catholics in the US is for strict gun control

        • truckee22

          I can’t speak for all Catholics, but this one has to yet to meet any that are anti-gun or gun grabbers. I’ve never heard it mentioned at Mass or during any church activity. The church is anti war, anti violence , and pro life, but I don’t think they are particularly anti gun ownership.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      The Church doesn’t really like guns and arms in general because She doesn’t like people using them on each other for murder or war, but She also recognizes their legitimate use in self-defense and in a Just War.

  • truckee22

    I wish that people would read what he said and not just the headline. It’s the same thing as Phil Robertson, they are cherry picking one sentence out of the whole thing and twisting it into something entirely different.
    The pope didn’t say he was against guns or gun ownership. He was talking about the war in Syria and the suffering there. That’s it.

  • PeterP

    When a person realizes she’ll never fit in she pretends 2 loathe all that she had previously wished she was part of. She doesn’t really loathe societal norms, she loathes the fact that those norms do not encompass her. She calls her self an iconoclast. We call her hypocrite.

  • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

    If it wasn’t for lack of context, leftists wouldn’t have anything.

  • PeterP

    If you desperately want to be admitted into a certain social group and that group repeatedly rejects you, you will eventually pretend to loathe what you formerly admired and loved. Iconoclasts like Sarah Silverman only hate tradition because tradition rejected them. Reaction formation.

    • PeterP

      Like people who desperately want to be rich expressing their hatred for the rich.

  • Spinmamma

    My advice is not to assume anything Ms. Silverman says has any basis in fact, especially when she holds forth about what the Pope, or any other Christian leader or writer says or thinks. She is like every other liberal celebrity–shallow and dishonest. Also, even though she sometimes wears a cross–it would appear just to upset other Jews, she says she is Jewish.

  • Dennis the Dreamer

    But the Pope has armed security when he travels around the globe.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      Check the context of the Pope’s statement. He wasn’t opposing gun ownership. He was calling for peace in Syria.

  • jabberwocky

    Now everyone who is anti Catholic cares what the pope says because it fits their own agenda

  • JDW

    Another special sort of stupid. Never mind the Pope’s stand on contraception (against), abortion (against), sex out of wedlock (against), etc., etc., etc.

  • Jack Burnett

  • Clete Torres

    Sarah Silverfish has armed security keeping her safe. As do the movie and television studios she frequents.

    Yet we shouldn’t have them to ensure our own security. Right.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    La Silverman is so in love with “Straw Men” (check out her YouTube page, if you can stomach it), she should play Dorothy in The Wizard Of Oz, if she can find some theater company to put it on for her– although, to be honest, she’s better cast as the Wicked Witch of the West.

    Funny how the people calling for gun control all live in gated communities with private armed security, travel in limos and have personal (armed) bodyguards. I’ve not heard anyone who lives in a neighborhood overrun by hoodlums on welfare, crack sales and robbery income, who drives his clunker to work every day and who walks to the corner store call for stripping themselves of the only protection they have in this new world of subsidized and glorified hooliganism.

    The Pope is also for The Unborn Child – and thus, follow the line of Pope-ish thought….he is against abortion – all abortions, for any reason.
    Listen up ‘Pro-Choice’ (aka pro-abortion) (insert word Sarah used here) ‘B——s’.
    Wow, that sure clears up all issues & problems…
    What Would The Pope Do?
    The man has many views on many topics………some you will love, some you will detest. Then again, he heads a billion-gazillion dollar industry known as The Roman Catholic Church….even after paying off all – scratch that – ‘some’ of the families of the abused children – the RCC has plenty of money to spare, and The Pope is the CEO.

    That’s strange, Hollywood Jewish liberals like Silverman are usually mocking and ridiculing the Pope and Christians in general. Note how they quote Christian doctrine and the Pope when they utter something left wingers like. Then 15 minutes later they blast the Pope on abortion and homosexuality.

  • LegalizeShemp

    Hollywood loves mentally ill people, they become millionaires spewing liberal BS.

  • missyree68

    Oh brilliant Sarah when you make sure everyone that includes the criminals, thieves, and all who harm. When you can do that (and you can’t), we might talk or at least listen to you but at this point you are just an ignorant, uninformed, misinformed reprobate. I think in this case YOU are as smart as you look (like NOT). Criminals usually have unregistered guns and do not buy them from gun stores.

  • AJ Ketchum

    She also trimmed the very sentence she “quoted”. It continues, “especially among civilians and the unarmed.” That could be constued as being FOR arming the inocent (in Syria). It is all in which way you read his remarks.

  • hamburgersrule

    Not as many as swords, knives and clubs through out history. Get real!

  • WisconsinPatriot

    He is the Pope, You are semitic. Why do you care what he has to say? His comments were delivered in Syria, to Syrians. Again….how is this applicable. Both you and the Pope have armed security. Are you that “special” snowflake?

    Why do Jewish people in America consistently hate the 2nd Amendment? They want to take away all America’s guns, but Israelis get to keep Uzis at home? And Sarah Silverman makes fun of Gentiles every chance she gets, so why is she suddenly listening to the Pope? She sucks anyway.

    Another never has been “comic” trying to stir up interest by being controversial. Why anyone cares what someone whose entire joke repertoire revolves around sex jokes, and bodily functions, is beyond me.

  • Ryan Johnson

    Do we need more proof that liberals don’t actually care about the Pope because they believe in Jesus (’cause they don’t), but so that the Pope can presumably “stick it” to people that DO believe in Jesus?

  • Zach Smith

    He doesn’t mention guns at all. He decries the suffering inflicted on the unarmed. It doesn’t sound at all like a gun control message to me.

    For some reason the left seems to desperately want the Pope’s approval for their agenda, like when they were trying to make it seem like he supported homosexuality.

  • E L Frederick

    Yeah, I pay about as much attention to the Pope as I do Silverman… which is to say, none at all.

  • paw516

    Now do you really expect Silverman to give ALL the facts of the quote?

  • Windy Wilson

    his mention of increased suffering among the unarmed in Syria seems like an argument for owning guns is an inconvenient truth to the pro-mugger and murderer crowd.

  • 1crappie2

    Believe it or not the good book also talks about the need to turn plowshares into swords. No I didn’t misspeak, it’s there under Joel 3:10

    “How much suffering, how much devastation, how much pain has the use of arms carried in its wake in that martyred country, especially among civilians and the unarmed!”

    No, he’s not calling for “gun-control”, he’s pointing out the fact that the “unarmed” are victims. He’s actually calling for less “gun-control” and calling for the arming the arming of potential victims. Here’s why….

    The proper response, when someone is shooting at you is to shoot back. You will need a gun for this. It is also the only way to protect an innocent, If you care as much about people as you think you do. If you do not have a gun, call police. Why? Because they have a gun. / Reread paragraph until it sinks in.

  • American-By-Choice

    Pope who, said what?

    I was created with certain rights and each of those are sustained by certain responsibilities. And since “Pope” isn’t bearing my responsibilities, he doesn’t have a say in what I do… so, well… you know.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      Please read the actual quote from the Pope and not what Sarah claims he said. The Pope was calling for peace in Syria.

      • American-By-Choice

        Makes sense… But to get Peace In Syria, you’ll need to rid the place of Muslims.

        What the Pope needs to do, is to take a stand against Islam… promote the international BANNING of the Cult, along with the innumerable strains of collectivism that use it to attack individual freedom. But to do THAT… he’d need to ban Catholicism and I don’t see THAT coming anytime soon.

        • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

          That would be a violation of the freedom of religion entitled to all persons. I am no fan of Islam, but one has the right to become a Muslim.

          • American-By-Choice

            Just as their is no freedom to endorse the murder of some person, there is no freedom to endorse those who practice murder, in pursuit of the power to enslave those who lacked the resolve to reject them.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            And not all Muslims are violent or in favor of enslaving those who do not practice their faith. To paint with such a broad brush is a sign one has stared into the abyss for far too long.

        The “Witch Burnings” were not a function of the Christian Faith… They were a means to acquire power by collectivists, who of course, just as they do today, needed to foment a popular consensus… and what better way to do THAT than to claim ya saw the DEVIL! and can cure EVIL…

        Naturally, to cure evil, ya need to employ such… and so it goes.

        Islam is a function of collectivism… a sad little extension of tribalism. And the only thing that stands as more lethal to innocent human life than disease, is Collectivism. Which is to say Socialism and it’s kissin’ cousin… Islam.

        You can’t blame today’s Leftists for past acts in which they had no part in committing. But you can hold them accountable for the SIMILAR acts of murder, barbarism and cruelty which they are currently fomenting, through their advocacy of that upon which such acts depend.

        • Calcat36

            Indeed. This a result of Leftism… resting in Relativism, which rejects objectivity, which is essential to such concepts as ‘truth, justice. responsibility’, etc… all concepts which are ESSENTIAL to a viable culture.

    It’s an important question “How much suffering, how much devastation, how much pain has the use of arms carried in its wake.” The gun boners don’t seem to be able to understand it. Of course, the answer is so much that it’s beyond understanding. At least I hope they don’t understand that would be much better than the case if they just don’t care.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      Or, perhaps us “gun boners” disagree that removing the right to keep and bare arms would make the world a better place. Disarming the average person makes them a victim, arming them allows them to defend themselves from criminals and tyrants.

    • greylaw89

      I think I’m going to be a troll of enlightening comments against you, for your own comments all seem to be about gun control and you sow darkness and doubt wherever you go. You just don’t seem to understand Tom, the government is not omnipotent, despite you giving them more power and money. The criminals are getting guns Tom. The laws don’t help now. Why should we just give you more and more and more power when the next ones don’t work?

      “It’s an important question “How much suffering, how much devastation, how much pain has the use of arms carried in its wake.””

      Funny, that’s what the British Army said when they marched to seize the Rebels’ arms and cannon stored at Concord in 1775……..Thank G_d they failed, eh, Tommy-Boy? Otherwise, you wouldn’t have the freedom to be the Fascist you are, today!

  • Kingofthehill

    swords, bows and arrows have caused more devastation in history than guns have. People like this *unt SIlverman just looks for keywords and takes them out of context to sound smart or like she has some stupid point.

  • Guest

    I don’t Know, how many people were killed with pitch forks? How many people were killed with knifes? How many people were killed by others using their bare hands? If evil is in a person’s heart than it is the right of the potential victim to own a gun and blow that filthy heart out Sarah. Just a thought Pope.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      His Holiness was calling for peace in Syria, not the disarmament of the population as a whole. Please read the quote from Pope Francis where her claim came from.

  • gravevapors

    She is a moron…and not much of a comedian either. Who cares what she says.

  • Finkster

    Yeah, Just like the Pope back in the days of the Inquisition. They were against people having arms to defend themselves against the Tyranny of the Royals then also.
    If you was caught with a Bow & Arrows or a Sword they burned you at the stake. Only the Government and the Royals were allowed to be armed back in those days.
    Then, so they could fight the Devil at his own game, the Peasants came up with the idea of using a weapon he feared most. Pitch Forks.
    Same as today, just a different era. To control the masses they need to unarm the masses. It’s already been done in most of the world. The US is the last bastion hope for the Liberty in the world.
    The Pope is a Politician also. Most folks don’t realize how the Vatican has the status as a Nation in the world of governments. And the Vatican is going along with The New World Order as part of the Global Governance. As they have been since the ERA of Socializing Europe began back in the 1930’s. Of course that agenda is against Freedom to Bear Arms, just like Hitler and as most of the European Governments today are.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      1. Silverman’s “quote” from the Pope was taken so far out of context she should go to confession for bearing false witness. The Pope was calling for peace in Syria, not for stricter arms control in the civilized world.

      2. While yes, some of those seated upon the Cathedra Petri have called for the average person to be disarmed, that is no more the desire of the Papacy as a whole than Obama’s calls for disarmament are reflective of the Presidency as a whole.

      3. I have no idea where you got the possession of swords or bows and arrows meant burning at the stake idea. That is rather patently absurd. Most nations had plenty of men who survived by hunting, and most peasants across Europe had the right to take a certain number of game animals from the lands of the lords where their farms were located.

      4. The rest of this, honestly, looks like paranoid rambling.

      • Finkster

        Hey, if the Progressive Liberal can use propaganda to entice folks to support them, so can the rest of us. It’s just that there is truth in our facetious comments.

  • Bryan

    She failed to mention the fact that the vast majority of the devastation was perpetrated by governments on their unarmed populace

  • ArtBrecher

    Sarah Silverman is a moron and why TH would bother to post a twitter feed from her is beyond my ability to comprehend.

  • Patrick Chester

    Why do progressives presume the people they hate blindly follow authority figures as much as they do?

  • MohammedTheTeddyBear

    Y’all need to update your picture of this Silverman wh*re, she’s ballooned out like a Zeppelin. All that stupidity and disgustingness in her is exploding…….

  • Ken Alan Draper

    Sarah Silverman is an untalented, unfunny idiot. the Pope has had nothing to say about Americans rights, & his opinon holds no truck with most Americans as the Majority of American’s are protestant.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      His comments had nothing to do with the right of the individual to keep and bare arms. He was calling out the Syrian Branch of the Nazi Party for gassing their people.

  • Falling Up

    The Pope is not an American. He’s entitled to his opinion on any political topic, but his is of no interest to me. The jewish Sarah Silverman’s opinion on the non-American Pope’s opinion is of less than no interest.

    Miss Silverman has made a nice living with her “cutting edge” humor and her reputation for being “out there”. As long as she confines herself to the very narrow field of acceptable subjects for her satire, the liberal elites will allow her to continue earning a living by being as “outrageous” as she likes. This is me rolling my eyes.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      The Pope said nothing about guns. He was calling for peace in Syria and for the end of the use of Chemical Weapons against civilians.

      • Falling Up

        Eric, I have no beef with the Pope; I just have no interest in what he has to say on a wide range of topics from economics to NASCAR. I doubt the Pontiff’s opinion has any greater effect on the Syrian regime’s actions than my own does. Or Obama’s, even.

  • Le Cajun du foux

    Actually the story is about Sarah Silverman purposely misrepresenting the Popes comment. Don’t forget she is trying twist the facts to push and agenda here. Typical of an entertainer type turn political pundit, running off at the mouth half cocked. Don’t know the lady on a personal basis but her public spewing of twisted lies seems to indicate she has got the brains that God gave a flea.

  • Baldy1957

    Sure, let’s all listen to the Patron Saint Francis, Protector of Perverts! The Vatican spends the money sent in by little old ladies who can ill afford it, to fill their treasuries with gold or send cash payouts on behalf of pervert priests. Read “The Two Babylons”, Alexander Hislop, or “50 years in the Church of Rome”, Charles Chiniquy for an eye opening expose of the evils of Babylon, Mother of Harlots.

    • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

      *head desk, head desk, head desk*
      1. The Church, at its worst, was as bad as the general population. While, yes, there was a problem with regards to hiding pedophilia in the Church in the West, it happened in every institution across Europe, North America, and the Commonwealth. Protestant Churches, Synagogues, School Districts, Youth Athletics all saw the epidemic hit and then fade away. And all of them turned to the same self-appointed experts for advice. And the advice was the same, move the pedophiles out of the situation, pay off the victims, and the problem will not occur again. Acting out of fear and a desire to avoid scandal, leaders of every institution affected followed their advice. It is a shame and a blemish upon the Church, but to claim it was unique to the Church is to display either a lack of understanding about what REALLY happened, or to allow one’s bigotry to get the best of oneself.

      2. Read what Pope Francis ACTUALLY said, he called for peace in Syria and for the Syrian Branch of the Nazi Party to stop using chemical weapons against civilians.

      • Baldy1957

        Thank you, oh Learned One. I bow in reverence to your enlightening clarification to what his vicar of christ-edness said, and admit my bigotry against the one holy catholic church, without whom one will not inherit the Kingdom of God, because to believe otherwise is presumptuous, in contrast to what the Word of God actually teaches.

        • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

          Well, you were right on one aspect, your bigotry is apparent. As is your unwillingness to actually learn what the Church believes.

          • Baldy1957

            Actually, Eric, I know what the church teaches, as I was raised there and saw my poor grandmother take from her underwear drawer her “tithes and offerings” on a weekly basis to enrich the “holy mother church”. And perhaps the church does teach something different today, despite what they taught in times past. Is it now no longer presumptuous to say that Christ (absent Mary) is where our salvation lie? Or that the “holy father” is infallible? Or purgatory is where folks go prior to heaven? Or that the prayers of the priests is what gets folks into heaven? Where did the money come from to raise St. Peter’s Basilica, Eric? Yes, Eric, I know what the church teaches (or taught, as the case may be). Ever evolving in convenience, as is another cult of ignorance, mormonism. I pray for my family and friends still caught in the web of deceit and lies of both, as I will for those unknown to me, as well. I do seek forgiveness for my bitterness, however, as it’s hard to forget so many family and friends who went to their graves believing lies which cost them their souls.

    Listen here Slutty Slutterman, I am all for gun control so that is why I use 2 HANDS to CONTROL my GLOCK!!!!

    Piss off and GO AWAY!!

  • NickGranite

    Sorry, I don’t determine the security required for my family based on a raunchy skank comedian’s tweets. Merry Christmas.

    • Richard Jefferies

      I think you could have just stopped at raunchy skank, giving her status as a comedian is too generous.

  • bill_a_bob

    Did she tweet this going to or from her abortionist?

    Would luv to have Sara give my 1911 a Lewinsky for Christmas!

  • mcian

    Sarah who?

  • RedSoloCup

    Sarah will do anything to stay relevant it appears…

  • Code Redbeans

    About those heavily armed Swiss guards……

  • Zatoichi808

    Shut up you stupid gunt.

  • epobirs

    I’m reminded of the old Onion article in which Marilyn Manson was reduced to going door to door, desperately trying to find somebody to take offense at him.

  • Joe

    Because dear Sarah cannot discern the (major) difference between having and using, especially irresponsibly. English is hard, even if it’s supposed to be your native tongue, Sarah…

  • Richard Jefferies

    First the pope said arms, not specifically firearms. I know lib-tards like Sarah think history began the day that someone let her escape their uterus, but people were killing each other in wars for millennia before guns.

  • SR5150

    An ideologue taking something out of context?!? I’m shocked!

  • porgiefirefighter

    Methnks Sarah has a thing for gun boners.

    She’s just too stupid to stop.

  • teamfrazzled

    The left has a game plan for systematically undermining and destroying rights and it is as predictable as sunrise -besides which every leftist author who committed their agenda to paper discussed the need to do this. Those rights targeted first (but certainly won’t be the last) for destruction they insist are not only of no real value, their very existence is “offensive” because these rights makes us less “content” as a society -as they define “content” of course- make life intolerable and best of all -they hurt the FEELINGS of others who object to even knowing you exercise these rights at all – and hey, don’t we all know by now that FEELINGS matter most. (The 1st Amendment must be systematically dismantled because it is impossible to control the flow of information while it exists and the religious freedom part of it is an obvious choice -the rest of it will be even less troublesome to take down.) Because really the greatest “right” of all is not to ever be offended or have your feelings hurt by whatever you choose to be offended by. Of course they never want to discuss the FACT that what offends you and hurts your feelings is always by your own CHOICE. Instead the left pretends that if they choose to feel offended by something, the burden immediately shifts to those “causing” their offended feelings. Today it is those who bitterly cling to their religion and guns even though the left has already said we must stop valuing those rights. And naturally that means the rights that allow you to keep offending them anyway are BAAAAD! Any who insist they value these targeted rights are instantly labelled “extremists”. Oh, you value your right not to incriminate yourself and peaceably assemble -what a fine American! (for now) But you also value your religious freedom and right to bear arms? How dare you defy them! That means you are an EXTREMIST, a lowlife, a bitter clinger bigot. Never mind the Bill of Rights was written for the specific purpose of taking ALL our rights off the table as political issues for all time and for all generations. The left says otherwise. Never mind the Bill of Rights was written as a specific warning for government to keep its hands off these rights for all time. The left says government MUST figure out a way of stripping us of them anyway-even if it requires lies and deceit to do so. How DARE you continue to value certain rights the left has deemed “unacceptable”. That means the brain dead parrots and the left’s useful idiots like Sarah Silverman are totally justified in using any insult against these horrible “extremists”.

    The proper push back must be nonstop and loud and clear to these people -their personal judgment about the value of any or all of our rights to anyone else means exactly……….jack. These rights are OFF LIMITS, it is not acceptable to turn them into political issues today, tomorrow -or ever. Every generation has the right to expect them to remain intact, every generation will require them in order to give their consent to be governed -not ruled over.

    Pope should have added in the name of tyranny to that sentence. Then it would have been a legitimate statement.

  • John Murphy

    yes but the use of arms by who? Gun-toting law abiding gun owners, or hateful idiots that got their guns illegally? I am for the control of law breakers. Of all these school shootings, I haven’t heard that any of the perpetrators had been taught hunters, or gun safety.

  • John Murphy

    also the Pope has armed security, and the catholic church has its own army

  • catholic_citizen

    Perhaps Catholics need to arm up and protect the unarmed and the innocent.

  • TonyMitch

    Last time I checked, there was plenty of devastation and pain caused by the sread of Christianity with and without guns.

  • TonyMitch

    I think Sarah is just ypset guys are getting boners over their guns and not her.
