Hey Red Pope, About those Vatican Walls...

Is it possible for a pope to be communist?  The premise, so I’m told, is communism doesn’t allow competing ideologies.  Communism in itself is a religion of sorts and part of its dogma is the disallowance of nation-states.

The Red Pope’s open borders policies is antithetical to nation-states.  Indeed, his economic policies are suspect as well.  There is something not right about this man.  Maybe it’s just the times in which we live when our leaders betray the interest of their citizens.  The United States has its Judas in Barack Obama; Europeans have Brussels and the Catholics have Pope Francis.

Here is the reason why the Vatican has a wall surrounding it.  Maybe the Red Pope should brush up on his history for it tends to repeat itself.

The pope’s sovereign city-state, Vatican City, is surrounded by giant walls.
What’s more, the walls were specifically built by a prior pope to repel Muslims.
History shows back in 846, Muslim raiders known as the Saracens looted Old St. Peter’s Basilica and the Papal Basilica of St. Paul outside the walls. The pirates took priceless treasures from the shrines.
Shocked by the sack of some of the most sacred sites in Christendom, Pope Leo IV created the Leonine Wall, completely surrounding the Vatican Hill. Additional defenses were added in the 15th and 16th centuries
