Today's Show: POPE FRANCIS & THE RWANDA GENOCIDE
Chris discusses the recent "apology" given by Pope Francis to Rwandan President Paul Kagame on behalf of the role played by the Roman Catholic Church in the Rwanda Genocide of 1994. The European Institute of Protestant Studies reported on how the media "strangely omitted the role of the institution largely responsible for the genocide" during the 10 year anniversary of the event in 2004. Late last year, the Catholic Bishops gave an apology, one that has now been reinforced by the pope himself -- though critics argue that Francis did not truly apologize. The Guardian reports that even after the genocide "a Catholic network helped priests and nuns" who took part in the murders escape to Europe in order to help them "evade justice."
