Reuters has a story yesterday about the Pope, although not naming Donald Trump by name, speaking critically of any world leader who builds walls to keep out migrants.
However, it isn’t the first time the socialist Pope voiced his opposition to walls and spoke instead in favor of social justice to solve the ills of the world.
But, what is so galling with his view is the fact that the Vatican has a wall! The Vatican wall was built to repel Muslim pirates (invaders!) centuries ago!
Never forget that one of the things the pirates were after in Europe were white slaves!
Before I get to the Pope’s latest silly remarks, take a trip down memory lane and remember when he opened his mouth on this same issue during the 2016 Presidential election, here is one story at WND.
Earlier this year, in an effort to set the record straight, the leftwing media was eager to tell us that the Vatican wall doesn’t really keep anyone out anymore. After all, it has gates with metal detectors, that is all!
Today, the Vatican’s walls are an impressive sight. But they don’t keep anybody out; their doors are open and metal detectors are the only obstacle between the public and St. Peter’s Square, according to CNN.
I haven’t been there, but I will bet the Vatican doesn’t let the ‘visitors’ who have passed through the doors stay overnight! And, surely they can’t move in!
Now here is the newest salvo from the Pope against wall builders like our President,
Pope criticizes building walls to keep migrants out
ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE (Reuters) – Pope Francis said on Sunday that political leaders who want walls and other barriers to keep migrants out “will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build”.
The pope made his comments to reporters aboard the plane returning from Morocco in response to a question about migration in general and about U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat to shut down the southern border with Mexico.
“Builders of walls, be they made of razor wire or bricks, will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build,” he said. [Okay, so we will take being safe prisoners in America! What a dumb statement!—ed]
Francis, who did not mention Trump in his response, has sparred with the U.S. president before over migration, which was a theme of several questions on the plane as well as during the trip to Morocco.
Trump has declared a national emergency to justify redirecting money earmarked for the military to pay for his promised U.S.-Mexico border wall.
“I realize that with this problem (of migration), a government has a hot potato in its hands, but it must be resolved differently, humanely, not with razor wire,” the Argentine-born pope said on the plane. [What is his proposal then—send more of our money to poor countries so that their leaders can live high on the hog?—ed]
Addressing Moroccan leaders on Saturday, Francis said that problems of migration would never be resolved by physical barriers but instead required social justice and correcting the world’s economic imbalances.
Apparently that is his plan—the redistribution of your money!
He said wealthy countries should help eliminate the root causes of migration such as poverty, war and political instability.
Migrants should be accepted, protected and integrated and if a country cannot handle the numbers, the migrants should be distributed among other countries, he said.
What do you do?
If you are a conservative Catholic who believes in borders and US sovereignty, please speak up in your churches about this Pope. If you can’t speak up, you should quit!
And, although you might think you are well informed about centuries of Muslim invasions and the ‘religion’ behind them, studying history isn’t a bad idea. I plan to read Raymond Ibrahim’s Sword and Scimitar.
See one review here, not all Catholics are on the same page as this Pope!
