Pope Francis warns that the escalation of the conflict in Ukraine could lead to a “final catastrophe” that would “extinguish” the human race.
Speaking during his weekly address, the Pope said humanity would have to “start from scratch” in the event of a thermonuclear war.
“Our imagination appears increasingly concentrated on the representation of a final catastrophe that will extinguish us,” said Pope Francis.
“What happens with an eventual nuclear war?” he asked.
“The ‘day after’ this – if there will still be days and human beings – will have to start again from scratch. Destroying everything to start again from scratch.”
The Pope highlighted how apocalyptic “flood imagery” is “gaining ground in our subconscious,” a reference to the Biblical flood narrative found in the Book of Genesis.
Despite the Pope’s warning, a new poll finds that a staggering one third of Americans are willing to risk nuclear war to fight Putin.
Participants in a Pew survey were asked if they opposed or supported “taking military action even if it risks a nuclear conflict with Russia.”
62 per cent of Americans said they would oppose US military involvement, but a disturbingly large 35 per cent said they were happy to risk nuclear armageddon to support Ukraine.
Despite President Zelensky’s relentless calls for a no fly zone that would almost certainly precipitate World War III, the White House has so far rejected the idea.
