Pope Francis’ order to Japan that they must take refugees from the third-world has prompted considerable backlash from Japanese people who do not want to see their culture destroyed by unwanted foreigners.
“In a special way, I ask you to extend the hand of friendship to those who come here, often after great sufferings, seeking refuge in your country,” Pope Francis said to an audience of 900 during his recent visit to Japan.
“Indeed, a small group of refugees is present with us here, and your kindness to them will show that they are not strangers. Not in the least, for you regard them as brothers and sisters,” he added.
A social media backlash began following his comments, with Japanese people being unwilling to accept the Pope’s platitudes about refugees.
“Do that first in the Vatican,” tweeted @Ryounagasugi7. The tweet was liked by 14,600 people and received 4,700 retweets.
“That wish we cannot accept. Impossible,” tweeted Kazuo Ishikawa, a former government official who now works in the public policy realm.
“There is little we can do as we don’t have a system to support them. Japanese people have only negative images of refugees. It would be impossible unless that is addressed,” tweeted @aign1218, a college student in Japan.
One Twitter user noted how accepting refugees has damaged the West, and how Japan shouldn’t export policies that are dooming Europe to their nation.
“I am sorry. We’ve seen how European countries have failed terribly. Even so, do you still say that? First of all, we are not a country where Christians are dominant. Would you please ask other ‘Christian countries’? Such as America, or America, or America,” tweeted @no_problem666.
A Japanese pro-refugee group begged Twitter to censor comments in order to mute criticism against refugee resettlement in Japan.
“Tweets that would inflame refugee-phobia, xenophobia are growing, @TwitterJP should deal with it as its own platform has been used to inflame xenophobia,” the pro-refugee Twitter account @freeushiku wrote.
Pope Francis isn’t just reviled by the Japanese. He is also despised within his own church. Catholic leaders demanded reprisal against the Pope for his blatant “heresy” earlier this year:
The resistance against Pope Francis, who has used his powerful position atop the Catholic Church to promote Marxism, is growing among his ranks.
Many of the top clergymen and scholars have signed a letter to Pope Francis accusing him of heresy and urge Bishops to “take the steps necessary to deal with the grave situation.”
“We take this measure as a last resort to respond to the accumulating harm caused by Pope Francis’s words and actions over several years, which have given rise to one of the worst crises in the history of the Catholic Church,” the signatories wrote.
“We limit ourselves to accusing him of heresy on occasions where he has publicly denied truths of the faith, and then consistently acted in a way that demonstrates that he disbelieves these truths that he has publicly denied,” the letter continued.
The letter was signed by some of the most influential Catholic minds in the world, including Fr. Aidan Nichols, a renowned theologian. The signatories wanted to make it clear that they did not take these measures lightly.
“We limit ourselves to accusing him of heresy on occasions where he has publicly denied truths of the faith, and then consistently acted in a way that demonstrates that he disbelieves these truths that he has publicly denied,” the authors wrote.
“We assert that this would be impossible, since it would be incompatible with the guidance given to the Church by the Holy Spirit,” they continued.
Pope Francis, who has helped to rehabilitate child abusers in his role as pontiff, clearly worships the false doctrine of globalism, not the gospel of Jesus Christ.
PURE EVIL: Churches Torched and Razed to the Ground During Anti-Government Riots in Chile
Another one of those “mostly peaceful protests” erupted over the weekend in Santiago, Chile, on the anniversary of last year’s protests—read: riots—against the Chilean government.
On Sunday demonstrators and criminals smashed up businesses, looted stores, attacked police, and even vandalized and burned two churches.
The riots happened one week prior to a referendum on a new constitution, of which the rioters are in favor. The current constitution was written during the autocratic rule of General Augusto Pinochet, with two-thirds of the Chilean electorate voting to adopt it back in 1980.

In addition to supporting a new constitution, the rioters claim to be dissatisfied with persisting economic inequality, inadequate health care, and insufficient pensions. This is despite, as the Wall Street Journal points out, economic growth and decreasing poverty over the years.

Some Chileans may have some legitimate grievances—I’m by no means an expert on the Chilean economy or political situation—but I will always side against the protesters when I see churches being desecrated and city blocks being destroyed. Far-left agitators are without a doubt behind these horrifying scenes. It’s too bad we no longer have General Pinochet around to deal with these Marxists the proper way.
