The Communist Pope (no, not the Nazi Pope, he’s playing bowls in his retirement slippers) has called border walls immoral.
Anyone who has visited or seen pictures of the Pope’s home will have been struck by the incredible displays of conspicuous wealth around every corner, crevice and niche.
Amazingly, the gold, jewels and priceless art seems to stay firmly in-situ, despite the Pope’s clear desire for open borders and his kum by yah attitude to the hordes of envious visitors each day.
It’s almost as if, oh I dunno, the huge walls, heavy doors, sophisticated locks and an actual private army seem to assist in some way in ensuring the visitors don’t doss down on the floor of St. Peter’s basilica each night and wander off with a few orbs and sceptres on their way out the following morning.
In fact, during WWII, the Vatican actively prevented asylum-seekers from entering the church by use of an ID card system. There were some famous exceptions to this such as Hugh O’Flaherty, but the general rule was “sod off and good luck with the Germans“.
Our trusty rule of looking at the delta between an expressed vs. revealed opinion helps determine what the truth is in this situation.
