“It’s true we are a society that doesn’t have children, but we close the doors to migrants. This is called suicide.”
[Does he mean that two children are not enough?]
Francis’ words upon exiting the Basilica of St. Bartholomew, Isola Tiberina, Rome, Italy — Saturday, 22 April 2017
“Thank you for being here. Thank you for your prayers. This church of the martyrs this reminded me of the cruelty, the cruelty that so many people have to suffer, the exploitation of people I’m reminded of the people who come here in boats and they are left there (in internment camps), in generous countries like Italy and Greece who receive them but then because of international agreements don’t allow them to move on. If Italy was able to welcome two migrants per municipality there would be room for everyone. And this generosity of the South (of Italy) of Lampedusa, Sicily, Lesvos, if only it could infect a bit the North (of Italy). It’s true we are a society that doesn’t have children, but we close the doors to migrants. This is called suicide. Let us pray!”
We have a bright idea for Francis…
…why doesn’t he tell Europeans to practice the Faith, get married, not to use birth control, and to have children instead of telling Catholic women to stop reproducing irresponsibly and breeding like rabbits?
