Men Who Frequent Prostitutes Are Criminals – Pope Francis

Men Who Frequent Prostitutes Are Criminals – Pope Francis

Pope Francis has asked forgiveness for all Christians who buy s*x from women, saying men who frequent prostitutes are criminals with a ‘sick mentality’ who think that women exist to be

The pope made the comments during an intimate, four-hour-long listening session with 300 young people who were invited by the Vatican to Rome.

‘This isn’t making love. This is torturing a woman. Let’s not confuse the terms,’ Francis insisted.

The purpose of the session was to help church leaders learn about young people’s attitudes towards the Catholic Church.

Blessing Okoedion, who was forced into prostitution but escaped, asked Pope Francis how the church could allow Catholics to be clients for the many Nigerian women in Italy who – like her – were victims of human trafficking.

‘I ask myself, and I ask you: Is the male chauvinistic church able to truthfully ask itself about this high demand by clients?’ she asked.

Pope Francis, who has made the fight against human trafficking and modern-day s*x slaves a priority of his pontificate, urged young people to take up the fight against trafficking and forced prostitution. ‘This is one of the battles that I ask you young people to do, for the dignity of women,’ he said.

The pontiff said forced prostitution was born of a ‘sick mentality’ that no form of feminism has managed to rid from society, one that thinks that ‘women are to be exploited.’

‘I want to take advantage of this moment, because you talked about baptized and Christians, to ask your forgiveness, from society and all the Catholics who do this criminal act.’

Monday’s meeting was preparation for a big synod of bishops in October on helping young people find their vocations in life.

Francis has insisted that young adults – Catholic and not – be integral in the process informing the otherwise all-male, celibate and rather old church hierarchy about the future of the church.

‘Young people must be taken seriously,’ he said.
