To say that Catholics are upset with Pope Francis is an understatement.
He is doing everything he can to have the church that built Western Civilization appease a mob that wants to destroy it.
And now Catholics are calling Pope Francis a hypocrite after what he said about persecuted Christians.
Taking up the cause of protecting persecuted Christians is a great one.
There is no group in the modern day more persecuted for their beliefs than Christians, especially in third world Middle Eastern countries.
In many parts of the world, being a Christian is a death sentence to mobs of radical Islamic extremists.
For his part, Pope Francis spent time over the weekend praising the witness of those who face violence and death for “merely the fact of being Christians.”
One of the difficulties faced by followers of Christ is “the physical threat against them, that is, direct persecution against them personally, to the point of being killed,” Pope Francis told crowds gathered in Saint Peter’s Square.
“How many Christians are persecuted even today throughout the world!” he said. “They suffer for the Gospel with love, they are the martyrs of our day. And we can say with certainty that there are more of them than the martyrs of the early times: so many martyrs, merely for the fact of being Christians.”
He spoke about how those killed can only lose their body, but not their soul, adding that “the only fear that a disciple should have is to lose this divine gift.”
But his words don’t mean much to many Christians considering that Francis has done little to actually stop this persecution, and in many cases have supported the very people leading this persecution.
Pope Francis has been a supporter of the mass importation of refugees from the Middle East to Europe and the United States.
Now that persecution is being spread to those areas, where Christians are routinely attacked in grizzly attacks by Islamic radicals brought in as refugees.
In fact, on the very same day he took time to defend refugees.
“The coronavirus crisis has highlighted the need to ensure the necessary protection for refugees, in order to guarantee their dignity and safety,” he said.
The cause of defending Christian refugees can be a good one, but more often than not, the refugees being imported into first world countries are not Christian, and instead bring the very oppression Christians face in the Middle East to the countries they move to.
And just removing people from those areas does nothing to fix the underlying problems at hand.
Do you think Pope Francis should stop supporting mass immigration?
