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….

Even ISIS is more honest than Francis:
Dear Sir: you wrote: “(…) 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!”.
You are fully wrong. Where you have LEARNT / STUDIED that Islam is a religion of peace?
1) Please, check this Islamic video:
(Norway 2013 – All Muslims Agree Murder Is Ok – Moderate Muslim Peace Conference)
2) I have translated from Spanish to English the following text (sorry… I did not find the original English version…)
Four Sermons on Antichrist / Cuatro Sermones sobre el Anticristo
Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman / Beato Cardenal John Henry Newman
English version (traslated from Spanish)
(…) “Third, another heresy rose of much more lasting consequences and larger; was twofold, two heads, one might say: Nestorianism and Eutiquism, apparently opposite to each other, but united around a common goal: to deny one way or another the reality of the Incarnation of Christ by grace, thus tending to destroy the faith of Christians, no less certainly, and even in a more insidious mode than the heresy of Arius. It spread through East and Egypt, corrupting and poisoning those churches that once, blimey!, had been the most flourishing, the first dwellings and the bastions of Revealed Truth. From this heresy, or at least through it, the impostor Mahomet arose, and composed his creed. Here we have, therefore, another particular shade of Antichrist. (…) “.
(…) “En tercer lugar, se levantó otra herejía de consecuencias mucho más perdurables y de mayor envergadura; era de un carácter doble, de dos cabezas, podría decirse: el Nestorianismo y el Eutiquismo, en apariencia opuestas una a la otra, pero unidas en torno a un fin común: negar de un modo u otro la realidad de la Encarnación de Cristo por la gracia, tendiendo así a destruir la fe de los cristianos, no menos ciertamente, e incluso de modo más insidioso que la herejía de Arrio. Se extendió a través de Oriente y Egipto, corrompiendo y envenenando aquellas Iglesias que en un tiempo ¡Ay!, habían sido las más florecientes, las primeras moradas y los baluartes de la Verdad Revelada. A partir de esta herejía, o por lo menos por medio de ella, surgió el impostor Mahoma, y compuso su credo. He aquí, por lo tanto, otra particular Sombra del Anticristo. (…)”.
You can’t be as stupid as you seem.
Therefore, the only explanation is that you haven’t even bothered to read the blog post.
Or else, you *are* as stupid as you seem.
Be it as it may, I have no patience with people with such desire to read their name in print that they don’t even take the time to read, or to think.
IP5 has an interesting post today…it seems ISIS has responded to Pope Francis interpretation of their religion:
You are right!
Accept please my apologies! You have to know that was my first contact with your blog.
I’m sick of reading heterodox stupidities. Thus, when I read “Islam is the religion of peace!”, I said to myself: “This is enough!”. I wrote what I wrote moved by passion, without reading your article.
Then, I told this to a friend, and he made me realized of my stupidity.
In Christ, CAR.
Because Breitbart is completely non-bias and honest. Right A Ferrara?
No media is completely non-biased.
