[Barf Alert] Cardinal: Europeans Should Be ‘Fiercely Ashamed’ for Treatment of Migrants

Cardinal: Europeans Should Be ‘Fiercely Ashamed’ for Treatment of Migrants

Earlier this week, the cardinal expressed his opinion that the political inaction on the Mediterranean refugee crisis is due to “fear of right-wing parties.”

“I find it outrageous that we’re letting people drown in the Mediterranean; that our hearts have become so hard; that politics no longer dares to act for fear of right-wing parties,” Hollerich told RTL Radio.

In his Christmas diatribe on behalf of migrants, the cardinal brought in another topic dear to the pontiff’s heart — climate change — suggesting that many of those migrating are being forced out of their countries by global warming.

The first to suffer the effects of climate change are the less fortunate people in third-world countries, the cardinal said, namely, those fleeing for Europe.

“...suggesting that many of those migrating are being forced out of their countries by global warming.”

Bullcrap.

They’re being displaced by unending wars and murderous, troglodyte-from-hell muslims(SPIT!).

Reading sick stuff like this from a lying leftist clergy is really upsetting. No one is being allowed to drown in the mediterranean in fact accepting the so called refugees was causing tens of thousands of people to set out to sea in small boats. And this has absolutely nothing to do with climate change. What a kook.
The obnoxious North Africans who have been plaguing many Italian tourist areas are working for the Mafia.

What - did you hold a gun to their heads forcing them to get on the overloaded boats?

How much time and effort has this Cardinal and his associates spent on condemning abortion and contraception over the last 50 years?

Has the Cardinal ever read 2241 of the Catechism, which concludes with:

"Political authorities, for the sake of the common good for which they are responsible, may make the exercise of the right to immigrate subject to various juridical conditions, especially with regard to the immigrants' duties toward their country of adoption. Immigrants are obliged to respect with gratitude the material and spiritual heritage of the country that receives them, to obey its laws and to assist in carrying civic burdens."

Dear Cardinal. The Church, AND Pope Francis should be “Fiercely Ashamed” for not culling the Church of those who would prey on the innocent sexually. “Fiercely Ashamed!!” In fact, not doing so should be grounds for being asked to leave the priesthood.

Further, the Church should be “Fiercely Ashamed” for not fighting for the rights of those people who are dispossessed in their homelands, or who are the victims of economic malfeasance (e.g. Venezuela) such that they feel it necessary to leave their homes and travel significant distances to find opportunity.

Why are you not condemning corruption in Mexico, and Central and South America? Why are you not condemning Islamic violence in Africa? Why are you not applauding countries like Hungary, who are trying to maintain a Christian heritage?

We all can do better, and I do not in any way make my comments as a pseudo-pious hypocrite. I have plenty to atone for. That said, YOU need to realize and understand that you are among those who need to do better. Take the plank out of your own eye before you start asking others to take the splinter out of theirs. You should also realize that by being as critical and self-serving as you, the Pope, and too many Cardinals and members of the Catholic hierarchy have been, you are damaging the Church Christ gave us. For this you, and those culpable, should be “Fiercely Ashamed”.

Britain gave its country away. Should they offer themselves as slaves next to appease the cardinal?

Islamists should be appalled that their friends and relatives are gang raping women and murdering strangers.

It would be nice if when the Catholic leadership spoke, they would speak about actual Catholic doctrine and theology instead of politics.

At least two bishops who previously made LGBTQ-positive comments have been named to the list of clergy that Pope Francis will create as cardinals next month. Pope Francis announced the surprise October 5th consistory last weekend, according to the National Catholic Reporter. Among those named where Archbishop Matteo Zuppi of Bologna and Archbishop Jean-Claude Hollerich of Luxembourg who have both made LGBTQ-positive comments in the past. . .Luxembourg’s Archbishop Hollerich also serves as president of the European bishops’ conference. He addressed the topic of gay priests during the Vatican’s summit on clergy sexual abuse that occurred last February. The New York Times reported on his remarks: “‘[Hollerich] said on Saturday that some bishops kept returning to homosexuality as a cause for abuse because ‘some people have some models in their head and they will always keep to it.’ “He said he and other bishops had sought to change their minds. ” ‘I tell them the prime minister of my country is homosexual,’ he said. ‘And he would never abuse children.’ “: LGBTQ-Positive Clerics Among Pope Francis’ List to Create New Cardinals

Why has the church failed to ever mention or chastise the dismal countries from which these men are fleeing?

Ditto with Central America

I hereby declare that cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich has excommunicated himself from the Holy Roman Catholic Church.

He is no longer a cardinal, nor a bishop, nor a priest, nor even a lay member of the church.

What authority do I have to do that? The same authority that he has to say what he did about invasion by pigdog murder-muzzies.

Why are the third world parties and indviduals and globalist cabal from other countries that consustently orchestrate the importation of immigrants and refugees into countries, such as Europe and Sweden not ever get named. They are covered up and the world gets screwed. It seems we are impotent to stop it.

Hollerich was just elevated to the College of Cardinals by Bergoglio this past October 5, 2019.

That may help explain things.

“”The first to suffer the effects of climate change are the less fortunate people in third-world countries, the cardinal said, namely, those fleeing for Europe.””

I thought climate change was so bad, it wouldn’t matter where people went....Do these self important people ever preach to the powers that be that cause people to leave their own countries to drown in nearby seas? Of course not. It’s just the selfish people in OTHER COUNTRIES causing the problems. OK - got it...

Well, since Bergoglio is not the pope, and Hollerich is not a member of the Church, I would say that action is null and void.
