Now the Vatican has come out to spend the Pope remarks about the GOP front-runner Donald Trump was not being a Christian for building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants.
Some are saying the Pope was tricked into chiming in on the Presidential election. If the Pope did not want to get involved, he should not have spoken to the press about it.
Don’t get me wrong, the Pope is not stupid, and his spinners at the Vatican should learn that the American people are not stupid either. The Pope and his spinners can not unsay what he said.
From The Hill:
“The Pope said what we already know, if we followed his teaching and positions: we shouldn’t build walls, but bridges,” the spokesperson said in a statement, according to CNBC. “It’s his generic view, coherent with the nature of solidarity from the gospel.”
“This wasn’t, in any way, a personal attack or an indication on who to vote for,” the spokesperson continued. “The Pope has clearly said he didn’t want to get involved in the electoral campaign in the US and also said that he said what he said on the basis of what he was told [about Trump], hence giving him the benefit of the doubt.”
Just a few months ago, the pope said our gun owners and said they weren’t Christians.
This could even be spread out as a collective attack on all American citizens who overwhelmingly want a wall to protect our borders from enemies.
To end this story, visit the Vatican sometime. Huge walls surround the small city, and I don’t recall seeing any bridges leading inside. Like many in power, the Pope likes to tell the little people how to live but rarely do they practice what they preach.
