|Bishop Ägidius Zsifkovics|
An Austrian bishop has rejected the government’s request to build a border fence on land owned by a parish in Moschendorf, a town of 400 along the Hungarian border.
Acknowledging the “difficult situation” surrounding migration, Bishop Ägidius Zsifkovics of Eisenstadt said that a border fence on Church property would be “contrary to the spirit of the Gospel and the clear message of Pope Francis.”
Bishop Zsifkovics also said that the proposed fence evoke painful memories of the Iron Curtain.
A couple of things, Bishop...
Can you name this famous city (also a country!), the one with a giant wall all around it to keep out the infidels?
And the Iron Curtain? Here's what Wikipedia says:
The Iron Curtain formed the imaginary boundary dividing Europe into two separate areas from the end of World War II in 1945 until the end of the Cold War in 1991.
So an actual wall is bad because it would remind people of an imaginary wall? Jeepers...
