Pope Francis Compares President Trump to King Herod – the Leader Who Slaughtered Babies

Pope Francis compares President Trump to King Herod - the King who murdered baby boys

Pope Francis shamelessly attacked President Trump this week, comparing him to King Herod – the leader who slaughtered all the baby boys in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago.

In the New Testament, the Massacre of the Innocents is an incident in the the Gospel of Matthew in which Herod the Great, king of Judea, orders the execution of all male children two years old and under.

On Thursday, the anti-Trump leader of the Catholic Church decided to compare King Herod to our current Commander-in-chief.

What a disgusting thing to say.

Breaking Israel News reported: In a report published on Thursday, it was reported that while on a recent visit to Buddhists in Thailand, Pope Francis addressed the issue of refugees, comparing the policy of building walls and detention centers to the acts of King Herod who killed Jesus.

La Civilta Cattolica reported on Thursday that while in Thailand, Pope Francis met a group of 48 Jesuits from Southeast Asia.  Pope Francis is unique in several respects; he is the first pope from the southern hemisphere and, most significantly, he is the first Jesuit to be appointed to the position.  The pope discussed the issue of refugees and immigrants with his fellow Jesuits.

“For the Jesuits our work with refugees has become a real “theological place.” That’s how I see it, a theological place. Pedro Arrupe right here in Thailand in his last speech reaffirmed the importance of this mission. Arrupe was a prophet to me: his ‘swan song’ was the foundation, right here in Bangkok, of the Jesuit Refugee Service. Then, during the flight to Rome from Thailand, he suffered a stroke.”

“The phenomenon of refugees has always existed, but today it is better known because of social differences, hunger, political tensions and especially war. For these reasons, migratory movements are intensifying. What is the answer the world gives? The policy of waste. Refugees are waste material. The Mediterranean has been turned into a cemetery. The notorious cruelty of some detention centers in Libya touches my heart. Here in Asia, we all know the problem of the Rohingya. I must admit that I am shocked by some of the narratives I hear in Europe about borders. Populism is gaining strength.”
