Lighten Up, Francis

Lord knows that I'm not a Trump fan, but Pope Francis is way out of bounds:

"Anyone, whoever he is, who only wants to build walls and not bridges is not a Christian," the pontiff told journalists during his return journey from a trip to Mexico in response to a question about Trump's anti-immigrant stance.

Ah, rendering unto God what is Caesar's, I see.

Sure, there was some papal qualifiers about "if Trump said that stuff," but really, this was out of the Pope's lane.

Liberals who normally like a high wall between church and state will no doubt applaud the pope's statement.

Say? How many migrants has the Vatican accepted lately?
