Vatican Puts America in "Basket of Deplorables" over Trump U.N. Speech

Timothy Birdnow

The Vatican has now put us into the basket of deplorables. According to Breitbart:

"Speaking in New York at the 10th Conference for the entry into force of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, Archbishop Paul R. Gallagher, the Vatican’s Secretary for Relations with States, noted that the rising tensions over North Korea’s growing nuclear program "are of special urgency,” while sharply criticizing President Trump’s handling of the situation.

"The international community must respond by seeking to revive negotiations,” Gallagher said. "The threat or use of military force have no place in countering proliferation, and the threat or use of nuclear weapons in countering nuclear proliferation are deplorable.”

The Archbishop went on to say that building up a strong military—one or Mr. Trump’s stated priorities—is counterproductive and hearkens back to a Cold War mentality.

"We must put behind us the nuclear threats, fear, military superiority, ideology, and unilateralism that drive proliferation and modernization efforts and are so reminiscent of the logic of the Cold War,” Gallagher said, in evident reference to the American President"

End excerpt.

I guess we should all just be nice and go on a picnic together! Apparently Archbishop Gallagher missed it when North Korea first developed a bomb after intense negotiations and a serious agreement. Perhaps he missed it when they restarted their enrichment program despite a settlement in good faith. Maybe he was busy on the day North Korea conducted nuclear tests, or tested rockets that serve only one purpose - the delivery of weapons to attack other countries. I guess he failed to notice the missiles going over Japan.

The man and his boss canThernot be such fools.

They say the U.S. Constitution is not a suicide pact, and I would argue neither is Christianity. Jesus does not want us to lay ourselves bare before tyrants and butchers; if He did there would be no tyrants and butchers. Turning the other cheek is a polemic about personal behavior, not a guide to international relations. It has always been understood that there is such a thing as just war, and that sometimes a nation must go to war to protect itself. In this case America is threatening to go to war to protect other nations as well. That is why the State is given the power of the sword...

Pope Francis and his social justice buddies seem to think that Barney the Dinosaur is the real Messiah.

Meanwhile Il Papa is chumming it up with financiers of international terrorism. He is of the ilk that refused to fight Islam prior to Pope Urban II, you know, the ones who let two thirds of the civilized world fall to the rapist hands of the Islamic horde before anyone could bestir themselves to take a stand.

1 So... this Gallagher character will be in line for the position the next time the U.N. SecGen job opens up, right? He obviously has lots and lots of foreign policy experience. Probably hangs out with dudes like J.F. Kerry.
