A visibly annoyed Pope Francis had to pull himself away from a woman in a crowd in St Peter's Square on New Year's Ever after she grabbed his hand and yanked him towards her. Pope Francis was walking through the square and greeting pilgrims. After reaching out to greet a child, the pope turned away from the crowd only for a nearby woman to seize his hand and pull her towards him. The abrupt gesture appeared to cause him pain and Francis slapped swiftly slapped at her hand before pulling his hand free

If a man grabbed a woman's hand like that and she slapped him she would have became the face of pseudo feminism.

Pope St. John Paul II never lost his temper like that... He got nearly knocked down many times by the crowd and he always remained calm and collected. Well, no wonder he's a saint...

Women need to be held accountable, what she did what not okay at all. At the same time, knowing how the Pope is, he was just caught off guard and clearly did not mean to react that way.

He owes no apology! The woman grabbed his hand, tugged him hard towards her, and wouldn't let go. He needed to drop kick her.

Lmao why is he the pope if he can't confront things like this? I agree that what the women did was bad but after all the pope shouldn't have reacted like this and i know that people will say "he is just and old man" well yeah but he a public figure and public figures have to deal with this maturely (and most bc of his age)

He should be arrested for assault. You can't just hit someone because they want to hold your hand. Did anyone else see the hateful look on his face?! He hates asian people!

If the Pope can get angry and then later claim to be only human, then people who struggle with lust should be able to do the same thing. Why do people sin sexually? Because they are only human.

@Jazz Feline Lust and the "fight or flight" instinct Pope Francis exhibited here are both intrinsic to the human species. What this proves is that no matter how morally righteous a person tries to be, they are still human, and will still need God's mercy.

That's not an accurate comparison. Nobody is nearly getting their arm dislocated because of lustful temptation. He was in danger of being hurt, and reacted appropriately. You can see him calmly walking away, he only reacts to the woman when she refuses to let go.
She got the HOLY SLAPP!

I understand Pope Francis reaction but I pity and somehow condone with the woman as well. It might be that she has a serious problem and desperately wants the Popes blessing. Its admirable that Pope Francis really did apologize.
NoalMCPE - Prije 3 dana
For me, i think the woman needs something to tell about the pope that's why she pull pope francis arm,sometimes we should not critiisize people because we don't know the truth and for real for me what pope did It insults me bc he is a pope he should respect the woman and listen to her if it's really important,this is my opinion OKAY
