Pope’s Easter Message Condemns Those Who Prevent Migrants from Crossing Borders
Today at Breitbart: "Just as he did during his Christmas address, Pope Francis on Easter remembered the suffering of migrants from the Middle East and North Africa, but this time condemned those who wish to prevent them from crossing borders.During his urbi et orbi address from St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, the pope remembered the suffering of people from Syria, Libya and Yemen and urged Christians to reach out to them."

“The Easter message of the risen Christ,” he said, is “a message of life for all humanity, echoes down the ages and invites us not to forget those men and women seeking a better future, an ever more numerous throng of migrants and refugees — including many children — fleeing from war, hunger, poverty and social injustice.”

He had particularly harsh words for those who wish to prevent migrants from seeking safety outside their homeland.

“All too often, these brothers and sisters of ours meet along the way with death or, in any event, rejection by those who could offer them welcome and assistance.” READ MORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Well this should make George Soros and the 'world without borders' crackpots happy. Soros, who has even denounced his native Hungary for protecting its borders and culture, seems to be ghostwriting homilies for Pope Francis the Great lately. The radical billionaire financier behind almost every border-busting project in Europe and the U.S. -- a man who has been called the 'biggest mass migration-promoting coyote on the planet' -- couldn't have asked for a better pope.
