Pope Francis caused a stir on the Internet on Thursday after he appeared to support the use of the middle finger in a tweetah post. The post that has since been removed is highlighted the middle finger and said it was a symbol of honesty.

“The middle finger that is higher than the others reminds us of something essential: honesty. Being honest means avoiding the traps of corruption,” Pope Francis said in an official report wrote in the now-deleted post shared by New York Magazine.

His statement followed a series of posts in which Pope Francis describes the characteristics of each finger. He first wrote a comment on Twitter and said: “God has placed the gift of life in your hands. From your hands tomorrow is born. From your hands can come peace that this country so lacks. I would like to suggest some ‘ingredients for the future’: five of them, each corresponding to a finger on your hand.”

He began the series with the thumb, which “symbolizes prayer,” followed by the index finger, which symbolizes “communion.” before the middle finger is reached.

The post was about removed 50 minutes later and replaced with a subtle change; the “middle finger” was replaced by “the third finger”. However, the descriptive posts have since been removed screenshots the tweet have continued to go viral with former Congressman Joe Walsh tweet, “Pope Francis shouldn’t have erased it. I thought it was a great tweet.”

Pope Francis was taken into account one of the most accomplished popes compared to his predecessors, departing from the historical views of the Catholic Church on some subjects. in one last job interview with the Associated Press, he becauseceded the view under some within the Catholic Church they think people within the The LGBTQ+ community is criminal and says homosexuality is not a crime. And said all children of God must be treated with dignity. However, Francis did not go that far say Homosexuality is not a sin but said there must be a distinction between a crime and a sin when it comes to homosexuality.
