Pope Francis kicked off his second United States stop in New York City with a Thursday evening prayer at St. Patrick's Cathedral, one of the United States best-known churches. Thousands of people lined up along Fifth Avenue to greet him with cheers as he made his way in his open-sided popemobile to the center of one of the US largest Roman Catholic archdioceses.

    Support for the nuns was indeed a significant reparation and a definitive break away from Francisco's predecessor. The Pope again shows courage and well-balanced human values.

    Why were the nuns applauding? Do they not realise that they're next after the choirboys? You can see the thought process. Voice already high. No change there. Nuns are “brides of Christ”. Could have regular “honeymoons” any time he's in town. How could a “bride of Christ” object to the conjugal rights of hubby's Dad? Especially when hubby says it's okay. How fortunate that “papa” is the only one that can hear. I think it's called “anointing”. So much more politically correct than “shafting”.

    I wonder how many of those cheering actually understand that he's talking about taking their money, their homes, their jobs to give “migrants” a free ride. Recalling history, it seems that most “countries” can look back to times when they fought, and often died, to keep what they had achieved for their own benefit.

    It seems that Francis can't take that step away from argieland. Still wants something for nothing. How about putting over that you only get what you pay for?

    Are you an African or Asian migrant? Can you afford the £120,000 (minimum) you will need to pay to justify your use of UK facilities. Plus another £120,000 for the spouse. And children? £6,000 each every year after the age of 18.

    No freebies for migrants.
