Pope Francis is one of the globalists’ lead spokesmen for open borders and mass migration.
He even once questioned Donald Trump’s Christianity over Trump’s support for a border wall.
Now one top conservative just shut him down.
Former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was interviewed on 60 Minutes.
Bannon is a devout and conservative Catholic whose faith helps shape his world view.
He was pressed by interviewer Charlie Rose about Pope Francis’ support for open borders in the context of Trump’s decision to end Barack Obama’s illegal DACA amnesty program.
Bannon shot back that while he respects Pope Francis and U.S. Bishops, support for open borders and mass migration was not Church doctrine.
CHARLIE ROSE: I remind you, a good Catholic, that Cardinal Dolan is opposed to what’s happened with DACA. Cardinal Dolan.
STEVE BANNON: The Catholic Church has been terrible about this.
CHARLIE ROSE: OK.
STEVE BANNON: The Bishops have been terrible about this. By the way, you know why? You know why? Because unable to really– to– to– to come to grips with the problems in the Church, they need illegal aliens, they need illegal aliens to fill the churches. That’s– it’s obvious on the face of it. That’s what– the entire Catholic Bishops condemn him.
CHARLIE ROSE: They?
STEVE BANNON: They have– they have an economic interest. They have an economic interest in unlimited immigration, unlimited illegal immigration. And as much as–
CHARLIE ROSE: –that’s a tough thing to say about your church.
STEVE BANNON: As much as I respect Cardinal Dolan and the Bishops on doctrine, this is not doctrine. This is not doctrine at all.
CHARLIE ROSE: Let me talk–
STEVE BANNON: I– I totally respect the Pope and I totally respect the Catholic Bishops and Cardinals on doctrine. This is not about doctrine. This is about the sovereignty of a nation. And in that regard, they’re just another guy with an opinion.
Bannon is correct.
Championing illegal immigration and open borders is a political opinion held by Pope Francis.
It is not backed up by Scripture.
Conservative Review writes:
Eighteen prominent evangelical leaders from various Christian and political organizations signed the letter, including CRTV host and Conservative Review contributor Steve Deace.
“We agree that immigration reform and DACA are difficult subjects,” the letter states. “God loves the foreigner. Indeed, God loves us all. It takes time to discern the balance of mercy and justice by which a nation thrives.”
The signing evangelicals took a strong stand against open borders and blanket amnesty for illegal immigrants, urging elected officials to remember their responsibility to “defend and uphold the Constitution and the rule of law.” “Though there are tragic stories on every side of illegal migration, for our elected officials, responsibility to oaths must prevail,” they write. “Law and order sustain stability and peace. A nation of wise rule grows strong enough to sustain care for the vulnerable in our midst.”
The letter charged pro-amnesty faith groups with using “selective” interpretations of Scripture to support their position, ignoring parts of the Bible that support national sovereignty.
“While some faith groups use selective Bible words for open borders and amnesty, we consider the whole counsel of Scripture. We find that the Bible does not teach open borders, but wise welcome. We are to welcome the lawful foreigner, who, like a convert, comes as a blessing (e.g. Ruth and Rahab). We also find Nehemiah building walls to protect citizens from harm. In Isaiah 1, we see God condemning the destruction of borders and indigenous culture,” the letter states.
In conclusion, the EBI letter petitions President Trump, “while treating undocumented people kindly,” to “first and foremost honor often forgotten American citizens whose families have served our nation for many generations, and the patient people who have applied lawfully to come here and to become citizens of the United States. These lives also matter. These people also dream.”
Do you agree that supporting open borders and illegal immigration is not supported by Scripture?
