Rich how il Papa is ripping the idea of building a wall on the southern border but has no problem with the Vatican having a giant fucking wall and some of the most restrictive immigration policies on the planet. Hypocrite much?

That is simply untrue about the Vatican, my man.
“It isn’t all surrounded by walls, and it’s not like you need a separate visa or a passport to enter,” he said. “You wouldn’t know, almost, when you even entered Vatican City. There is a white line painted on the ground in St. Peter’s Square, but that kind of thing is not obvious everywhere.”

There are, to be sure, formidable walls in Vatican City, and much of of the site, including the gardens and the modest guesthouse that is home to Francis, is set behind them. But the walls do not entirely enclose the city-state, and in the modern era they are not meant to, historians said.

“Anybody can walk into St. Peter’s Square — that’s the whole point of it,” said Dr. Mannion. “It was designed to be welcoming and to draw people in like two open arms, to draw them into the heart of the church.”

When did you become a raging conservative anyways? You went from voting for Obama to popping off Trumpisms in a matter of a few years. lol

I hope all is well, buddy. :cool

You missed the point: It's not about visiting the place. It's the fact that the immigration policies are restrictive, 100% walled or not:

Washington Times reported:

The Vatican, for its part, welcomes millions of visitors a year — but allows only a very select few, who meet strict criteria, to be admitted as residents or citizens.Only about 450 of its 800 or so residents actually hold citizenship, according to a 2012 study by the Library of Congress. That study said citizens are either church cardinals who reside in the Vatican, the Holy See’s diplomats around the world, and those who have to reside in the city because of their jobs, such as the Swiss Guard. Spouses and children who live in the city because of their relationship with citizens — including the Swiss Guard and workers such as the gardener — can also be granted citizenship. But that means few of the Vatican’s citizens are women.

Yet the Pope wants the rest of the world to have open borders:

WASHINGTON -- Pope Francis urged compassion on Thursday for refugees and unauthorized immigrants, speaking to a crowd that included lawmakers who have said the U.S. should keep out Syrians and others who fled their countries, and should deport more of the undocumented immigrants who are already here.

During an address to the House of Representatives and the Senate, the pope said the solution to the refugee crisis is for other countries to follow the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." His mention of the Golden Rule earned a standing ovation.

"Our world is facing a refugee crisis of a magnitude not seen since the Second World War," he said. "This presents us with great challenges and many hard decisions. On this continent, too, thousands of persons are led to travel north in search of a better life for themselves and for their loved ones, in search of greater opportunities. Is this not what we want for our own children?"

What a coinkydink. I, too, have been digging that particular Austrian indie chick lately.





Relates: Who the hell wants to emigrate to the Vatican?

Elates: Don't Catholic priests have all sorts of unfortunate restrictions placed on their activities?

Lates: I don't think the pay is all that good. Spiritually, perhaps.

Ates: I'll bet the food there is really good. That might be a legitimate reason.
Goin' back to Houston, do the hot dog dance. Goin' back to Houston, to get me some pants.

The sheepshead fish has human teeth, but it's OK because it won't give you a psychedelic crisis.
