Perhaps Pope Francis is too secure behind the Vatican walls to understand the seriousness of the crisis. Or perhaps he is too much a socialist to see the huge social and economic upheaval that is happening that could spell the end of Europe as we know it.
But for whatever cause, Pope Francis, who to date has invited a total of three Muslim families to enter in to the Vatican for a visit, seems to think that the armies of Muslim migrants pouring into Western European countries are nothing to be concerned about. He is absolutely wrong, it is an economic and sociological disaster.
He also seems to not understand the huge cultural threat this represents, nor the danger of the situation to the citizens of Europe. He seems to think that ISIS and Islam can be separated, and Islamic refugees should therefore not be a cause for worry. He does not suggest a way to clearly distinguish one from he other.
It is no doubt pleasant to sit behind the Vatican walls in incredible opulence and security, postulating about the xenophobic, tight-fisted Europeans who are having second thoughts about opening up their countries to an endless stream of Muslim refugees. The hypocrisy is simply shocking.
