Pope extends compassion to dt
What would Jesus do? If dt paid him a visit, that is.
Probably the same thing Pope Francis did.
He was polite, even attempting a joke with Melanie Trump.
He spoke to dt privately--about health care, immigration, and the environment. He gave dt a copy of his encyclical on the importance of action against climate change.
He probably spoke about peace too--peace vs. war. As in "Was it right to sell $110 billion worth of armaments to Saudi Arabia? What do you think they will do with them? Will more lives be lost?"
Fortunately, Sen. Rand Paul will force a vote in the Senate to approve or disapprove that deal.
What did dt say afterward his meeting with the Pope? He marveled at the man in white robes: "He is something."
He didn't try to sell him arms, or a used car either.
What did the Pope say afterwards--or perhaps think?
"God forgive him--he knows not what he does."
