Germany's Catholic Church calls for 'reduction' in refugees

The German Catholic Church called for a reduction in the influx of refugees arriving in Germany, saying the country cannot take in “all the world’s needy,” according to an interview published Saturday.
Germany has been struggling to cope with 1.1 million asylum seekers that arrived in 2015 and Berlin has not yet given an official estimate for how many it expects this year.
“As a church we say that we need a reduction in the number of refugees,” Cardinal Reinhard Marx, chairman of the German Bishops’ Conference, told the Passauer Neue Presse daily.

The world needs to stop looking at/for places for refugees and start looking at ways to eliminate the evil that has made them refugees. Make their homelands safe for them.

The Muslim countries need a reformation where they need to uniquivocably condemn terrorism. Unless they are united in confronting it, we will always have terrorists and Muslims will always be associated with it.


There is a theory among many I’m sure, that the refugees are being chased out intentionally to cause this upheaval, possibly.
