Turns out the Pope —not a fan of cancel culture.
According to a report from the New York Post, 85-year old Pope Francis denounced the practice during his annual “state of the world” address to diplomats.
Without giving specific examples, he attacked “agendas increasingly dictated by a mindset that rejects the natural foundations of humanity and the cultural roots that constitute the identity of many peoples.”
“I consider this a form of ideological colonization, one that leaves no room for freedom of expression and is now taking the form of the ‘cancel culture’ invading many circles and public institutions,” he said.
“Under the guise of defending diversity, it ends up canceling all sense of identity, with the risk of silencing positions,” he warned.
Francis warned that “a kind of dangerous one-track thinking is taking shape, one constrained to deny history or, worse yet, to rewrite it.”
