Pope Francis Calls Donald Trump Anti-Christian because of His Position on Illegal Immigration
THE POPE SAID WHAT, HEY FRANCIS … STICK TO RELIGION AND MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS?
It would appear that now Donald Trump and the Pope are now in a war of words, but this time it was not of Trump’s doing. Pope Francis said Thursday that Donald Trump was “not Christian” if he wants to address illegal immigration by building a wall. Really Your Holiness, you mean the Vatican does not have walls around it that keep people out? Really? Whats the difference? Why don’t we just let all the illegals go to the Vatican? A note to the Pope, you might want to stay out of the sovereign affairs of other countries.
Remember when the Pope said, “who am I to judge?” You do remember that, right Pope Francis? Maybe you might want to follow your own words for all and not just some.
Thrusting himself into the heated American presidential campaign, Pope Francis declared Thursday that Donald Trump is “not Christian” if he wants to address illegal immigration only by building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Trump fired back ferociously, saying it was “disgraceful” for a religious leader to question a person’s faith.
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” he said. While Francis said he would “give the benefit of the doubt” because he had not heard Trump’s border plans independently, he added, “I say only that this man is not a Christian if he has said things like that.”
Donald Trump fired back at Pope Francis questioning why a religious leader would question an individuals faith. I have been highly critical of Donald Trump and his all too often disrespectful name calling and his lack of focusing on the bigger picture than getting to often bogged down in the weeds, but I am with Trump on this one. What the hell was the Pontiff thinking? This is a Pope that has embraced socialist and leaders like the Castro brothers but has the nerve to call Trump anti-Christian. WTH!!! In the end, the Pope probably just gave Trump more votes heading into this weekends South Carolina primary and Nevada caucus. How often is it that you get into a dust up with the Pope and win? Trump probably just did.
“For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful,” he said at a campaign stop in South Carolina, which holds a key primary on Saturday. “I am proud to be a Christian, and as president I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened.”
Trump also raised the prospect of the Islamic State extremist group attacking the Vatican, saying that if that happened, “the pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president because this would not have happened.”
Trump eased off later Thursday, saying he thought the pope’s comments were “probably a little bit nicer” than first reported.
The American Thinker makes some very important points and advice for the Pope in evaluating the comments made and how and why he would make such foolish ones. I have to say, I second the American Thinker on every point.
First, El Papa should stay away from presidential elections, here, there, and everywhere.
Second, the Vatican is one gigantic place surrounded by walls.
Third, is a border now un-Christian? How did we get to the point that defending borders and promoting legal immigration is now inhumane?
Fourth, El Papa has given Mr. Trump a huge gift. I am not a Trump supporter, but I believe that the U.S. has every right to protect and defend its borders. I don’t know whether building a wall from Laredo to San Diego is the best answer. However, it may work in some isolated regions currently used by cartels to bring drugs and people.
Last, but not least, El Papa just visited Cuba. He hugged and embraced Raúl Castro, a man who has executed priests, harassed religious leaders, and closed Christian schools years ago. Did he call the Castro brothers un-Christian?
Pope Francis is a good man, but he needs a few people around him to protect him from himself.

This pope is a socialist. The Catholic church is looking for more membership.
For forty years, the Catholic church has been hiding, sponsoring and caring for illegal hispanics that cross the Southern border of the United states.
I have witnessed this personally.
If the United States wants to bring this activity to as halt, it will require investigating all the Catholic churches and shutting down those that are harboring illegals.
Perhaps it’s time for the Pope to switch to grape juice in his chalice instead of wine! The thought process seems to becoming negative towards being a Christian. Who would want to think the Pope’s possessed.
Maybe Pope Francis needs to stay home and attend to his position there. What was he doing in Mexico anyway? What did he instill into the minds of those illegally wanting to cross our borders; we should build bridges for easy access. He knows it would promote crime, corruption and death to our country and then refer to us as un-Christian for protecting ourselves.
If he wants to build bridges go ahead build as many as he likes just make sure they all lead to the Vatican and don’t forget to take down your walls, they would get in the way of your bridges.
With all due respect to the Pope, he’s become a pooped out Pope. God help him.
If the Pope had his way we’d all be a third world country living with poverty, crime and disease but that would be O.K with him because he would say we were all Christians. He needs to mind his own business.
He has offended many people. We are Christians and we will build our wall. He wants borderless countries especially the U.S. Allow the illegals, take all the refugees, however for him, not in his backyard. He maybe needs to be reminded, he is the Pope but he is not God.
This pope is the first that is not European. He has the socialist background that makes him different than all other popes.
The Catholic Church has been protecting and encouraging illegal immigration to the United States since 1965 and before. They believe that the whole world is one country. Therefore borders mean nothing and anyone who challenges that belief is labeled unchristian.
Why not tell these people to stand up and fight for their homeland, not invade other countries illegally. the bible says if a man will not work, neither shall he eat. I say, if you didn’t pay into our system, it shouldn’t be paying you.
And yes, he is the Pope, not God.
The Vatican has walls around it and the City of Jerusalem did also??? I’m catholic and the Pope needs to stay out of this!
