Pope Francis and Donald Trump rumble over immigration

Pope Francis standing in Mexico near the US border took aim at Donald Trump by stating “a person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not a Christian”. The Pope apparently decided to shed the shoes of Peter and step into the political mud which belongs to Caesar. Apparently the Pope never heard about the big door in the middle of the wall through which legal immigrants would be admitted to the US.
Donald shot back characteristically “For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful.” Trump concluded by saying”I am proud to be a Christian and as president I will not allow Christians to be consistently attacked and weakened.”
Pope Francis willingly lives behind high walls in the Vatican where refugees and migrants are not allowed to abundantly flow in to fill the Pontiff’s living quarters and yards. The Pope picked the wrong fight with the wrong person and may need to sit down and read the Gospels which state”judge not that ye be not judged” and “render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s”, meaning the Pope should stick to his knitting as standing in the shoes of Peter and clear out of American politics which is none of this business!
Actually the Pope was playing religious politics in a place where his Catholic followers in Mexico who have little respect for the American border to the north were amassed to receive the words of their religious leader from Rome who delivered the sermon that they came to hear!
