Pope Francis In Italy Calls On European Union To Step Up Response To Mediterranean Migrant Crisis

Pope Francis urged the European Union Saturday to step up international efforts to help migrants pouring into Italy, as the number crossing into the continent through the Mediterranean Sea nears record levels.

The pope brought up the migrant crisis during a meeting with Italian President Sergio Mattarella, who came into office earlier this year.

“It is evident that the proportions of the phenomenon demand much greater involvement,” he said, according to the Associated Press. “We must never tire of appealing for a more extensive commitment on the European and international level”…

    Modern slavery to force Blacks into controlled housing and paid to not get good jobs while keeping them segregated with no real future.
    One day the UN will flip-flop and call this a soft-slavery and oppression for Human Rights.
    Look at what Canada has after years of taking in “Refugees” from islamic nations , we have jihadists on our streets killing Canadians while the Somali Mosques have several pumping out Terrorists . The Toronto-18 Muslim terrorist were of Pakistan background and wanted to slaughter 10,000+ people in Toronto with Truck bombs.

    For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.

    Jorge is pathologically a godless commie at heart; his ignorance of theology and history is glaring; everything that he utters is an incoherent ramble of inane platitudes and politically correct buzz-words; he is a complete joke!

      Perhaps it’s time for the Vatican to have a yard sale.

      Let them pay for the Pope’s glorious plan.

        The estimated value of all of their bronzes and marbles and paintings and books and manuscripts is likely to be in the trillions of dollars; the value of their real estate and churches and cathedrals is also in the trillions!

          Another group of insanely rich people asking others to take care of the poor and downtrodden.

          In that regard, the Pope and his cronies remind me of Bono and U2.

    This pope is on the other side.

    Maybe he should call on the people of Islam to clean up their own backyard that is the underlying but primary cause of these deaths.

    This coming 2 days after we find that ‘migrants’ threw Christians overboard to drown while crossing the Mediterranean together. Why this particular man at this particular time, when leadership is so badly needed? I have more faith in my horoscope than anything he has to say.

    Over 1000 Muzz invaders have been landing on the shores of Italy each and every day. Will Francis pause pontificating for a moment and offer to put just one lousy day’s worth of “migrants” up at the Vatican?

    Is a bear Catholic?
    Does the Pope shit in the woods?

  • Jay Currie

    Well this fine mess is a slow moving disaster. Once the invaders are landed they get the full run of EU “human rights” plus benefits eligibility. Those lucky Swedes and Germans will get their share of the invaders… England may be able to hold them off a bit but not entirely.

    The Australian model of sending the boats back is the only thing which will work.

    The Euros, much less the Pope, will take a decade to figure that out.

  • Rosenmops

    A good portion of those “migrants” are Muslim invaders and colonists who would be happy to behead the Pope and turn the Vatican into a giant mosque .
