Catholics and ISIS: Why Pope Francis Is Right
I must say, for once Pope Francis is right. It is time for us to make an examination of conscience and look at the violence within our ranks.
Who among us was not shocked at seeing Catholic Fundamentalists burn poor, defenceless Muslims by the dozen?
Where are we, when fundamentalist Catholics behead poor Muslims, and put videos of it on Youtube?
Why there is no condemnation every time fundamentalists Catholics jump on a truck and kill 80 innocent people, or attack people on a train with a machete shouting “Christ is great”, or blow themselves up in the air at a music festival?
Why there is never a march made by Catholics not against “all violence” (which is generic and too easy), but specifically against Catholic violence: the beheading, the burning, the mutilations, the beating to death with a metal Rosary, and all those horrible things Catholics do (as Pope Francis reminded us) and no one ever dares to criticise?
Eh? Eh? No?
Now, you might say that Muslims kill people, too. I open my newspaper and read of the one or other Muslim who has, say, killed his wife, or girlfriend. But this is different.
These are people who commit a crime and happen to be Muslims; still, Islam is nothing to do with their crime. They were not motivated by their being Muslims. They did not commit their crime because they are Muslims, or to promote Islam! Islam is the religion of peace!
Instead, when Catholics keep beheading Muslims and shout “Christ is great”, they obviously do this just because they are Catholics! How can we not be appalled at all those beheadings, burning, throwing homos from roofs, mutilations, and all that stuff committed by Catholics, in the name of Christianity, every day?
Do the Hindus commit such acts? The Buddhists? The Shintoists? The Jews? The Muslims??
It’s only, and always, the Christians!
Pope Francis is right. We must stop being such terrorists!
Perhaps we should all convert to Islam?
If we did, then we would live in peace….
