Yesterday, the pope and Obama teamed up for what was clearly a publicity stunt designed to make Americans want to let more illegals in. Today, Pope Francis took things even further when he lectured Americans on issues like immigration, abortion, gay marriage, and the refugee crisis.
The pope used his speech before congress to push as many of Obama’s agendas as he could.
“When the stranger in our midst appeals to us, we must not repeat the sins and the errors of the past,” the Christian leader said, according to Daily Mail. “We must resolve now to live as nobly and as justly as possible, as we educate new generations not to turn their back on our “neighbors” and everything around us.”
The pope went on to urge us to take in as many immigrants and refugees as we can.
“In a word, if we want security, let us give security; if we want life, let us give life; if we want opportunities, let us provide opportunities,” he said. “The yardstick we use for others will be the yardstick which time will use for us.”
“Thousands of persons are led to travel north in search of a better life for themselves and for their loved ones in search of greater opportunities’ in in North America, he said. ‘Is this not what we want for our own children?'” the pope added. “We must not be taken aback by their numbers, but rather view them as persons, seeing their faces and listening to their stories, trying to respond as best we can to their situation. To respond in a way which is always humane, just and fraternal.”
Frankly, the pope has no business lecturing us about politics. He should be a simple of love and Christianity, not a political figure. Shame on Pope Francis for ditching his Christian face to submit to Obama!
