At the Vatican’s “summit on the migrant emergency” meeting in Italy, Pope Francis urged hundreds of children to fearlessly embrace refugees coming into their nation.
While speaking to approximately 400 school-age students in southern Italy, the pope reportedly took a tone that resembled propaganda when he assured the youth that they have nothing to fear from the refugees who have recently entered their nation.
“Migrants are not a danger — they are in danger,” Pope Francis insisted moments into his address, according to Breitbart.
Immediately after his assurance, the Catholic leader instructed the children attendees to repeat his chant.
“They are not a danger — they are in danger,” he belted out in anticipation of a repeated chorus by the youth present.
The children being addressed by the pope live in Italy’s Calabria region — an area to which a large number of migrants from sub-Sahar Africa have relocated.
