TRANSCRIPT

Yet again, Pope Francis is voicing opposition to building walls. The successor of Peter used the COP26 climate conference, which launched in Scotland Sunday, to preach the leftist talking point. In tonight's In-Depth Report, Church Militant's Hunter Bradford details the pope's most recent comments on immigration.

Despite himself living behind enormous, protective walls, Pope Francis is repeating his distaste for other people having them.

Pope Francis: "The most important lesson we can take from these crises is our need to build together so that there will no longer any borders, barriers or political walls for us to hide behind."

Francis has communicated this point before. The vicar of Christ made an all-too-similar statement in 2016 when he called out Donald Trump for efforts to protect the U.S. border.

Pope Francis: "A person that only thinks to rebuild walls, wherever they may be, instead of building bridges is not Christian."

Critics argue the pope should put his money where his mouth is and tear down the Vatican's walls to build bridges in their place.

Trump responded to the pope with an argument many Americans have made. 

Donald Trump: "If and when the Vatican is attacked by ISIS, I can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that Donald Trump would have been president."

Faithful Catholics believe border walls are not the only cause of worry with Pope Francis. Despite never having dialogue with Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò, the bishop of Rome has made time to meet with professional basketball players of the NBA.

Back on Oct. 4, the pope "met with religious leaders and scientists to sign a joint appeal" focused on caring for so-called "mother earth." The appeal, which Francis signed, hints at coming globalist change: "Humanity must rethink its perspectives and values, rejecting consumerism and the pervasive throwaway culture and embrace a culture of care and cooperation."

Pope Francis recently met up with unelected president and fake Catholic, Joe Biden. They glossed over Biden's disregard for Catholic morals but did discuss alcohol.

President Joe Biden: "You have to buy the drinks. I'm the only Irishman you've ever met who's never had a drink."

In 2018 Francis signed a document that stated, "The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God." Pope Francis does and says a lot of unexpected, controversial things. His opposition to border walls isn't a stand-alone issue.

The 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Scotland, also known as COP26, will conclude on Friday, Nov. 12.
