Disinfo: Pope Francis is becoming a new ideological tool for influencing the masses

Summary

In September after the bombing of the humanitarian convoy in Aleppo, Pope Francis held a speech where he warned that Russia will ‘face God’s judgement for bombing Aleppo’. The Pope is becoming a new ideological tool for influencing the masses.

Disproof

Pope Francis did say that the responsible bombers will face God's judgement, but he did not name any perpetrators responsible for the attack. ind.pn/2drFRyQ,
