“You cannot insult people’s faith,” says Pope Francis in response to the horror in Paris. (NPR article)

You are mistaken, Your Holiness. We can.

And while you clearly disapprove of what you call an “aberration” — i.e., the killing of those who do insult people’s faith — what happened is in reality a crime called “murder.”

Mass murder in Paris.

But you know this. Back in the day, murder was a mortal sin.

Call it what it is.
