America gives out more green cards than they do each year (over one million). I
think we are more than doing our share, they talk about 15,000, we see ten times
that in the surges on our south border each year. Of course we could always stop
giving out green cards to people who are not refugees (no country in the
Americas carry that designation) and give them to these third world nations. But
only after we get a new President that will actually have background checks
He is asking European parishes to take on a family or two and doing it himself.
The Vatican is a independent nation within Italy. What is so remarkable is the
people fleeing aren't catholic. A parish taking them in wiudo give them an
immediate support system of a welcoming group of people. Far more important than
four walls, a roof and a week's groceries in the cabinet. These people have
been through so much.
This isn't rational as being a big step.It is good but get real
people.Catholics & LDS could work together to house those who suffer
& are homeless the world over.Put our minds & money to the best
way to do this.The pope has how many Catholic members who are in the
same needy position round the world.The same reason LDS don't
open doors to all the homeless here in SLC, UT.They fear the homeless from
all over would show up for a room.We aren't acting as civilized
human beings.We think we are doing pretty good.That is the lies of
self-deception caused by our sub-conscious mind protecting our personal mental
stability and other selfish factors.This is the truth of human
reality. We have an instinct problem blocking our moral choices &
actions.Pope Francis & Pres. Monson.are we humans being blinded
to the suffering of others by our instinct mechanism.Is our instinct
mechanism in reality Religious concept Satan?By telling the
LDSSaints & Catholic members this truth. we can do what is needed to end the
suffering of our fellow human beings.Satan is revealed operating
Maybe our church should do something like that.
What a refreshing breath of air this Pope has been. While I do not agree with
everything he says and stands for I have nothing but respect for him.
