Pope Francis criticized Donald Trump because of Trump’s promise to build a wall along the Mexican border. I don’t agree with what the pope said even though I’m no fan of Trump. But still, he is the pope, and The Donald’s response was just bizarre. He said ISIS is just dying to attack the Vatican (ironically that wall around the Vatican offers a great deal of protection) and that when they do the world is going to wish Donald Trump was president.

I wish the pope would stay out of politics, and that he would stop bashing capitalism. But Trump is a total hypocrite, and a liar too. But far be it from me to judge anyone’s Christianity.
