Jordan Peterson gets emotional over Olivia Wilde's branding him an 'insane man'
We wish, even if it was just for a day, that we could live our lives with the self-confidence of Jordan Peterson.
The controversial Canadian psychologist is so convinced of his own opinion that he just tried to explain how Christianity works to the actual Pope.
It comes after the official Pope Francis Twitter profile tweeted: “#SocialJustice demands that we fight against the causes of poverty: inequality and the lack of labour, land, and lodging; against those who deny social and labour rights; and against the culture that leads to taking away the dignity of others.”
Peterson disagreed with the statement and wrote: “There is nothing Christian about #SocialJustice. Redemptive salvation is a matter of the individual soul.”
As far as Twitter spats go, explaining religion to the Pope is a new one on us.

One twitter honed in on just how preposterous the exchange was, writing: “I don't know what's funnier, you trying to lecture the Pope on what Christianity is, or that you're loudly proclaiming that acting like Jesus is wrong.”

It’s just the latest episode in the life of Peterson, who is often outspoken about his denial of climate change and the government implementing policies.
