Pope Francis Voices against Discrimination of Migrants

  • Pope Francis on Friday night during an event called “Via Crucis” (Way of the Cross) at Roman Catholic Church’s World Youth Day in Panama voiced against discrimination of migrants and stereotyping all of them as threats to the society. He said, “We want to be a church that fosters a culture that welcomes, protects, promotes and integrates; that does not stigmatize, much less indulge in a senseless and irresponsible condemnation of every immigrant as a threat to society.” During his travel from Rome, Pope Francis told media that hostility is being carried out on the immigrants on the basis of irrational fears.
