    Thrusting himself into the combative 2016 presidential campaign, Pope Francis said Thursday that GOP frontrunner Donald Trump "is not Christian" if he calls for the deportation of undocumented immigrants and pledges to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.

    "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not in the gospel," the Pope told journalists.

    Asked if American Catholics should vote for Trump, Francis demurred.

    "As far as what you said about whether I would advise to vote or not to vote, I am not going to get involved in that. I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that."

    When he takes in a few thousand immigrats to the Vatican them I will respect his opinion.
    Is it even possible to be a Catholic without being a complete hypocrite?

    And who lives in a country (The Vatican is essentially it's own country) with the highest immigration standards in the world. I understand it's only like 3/4 of a mile, but has the Pope brought in even 1 Mexican or Syrian into Vatican City.

    The Pope didn't look very Christian when he got mad at people in the crowd at one of his appearances recently.

    There was the wall of silence during WWII. The Vatican later apologized though for not being more agressive

    They will resurrect Mendela from the grave to give a speech against Trump next, or at least use one of those new hologram things.

    Yeah won't that help him? Catholics are up there with Jews and Blacks as least appreciated (if you will) around here.
