"A merciful heart can share its bread with the hungry and welcome refugees and migrants" Pope Francis

What you meant to say was that my German and Polish are better than Crow's truly broken English

Nope, Crow's English might be simple but it's not broken unlike your Polish or German.

My Polish is probably on a par with Crow's English, but neither knows German as well as I or Jolly:-)

A mute point, as I'm clearly right in this instance!

As far as the clear split in opinion between what Francis preaches and the points of view I've read thus far, hard times are always the acid test for what unites strong faith vs. recurring fad.

The mean-spirited hypocrisy which supports "Jesus wasn't no creampuff!" and other bilge one hears throughout the broad country of the US, justifying bullying etc. instead of the really tough love of true compassion (even when it strains) is a sharp contrast between those who merely call themselves Christians and those who ARE Christians, and needn't go to Church every Sunday to prove it!!

Europe's center is indeed being challenged nowadays, more probably than at any other time in recent history, at least since WWII and immediately after. It is precisely in times such as these that the resolve and love of Pope Francis is relished as never before.

Dirty shame on those who justify attacks on Muslims (including those who errantly attack Christians Europe in the mistaken belief they are doing Allah's work), when Christianity itself has taught "Hate the sin but not the sinner!"

We Slavs should kindly, very kindly, ask heeds of Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant Churches to give us back Svetovid. Together, Christ and Svetovid. Only then we can expect it to work. Sure, money would go to Christ. Svetovid volunteer.

??? Come again?

To paraphrase: "We Slavs should expect that the Christian churches pay heed to our wishes and return........" (I think)

Am I getting warm?:-)

By the God, what`s wrong with wooden Svetovid`s statue in Christian Churches? That could be awesome. Christ Himself would rejoice with us. That would be real Christianity, truly tolerant. i can imagine and feel it. On the contrary to those who hunted our Slavic (ie Sarmatian) ancestors and Svetovid, in order to bring us and ``save`` us in true religion and cross. Those who promoted Christianity by violence actually disgraced Christianity.

We would be closer to nature with reactivated Svetovid. More humane, more aware of ourselves, more for our own civilization, capable to offer more to our children and humanity, etc.

We Slavs should kindly, very kindly, ask heeds of Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant Churches to give us back Svetovid.

here i wanted to say `heads`, not heeds. To put cross on myself how did it come to this mistake, i myself can`t tell. Must be stupid automatic correction

I've found a footage of a discussion with a Polish journalist which took place on German TV (in German, but decently subtitled in English):

Her views on Muslim immigration are representative of the views currently held by the vast majority of Poles in Poland. Actually, contrary to what she says, not even Catholic church in Poland, suggests now that we open our borders to the masses of Muslim refugees. The Polish bishops simply have a better grasp of local realities than Pope Francis does. They had a private conference with him during his recent visit, and judging by later comments of his spokesman, they must have made him see certain things in a different light. I do hope that His Holiness comes to terms with the sad fact that what's happening is really a religious war on the part of a considerable proportion of Muslims. Even if we don't mind to die as martyrs ourselves, we owe to our children to protect their future. We don't want to be like the Christians currently slaughtered in Syria, Iraq, Nigeria and many other places around the world.

There is another good film on youtube with the same lady journalist in a discussion with some Germans:

This time, the Germans are telling her that Poland must do whatever the eurocrats think is right. The blindness and arrogance of these people is mind-boggling. I hope and pray that Polish people finally wake up to the Soviet nature of eurocracy and firmly demand political devolution of this sick system. Otherwise, we should definitely follow the Brits.

Say one great THANKS BUT NO THANKS to all who suggest to Poland to accept more Muslim refugees, even if that may be Vatican itself or even more monstrous EU. Just sow on TV how Syrian migrant killed man with the sword in Germany, in Stuttgart, on the middle of the street. That morbid frau Merkel managed to destroy Germany. Did really perfect job.

PRIEST STABBED Horror in Belgium as Father is knifed after he 'allowed asylum seeker into his home to use shower'

He did I wouldn't, I am the son of a soldier of the Polish II corps, I always do unto others (enemies) before they do unto me.

His life and his attitude would have been different had he been married with kids. You (editorial) tend to do strange things when you are single and without any responsibilities. If I were related to God, anyone closer than six feet would die a very painful and spectacular death.

Technically and logically, having other options, Jesus committed suicide.

true very true, as they say he died for us, BUT for the likes of dolno and rich who have families !!! **** would have landed upon Their god forsaken a$$es even before they realized they had a problem with us.

While turning the other cheek isn't usually an option either in my opinion, Jesus' teachings represent all the best towards which
we all should strive, even if we never make it.
Most of us though aren't even close:-)

People, Pope was drank when spoke about refugees. Forgive Him. It was vine or something more volatile that spoke out of him.
