Pope Francis is not your ordinary pope. He has built himself a reputation as one who is dedicated to promoting the causes of social justice. He has also been a huge critic of Donald Trump.
Francis’ qualities has made many conservative far right Christians think of him as an evil being. But the truth of the matter is that the pope has been fighting for human rights and has made the inspiration emanating from his office extend beyond the boundaries of the Catholic Church.
Lately Francis has been Tweeting out against Trump’s authoritarian believes in a series of tweets.
It all started last Tuesday, he tweeted: “Let us pray for one another so that we may open our doors to the weak and poor.”
And last Wednesday, he tweeted: “The word of God helps us to open our eyes to welcome and love life, especially when it is weak and vulnerable.”
And his latest hit came on Saturday when he tweeted: “I invite you not to build walls but bridges, to conquer evil with good, offence with forgiveness, to live in peace with everyone.”
The Pope refers to Trump’s attempt to build a wall on the southern US border and rip families apart.
Indeed, the Trump administration has practiced the exact opposite of what the Pope is describing here. The White House’s budget proposal for the upcoming fiscal year strikes a number of programs that serve the poor of this nation.
