Religious Minorities in an intolerant Middle-East

Reader comment on item: Religious Minorities in an increasingly intolerant Middle East

Submitted by Lujack Skylark (United States), Mar 8, 2012 at 19:18

Its about time the pope spoke out against Moslem persecution of Catholics in the Middle-East. Western nations have already absorbed enough immigration from the Middle-East. These persecuted Catholics should be accepted by Roman Catholic nations in Latin America. The pope should support this plan to save his people. Why does he merely watch them die?

The problem with the Vatican? Its leaders blame the Israelis for the trouble in the Middle-East. The bishop of Jerusalem sides with the Palestinian terrorists. Does the pope ever blame Hamas for burning down Catholic churches in Gaza? What is the value of human life? Why does the Vatican play politics when Catholics in their eastern rite churches are being killed?

Watch Syria become the next bloodbath for Catholics. Just watch the pope do nothing. Why not plan ahead? The Roman Catholic church is the largest land owner south of the Rio Grande. Why not open these lands up to Roman Catholic immigrants?
