Pope Francis expressed "concern" about recent political rhetoric.  He cautioning against nationalism, saying that recent political speeches he’s heard “resemble those of Hitler in 1934.”

“I am concerned because we hear speeches that resemble those of Hitler in 1934. . . These are frightening thoughts.”

Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini asked President Sergio Mattarella to crack down on immigration.

Salvini said Italy's interests should be put first and that the country should crack down on immigration.

Pope Francis declared that no [country] is exempt from helping migrants, referring to the recent clashes between Italy's government and migrant rescue ships.

It's always so awkward whenever a Pope gets involved in political affairs.       He really doesn't know this?

I don't exactly trust the Vatican, or England for that matter; I think they want their empires back.

I think the Brits just want out of the EU, and the Pope just does what God tells him to, I think... That's what I heard anyway.

No matter, it wasn't the Church's empire, it was Rome's Empire, secured with the help of the Roman Catholic Church.

I don't think anybody wants to team up with the Roman Catholic Church to try to create an empire.
