Pope Francis has openly expressed his wish that Great Britain remain in the EU, much to the chagrin of many Britons who wish to cut their losses and escape the many downward trends that the EU has thrust upon them. Archbishop Paul Gallagher, a top Vatican diplomat, stated in a TV interview that the Pope believes Britain’s presence in the 28-nation consortium will help uplift and strengthen all of Europe, but that he respects any decision of the electorate.
Then after being questioned more thoroughly by the ITV reporter conducting the interview, Gallagher said in no uncertain terms that the Catholic Church’s stance is that Britain is “better in than out.” The Pope’s statement follows closely on the heels of globalist bankers Goldman Sachs who made a public statement just this week that they support Britain staying in the EU and they backed their statement with a huge contribution toward the campaign to remain in the EU.
A spokesman for the Leave.EU campaign expressed his disdain for the Pope’s views, implying that the Pope’s position was hypocritical. He said, “If being in the EU is so important to the strength of Europe what has Archbishop Gallagher to say to the 23 states that are not in the EU – including of course the Vatican City itself?
