Pope Francis suggested Donald Trump is not a Christian because he wants to curb illegal immigration by building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Meanwhile, Pope Francis has not condemned the Muslim rape epidemic sweeping across Europe or the decades-long child sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church.
Pope Francis slammed Trump aboard the papal airliner on his return trip to Rome following a six-day visit to Mexico. “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” the pope told reporters.
Despite his opposition to walls, Pope Francis does not want to tear down the walls protecting Vatican City, where he lives safely behind an army of military guards.
Donald Trump has repeatedly said he does not oppose legal immigration. His wife, Melania, is an immigrant from Slovenia. However, he opposes ILLEGAL immigration, which costs America taxpayers about $113 billion a year.
Trump wants to build a wall along the Mexico-U.S. border to minimize the deluge of illegal migrants and illegal drugs pouring into the country. Trump was quick to fire back at Pope Francis. In a statement, The Donald said the pope doesn’t seem to realize that ISIS’s primary goal is to attack the Vatican.
If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS — which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy — I can promise you the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president because this would not have happened.
Pope Francis has repeatedly inserted himself into politics when his job is to be the figurehead leader of the Catholic Church. While Francis condemned Trump, he still has not commented on the Muslim rape epidemic that is sending shock waves across Europe.
The Muslim rape epidemic was spotlighted on Dec. 31, 2015, when 821 women were sexually assaulted, robbed or raped by 1,000 Muslim men in Cologne, Germany, as Examiner previously reported. Similar attacks occurred that same night in Finland, Sweden, England, Norway and Switzerland — all of which took in scores of Muslim refugees during the past few years.
Pope Francis’ silence on the Muslim rape wave is shocking given his role as the leader of the Catholic Church. Francis has also remained mum on the widespread sexual abuse of tens of thousands of innocent children by Catholic priests during the past several decades.
