Who the sam hell does Jorge Bergoglio think he is? Fancy hats to the contrary, I can say with 1000 % certainty (metaphysical certitude), that Jorge is nothing but a very fallible man. Just like the rest of us. Where on God’s green earth does he get off questioning Trump about his faith? And America about it’s immigration policy??
As Rush pointed out today, in the past 10 years Mexico took in 1,500 immigrants. That works out to 150 a year. America takes in more immigrants than the rest of the world combined. Plus refugees. Plus illegals. Over that same 10 year period, America took in over 20 million people.
We bail out other countries with disaster relief, earthquake relief, flood relief, famine relief and we have to listen to this jackass say we aren’t giving? We aren’t generous? We aren’t compassionate? The thing that kills me about this guy sitting inside his walled Vatican, is he is a lot like Quakers and other pacifists throughout history, they are damn lucky there are men willing to do their fighting. That other men will do the dying. ISIS would like nothing better than to ransack the Vatican. America stands in the way.
As to the idea of our government doing something the pope doesn’t consider Christian, I would hope it doesn’t! Hasn’t he heard of the separation of church and state? America doesn’t have a theocracy. What on earth does the bible have to do with our government?
And as far as Trump’s faith, he may not be the most polished Christian, but I think his quote about communion that got so much attention said a lot. “When we go into church — and when I drink my little wine, which is about the only wine I drink, and have my little cracker — I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness. I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed, OK?”
People forget the “I feel cleansed” part. I think he gets it. It doesn’t matter what I think anyway, or what Jorge thinks. Regardless of how fancy his chapeau is. God knows what is in Donald’s heart. God knows whether Donald has embraced Jesus or not. God is the Judge, not some guy in a fancy hat.
