Well, I guess Donald Trump will get a seat next to hell’s furnace someday. Hope he doesn’t pack long underwear when he departs for the next life.
God knows, you don’t diss the pope.
Trump just could get struck by lightning before the South Carolina primary.
Pope Francis assailed Trump’s views on U.S. immigration as “not Christian” on Thursday, prompting the billionaire businessman to assail the religious leader as “disgraceful” for questioning his faith.
Trump has vowed as president to build a wall between the United States and Mexico to keep out illegal immigrants. He also said he would deport millions of illegal immigrants.
In a freewheeling conversation on his flight home from a visit to Mexico, Francis told reporters: “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.”
Trump, who minces his words as often as he shaves his head, responded: “If and when the Vatican is attacked by the ISIS, which as everyone knows is ISIS’s ultimate trophy, I can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president. For a religious leader to question a person’s faith is disgraceful. The pope is a very political person. I think he doesn’t understand the problems our country has. I don’t think he understands the danger of the open border that we have with Mexico.”
Asked about being called a “political person”, Francis said: “Thank God he said I was a politician because Aristotle defined the human person as ‘animal politicus.’ So at least I am a human person.”
If I were Donald Trump, I would be showering with holy water for awhile.
