The big news story yesterday was Pope Francis and Donald Trump in a “war of words”.
After reading the background to the glaring headlines I must say, “Thank you Pope Frances for being a person to call a spade a spade!”
The headlines blared that Pope Francis said Donald Trump was not a Christian. However, the exact quote, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian”, never included his name, only the actions Mr. Trump said he would take if elected. “Admonish the sinner” is one of the spiritual works of mercy that ALL Christians are called to do. This is an act of love and mercy, not a condemnation. Mr. Trump should thank Pope Francis for the loving guidance he offered.
It saddens me deeply that so many Americans see the plans of Donald Trump as being good for America. Every Christian in this country should let Mr. Trump know that they do not believe he is ready to be the leader of a country.
