The pope says that homophobic persecution is like Nazism


Pope Francis has condemned the persecution of gay people, reminding that this is a part of what Nazis did, so homophobes act the same as Nazis. “With the persecution of Jews, gypsies, and people with homosexual tendencies, today these actions are typical [and] represent ‘par excellence’ a culture of waste and hate. That is what was done in those days and today it is happening again,” the pontiff says, adding that in the speeches of many far-right activists there are similarities with Hitler’s manifests from the 30s. It is estimated that the Nazis and their collaborators murdered around six million Jewish people, and between 5,000 and 15,000 LGBT+ people, many of whom died in the Nazi scientific experiments aimed to change their sexuality. Doesn’t it remind you anything?
