Pope decries low birth rates in Europe, says solution is to "assimilate resourceful migrants"

Pope Francis on Saturday decried low birth rates in Europe and urged more help for young people preparing their future path in society.

“A Europe that rediscovers itself as a community will surely be a source of development for herself and for the whole world,” the pope told (Re)Thinking Europe – a project sponsored by the European bishops’ conference (COMECE).

Europe is suffering, the pontiff said, from “a period of dramatic sterility. Not only because Europe has fewer children, and all too many were denied the right to be born, but also because there has been a failure to pass on the material and cultural tools that young people need to face the future.”

The Argentinian pontiff described the European Union as a tired “grandmother, no longer fertile and vibrant,” in a 2014 address to the European Parliament.

On Saturday, he said he found Europe to be “increasingly distinguished by a plurality of cultures and religions” but warned of the dangers of erecting “walls of indifference and fear” when it came to assimilating migrants who “are more a resource than a burden.”

For Francis, “leaders together share responsibility for promoting a Europe that is an inclusive community,” as it looks to meet challenges including the “imbalances caused by a soulless globalisation.”

Among the pope’s audience were European Commission vice-president Frans Timmermans and EU parliament chief Antonio Tajani.

They heard Pope Francis insist that Europe “is not a mass of statistics or institutions, but is made up of people ” who should not be “reduced to an abstract.”

So as a conclusion, the Pope criticizes the low birth rates in Europe as a territory but he has nothing to do with the NATIVE white Europeans who inhabited this territory for thousands of years. So in other words, he just wants more people in Europe but not necessarily white, that’s why he is teaching Europeans to ASSIMILATE migrants and view them as a resource.

    This is the most evil, pathetic pope the Catholic Church has ever put forth! He would sell his soul to Islam if asked nicely. The Church is filled with millions of wonderful people, but his Pope is straight from the bowels of Hell. And he wipes his butt like everyone else, not close to God at all.
