Vatican Bishop Athanasius Schneider has warned that the migrant crisis is “radically altering the Christian and national identity of the peoples of Europe.”
Bishop Schneider, a resident of the Vatican, made the bombshell revelation during an interview with Italian daily Il Giornale. According to Schneider, the migrant crisis is part of an organized campaign being rolled out to radically alter European culture.
Speaking to the newspaper last week, Bishop Schneider said:“The migrant crisis represents a plan orchestrated and prepared for a long time by international powers to radically alter the Christian and national identity of the peoples of Europe.”
According to Bishop Schneider, international powers are determined to erode Christian identity in Europe and the West. One of their key tactics involves flooding European countries with migrants in order to dilute the Christian base and radically change national culture and identity.
Pope Francis has been raising eyebrows for a long time over his continued support for globalist talking points. Last month the pontiff urged U.S. authorities to take in as many refugees as they can, and provided the examples of Germany and Sweden as models for the US to follow.
“Each country must do this with the virtue of government, which is prudence, and take in as many refugees as it can, as many as it can integrate, educate, give jobs to,” the Pope told reporters aboard his papal plane after a trip to Geneva, Switzerland.
These inflammatory statements are merely the latest in a lengthy series of disturbing announcements by the jesuit Pope and have renewed fears that he is the false prophet warned about in holy scripture and prophecy.
In July Pope Francis told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that the United States of America has “a distorted vision of the world.”
Bishop Schneider’s words were especially poignant given his background, having been born in the Soviet Union in 1961, the child of ethnic German Catholics whom Joseph Stalin sent to gulags after the Second World War.
Breitbart report: The criticisms leveled by Bishop Schneider echoed similar concerns voiced by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, who has also fought to retain the “Christian” identity of Europe as well as his country’s national sovereignty.
Orbán has called out left-wing billionaire George Soros for his scheme to flood Europe with millions of migrants in an attempt to blur national borders, saying that the European Union is following “Soros migrant plans” with its forced immigration quotas.
The Hungarian prime minister said in 2017 that Soros and the EU seek to bring in the one million migrants annually to create an EU immigration force to undermine the national sovereignty of member states.
In 2016, Orbán used another analogy adopted by Schneider, urging Europeans to stand up against the “Sovietization” of Europe at an event commemorating the anti-communist uprising of 1956.
