You’ll be thrilled to learn that he Vatican is totally in favor of free speech.
There are, however, two notable exceptions: faith, and the Pope’s mom.
Calling freedom of expression a “fundamental” human right, the pope outlined why he believes there are limits to that right. If someone “says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch,” he joked, according to an Associated Press translation. “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.”
That’s cute. We can, we have, and we will.
