The head of the Catholic church strikes again. This time Pope Francis accused the west of racism on Good Friday during an interview with Italian television.
During the interview, Italian-based reporter Lorena Bianchetti asked Pope Francis if there’s “prejudice toward those war victims who flee from other parts of the world” or will refugees be “subdivided into the category of being an annoyance.”
Here is Pope Francis’ response according to a transcript from the Vatican:
Pope Francis: “It is true. Refugees are subdivided. There’s first class, second class, skin colour, [if] they come from a developed country [or] one that is not developed. We are racists, we are racists. And this is bad. The problem of the refugees is a problem that Jesus suffered too, because he was a migrant and a refugee in Egypt when he was a child, to escape death.”
“How many of them are suffering to escape death! There is an image of the flight into Egypt that a Piedmont artist executed. He sent it to me and I made holy cards from it. It shows Joseph with the baby who are fleeing. But Saint Joseph does not have a beard, no. He is Syrian, from today, with a baby, who is fleeing the war today. An anguished face that these people have, just like Jesus, forced to flee. And Jesus went through all these things, he is still there,” he added.
“On the cross, there are people from the countries of Africa at war, of the Middle East at war, of Latin America at war, of Asia at war. Several years ago I said that we are living a third world war in pieces. But we have not learned. I – I am a minister of the Lord and a sinner, chosen by the Lord, but a sinner nevertheless – when I went to Redipuglia in 2014 for the commemoration of the centenary, I saw and I wept. All I could do was weep. All the young men, all the boys. Then one day, I went to the cemetery in Anzio, and I saw those young men who landed in Anzio. All young! And I wept there yet again. I am moved to tears before this. I think it was two years ago when there was the commemoration of the landing in Normandy,” he continued.
As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Pope Francis spoke out last month about Russia’s “slaughters and atrocities” in Ukraine. He called the invasion an unjustified “senseless massacre” and encouraged leaders to stop “this repugnant war.”
The current Pope has been outspoken about many things. He claimed, for example, that taxation was an important tool for socialists.
The Pope praised Joe Biden as a “Good Catholic” despite supporting abortion. He ignores the Biden family’s corruption in doing so as well. The Pope also is accused of being on the side of globalists and others pushing climate change and world depopulation.
According to a report from Breitbart, a memorandum circulating among the Catholic cardinals who will elect the next pope calls the Francis pontificate a “disaster” and a “catastrophe” while laying out essential tasks for the next successor to Saint Peter.
