Pope Francis criticized cancel culture, which he claims “invades many areas and public institutions” and forces people to “deny” or “rewrite history.”

Francis spoke about cancel culture for the first time, when he spoke of how many agendas “are increasingly dictated by a way of thinking that denies the natural foundations of humanity and the cultural roots that constitute the identity of many peoples.”

He claimed that cancel culture is the elaboration “of a single thought forced to deny history, or even worse, to rewrite it on the basis of contemporary categories, given that any historical situation must be interpreted according to the hermeneutics of the time.”

For this reason, he urged multilateral diplomacy to be “truly inclusive, not canceling but cherishing the differences and sensibilities that have historically marked various peoples.”
