POLL: The Holy See or the Donald?

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

francis donaldThis is a hell of a situation for an old(er) altar boy to find himself in, Save Jerseyans.

Lord know that I loathe the Donald. Regular readers know this! And I will always feel some sense of fealty – even if it’s only sentimental in nature – to the Holy See. But when Pope Francis, a guy whose political views rival those of his communist buddies the Castro Brothers, has the nerve to impugn Donald Trump‘s Christianity for asserting American sovereignty?

Give me a break! I almost thought it was an Onion post when I first read the Pope’s comments. They’re THAT hypocritical, and the Vatican’s impressive defensive walls (!) are only one reason why.

“The Mexican government and its leadership has made many disparaging remarks about me to the Pope, because they want to continue to rip off the United States, both on trade and at the border, and they understand I am totally wise to them,” the GOP front runner responded via Facebook. “The Pope only heard one side of the story – he didn’t see the crime, the drug trafficking and the negative economic impact the current policies have on the United States. He doesn’t see how Mexican leadership is outsmarting President Obama and our leadership in every aspect of negotiation.”

There are plenty of reasons to question Donald Trump’s character. This ain’t it. The Pope needs to do some soul searching of his own, read a freakin’ history book, and start taking on the prime villains of our time (Communist Cuba/China, Islamic terrorists, a certain Russian tyrant, etc.) and stay out of American electoral politics…

And by the way? He might’ve just cement Trump’s South Carolina win since he and Senator Ted Cruz are presently engaged in a full-on pissing contest over immigration (among other issues) down there.

So thanks for nothing, Holy Father. Not helpful.

But that’s just me. I want your take:

Who’s on the side of the angels regarding the U.S.-Mexican Border Wall?

  1. I have said this before on this blog that this Pope is not right. He is a political activist. Open borders are needed to usher in the NWO of which he is a part of. I am a Catholic and he gives me the creeps. Also, I thought we are not to judge others?

  2. As a Roman Catholic…my faith guides me in the bounds of my own life. But the Pope has no say in politics as our Constitution say “Separation of Church and State”. Just as a Presbyterian Synod has no say in our government…so too the Pope can not make policy. And…a Country w/o control of its’ border is not a Country. It is the obligation of the Federal government to protect its’ people first. What is left over can help others.

  3. I am not Catholic, so I don’t feel compelled to defend the pope, but the following is an excerpt I read that sounds like he was set up in order to give Trump some free publicity by making it sound like he was unfairly and hypocritically criticizing Trump: Francis was asked his thoughts about the views espoused by Trump, the billionaire businessman and former Atlantic City casino tycoon.

    “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” the pope said. “This is not in the gospel.”

    Asked if Catholics in the U.S. should vote for Trump, Francis said: “I am not going to get involved in that.”

    “I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that,” he added. “We must see if he said things in that way and in this I give the benefit of the doubt.”

  4. I agree w/Franklin Graham:
    The Pope has suggested that Donald J. Trump is not Christian because he wants to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. He said, “A person who thinks only about building walls wherever they may be and not building bridges is not Christian.” I agree that as Christians we should try to build bridges with everyone that we possibly can, but that doesn’t mean that we should compromise our national security. Donald Trump isn’t the only one who wants to build a wall—other Republican candidates Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Dr. Ben Carson, and John Kasich as well as millions of Americans, also want to build a wall—in order to protect America from enemies who want to use the U.S./Mexican border as a way to enter our country and do us harm. Are they not Christian either? My advice to the Pontiff—reach out and build a bridge to Donald Trump. Who knows where he may be this time next year! ~ Franklin Graham
