Pope criticizes Trump's wall...

Forgets that the Vatican is surrounded by a massive wall and has very limited immigration.

The first 39-foot wall around the Vatican and its immediate vicinity was finished in 852, following a raid by Muslim pirates who damaged the city. That wall helped to protect Pope Gregory VII some 200 years later when the Holy Roman Emperor besieged Rome. Later, after Rome was violently sacked in 1527, Pope Paul III expanded the fortifications, and additional defenses continued to be built until the 1640s.

In more recent history, from 1870 until 1929, the walls served to literally wall off the pope from the outside world, as popes refused to leave the Vatican due to their denial to recognize the country of Italy. Even today, the wall provides a handy barrier that helps the Swiss Guard prevent unauthorized access to the Vatican.

The large physical wall around the Vatican is mirrored by the wall of a strict immigration policy. Despite having almost 800 residents, the Vatican only has about 450 citizens, with citizenship generally limited to resident cardinals, diplomats and a handful of resident employees and their families.’

The Pope criticizing a wall, before heading home to his walled city - a bit like al gore scolding people for driving SUV before hopping on his personal jet. libtards just don't get irony...

Something as evil as a wall cannot be left standing. Tear it down immediately! Begin importing all the Mexicans who want to leave their country, immediately! This cannot wait!

And how many Syrian refugees are now taking shelter in Vatican City? Probably zero. Typical religious type - knows what's good for everyone else, but NIMBY.

So they don't need it anymore is what I am reading here. The current elevation just serves to isolate the Pope from the rest of the world. Pope, de-elevate.
