Pope Francis Delivers ‘Gossiping Is Like Terrorism’ Speech In Vatican City

The pope was critical of those who gossip and those who accept it as harmless. “Gossiping is like terrorism because the person who gossips is like a terrorist who throws a bomb and runs away, destroying,” he said, according to USA Today. “With their tongue they are destroying and not making peace.”

The “cunning” gossiper, Francis reportedly said, isn’t a suicide bomber because he takes good care of himself. He urged spreading peace with speech, instead of division.

The pope has taken aim at gossip before, most notably addressing the issue last year during his Christmas address to the Curia. He condemned “the terrorism of gossip” that is able to “kill the reputations of our colleagues and brothers in cold blood,” the Associated Press reported. Cardinals in attendance reportedly received the critique coolly, the comments drawing just minor applause.

If there were open communication between institutions and individuals, and if everyone made their intentions clear, there wouldn't need to be gossip. Unfortunately, the world isn't like that, and we need gossip in order to survive. I had a coworker who refused to listen to gossip...and things didn't work out for her. (Annie Fannie had it in for her, and had the managers' ear.)

This is partly true. It isn't all one way or the other. I have written before how the evolution of civilisation was partly made possible by the females', and friends', ability to gossip, and so to contest the dominant males. I was thinking of posting a follow-up to this post.

While the Pope is correct, there is also a naivete, found in Puritanist Progressivism, which ultimately tends to control the bahaviours of others through morality, and sometimes force, under the banner of good intentions.

Nevertheless, so much gossip is just dissipation, defending the retarded status quo, and injuring the less powerful. It depends, as always, who is the political group who is doing the gossipping.
