Europe’s Migration Crisis: No End in Sight

Pope Francis, on his recent visit to the Greek island of Lesbos, said that Europe must respond to the migrant crisis with solutions that are “worthy of humanity.” He also decried “that dense pall of indifference that clouds hearts and minds.” The Pope then proceeded to demonstrate what he believes is a response “worthy of humanity” by bringing 12 Syrian Muslims with him on his plane to Italy. “It’s a drop of water in the sea. But after this drop, the sea will never be the same,” the Pope mused.

The Pope’s speech did not contain a single reference to the harsh consequences of Muslim migration into the European continent for Europeans. Instead, the speech was laced with reflections such as “…barriers create divisions instead of promoting the true progress of peoples, and divisions sooner or later lead to confrontations” and “…our willingness to continue to cooperate so that the challenges we face today will not lead to conflict, but rather to the growth of the civilization of love.”

    Pope Evita Bergoglio, the Idiot, has proven over time to have been an excellent choice.
    There is little question of him ever backsliding into reality and ever failing to faithfully represent the worldview of his foolish electors.

    Golden Dawn has a better idea.

    If you want a civilization of love, then you need to start with a culture promoting a civil, secular state.

    It’s like there’s a contest between the Pope and Shiny Pony over who can spout more platitudes per minute.

    “Divisions sooner or later lead to confrontations”. Yes they do. Nazism had to be confronted. Communism had to be confronted. Islam has to be confronted. Evil always has to be confronted. You would think a pope of all people would understand this.

    A drop in the sea? Taken literally, a good idea.

    The Pope should have stayed on that Island and become a Lesbian.
