In a tweet sent out September 23, actor James Woods made an observation about Pope Francis: "Intriguing that the Catholic Church makes no distinction between abortion and murder, yet His Holiness is accepting pro-abortion hospitality," Woods wrote.

Woods then followed with a second tweet: "For the record I am a practicing Roman Catholic. I share that to clarify my personal interest in my previous tweet."












There has been no further elaboration from Woods on what or whom he meant by "pro-abortion hospitality." The actor, 68, has appeared in many popular films, including "Casino," "Ghosts of Mississippi," and "White House Down." He is also the plantiff in a current $10 million defamation lawsuit against a Twitter user who suggested that Woods is "a cocaine addict."

Since joining Twitter in 2009,  Woods has often used the format to express political opinions. On September 23 he tweeted a pro-Second Amendment quote from George Washington:





















"A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."

On September 21 Woods tweeted a picture of a group of people pushing a broken-down Hillary Clinton campaign bus up a hill. "You couldn't stage a better visual metaphor if you tried," Woods wrote.
