Pope decries ‘cancel culture’ as ‘a form of ideological colonization’ | TheHill – The Hill

Pope Francis denounced “cancel culture” on Monday during his annual “state of the world” address to diplomats. 

The Pope didn’t cite any specific instances, but rather the “agendas increasingly dictated by a mindset that rejects the natural foundations of humanity and the cultural roots that constitute the identity of many peoples.” 

“I consider this a form of ideological colonization, one that leaves no room for freedom of expression and is now taking the form of the ‘cancel culture’ invading many circles and public institutions,” said Francis, according to Reuters. “Under the guise of defending diversity, it ends up canceling all sense of identity, with the risk of silencing positions.”

Last week, Francis made headlines after making a general address at the Vatican, highlighting the importance of fostering and adopting children, while suggesting that having pets instead of children is “a form of selfishness.” 

“Today we see a form of selfishness with our orphan [society],” said the Pope. “Sometimes they have one and that’s it, but they have dogs and cats that take the place of children. This may make people laugh but it is a reality.” 

“Giving up on being a mother and father can take some of your humanity away from us … society becomes older and without humanity because we lose the richness of motherhood and fatherhood,” he added.
