It’s not just the Islamic religion that is finding itself under attack by right-wing evangelicals anymore; now Pope Francis himself is getting quite a bit of heat after the Pope dared to call Trump unChristian for his divisive and hateful message. Rush Limbaugh had to come to the aid of his favorite wingnut and got the chance to bash the Pope at the same time.

“The Pope says that Donald Trump is not a Christian, because Christians do not build walls, they build bridges. Never mind that the Vatican is surrounded by a wall and we won’t even talk about who built that wall.”

For the record, this argument is incredibly ignorant as it ignores the metaphorical context of the pope’s comments while focusing instead on the literal interpretation.

“Given the pope’s political leanings I’m surprised he isn’t on the campaign trail for Bernie Sanders. But maybe Bernie Sanders is too far to the right for the pope.”
