This. Is. Insane.
During a speech on Friday, Pope Francis told the world that “Muslim terrorism does not exist”!
Maybe he was trying to tell people that “not every Muslim” is a terrorist, but that’s not actually what he said…
“Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist…
No people is criminal or drug-trafficking or violent. The poor and the poorer peoples are accused of violence yet, without equal opportunities, the different forms of aggression and conflict will find a fertile terrain for growth and will eventually explode…
There are fundamentalist and violent individuals in all peoples and religions—and with intolerant generalizations they become stronger because they feed on hate and xenophobia.”
Islam, Christianity, and Judaism should never be mentioned in the same breath when speaking about violence. Both Christianity and Judaism condemn preemptive violence, but Islam defends the practice and even extolls the virtues of killing the infidel. Think about it. There are over a billion Christians on the planet but very few (maybe hundreds) are violent extremists Conversely, there are also over a billion Muslims on the planet and the number that supports violent extremism is in the MILLIONS (the number that actually carry out violent extremism is in the tens of thousands).
These religions are completely different.
Also in this insane speech – Pope Francis said that there was a “scientific consensus” about global warming and that it was very real and very dangerous.
“A very solid scientific consensus indicates that we are presently witnessing a disturbing warming of the climatic system….
what happens when we deny science and disregard the voice of Nature. Let us not fall into denial. Time is running out. Let us act. I ask you again—all of you, people of all backgrounds including native people, pastors, political leaders—to defend Creation.”
The time has come for Catholics across the planet to rise up and tell the Vatican that the Pope needs to be silent on politics and to focus more on faith.Tags: Pope Francis
