VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis urged countries to greatly improve their welcome to migrants and stop collective expulsions, saying migrants’ dignity and right to protection trumps national security concerns.
Francis’ politically pointed message was made on Monday (Aug. 21) in view of the Catholic Church’s 2018 world refugee day, celebrated Jan. 14. It comes amid mounting anti-immigrant sentiment in Europe and beyond after waves of migrant arrivals and Islamic extremist attacks.
In the message, Francis demanded governments welcome, protect, promote and integrate migrants, saying Jesus’ message of love is rooted in welcoming the “rejected strangers of every age.” (Religion News Service, 21 August 2017)
As usual the pope comes out with nonsense!
He can urge Europe to take in all and any migrants because he lives safely behind papal walls!
It is proven that almost all Muslim migrants are illegal and come to gain financial benefits.
To speak of their ‘dignity’ and ‘right to protection’ is farcical when ISIS and others warned beforehand they would fill Europe with Muslims as a way of invasion and gaining control. The effects on Europe have been awful and are getting worse. We should NOT “improve (our) welcome” to migrants... we want them gone! This has to do with our security and our limited finances. We have paid into the tax system all our lives. They have not. we worked to gain any state benefits. They have not. And they do not intend to.
The pope’s allusion to “... Jesus’ message of love is rooted in welcoming the “rejected strangers of every age.”.”
Is just bunkum! WHAT ‘message of love”? And how is it rooted in ‘rejected strangers’?
Jesus came to die for the elect. He did not come to open up an immigration service. In Europe there is a growing movement to expel these ‘strangers’ because we can see what they do – they despise us.
Entering a country by throwing away one’s papers is illegal, by international law! Without knowing who a person is, where he comes from, and why he has moved, is essential in days of jihad.
And those who enter illegally live by illegal means and deception. Why should we welcome them?? Sorry Mr pope, but MY security trumps their “personal safety”. He demands that every border guard grants every migrant basic ‘rights’ and services, no matter what their legal status is!! Who does he think he is? The pope? No way do we want those who come in illegally. If they are legal and genuine we can then consider refugee status. But not before.
Francis’ demands are absurd and outrageous, given the way migrants have behaved. They do not deserve to live in decent surroundings, when they reduce Europe to third world dirt and garbage. Read the article and see the list of ignorant demands he makes! They must be rejected outright. He also speaks of integrating Muslims into society... but almost to a man they reject this and say they DO NOT WANT to integrate. Rather, they want Europe to submit.
As for so-called ‘unaccompanied children’... how many thus far have been proved to be well over child-age?
And how many have been proved to be behind wild rampages and crime? And how many were sent first, knowing that once a ‘child’ has been taken in, he can demand his parents et al can be admitted also?
I am used to working with facts not emotion. Emotions only fog issues. The facts I have seen over the years do not allow me to allow migrants easy access to any European country, but especially not the UK. Not when we excuse mass rape as ‘culture’ and criminal behaviour as Islamic and therefore acceptable. As a serious researcher I abhor the kind of material given by the pope and all who think emotions are the basis for making rational choices. Facts must speak for themselves, and I have weighed the facts properly – no way do I want any more Muslims in the UK. If I had the powers I would get rid of all the recent intake (past five years) especially. Then I would investigate all the others.
But, none of this in the pope’s message. We can expect this when Rome has been in secret talks with Muslims for several decades. Islam wants popes to rule over Jerusalem, thus removing control from Jews. And, as with Muslims, he is an unbeliever and just as pagan as those in Islam. He is no friend of Europe or of Christians
