Pope Francis suggests nations that obstruct illegal immigration should seek forgiveness

Details.

My take: Your Holiness, thank you for your obviously sincere concern for the welfare of these unfortunate people. We have over 15 million in the United States, about 3/4 of whom are from Latin America and overwhelmingly your co-religionists. When can we begin sending them to the Vatican?

Your Holiness,

Please cram it.

Thank you.

If Frank is referring to America, he should realize that its inhabitable parts are filling up fast. There already isn't enough water to go around in Calif.

I'm sure there's plenty of room in the Domus Sanctae Marthae. Why isn't the pope sending out rescue boats to bring them all thither if he's so concerned?

Matthew 19:21. Or not.
We really really prefer to be lacking.

The Pope is wrong. Plain wrong.

Rome is going to end up like Constantinople: a Christian ghetto, supported by remittances from the Americas, surrounded by Muslims. Of course, +Francis will have gone to his rest by then and it will be someone else's problem.

Pope Francis tends to speak from his own political views which are based largely on Liberation Theology, not the views of his Magisterium. This comment was directed against Hungary which is building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants from Serbia. Hungary isn't going to take his advice. The Magyar are fiercely independent when it comes to protecting their endangered culture. That is one reason abortion is illegal in Hungary. Hungary also consistently challenges secularism. Hungary's constitution protects life from conception and bans torture, human trafficking, eugenics, and human cloning. It recognizes marriage as the "conjugal union of a man and a woman."
