We’re in weird place in the world when the following things are considered political – five things, (and) I’m gonna tick them off – these are the five things that were on (Pope Francis’s) and our President’s agenda: Caring for the marginalized and the poor – that’s now political. Advancing economic opportunity for all. Political? Serving as food stewards of the environment. Protecting religious minorities and promoting religious freedom globally. Welcoming and integrating immigrants globally – and that’s political .I mean, I don’t know what we expect to hear from an organization’s leader like the Pope of the Catholic Church other than protect those who need help; bring in refugees who have no place because of war, and violence, and terrorism. These seem like universal truths, that we should be good to others who have less than we do, that we should give shelter to those who don’t have it. I think these were teachings in the Bible of Jesus. They’re the words of the Pope. They’re the feelings of the President. And people who find themselves on the other side of that message should consult a mirror, it seems like, because I think that’s what we’re supposed to do.
