Conservatives lashed out at Pope Francis for calling for aid and protection for migrants and refugees.
The pope issued a message Monday, on the World Day of Migrants and Refugees, calling on world governments to offer safe and legal destinations for those who need help — and right-wing commentators freaked out, reported Media Matters.
Pope Francis argued that human dignity “obliges us to always prioritize personal safety over national security.”
A variety of right-wing social media users and websites attacked the pope over his biblical reminder to care for refugees.

The Pope is helping destroy western civilization and Christianity along with it. He is an evil fraud. https://t.co/eQ0Z5HFjDy

What the pope says here is pure Marxism, not Christianity.
It is the duty of all Christians to reject his nonsense. https://t.co/6URCUrunt3

Just like what has happened to the Catholic Church, it's totally Marxist controlled and the Pope might actually be a Jew.

According to Marxist Libturd Pope countries should let in ANYONE who wants to come in REGARDLESS of the DANGER they may pose to the country

Marxist Pope Francis is leading to apostasy, propagating a NWO interfaith religion, indoctrinated on New humanity and climate change.
