On his trip to Malta, Pope Francis made sure there were no crucifies in sight on the papal podium because the presence of the Christian symbol might upset the illegal alien Muslim freeloaders who were there.
Free Republic (h/t Nita) Instead, recycled plastic bottles with red blobs were used to design the backdrop for the pope’s address to migrants at the John XXIII Peace Lab in Ħal-Far on Saturday, a voluntary organization run by leftist Franciscan friar Fr. Dionysius Mintoff.
“When you look deeper, you will see that the sea is made of recycled plastic bottles, because there is more plastic than fish in our sea. And the red blobs are life jackets — the lives of people lost at sea,” artistic director Carlo Schembri explained.
Schembri, who was commissioned to design the key backdrops for the papal visit to Malta, insisted he was being faithful to Francis’ primary reason for visiting the island — to defend illegal migrants and ecology.
“The podium will not be adorned with a crucifix, given that the majority of migrants are Muslim,” the Malta archdiocese noted, in an article published on its website, adding that “the pontiff’s visit is expected to draw attention to the brutal situation of Malta’s illegal alien Muslim community.”
The majority of the illegal immigrants trafficked to Malta on rickety boats leaving the Libyan coastline are not genuine refugees, but economic migrants — and are mainly Muslim young men aged between 18 and 28,” Dr. Philip Beattie, president of Pro Malta Christiana, told Church Militant.
“Saint Paul preached ‘Christ crucified — a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles’ when he brought the gospel to Malta. The Apostle boasted in the scandal of the Cross. Why is the pope ashamed of the Cross before Muslims, especially during Lent?” asked Beattie, an economist at the University of Malta.
Francis said nothing about the anti-family onslaught unleashed by the LGBTQ+ lobby and their socialist allies during his address to Malta’s president, George Vella. He also remained silent on Prime Minister Robert Abela’s threat to discuss the introduction of euthanasia and extend “full reproductive rights” and “genetic screening” for unborn babies in the Labour 2022 electoral manifesto. Vella and Abela are both Catholic.
The “gifts” Malta has received with illegal immigration are the exploitation of … African and Middle Eastern migrants as cheap labor on Malta’s construction sites and in garbage collection, whilst a considerable number are imprisoned for violent crimes committed against Maltese citizens — robbery and drug trafficking offenses, among others.
Dovetailing the issue of abortion with concern for migrants, the pontiff preached:
I am aware of the commitment of the Maltese people to embracing and protecting life. Already in the Acts of the Apostles, the people of this island were known for saving many lives. I encourage you to continue to defend life from its beginning to its natural end — but also to protect it at every moment from being cast aside and deprived of care and concern.
However, faithful Catholics lamented that the pope did not mention the words “Jesus,” “sin” or “repentance” during his address to the predominantly Catholic audience at the presidential palace.
In the list of the worst countries in which to be a Christian, ONLY ONE is not a Middle Eastern or African Muslim state.
