An African Catholic bishop is warning the west that it better figure out a way to put an end to illegal immigration or many western nations will cease to exist after being overrun.
Cardinal Robert Sarah, head of the Vatican’s liturgy office, made the comments n a new interview with French publication Valeurs Actuelles.
He said that he feels the Catholic Church should oppose mass immigration.
Sarah, from the African nation of Guinea, warned that Islam would “invade the wold” if western nations gave in.
“It is a false exegesis to use the Word of God to promote migration. God never wanted these rifts,” Cardinal Robert Sarah said, according to the Daily Mail.
“All migrants who arrive in Europe are penniless, without work, without dignity…This is what the Church wants?” he added.
Sarah went on to call it all a “new form of slavery.”
“The Church cannot cooperate with this new form of slavery that has become mass migration,” he said.
He also added that, “Islam will invade the world’ if migration is not controlled.”
“If the West continues in this fatal way, there is a great risk that, due to a lack of birth, it will disappear, invaded by foreigners, just as Rome has been invaded by barbarians,” Sarah said.
But his comments have put him at odds with Pope Francis who continues to push open borders.
Indeed, only last week Pope Francis was attacking nations that “raise barriers” to prevent immigrants from illegally entering their nations. He also blamed capitalism for the migrant crises across the world.
