[In the guise of his February prayer intention video]

Pope Francis has slyly attacked Donald Trump in response to the 45th President of the United States’ recent executive orders banning certain refugees and immigrants from entering the country.

Pope Francis made these comments as part of his monthly YouTube series entitled The Pope Video. After announcing his prayer intentions for February, as well as confirming that the theme for the month was for Catholics to “welcome the needy,” Pope Francis asked Catholics to pray that the “poor, refugees, and marginalized” would find “welcome and comfort in our communities.”

These comments came just a few days after Donald Trump signed an executive order that restricted the number of foreign nationals and refugees that are allowed into the United States Of America. Pope Francis then really turned his attention to Donald Trump, as he mentioned “skyscrapers” and “real estate deals,” both of which Trump is intrinsically associated with.

“We live in cities that throw up skyscrapers and shopping centers and strike big real estate deals but they abandon a part of themselves to marginal settlements on the periphery. The result of this situation is that great sections of the population are excluded and marginalized: without a job, without options, without a way out. Don’t abandon them.”

This isn’t the first time that the Catholic Church has made reference to Donald Trump’s actions since he signed the Executive Order.

On Wednesday, the Archbishop Angelo Becciu confirmed to TV2000, via the Huffington Post, that Pope Francis is indeed worried about the President’s actions.

“Certainly there is worry because we are messengers of another culture, that of openness. Pope Francis, in fact, insists on the ability to integrate those who arrive in our societies and cultures.”

Various other members of the Church have been quick in their condemnation of Donald Trumps actions, especially as Bishops and other members of the clergy have previously looked to help refugees find new homes and build lives in different countries.

Pope Francis had been hoping to forge a friendlier relationship with the President. Francis even sent a message to Donald Trump to commemorate his Inauguration on January 20th, which detailed how he hoped the President could bring the world together during his time in power.

“At at time when our human family is beset by grave humanitarian crises demanding far-sighted and united political responses, I pray that your decisions will be guided by the rich spiritual and ethical values that have shaped the history of the American people and your nations’ commitment to the advancement of human dignity and freedom worldwide. Under your leadership, may America’s stature continue to be measured above all by its concern for the poor, the outcast and those in need.”

This isn’t the first time that Pope Francis has voiced his concerns about Donald Trump.

Back in February, 2016, Pope Francis told a plane full of reporters, including those from NBC News, that Donald Trump’s now infamous plea to build a wall to keep Mexicans out of the USA wasn’t Christian.

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”

Donald Trump reacted furiously to Pope Francis’ comments, as he uploaded a lengthy post to his website that even mentioned a possible ISIS attack on the Vatican and was heavily critical of Pope Francis for questioning Donald Trump’s faith.

“If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the Pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been President because this would not have happened. For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. I am proud to be a Christian and as President I will not allow Christianity to be consistently attacked and weakened, unlike what is happening now, with our current President. No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith.”

  1. The Pope Video — Season 2 Episode 2

    Posted by hereisjorgebergoglio on 2/4/17

    The newest piece of propaganda released by the Vatican today is brazen statement of the new world order when one looks at what it is implying. Titled, Welcome the needy, the video starts with the latest video fad, the ‘mannequin challenge’— in which all the actors are frozen as if suspended in time — until it focuses on a white European male who is sitting up against the wall of a building with his few possessions, shaking due to the cold weather. The voice of Francis says, “The result of this situation is that great sections of the population are excluded and marginalized: without a job, without options, without a way out” as this freezing man is shown. From this we assume he in homeless and unemployed. Next we sees the hapless white European male being helped by three people two of whom appear to be from Africa. It’s not a stretch to imagine these blacks from Africa are Moslem. The video speaks to the viewer on several levels.

    The first is that Europe and the countries of the world are multicultural which could become utopias, if we would help each other out.

    The second message is that black Moslems from North Africa are more compassionate than Europeans and everything would be great if only the white European looked to the wise compassionate African for help.

    Thirdly, is the reality of the situation in Europe and much of the world which is 180 degrees opposite of what the video portrays. We will only focus on Europe. The economy is in dire straits due to the Christians in Europe not reproducing. This has led to many including Francis to call for an increase in immigration. They don’t care what the religion, morals, or beliefs of these new immigrants are as long as they come to Europe. The powers that be don’t even care if these new immigrants follow the laws of the countries they arrive in, as to hold them to the laws wouldn’t be compassionate and would be offensive. These new immigrants (Moslem invaders) go onto the dole (to the tune of 99.8%) and get preference from the government over the natives who often get their government assistance cut to nothing. So many new immigrants have arrived that it has financially stressed the countries they have arrived in as well as the infrastructure. These governments then raise the taxes on companies and citizens in their countries which leads to more unemployed and destitute, who now receive zilch from the government because they are not designated with the politically correct moniker of refugees/financial immigrants.

    Francis the ‘liberal’ clown sits at his desk with his remedy for Europe, “Pray with me for those who are weighed down, especially the poor, refugees and marginalized, that they might find welcome and support in our communities.” The only thing which will result from Francis’ actions will be the speeding up of the process of the de-Christianization of Europe as it is turned into a hodge podge of pagan religions and noahidism. A better prayer would be that Europe rediscovers the Faith which made it great and begins to practice it once again.

  2. I do wish the Pope would stop commenting on political issues, which he appears to know little about, and instead comment on issues in which he is qualified, such as….er…um…????

    • I dunno. I wish he’d go on exposing his ignorance and malice. So far, he never disappoints. Once you think he can’t get any worse, he tops himself! The worse the better.

      • If you mean that he is showing himself up by his constant anti Catholic comments and that hopefully everyone will wake up to how dangerous he is then you are right. The problem with that idea however is that the Neo Cons still seem to keep defending him! I still hear apparently conservative priests quoting Pope Francis from the pulpit as though he was a modern prophet.
