On Easter Sunday, Italians accuse Pope Francis of ‘hating Italy’ for wanting to reopen borders, not churches

Seems Pope Francis doesn’t miss an opportunity to push his radical progressive globalist agenda. Now, it seems, he’s gone so far that the people of Italy are lashing out.

Critics of the Progressive Pope are now accusing him of “hating Italy and Italians,” after it was revealed that Pope Francis wrote a warm-hearted letter of appreciation to a radical open-borders activist, letting him know that he’s always there for him.

Meanwhile, as Pope Francis used his Easter pulpit to call for the borders to be reopened, critics are furious that he didn’t have the same sentiments about churches.

Pope Francis is being accused of “detesting Italy, Italians and Catholics” after he penned a handwritten letter on Good Friday to one of Italy’s most notorious open-borders activists, assuring him, “I am always available to help.”

In his epistle to Luca Casarini, an ultra-left militant who is being investigated for aiding illegal immigration, the pontiff wrote: “I am close to you and your companions. Thanks for all you do.”

Casarini lost no time in bragging to the media. “Pope Bergoglio replied to my letter, he is one of ours,” he told La Repubblica.

Francis’ letters are being viewed as a papal intervention to compel the Italian government to lift the decree of April 7, closing seaports to ships not flying the Italian flag and refusing entry to illegal migrants in keeping with pandemic restrictions.


However, Italian media personality Antonio Socci blasted the pontiff’s interference: “Pope Bergoglio asks for the reopening, not of the churches but of ports for immigrants, and he does so by writing to Luca Casarini.”

Socci, well-known for his books on Fatima, Padre Pio and Karol Wojtyła, said he was “bewildered by a pope who detests Italy and Italians and detests Catholics.”

“God makes them [Francis and Casarini] and then couples them,” Socci tweeted, slamming the pontiff for being “happy with the closure of the churches.”

Others denounced the Holy Father, writing: “he doesn’t care about the safety of the Sicilians and the police and health workers. His heart is exclusively for Africa … But go there to be a missionary then!” [Church Militant]

Things are so bad, and so many Italians are so angry, that one angry Italian posted an article from journalist Horacio Verbitsky, that accuses Pope Francis of having “collaborated with the dictators.” It’s not a shock, really. We all know that Progressive Pope Francis hates walls (except for the one that protects him).
