When a global personality like Pope Francis will speak his mind and express his human side of himself in order to connect with his audience; international media picked the message and transformed it with their own presentation of the concept.
Last Thursday, while on board of his plane to his State and Apostolic Journey in the Philippines; he answered questions from the media men/women who were traveling with him. His comments were sent around the world and got published in many different ways, however the message remains the same except for a few.

Writing in Italy’s Corriere della Serra, commentator Luigi Accattoli says the Pope has delivered “one of his truisms intended to have maximum impact”, that is “if you insult the faith of others… you can expect a punch”. He adds that the Pope’s comments about freedom of speech echo those made by his predecessor, Pope Benedict, in 2006 following the publication of the Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad.
