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.
