U.S. Cardinal Raymond Burke recently said in Rome during a pro-life and pro-family conference that limiting Islamic immigration into traditionally Christian countries is not only responsible but a form of patriotism. He pointed to what is happening in Europe as evidence that politicians should rethink the number of Muslim immigrants they bring into their countries.
Vatican Cardinal Robert Sarah warns that the “West will disappear” as a result of mass Muslim immigration, adding that “Islam will invade the world” and “completely change culture, anthropology, and moral vision.”
Summit News Sarah’s new book, Evening Draws Near and the Day is Nearly Over, is causing controversy in Europe because it explicitly identifies Muslim immigration as a harbinger of the continent’s collapse.
“If the West continues in this fatal way, there is a great risk that, due to a lack of birth, it will disappear, invaded by foreigners, just as Rome has been invaded by barbarians,” said Sarah, adding, “My native country is predominantly Muslim. I think I know what reality I’m talking about.”
The Cardinal also blamed the European Union for its “desire to globalize the world, ridding it of nations with their distinctive characteristics,” labeling the move “sheer madness”.“The Brussels Commission thinks only about building a free market in the service of the great financial powers,” he continued. “The European Union no longer protects the peoples within it. It protects the banks.”
In recent interviews he has gone even further, noting that priests, bishops and cardinals within the Catholic Church have betrayed the teachings of Christ by pursuing political activism. Sarah’s comments put him at odds with the Pope, who has relentlessly promoted immigration from African and Middle Eastern Muslim countries into Europe.
According to the Cardinal, it is wrong to “use the word of God to promote migration,” and it is better “to help people flourish in their culture than to encourage them to come to Europe.”
