I support the spirit of what he did, however feel he should have taken refugees from the camps in Jordan, the Leb or even inside Syria proper.

Those queuing patiently, filling in forms for asylum must be asking, "Whats the point in applying legally when the illegals are given top priority."
The Popes actions will be manna for the people smugglers.
As I said, taking them from the legal applicants would have been more effective in achieving what he wishes (battling the smugglers)

Being reported now, that the Pope has taken six children and six adults with him back to the Vatican, after a visit to a detention centre in Lesbos.

Surely now, we must know the right way to react to the great humanitarian need of our fellow brothers and sisters.

When has the Catholic Church opened its doors to the homeless of Ireland to eliminate it in one night? And before you start saying they'll rob and so on, well, perhaps the Christian spirit of forgiveness should be evoked?

Jesus, 12 refugees. 12! Unbelievable how easily people are led.

Are we meant to understand this as the Vatican making a genuine effort in the refugee crisis, with these people just being the first of many, or as a symbol?

If it's the former, I applaud him.
If it's the latter then the criticisms made by other posters are absolutely correct. If you're doing something symbolic you should get the bloody symbolism right!

Francis..took 12 Syrians from three families – all of them Muslims – home with him to the Vatican on Saturday.
I would have liked to see the Pope take at least one Christian refugee in recognition of the fact that the ME and North Africa is being systematically cleansed of its Christian population.

It's an ignored tragedy.

I do take your point.

The international community need to flatten ISIS, and repatriate the Syrian refugees.
That solution is the only long term and sustainable solution.

That solution would kill three birds with one stone.
It would alleviate social tensions in Europe as a result of the refugee crisis, it would allow refugees to go back to the country of origin and it would consign to history forever the ISIS objective of creating a caliphate.
How is it that you think you can "flatten ISIS" and not kill tens of thousands of innocent people? ISIS doesn't stand in clumps on the open desert all by themselves waving flags and signs saying "Bomb us here".

A nice gesture from the Pope. The suffering in Syria is absolutely horrendous.

This gesture will cost Francis nothing - his mini-State and/or a Catholic charity will cover the costs.

The Pope is not a hero. The real heroes are Bashar's warriors fighting against the ISIS/FSA terrorist scum.

Did he get to hand pick them, or was it as Herr Angela insisted, whoever manages to slip into the Vatican?

With barrel bombs and sarin gas, known for their ability to discriminate between civilian and terrorist!

Before we start ...The Meaning of the number "13"


Pope Francis is deeply encoded with that Demonic Number “13”

Pope Francis was named after St Francis a 13th Century saint. :evil:

Pope Francis elected 13th March 2013 = 13 and 13

Add up this date of the Papal Enclave and you will get another "13" ( 1+3+0+3+2+0+1+3 = 13):evil:

Pope Francis was elected just 13 days after Benedict Resigns 13 :evil:

Pope Francis first appears at 6 min past 7 = 13 Italian time 13 :evil:

Pope Francis was 76 at time of the Papal election = 7+6 = 13 :evil:

13 days before Pope Francis set foot on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem he ordained 13 priests. :evil:

To conclude...those 12 refugees that he took in including himself = 13 :evil:

12 Syrian Muslim refugees welcome to the seat of Christianity. In tomorrow's news, 12 Syrian Christians, fleeing persecution in their homeland are welcomed as refugees at the seat of Islam, Mecca.


Naaah, just kidding. Non-Muslims aren't allowed near Mecca.

One child was quoted as saying "The Vatican? Ah no, I'll take may chances in the refugee camp if it's all the same"
