I am reluctant to criticize the Pope, as I am not Christian, but what the Pope said in a visit to Poland is a very secular political demand that is blind to what is happening all over Western Europe, if not the world.
Pamela Geller's website Atlas Shrugs has an article where the Pope is reported to demand that Poland accept migrants from Muslim countries. http://pamelageller.com/2016/07/pope-demands-poland-open-borders-to-muslim-migrants.html/
Apparently the Pope thinks the Poles don't read newspapers or watch television or internet reports of atrocities done by Muslims in Paris, Nice, in Germany and even the recent beheading of a Catholic priest by a Muslim in Normandy.
Frankly, the Pope appears to be indifferent to the sufferings of Christians all across Europe as they are murdered and their daughters are raped. A large enough percentage of these so called migrants are, in fact, an invading army, something the Poles are quite familiar with in their history. Polish officials have noted that they engage in a better plan, namely aiding refugees in camps in Jordan, in a country that shares their culture, religion and climate.
I don't believe that the Pope is willing, for example, to house these Muslim migrants in Vatican City or Casa Gandolfo, the summer home of Popes. One commenter at Atlas Shrugs remarked that the Pope has not demanded that these migrants be housed in his home country of Argentina. Yes, why is that?
The Pope's actions seem to be, whether wittingly or unwittingly, an attempt to turn worshipers of Christ away from the Catholic Church for at least the length of the Pope's time in office, which would be for many young Catholics their entire formative (teen) years. I could delude myself by saying that the Pope is badly mistaken, but it is obvious that he knows the repercussions of what his remarks are, namely they are an advocacy of leftist Liberation Theology with only a passing reference to the teachings of his Faith.
We are indeed living in dangerous times where both secular and religious elites have convinced themselves that barbaric acts by an invading group are merely a minor inconvenience because they don't savage and lay waste to the properties and the lives of the elites themselves - yet.
Jesus told the parable of the Good Samaritan. Please note that the Samaritan did not take the robbery victim to his own home but rather put him up in an inn in Jewish territory.
Bergoglio should read his Bible more and blather about the New World Order less.
