Great news. A religious leader with a global audience is pointing out that too many “refugees” are attempting to come to Europe. The bad news, it isn’t the Pope, who thinks that Europe hasn’t accepted enough “refugees”:
The Dalai Lama thinks Europe has let in “too many” refugees.
The Tibetan spiritual leader said that “we feel the misery” of each individual refugee and that humans have a “responsibility to help” — but that there are “too many” who have been accepted in Europe.
“Europe, for example Germany, cannot become an Arab country. Germany is Germany,” he laughed in an interview published Tuesday with Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper. “There are so many.”
The Dalai Lama said that “from a moral standpoint” he thinks refugees should “only be accommodated temporarily” — with the goal of them returning home to rebuild their countries.
Go here to read the rest. Wouldn’t it be nice if Catholics could think that the leaders of their Church cared about them as much as the Dalai Lama apparently does? Naw, that’s crazy talk!
