“Luxembourg’s progressive cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich echoed a Christmas appeal for migrants by Pope Francis, decrying the exploitation of migrants in Greece and the shameful inaction of Europeans to help. Speaking at the cathedral in Luxembourg City, Cardinal Hollerich chastised his fellow Europeans for not coming to the aid of those living in refugee camps on the Greek island of Lesbos, which he personally visited last May at the pope’s behest.”
Progressive leaders of all stripes, in the Catholic Church also, have failed to recognize that not all migrants in the world are the same, just as not all people are the same. This is the reason we teach our children to be careful about strangers and to “discriminate” between a murderer and law-abiding citizen. Progressives instead lump all migrants, refugees and immigrants in the same group. They willfully ignore evidence which includes jihad attacks, abuses against infidels and other threats to national security that arise from reckless immigration policies. In the meantime, the loudest pro-open door migration voices — especially the Pope — are themselves protected by barriers and security.
There is no ill-treatment of migrants that warrants Cardinal Hollerich’s castigation of Europeans and charge that they should be “fiercely ashamed” regarding their treatment of migrants. Hollerich himself should be fiercely ashamed for not prioritizing Christians who are suffering genocide at the hands of Islamic supremacists, along with other abused religious minorities. There is big moneyfor the Church in the migrant business — enough to encourage the neglect of the safety of the faithful.
“52 per cent of Britain’s three million Muslims think homosexuality should be illegal; 39 per cent think a woman should always obey her husband; 18 per cent sympathise with people who take part in violence against those who mock the Prophet; 4 per cent — that equates to about 100,000 Muslims — have ‘sympathy for people who take part in suicide bombing to fight injustice’. Oh, and if any of them knew someone was involved in supporting terrorism in Syria, just one in three would report it to the police.”
