So much for the Pope’s power of persuasion

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 18, 2016

Invasion of Europe news…..

I wasn’t planning to write about the Pope’s propaganda stunt in Greece late last week where he visited the island of Lesbos and picked 12 lucky Syrian Muslims to take back to Rome with him, but there is one little bit I want you to see in this report from The Guardian.

Pope Yazidi

If he wasn’t going to help Christians, the Pope could have sent an extremely important message if he had taken 12 of the persecuted minority—Yazidis!—back to Rome. Photos: http://www.theguardian.com/world/gallery/2016/apr/16/pope-francis-europe-visits-lesbos-in-pictures

One of the major themes throughout the last nearly nine years that I’ve written this blog has been the criticism toward phony Christian/Jewish charity that depends on stealing from taxpayers in order to help the downtrodden all the while claiming credit for being charitable.

I don’t consider that charity—taking Caesar’s money and transferring it from one group of people to another isn’t charity!  But, it has become such an established practice no one seems to think about it anymore.

So, see this toward the end of The Guardian story (which by the way does not tell us if the Pope’s 12 Syrian Muslims will live completely on the Vatican’s dime and not the Italian government—something I doubt we will ever learn because the answer is probably that the Italian taxpayer will be footing their bill for years to come).

Get this! the Pope has been unable to persuade European Catholic Dioceses to take in refugee families!

Is it because they are primarily Muslim ‘refugees,’ or because the churches have become so conditioned to the concept that ‘Christian’ charitable money comes from the taxpayer that they no longer want to pony-up out of their own private funds?  A little of both? Who knows?

The three families, who had initially set their sights on reaching Germany or another European country, were expected to seek asylum in Italy.

Their arrival brings to about 20 the number of refugees living in the Vatican, which has fewer than 1,000 inhabitants. A similar intake across Europe would see 6 million people given asylum on the continent of 300 million. [Does the Vatican give them special Muslim prayer rooms, etc.—ed]

Last year, the pope appealed to every Catholic diocese in Europe to take in a refugee family, an appeal that fell on deaf ears across most parts of the continent.

The number of migrants arriving in Greece has fallen drastically since Turkey agreed to take back all those landing on the Greek islands in return for billions in EU cash and other concessions.

And, by the way, never forget that it is Turkey that originally allowed the launch of hundreds of thousands of Middle Easterners and Africans from their shores to invade Europe. Most of the Syrian Muslims were safe in Turkey.

For all of our posts on the ‘Invasion of Europe’ click here.   And, don’t forget, it was this Pope who first welcomed the invaders to Europe when he blessed the migrants on Lampedusa in 2013.

  8. Ann, something that I noticed some years ago and have seen no mention by anyone of the oddity about protest signs…It matters not what nation people are in they write their protest signs in English. In Spain, Italy, or Germany most would not be able to read the signs in the photos above. My conclusions…Those bearing the signs could care less if anyone in the crowd knows what that sign is saying. Their targets…The bleeding hearts of America, and we have so very many of them.

  10. The pope is nothing more than a traitor, selling out his own believers. Islamic rapeugee scum have been responsible for countless acts of terrorism and crime in Europe, yet this senile old fool takes them in anyways. I keep praying he will have that long overdue heart attack, as the cameras are rolling during his act of treason, bit it looks like he will keep cursing us with his presence for the time being. It looks like the globalists have done a very good job of infiltrating religions, as evidenced by the shift in position by the Catholics, and among the Mormons, most notably. As usual, the cause of this seems to be money, as we see with prominent wealthy figures like Marriott, a Mormon, who keeps putting his influence behind illegals and mass immigration so that he will have a huge pool of cheap labor to exploit.

  11. He should have learned from 2 Kings 20:13. Hezekiah brought some Babylonians to see his treasures… Big mistake. Fatal for his descendants…

    The problem being, Ann, is that Catholic Charities and Lutherans here in the states are the ones bringing more of the “refugees” to our shores, thanks to Obama and his henchmen.

    The Pope is a joke and hopefully people will recognize his stunt as such. Noy very wise for a person who millions look up to, to pull this kind of stunt.

  13. Donald Trump is coming to my City of Buffalo this evening. It is overwhelming to find out that our area is one of the largest areas targeted for more Muslims to come. We have a large number already living here. We have a large number of welfair population and how is taxpayer’s going to provide more money to pay for this??? After reading the story about the Popes visit to Syrian I strongly agree that he could of made a better choice to bring back former Muslims who were pursucuted for becoming Christians. How does this represent the Christian community?

      Answer: it doesn’t. Except in the most shallow and insincere form.

  15. ATTENTION CATHOLIC READERS!

    The USCCB has launched a National Catholic-Muslim dialogue. Partners include ISNA and the Islamic Circle of North America. Inter-faith dialogue is not new as CAIR is active in the churches trying to seek ‘common ground’ and ‘building bridges’. Per Stephen Coughlin, they view the bridge as one way – us travelling to their side as they have no interest in Christianity.

    My assumption is that you will hear more about this in your churches and the priests will be encouraged by their bishops to seek this ‘understanding’. How does this related to this article? “Good question.”

    Is the pope setting the tone for this dialogue? Is the pope setting an example that he wants us to follow? Will we see a push in the parishes to “adopt” Syrians sent to the United States by the UN?

    What about the persecuted Christians? Our government is ignoring their plight. CHRISTIANS ARE PESECUTED BY THE ‘REFUGEES’ THAT THE ADMINISTRATION WANTS TO RESETTLE IN THE UNITED STATES!

    Talk to your priests and fellow parishioners. Pray for persecuted Christians and let them know that the persecution is at the hands of Islam by the people that the UN will be sending to the United States!

    Here is the link to the statement by the USCCB:

      I have left my church, since it is in thrall to the USCCB (U.S. Conference of Communist Bishops) and to that “New World Odor” toady that currently sits in Peter’s chair.

    Appearing before Congress recently, a top Homeland Security official struggled to answer a simple question: How many foreign visitors to the United States overstay their visas every year?

    A new report by the Department of Homeland Security has added urgency to the problem. It found that nearly HALF A MILLION PEOPLE overstayed their visas last year alone. ISIS has even made it a centerpiece of its new strategy — creating a sophisticated “fake document industry” to help its foot soldiers slip in and out of the U.S. unnoticed. http://tinyurl.com/zzkjvyz

    (Of course, any estimate released by the Administration should be considered low and self-serving.)

    “… Most of the Syrian Muslims were safe in Turkey….”

    Absolutely! NPR {Yes I did say NPR!} wrote an Investigative article on the ‘boat people” couple years ago –they were all perfectly safe and doing just fine in Turkey –but, ECONOMIC REFUGEES wanted to jump in a boat because they heard about all the FREEBIES Europe was giving away and knew gov’t had to rescue them.

    — which is why I want to scream at my TV every time media bleeding hearts show more boat people. (CNN was at it again this past weekend –if an org like NPR felt it necessary to investigate –then you know the jig is up!)

    The most disgusting part — that group a few months ago that held their little babies over the edge of the boat and threatened the coast guard that they would drown their own babies if they weren’t allowed to get in the country –of course the coast guard could not let innocent little babies deaths be on their conscious — but what the hell kind of human beings would be willing to drown their own babies???

    — and I still cannot believe that any country would be willing to accept the kind of people that are willing to KILL their Own children just to get a free ride in life, They should have been immediately sent back to Turkey. –and the media — felt sorry for them!

    Maybe our media is just too stupid to be aware that the majority of these boat people were/are safe and living in Turkey. When will CNN & Network news do their homework? * * * Media Feeling sorry for BABY KILLERS! * * *

    sorry for the ramble….will close now…blood pressure ready to explode.
