Divert weapons funding to research to prevent next pandemic, says pope

Pope Francis has urged global leaders to divert funds spent on weapons to research to prevent another pandemic. In what was the largest gathering in the Vatican in nearly three months, Francis presided at an outdoor prayer service with about 130 people. Francis said leaders should take a far-sighted attitude, aiding the most needy now and putting in place long-term economic and social solutions.

As a Catholic this pope drives me absolutely nuts. In my lifetime I don't EVER remember a pope making so many controversial statementstatements and diving into political controversies. Prayer man, just spiritual leadership.
