Pope Francis nas taken the liberty to weigh in on the election and call Trump a non-Christian in one swoop.
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the Gospel,”– Pope Francis.
He seemed to do it as Obama is also attacking Trump as being “unelecatable”.
Trump replied from Carolina that:
“They [Mexican government] are using the Pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so, especially when so many lives are involved and when illegal immigration is so rampant.”
I know, some people frown on public criticism or commentary on the Pope regarding politics. But that is not me. In fact, these comments just beg a response to them. And I’m just one to accommodate it. Now it appears fashionable for this “Vicar” to do public cut and run comments from his Papal paradise, yet people are to supposed to remain silent.
This is not a matter of political correctness either. However, it is considered politically incorrect to criticize the Pope or Francis. Sorry for the disclaimer. I don’t hear him warning ‘let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” No, he endorses the public stoning of non-compliant individuals, metaphorically.
Rather this Pope went on the campaign trail when he came here, aligning his position and public ad campaign with Tom Steyer and the far Left joining their big-government, Global Warming agenda.(Steyer sponsored his ad campaign message) Some may regard that as courageous or welcome his critique in our policy and political process. But I for one do not, especially as it is a one-sided, double standard approach.
Where are the Papal excommunications of Leftist politicians who support abortion, even up to and including the infanticide of partial birth abortion? Where is that public flogging or that multi-million dollar ad campaign? Don’t point me to general comments selectively littered in some of his speeches between his pros on Climate Change.
Show me where he singles out someone on the Left and calls them a non-Christian — or excommunicates someone. He might just start that one with the Oval Office Occupant and his anti-Life voting record. There are times when hypocrisy just stands up and screams.
I am grieved today because of what Francis said on Donald Trump. Not because of my predisposition toward either side of it. If it were someone other than this Pope, then he might possibly regret those statements. But that won’t happen. As with the uber-Left, unfortunately, shame is not a factor in their sentiments.
Remember, in August 2015, Pope Francis was said to have excommunicated Donald Trump, citing it “behavior recognized as un-Christian to the community of the faithful,” barring him from partaking in sacraments of the Church. ***(Update: Apparently it was a satirical site post here though in effect this is much the same thing)
So Pope Francis and the Vatican endorses the illegal invasion of our southern border.
Let the mass excommunications begin. Has a sort of an Inquisition tone to it.
But deporting illegal invaders is compassionateless.
Note: (my apologies for the mention of the satire excommunication) Later, the Presbyterian Church was calling on people to denounce Trump’s statements saying his church should look into his standing.
