Pope Francis Lectured The US On Immigration, But Forgot To Mention THIS About The Vatican

Western Journalism – by F. Peter Brown

Pope Francis recently lectured a joint session of Congress about the importance of generosity toward immigrants from Central and South America who come to America. His exact words were:

Thousands of persons are led to travel north in search of a better life for themselves and for their loved ones, in search of greater opportunities. Is this not what we want for our own children? We need to avoid a common temptation nowadays: to discard whatever proves troublesome. Let us remember the Golden Rule: ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’

Pope Francis is the head of state of the Vatican, which possibly has the most restrictive immigration policies of any nation in the entire world.

While the Vatican welcomes millions of visitors every year, only a very select few people are admitted as residents or citizens.

About 450 of the Vatican’s 800 residents are citizens. They consistent primarily of cardinals of the church, the Vatican’s diplomats around the world, or those who live there because of their jobs, like the Swiss guards.

Only a few of the Vatican’s citizens are women.

The Washington Times sent an email to the Vatican spokesman asking for a comment but received no reply.

Texas Representative Michael Burgess stated the following about the pope’s call for generosity toward immigrants:

The thing that always strikes me when we get into these discussions is the United States takes in more people every year legally than the rest of the world combined. You start from that premise — it was 1.7 million last year, you want to add another 400,000 to 600,000 that came in without the benefit of doing it the right way. What is the right number? If over 2 million is not enough, would someone please tell me what that right number is, and would other countries act accordingly.

What do you think of Pope Francis’ call for Congress to have more compassion on immigrants? Share and comment below.

  1. A reasonable compromise is to match the Vatican, but account for the size and wealth differences. The Vatican had a wealth estimated at $15 billion. The US is in the negative billions, with estimates varying between 18 and 200 billion in debt. To level the playing field, the US should accept one immigrant for every 5 the Vatican takes in. Those accepted should be from the same country as those admitted by the Vatican as well. Seems fair to me.

    1. “… the US should accept one immigrant for every 5 the Vatican takes in.”



      Please pay close attention to the last line in this commercial, AZ…


  2. I bet his view would change if all these immigrants were at his doorstep as they have already gotten thru ours

    Hey , I thought I saw a bible passage that said
    Put up or shut up .. Well maybe in my view

  3. I am sure the real wealth of the Vatican is in the trillions.
    Why don’t the refugees crowed the Vatican like tourists and just not leave?
    Set up their tents and defecate all over the plaza.

    1. Think about this, Winkle….

      The Vatican holds the largest archive of world history and knowledge on the planet (aside from their butt-buddies who have bought or stolen those secrets)…

      Think of the vast storehouse of knowledge that would change the course of the future if we could get our hands on it and dispense it to the world.

  4. The pope should have chewed our asses for our social error and his infallibility that he sits on a throne of gold while kissing banker ass that Jesus hated to the point 0f execution. Yeah, we need less war and more religion, More God and less government We need equal parts of you and me and smaller parts of Rockefeller and Rothschild. End the fed and end the wars

  5. Hey, pope Francis and the United States can both kiss my feet since your true master is your servant. Kiss my feet and I will believe you. Otherwise you can kiss my ass because you believe in nothing but wealth redistribution from the middle class and the working poor to feed your murderous asses on endless war. It’s enough to make me hope that there’s a hell. I like my neighbors. I hate the pope and the state and I think Jesus had damned little to say about either one,

  6. “Pope Francis is the head of state of the Vatican, which possibly has the most restrictive immigration policies of any nation in the entire world”

    I’m guessin’ Israhell is probably a close second.

    Just a shot in the dark, I haven’t actually looked it up or anything.

  7. The jesuit poops first words on amerikan soil were about global warming.
    Hey, fact check your vatican science class. There were glaciers in amerika way back when.
    Forget the pedophiles in the church, the usurers “that were thrown out of the room under jc” controlling the globe and creating more poverty and war. Wonder who those people are? I could go on and on.
    I heard “the golden rule”, I live by it mofo.
    Smoke and Mirrors.

    Din not get the banana in the tailpipe

  8. Why does anyone give a sailing shit what the pope says?

    His hands are covered with the blood of babies sacrificed to Satan, and he’s going to preach to me about morality? That’s funny.

    I’d like to see an angry mob string him up from a tree limb after ramming that silly yarmulke down his throat.
