Papa Francois versus the Evil emitting from Obama, Cameron, Hollande and Harper

Don't know whether to love or hate the new Pope.  Grrrrrrrrrr!   Dilemmas, dilemmas!!!!!! 

Part of Pope Francis's statement pleading for Peace:
....“When man thinks only of himself,  of his own interests and places himself in the center, when he permits himself to be captivated by the idols of dominion and power, when he puts himself in God’s place, then all relationships are broken and everything is ruined; then the door opens to violence, indifference, and conflict.… It is exactly in this chaos that God asks man’s conscience: ʿWhere is Abel your brother? ʾ and Cain responds: ʿI do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?ʾ (Gen 4:9). We too are asked this question, it would be good for us to ask ourselves as well: Am I really my brother’s keeper? Yes, you are your brother’s keeper! To be human means to care for one another! But when harmony is broken, a metamorphosis occurs: the brother who is to be cared for and loved becomes an adversary to fight, to kill. What violence occurs at that moment, how many conflicts, how many wars have marked our history! …

Is it possible to walk the path of peace? Can we get out of this spiral of sorrow and death? Can we learn once again to walk and live in the ways of peace? Invoking the help of God, under the maternal gaze of the Salus Populi Romani, Queen of Peace, I say: Yes, it is possible for everyone! From every corner of the world tonight, I would like to hear us cry out: Yes, it is possible for everyone! Or even better, I would like for each one of us, from the least to the greatest, including those called to govern nations, to respond: Yes, we want it!”.........
