Catholics… what in the world is Pope Francis doing?? He infers that Donald Trump is not a Christian for making statements about what he would do to protect the sovereign borders of the United States?
Yet Pope Francis visits the United States, meets with government leaders who are actively taking steps to restrict religious freedom and force believers to pay for abortions and contraception, and the pope makes nice with them? No personal attacks then. Some of these government leaders are Roman Catholics and some rather critical of the Catholic Church. No reproof for them.
Let’s see… Vatican City has agreed to take two migrants into their walled city and suggests that the United States should not protect their borders with a wall? But the borders of the United States should be porous, with no restrictions?
Does anyone else see a disconnect here?
No country in the history of mankind has done more for the citizens of the world than the generous citizens of the United States of America. None. And erecting a wall to control illegal immigration is not going to change that.
The United States has a moral obligation to enforce the justly enacted laws for the protection of its citizens. How is bringing financial and potentially physical harm to its citizens moral? In any respect?
This isn’t the first red flag. The pope’s official comments and official Vatican actions concerning global warming… OOPS!! climate change… climate change… his denigration of capitalism, and now contraception is acceptable in certain circumstances!
What happened to moral absolutes?
But I digress.
Overheard on the radio: “Used to be a rhetorical question to ask
‘Is the Pope Catholic?'”
Words mean things. Official words mean a precedent is established.
