Pope Francis, arguably the most leftist pontiff in history, is now screeching that the United States had a distorted vision of the world.
Pope Francis told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica on Thursday that the United States of America—and Russia, China, North Korea and Bashar al Assad’s Syria—have “a distorted vision of the world.”
“I am afraid there are very dangerous alliances between powers who have a distorted view of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, Russia and Assad in the war in Syria,” the pope said. “The danger concerns immigration,” the pope continued to La Repubblica. “Our main and unfortunately growing problem in the world today is that of the poor, the weak, the excluded, which includes migrants.”
I’m sure he meant to say “terrorists,” but whatever. The United States of America values freedom, but it also values the rule of law. We don’t simply take in every wretched soul who lands on our soil, especially in the age of Islamic terror. Maybe self-preservation is an instinct Pope Francis does not possess, but it is one very important to the citizens of this country.
