pope francis' sad contribution to freedom of expression



aLfrEdO tRifF

en route to the philippines (addressing the charlie hebdo affair) pope francis made clear that freedom of expression has limits! 
... if Dr. [Alberto] Gasbarri here, a great friend, were to say something insulting against my mother, a punch awaits him.
so, if you feel insulted, punch back

is this supposedly blasphemous caricature enough reason to kill people? 

what needs limits is not freedom of expression but islamic fundamentalism's cult of death and violence.
