Pope Francis has made many of even the most devout Catholics uneasy with his radical leftist perspective on numerous topics. Many believe that he is planting the seeds of his own Church’s downfall by being so accommodating to Muslim migrants who have no intention of assimilating into Western culture.
Pope Francis recently spoke out in favor of a globalist “open borders” policy that would allow the free flow of non-European migrants, including Muslims, into Europe. Leading French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, who many have dubbed “France’s Trump,” recently spoke out against what the Pope said and leveled him with a painful truth.
Le Pen criticized the Pope for demanding “that states go against the interests of their own people by not placing conditions on the acceptance of significant numbers of migrants” and said that Francis does not have the place to be taking this stand on a political issue. She explained, “To me, this falls within the realm of politics and even interference, since he is also a head of state.”
Le Pen said that the Pope was a hypocrite for insisting that countries take on migrants, when he lives in the sovereign state the Vatican which is surrounded by walls and has some of the world’s toughest citizenship and immigration standards. She said, “I have a strong faith and I am fortunate in that I have never doubted it. However, I admit that I am angry with the Church because I think that it interferes in everything except what it should really be concerned with.”
She said that she is excited to go up against her Hillary-like center-left opponent, detailing, “I have always said that I’d like to be up against Emmanuel Macron in the second round because then the choice will be clear-cut. He is an unashamed globalist who wants to speed up the total opening of borders, free-exchange, and the evisceration of France in favor of private and financial interests. I, on the other hand, propose a return to the nation-state, the most effective structure to ensure security, prosperity, and democracy, and to protect our identity.” Do you hope that “France’s Trump” wins?
