Mr. Cardinal, Tear Down That Wall.

From Drudge.

Reuters: Vatican cardinal says U.S.-Mexico fence "inhuman"







Here is the wall surrounding the Vatican.
It's totally loaded up with guards and security.















There are a many poor people, bereft of hope,
That would love to get in
and see the Pope.

You know what? It is totally "inhuman" of the church, to keep out those pilgrims.
The Cardinal's hypocrisy is a microcosm of the world’s hypocrisy on the Mexican border issue.

Tear down your Vatican wall, Mr. Cardinal.

You would think a former Nazi syumpathizer wouldn't bitch about a border fence. I mean how many did they have around Polish concentration camps?

Friggin' hypocrite!

They always ignore the hypocrisy.

That's a "wall of faith". We just have to come up with a good name for our fence. Like "Friendship Fence".

Wyatt - He would argue that there is a big difference. There isn't really a rush to get into a c. camp.

RT - And we keep complaining about their ignorance.

DPT - That's why you're paid the big bucks. Or you shoot the big bucks. Awesome.

The Church should go back to doing what it does best:
Instituting archaic contraception policies and touching boys.

Unfortunately, the labor pool the Vatican has drawn from for the last 40 years has been uncomfortably European in sentiment. Leads to all kinds of these cringe- inducing moments.

Just wait until the African clerics continue their rise in seniority through the ranks. Should coincide nicely with the vigorous conservatism the Church is going to need if it doesn't want to be forced to relocate to Avignon again.

Oh wait... Avignon will be Islamic by then...

Maybe the LDS can spare some room in Salt Lake City...

The Cardinal also compared the fence to the Berlin Wall, but there is a HUGE difference between the two--I think someone needs to remind the Cardinal that the Berlin Wall was built by the government to keep people IN. The US government isn't building the fence along the border to keep US Citizens from leaving the US.

Did you know the "...pilgrims even invited the foreign Native Americans."

Maybe that's why the Vatican wants to keep them out. Dang brown people.

Geeez...the pimping's gone global.

Damian - Now that they have morally and collectively defrocked themselves, then much like the Dems, they are looking for a new base of support.

a4g - Once we suffer the next horrific event, their Eurocentric politics will probably be quite unwelcome in Salt Lake.

Bethie - As I said to Wyatt...

FIAR - It's like that Kennedy/Kerry style charity. More power to the masses, just as long as they don't have to touch them.

Insolublog said...

RT - It's part of that new community of 'global warming'.
