During a wide-ranging discussion at the World Congress of the International Association of Penal Law, Pope Francis decried what he saw as a resurgence of Nazism in the modern era.
“It is no coincidence that in these times, emblems and actions typical of Nazism reappear, which, with its persecutions against Jews, gypsies and people of homosexual orientation, represents the negative model par excellence of a culture of waste and hatred,” he said at the internationl conference on criminal law.
“And I must confess to you that when I hear a speech [by] someone responsible for order or for a government, I think of speeches by Hitler in 1934, 1936,” he added, in comments that departed from his prepared address.
