Tear down that wall Pope Francis!
Pope Francis is getting involved in our politics again, but it’s a lot worse this time. The Pope is saying Donald Trump is not a Christian if he wants to build a wall but he didn’t stop there. The Holy Father doesn’t like walls but the Holy See is surrounded by a wall and has very tight security.
In addition to taking umbrage over Trump’s comments about the wall, he is dismissive of Trump for saying he would deport all illegals and then let them back in legally (touchback amnesty).
This should raise Trump’s poll numbers. The Pope should keep quiet if he doesn’t want Trump’s numbers to go up.
His comments were harsh and some will say extremely inappropriate:
When asked by a reporter, “Can a good Catholic vote for this man?” Francis responded by saying, “Thank God he said I was a politician, because Aristotle defined the human person as ‘animal politicus.’ So at least I am a human person. As to whether I am a pawn — well, maybe, I don’t know. I’ll leave that up to your judgment and that of the people.”
He continued: “And then, 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. As far as what you said about whether I would advise to vote or not to vote, I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he said things like that. We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.”
So, tell me, are Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, Joe Biden Christian? They love late-term abortion.
Trump said that if and when ISIS attacks The Vatican, as ISIS plans to do, the Pope would wish Donald Trump was president.
Trump said he “will not allow Christianity to be attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now with our current president.” He added that “it’s disgraceful” for a religious leader to question another man’s faith. The Pope is a “pawn”, Trump continued and is being used by the “Mexican government.”
To be fair, Donald Trump did question Dr. Ben Carson’s faith only a few months ago.
The Pope hasn’t seen how the current open borders policies have harmed the US, Trump said.
Obama has attacked Christianity but Trump has stood up strongly for Christians and that is the truth.

This began earlier this week but the Pope hasn’t been this strong before.
When will the Pope stick up for The Little Sisters of the Poor as strongly as he involves himself in our politics?
Has the Pope questioned the Castros’ faith? Has he questioned the faith of any of the communists in this world? Why Trump? Because he wants to build a wall???
I love the Pope but fully disagree with him telling a man he’s not a Christian and involving himself in US politics. It’s wrong and it’s not his role. He’s deep in the weeds. I want my Pope to bring people to God not to socialism and communism.
Socialism and Communism are the most destructive forces in our world today and it’s warping religion. Why not go after the countries abusing their people – the totalitarian nations? Go after the Castro brothers.
