So the pope reckons that the story of the nativity can be likened to that of the millions of economic migrants streaming out of Africa and the East looking to exploit the naive generosity of Europe, especially the UK.
Well it’s a shame the silly old bugger doesn’t know his own holy book. I seem to remember that far from fleeing their homes for a better life, Mary & Joseph were returning to their home for a census.
The pope also reckons that faith demands that we respect and welcome migrants. It’s a shame then that the migrants refuse to respect Christian faith and that in the shit holes than some of these people come from they crucify infidels, behead them and burn them alive. Mind you, some of us recall tales of Bloody Mary and the Spanish inquisition, so I don’t think the catholics have much to boast about on that score.
And let’s remember that the Vatican is one of the richest organisations on the planet so I’d like to ask popey how many of these poor migrants they’ve housed? How much money have you given to help them in their own countries? I think we know the answer…
So on this Christmas morning, here’s my message to the pope : “Sod off you silly old bugger!”
