Pope Francis Compares President Trump To Baby-Killing King Herod

Pope Francis Compares President Trump To Baby-Killing King Herod


Do you know your Bible?

Even if you’re not a Bible scholar, you probably know of King Herod.

And my guess is you know he wasn’t a great guy.

No, in fact, he ordered the slaughter of thousands of baby boys near the time of Jesus’ birth.

Bad dude.  

Basically Pharoah 2.0 if you remember that story.  Same thing happened.

But for some reason I can’t quite figure out, Pope Francis swerved way out of his lane to compare President Trump to King Herod.

HUH?

Hey Pope, here’s a suggestion.  

King Herod killed babies….who else kills babies? 

Who else celebrates and revels in killing babies?

Oh yeah, that would be the DEMOCRATS! 

Next time you want to make a comparision like that, keep President Trump’s name OUT your mouth and substitute someone like Nancy Pelosi or Michael Bloomberg instead.

Got it?

Look:

Here's the source text from Laciviltacattolica.com:

The phenomenon of refugees has always existed, but today it is better known because of social differences, hunger, political tensions and especially war. For these reasons, migratory movements are intensifying. What is the answer the world gives? The policy of waste. Refugees are waste material. The Mediterranean has been turned into a cemetery. The notorious cruelty of some detention centers in Libya touches my heart. Here in Asia we all know the problem of the Rohingya. I must admit that I am shocked by some of the narratives I hear in Europe about borders. Populism is gaining strength. In other parts there are walls that even separate children from parents. Herod comes to mind. Yet for drugs, there’s no wall to keep them out.

And more from Breitbart:

Pope Francis has compared U.S. President Donald Trump to the murderous King Herod who massacred innocent children in ancient Palestine while trying to kill the baby Jesus, a Jesuit journal revealed Thursday.

Speaking with his brother Jesuits during his recent visit to Thailand, the Argentinian pope minced no words in his thinly veiled condemnation of the U.S. president and his administration, suggesting that like a modern-day Herod, Mr. Trump separates families at the border while allowing drugs to freely flow into the country.

“In other parts there are walls that even separate children from parents. Herod comes to mind,” Francis said. “Yet for drugs, there’s no wall to keep them out.”

“The phenomenon of migration is compounded by war, hunger and a ‘defensive mindset,’ which makes us in a state of fear believe that you can defend yourself only by strengthening borders. At the same time, there is exploitation.”

In this Q&A session, the pontiff also proposed that the rise of populism is at the root of migrants’ problems in Europe.

“I must admit that I am shocked by some of the narratives I hear in Europe about borders,” the pope said. “Populism is gaining strength.”

“The phenomenon of refugees has always existed, but today it is better known because of social differences, hunger, political tensions and especially war. For these reasons, migratory movements are intensifying,” he said.

“What is the answer the world gives? The policy of waste,” he continued. “Refugees are waste material. The Mediterranean has been turned into a cemetery. The notorious cruelty of some detention centers in Libya touches my heart.”

“The Christian tradition has a rich evangelical experience in dealing with the problem of refugees. We also remember the importance of welcoming the foreigner as the Old Testament teaches us,” he said.
