Pope B16’s Border Protection Plan

Being a Texan, I hear “Border Talk” almost weekly in this state. Governor Rick Perry wants to throw so much money at the Texas/Mexico border, you’d think the fence was going to be gold plated and diamond encrusted.

And speaking of megalomania, the Pope raised a royal Ruby cradled scepter in the air to declare his own border protection plan, you know, for the entire country. And what is it?

Appealing on behalf of the world’s migrants, Pope Benedict XVI said Christians should put their faith into action and give priority attention to refugees and immigrants. The pope said St. Paul – a “missionary to migrants – should inspire Christians to show solidarity with the diverse world of today’s migrants, including the “victims of modern forms of slavery” and human trafficking.

Migrants have insurmountable hardships, yes. They come to this country looking for a better way of life, true. But, shouldn’t we place a priority on our own land and our own people, Il Papa? Because if we allow ourselves to go to hell, what good will those migrants have over here when we become the Children of the Corn?!

The Apostle Paul was a great example of loving people from all walks of life, but let’s not make the author of 2/3 of the New Testament the patron saint of tourism. You already have a cat for that gig, right?

OK, if this is your campaign now, just own it. Let’s take down all the walls around the Vatican, just in case a migrant wants to make a 1,000-year old basilica his home. Get rid of those Nancys in those striped, fluffy suits that look like gay Spanish conquistadors. And for Pete’s sake, turn over the keys to that Popemobile because a brother from Kuwait wants to take that hooptie out for a spin.

So, in other words, “Mr. Ratzinger, tear down that wall!” Maybe?
