Pope’s war on gossip continues as he compares it to terrorism

Posted on September 7, 2015 at 9:46 AM
Pope Francis is determined to stop gossiping
 
The pope has once again warned the faithful about the dangers of gossiping, likening those who gossip to a “terrorist who throws bombs and then runs away”. 
 
 
He said: “Gossiping is like terrorism because the person who gossips is like a terrorist who throws a bomb and runs away, destroying: with their tongue they are destroying and not making peace. But this person is cunning, right? He is not a suicide bomber,no, no, he takes good care of himself.”
 
 
He then encouraged people to bite their tongues rather than gossip, saying: ““Every day that I get the urge to say something that sows discord and division, to say bad things about another person….Bite your tongue! I can assure you. If you do this and bite your tongue instead of sowing discord, the first few times the wound will cause your tongue to swell -- because the devil helps us do this because that’s his work, his job: to divide.”
 
 
We have been warned, again!!
