Well, it wouldn’t be a story, if the Pope didn’t butt-in and add his 2-progressive-cents.
This time Pope Francis is chiming in on where the U.S. embassy in Israel is located.
Pope Francis is taking sides and defending the groups attacking President Trump’s decision to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.
Not shocking, as the Pope seems to use anything to attack our America First President.

Pope Francis Wednesday defended the “status quo” of Jerusalem, hours ahead of an announcement by US President Donald Trump in which officials said he will recognise the disputed city as Israel’s capital.
“I cannot silence my deep concern over the situation that has emerged in recent days. At the same time, I appeal strongly for all to respect the city’s status quo, in accordance with the relevant UN resolutions,” the pope said in his weekly address.
The Argentine pontiff’s call came a day after he spoke by phone with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas, the Vatican said without elaborating.
“Jerusalem is a unique city, sacred for Jews, Christians and Muslims,” he said, adding that it was home to sites deemed holy by followers of the three major monotheistic faiths.
