Cardinal Sarah, one of the most conservative Catholic bishops and a native of Africa, is criticizing the Left’s support of massive immigration into Europe. Fox News reports:
A top African cardinal of the Catholic Church branded mass migration a “new form of slavery” and said those who seek to use the Bible to promote migration are pushing a “false” interpretation of the scriptures.
“It is a false exegesis to use the Word of God to promote migration. God never wanted these rifts,” Cardinal Robert Sarah said in a new interview with French publication Valeurs Actuelles.
Sarah, who serves as the head of the Vatican’s liturgy office, is often named in traditionalist circles as their hope to one day succeed Pope Francis. He’s frequently made waves with his more conservative stances on liturgical practices, Islam, migration and other issues.
Those positions were on full display in the French article, in which Sarah, from Guinea, blasted priests and bishops who “say fuzzy things, vague, imprecise, to escape criticism, and they marry the stupid evolution of the world.” On Europe, Sarah said that the Church should not cooperate with the increasing acceptance by politicians of mass migration into the traditionally Christian continent.
Illegal immigration, whether in Europe or America, creates the same problems: cultural rifts and instability for natives, poverty and virtual slavery for the migrants. For the good of all involved, illegal immigration must be stopped.
