Commie Pope Criticizes Building Walls to Keep People Out —- But The Vatican Is Still Surrounded by Walls
Red Francis once again criticized building walls to keep out migrants.
The pope made the recent comments aboard his papal plane.
The pope made his comments to reporters aboard the plane returning from Morocco in response to a question about migration in general and about U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat to shut down the southern border with Mexico.
“Builders of walls, be they made of razor wire or bricks, will end up becoming prisoners of the walls they build,” he said.
Francis, who did not mention Trump in his response, has sparred with the U.S. president before over migration, which was a theme of several questions on the plane as well as during the trip to Morocco.
Trump has declared a national emergency to justify redirecting money earmarked for the military to pay for his promised U.S.-Mexico border wall.
“I realize that with this problem (of migration), a government has a hot potato in its hands, but it must be resolved differently, humanely, not with razor wire,” the Argentine-born pope said on the plane.
This is not the first time Pope Francis has spoken out against walls and fences.
Red Francis told the World Youth Day gathering in 2016 to reject borders and barriers. This comes after several Islamic terrorist attacks by migrants in Europe over the past month.
At least 65 countries have border barriers and border walls.
And the Vatican is surrounded by a protective wall and has been for centuries.
The walls were built for protection and to keep out invaders.
