Pope Frances on Trump’s Christianity

      Comments Off on Pope Frances on Trump’s Christianity

Pope Frances is one of my mentors, the man whom I admire and call a mercy to humanity, the man whom I would listen to in building a world of harmony. Keeping in line with his pronouncements replicating Jesus’ wisdom – blame the sin and not the sinner. 

I wish he had said, “Those of us who are followers of Christ have responsibilities to fulfill towards fellow beings, one among them is to build bridges and not walls, I pray that we all live up to our responsibilities including those who are deficit.”

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” Francis said when a reporter asked him about Mr. Trump on the papal airliner as he returned to Rome after his six-day visit to Mexico.

“Pope Francis waded into the United States’ immigration debate, criticizing presidential candidate Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall across the entire US/Mexico boarder. The comments came after a six-day trip to Mexico, culminating in the border city of Ciudad Juárez. Read the Human Rights Watch roadmap to immigration reform which emphasizes protection of immigrant families.”
