That’s rich. Last time I was there, the Pope’s entire city-state was surrounded by this:
I doubt that any wall Trump could build at the Mexican border would be as impressive as these fortifications. Ah, but the neo-Catholic defenders of the indefensible have a way out! You see, Francis did not actually build the Vatican walls himself. They were already there, having been built in the days when the Pope was under attack by barbarians, Muslims and other enemies—with whom the Church now dialogues as they destroy our civilization without firing a shot. Francis merely benefits from the walls that were already there. Big difference.
Also already there when Francis arrived were the heavily armed Swiss guards keeping everyone out, along with one of the world’s strictest immigration policies, according to which only “ as “the most popular moral heresy in the world.” Well, Francis is nothing if not popular. But any well-catechized child knows that it is never permissible to violate one Commandment on the pretense of following another, and that such “conflicts” in reality do not exist. We may never “do evil that good may come (Romans 3:7-8).” Francis, alarmingly enough, appears not to recognize that the ends of an action can never justify the means, but rather both means and ends must always conform to the moral law.
Francis, whose divinely imposed duty is to defend the Church’s moral teaching without compromise, even during press conferences, continues to display his disdain for such “rigorism.” But at this juncture, really, whatever. Does any observant Catholic still take Francis’s prattling seriously? All we need to know is that whenever we see this—
we must brace ourselves for yet another barrage of exploding blunders. Meanwhile, we can only pray for deliverance from this absurd pontificate and the manic cult that surrounds it, surely one of the greatest debacles in Church history.
