Pope Vatican Francis I condemned the insatiable "gossip and gossip" and fabricated stories on social media.
The Grand Pontiff, 83, said today, Friday, on the occasion of the International Day of Social Communication: “By gathering unverified information, repeating debates that lack authenticity and misleadingly disguised, and sending cruel and hateful messages, we do not help by this in weaving the history of humanity, but we strip others of their dignity.” .
He added: We need the courage to reject wrong and evil stories.
The head of the Catholic Church said that today's communication platforms do not produce stories to enhance social ties. He added, “(But we) find devastating and provocative stories that tear and break the fragile threads that bring us together as a society.”
