Catholics may have a hard time voting for Donald Trump after the leader of the Church said the GOP candidate is “not Christian.”
“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian,” Pope Francis said Thursday, according to the Associated Press. “This is not in the Gospel.”
The Pope gave the comment in response to a reporter’s question during a news conference from the papal airliner, which was returning to Rome after a six-day trip to Mexico.
“No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man’s religion or faith,” he said. “[The Mexican government is] using the Pope as a pawn and they should be ashamed of themselves for doing so, especially when so many lives are involved and when illegal immigration is so rampant.”
