WATCH: Pope Francis says, COVID-19 is the earth ‘having a fit so that we will take care of nature’

Pope Francis has said the coronavirus is nature’s response to humans damaging the environment. Speaking with a Spanish journalist on Sunday, Pope Francis said: “There’s a saying you know, God always forgives. We forgive sometimes. [But] nature never forgives. “Fires, earthquakes, that is nature having a fit. So that we will take care of nature.”…


Pope Francis has said the coronavirus is nature’s response to humans damaging the environment.

Speaking with a Spanish journalist on Sunday, Pope Francis said: “There’s a saying you know, God always forgives. We forgive sometimes. [But] nature never forgives.

“Fires, earthquakes, that is nature having a fit. So that we will take care of nature.”

On the same day that the pope made his remarks, Oprah Winfrey shared an interview with actor Idris Elba essentially suggesting the same thing.

In the short video posted to Twitter, Elba likened humanity to an “infection” the world is trying to “get rid of.”

“Our world has been taking a kicking,” he said. “You know, we’ve damaged our world and, you know, it’s no surprise that our world is reacting… It’s no surprise that a virus has been created that is going to slow us down and ultimately make us think differently about our world and ourselves.”

Elba went on to say: “For me, that’s a standout thing that’s very obvious. That this is almost like the world’s cry-out to, like, ‘hey, hey, hey, you’re kicking me. You know, and what you’re doing is not good. So, I’ll get rid of you, as any organism would do, is try and get rid of an infection and maybe this is it for the world.”

They say you should never let a crisis go to waste, and it would seem Coronavirus is sadly no exception to that rule.
