    I want to retract my 28 January comment. Pope Francis has spoken boldly against the Holodomor.

    I hope he embraces the same sentiment for the Holodomor. I wonder why he never speaks about this massive evil.

    Memo to Pope Francis: don't know exactly where you are going with what seem to be a series of innuendo's so get your fact checking done to find that anti-Semitism is on the rise and has been for quite a while. To be blunt, don't even think about trying to pin that on the President.
