What Pope Francis just did to appease Muslims will infuriate Catholics everywhere

68

Pope Francis seems to be doing everything in his power to disenfranchise conservative Catholics.

He continues to embrace the far-left agenda in his statements and decisions.

And what he just did to appease Muslims will infuriate Catholics everywhere.

Throughout the Middle East Muslim extremists are oppressing Christians, along with anybody who challenges their warped world-view.

And in their quest for a world-wide caliphate they are spreading across the globe, specifically targeting Europe and the United States.

Their global crusade has been highlighted by death and destruction, while the radical Left cheers them on.

Historically, the Catholic Church has stood up for Christians against this threat.

But now, the Vatican under Pope Francis’ control is doing the opposite.

The Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue recently encouraged Catholics to join the Islamic iftar ritual meal during Ramadan.

“For us, your Christian friends, it is a propitious time to further strengthen our relationships with you, by greeting you, meeting you on this occasion and, where possible, by sharing in an Iftar with you,” the statement read.

In an interview with Church Militant, Islamic scholar Robert Spencer spoke out against the statement.

“By participating in iftars, Christians are helping celebrate an imperative to conquer and subjugate them,” Spencer said. “Iftar is not just a meal. It is the breaking of the Ramadan fast every evening. Ramadan is a month devoted to intensifying one’s observance of Islam and growing more righteous.”

Spencer continued:

“In Islam, the most righteous deed of all is jihad, which most prominently involves warfare against and the subjugation of non-Muslims. A hadith has a Muslim asking Muhammad: ‘Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).’ Muhammad replied, ‘I do not find such a deed’ (Bukhari 4.52.44).”

This is not to say that everybody in the Vatican is on board with appeasing Islam to score points with the Left.

Cardinal Raymond Burke has consistently stood against the dangers of Islam.

In a recent statement, he stated that limiting Muslim immigration is “patriotic” during a pro-family Conference in Rome.

“To resist large-scale Muslim immigration in my judgment is to be responsible,” Cardinal Burke said.

Islam “believes itself to be destined to rule the world,” he continued. “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to see what has happened in Europe.”

But these voices seem to be drowned out by the growing leftist influence on the Catholic Church.

What do you think of the Vatican’s statement?

  2. This man needs to be removed from his office–he is teaching areas of untruths. It is sad–the cardinals really got this wrong

  3. islam is satanic. The Quran denies Jesus His identity as the Son of God. The goal of islam is total world control. ALL must serve Allah or die or be enslaved. This “pope” is truly insane and does not speak for God

  4. This man must be a big disappointment to the LORD. But wait he will pay for his misguideing and sins both here on earth and most definitely when he will face the LORD. He is leading us to worship false gods.

  5. JESUS IS LORD. HE SAID THAT THERE WOULD BE THOSE THAT SEEK TO KILL YOU “THINKING THEY DO GOD SERVICE”

  6. The COUP against Benedict is showing that THIS COMMUNIST ANTI-Christ is the BEST candidate for FALSE PROPHET to date!!!

  7. Preaching Blasphemy, Heresy, Denying The Words in the Bible, changing words in The Prayer Jesus taught us because he wasn’t “happy” with GOD’S WORDS, Believes he has more Power than God Himself should be enough for ALL people, NO MATTER WHAT THEIR CHOICE OF “RELIGION” should be the reason Catholics have been/ still are WALKING AWAY! He is a SATANIC PEDOPHILE. Affair with the Queen of the Netherlands resulted in her Pregnancy with his SON. The Son he CHOSE to MURDER AND SACRIFICED HIM TO SATAN. Have you ever heard about the 9th Circle on the same grounds of the Vatican which is one of the places where Innocent Children are sacrificed to Satan.

    The only positive thing I can say is THANK YOU, GOD because this is the THIRD TIME, he has actually been ‘ARRESTED. The two previous times he got away from Law enforcement in Rome. Not the Swiss Guards, but his BURLY BODYGUARDS BEAT the Police so badly, they had to be hospitalized. HE was pushed in a car and got away. Same thing the second time. The last time was when 100 people in the Vatican were arrested. HE was ONE of THEM. 60 Priests were EXECUTED. I learned yesterday that 20 more Priests committed SUICIDE! HE IS UNDER LOCK AND KEY awaiting whatever comes and CANNOT GET AWAY. When you “see” him celebrating anything, you are seeing HOLOGRAMS. Same Holograms as the “planes” that “supposedly’ hit the Twin Towers on 9/11. Power was STRIPPED of him a few years ago. He was told to RESIGN, but didn’t. At some point, he will “disappear” either due to being EXECUTED or some other method of doing away with the SATANIC SLAVE THAT HE IS. Believe it or not, SATANIC WORSHIPS, SACRIFICING OF CHILDREN HAS BEEN TAKING PLACE FOR years. HE AND RATZINGER BELONG TO SATAN.

  8. According to the Sharia law (the religion of peace???):

    • A woman cannot speak alone to a man who is not her husband or relative.
    • Meat to eat must come from animals that have been sacrificed to Allah – i.e., be “Halal.”
    • Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam.

  9. Ever since the Poop Fornacated Loser met with Oboom boom AKA Barry”the Satan” Satero,he’s got a warped mind and its got worse,let him be a ass kisser to those muslim thugs bcuz he’s digging his own grave

  10. Left this FAKE religion long time ago when the local priest was caught boogering my cousin. Tried to excommunicated my family because I wouldn’t stay silent.

  11. I have been a Catholic for 70 years. Pope Francis is not a Catholic he is wrong he is so liberal and not to be following.

  12. What do I think? I think the man has lost his marbles. You can’t make friends with evil and expect things to turn out just great. There are good Muslims and bad ones, the problem is, its hard to tell which is which, because the good ones are most likely afraid to say much, because of the bad ones. I know one thing, Satan is having a ball with those that think you can change the ways of evil, just by being its friend.

  13. I agree. Can’t wait to get rid of this horrible excuse for a Pope who is an out and out Communist. Everybody, DO NOT CONTRIBUTE ANY MONEY THAT ANY PART OF IT GOES TO THE VATICAN. They claim it is for the “foreign missions, yadda, yadda, yadda” Also do not give any monies to Catholic Charities until we can get rid of this cancer on the Catholic Church. I will contribute to my local church (but not the other requests they put in the weekly envelope, etc.) because I sit there and absorb the air conditioning, heat, lights, etc. Hurt them in the pocketbook. That is the only thing they understand. Amen

  14. Raised a Catholic I was taught that the Pope was GOD’S voice to the Catholics….if that is even near true…….This Pope is a Fraud. plain and simple, A Fraud and as such does not deserve our belief in his words at all.

  15. I have always asked myself why The good number of Conservative Cardinals/Archbishops/Bishops/Priests stay quiet against THIS MUDSLUM ASS KISSER?
    This Communist, Dictator and Creepy Pope?

  16. Let all Muslims return to Mecca and stay there! They are not needed or wanted anywhere else in this world!

  17. As a Muslim, a few things, which I will address, as I recall what I’ve read.

    First and foremost, I appreciate Pope Francis’ suggestion that Catholics share Iftar meals with us, though that is highly unlikely, per CV-19. It’s a good gesture in the way of respect among believers in the One God. If any non-Muslim so chooses to do so, they are not in any way, contributing to their demise or being conquered by Muslims.

    Jihad means struggle, and according to the prophet Muhammad (prayers and peace be upon him), the greatest jihad, is struggle over self. We are not to be the aggressor, NEVER.

    The punishment for adultery. Stoning is nowhere to be found in Allah’s Book, the Qur’an. It is however, in the bible, as is the allowance of a father, to sell his daughters into slavery (thought I would mention that). Even in societies where the [barbaric] practice of stoning occurs, it is NOT exclusively the females. Besides, one needs 4 witnesses to prove this; VERY difficult to do.

    Polygny is in the bible, accepted with no limit to how many wives a man can have. The quranic limit is 4, although, the prophet Muhammad (ppbuh) was allowed more, eleven.

    In Islam and the Torah and Gospel faiths, the man is the head of the family, the provider, which is why, the male inherits what he does.

    Halal meat. The standards set in the Qur’an, are not much different, in terms of the “pronouncement”, than what’s in the Torah. By the way, we are allowed to eat the meat of Christians and Jews, as long as it isn’t swine, killed in a fight, fallen to death, etc.

    I don’t know where this NONSENSE, regarding Taqiyyah, comes from, but it is not and exhortation to lie, for lying sake. The Qur’an tells us to tell the truth, even if it’s against yourself. However, times of pending danger, you can lie, if it’s perceived that it will save life. If a mob of unruly people, try to harm an innocent person, and I’m able to provide safe haven, you think I’m going to tell that mob, “he’s hiding in my basement”?

    So.much more to discuss, and Ramadan Mubarak (Blessed Ramadan) to you all.

  18. Islam is not a religion of peace. It’s a religion of submission. Everything that the Quran teaches blasphemes the Jewish-Christian concept that God is loving and forgiving, yet he is just in his sentence. Please let us stand against this religion and show them that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.

  19. Many have attempted to “appease” Muslims during the past fourteen centuries. None has been successful. and there’s a very good reason why none ever will be.

  20. The man is either a fool or evil. Churchill was correct about islam ans muslims and we all know the proper “treatment” for rabid canines.

  21. Is this pope crazy, with all the disgusting laws that are in the Muslim religion. Why should the Catholics join them in their Ramadan. My catholic beliefs are having a hard time being justified with the actions of this
    pope who seems to be going off the deep end. He is the anti pope going by his past actions. His beliefs seem to be going towards the Islam way of believing. He won’t have any Catholics standing by the religion they were taught if this guy continues down his path of corrupting our religion. He gives all the money away to these different groups who treat our religion with disgust. No more money from me going to the Vatican.

  22. Two things the Vatican must do: (1) announce to the entire world that they are cleansing their ranks of pedophiles around the globe, and all will be turned over to local authorities for prosecution; (2) be willing to coexist peacefully with Islam, but only if Islam is peaceful. Stressing that Islam must police their own, as Christians do. Other wise continue to view Islam as a threat.

  23. Hatred mongers
    Jihad is to suppress evils lust ego etc
    Jihad lesser is to go into path of war when
    one is attacked, looted killings of innocents all over the world .
    AssalamuAlaikum
    I went to catholic school for 11 years

  24. The Pope is only stating his own opinions, which do NOT have to be obeyed by any Catholic. The only time statements have to be obeyed is when the Pope speaks “Ex Cathedra” (from the Chair of Peter) and solemnly proclaims something. The media seems to believe that ALL his statements are solemn ones.

  25. His wrinkled but needs to find a new parking spot or one needs to e found for him.

  26. The Pope is essentially saying to Muslims, “My religion is equal to yours,” while they are thinking, “My religion will conquer yours.” Francis is making a grave mistake, indeed, a deadly, heretical one.

  27. Conservatives demonize Islam as cruel and barbaric, forgetting Christianity’s own record of barbarism, whereas liberals merely see Islam as six hundred years behind the secular West. Think back to what Christianity was like six hundred years ago: the Crusades, the Inquisition, burning witches at the stake, etc. If Christians today are tolerant and civilized, it’s due to the past five hundred years of SECULAR social progress nearly all of which were resisted by previous generations of Christians:

    …democracy and representative government in place of monarchy and belief in the divine right of kings; the separation of church and state; the abolition of human slavery; the emancipation of women; birth control; the sexual revolution; LGBT rights…

    A hundred years ago, for example, ALL Christian churches opposed birth control. Sexual morality for Christians is detailed in I Corinthians 7. If Christians actually followed the biblical commands against fornication and sexual immorality in general (Romans 1:24-27; I Corinthians 5:1,9-12, 6:9-10,15,18; I Thessalonians 4:3-5; ); as well as the commands that women cover their heads while worshiping (I Corinthians 11:5-14); Christian women are to dress modestly and prudently, and are not to be adorned with braided hair, gold or pearls or expensive clothes (I Timothy 2:9); Christian women are to keep silent in the churches and Christian women are not allowed to teach nor hold authority over men (I Corinthians 14:34-35; I Timothy 2:11-15)… Christianity would resemble Islam!

  28. Pope Frances is a disgrace. I think someone needs to remind him that Muslims are killing Christians all over the world, from Africa to the far East. I have been a life-long Catholic, but no longer follow the Catholic Church. He had the nerve to try to lecture the U.S. about building walls to protect its sovereignty, from the comfort of the Vatican, which is protected by walls. Now he embraces the murderous Muslims without condemning their treatment of Christians. His disgraceful edicts are turning many Catholics away from the church, and if it doesn’t stop, we will be gone forever.

  29. I think the Pope has overstayed his welcome and perhaps is having a mental breakdown. to preach as tough we should follow the Quaran edicts………………………..

  30. POPE FRANCIS WAS A POOR CHOICE FROM THE BEGINNING. HE WAS ORDAINED A JESUIT. AND THEY ARE EXTREMELY LIBERAL. HOWEVER THIS IS A SUGGESTION AND MOST CATHOLICS WILL NOT FOLLOW OR ACCEPT HIS OPINION. HOPEFULLY SOMEONE IN THE VATICAN WILL REMIND FRANCIS HOW MUSLUMS EASILY KILL CHRISTIANS.. SHOW HIM THE PHOTOS OF THE 11OR12 THAT WERE BEHEADED WITH MACHETES.

  31. Pope Francis would do well to read the biography of the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus. Recorded by Mary de Jesus of Agreda in an 8 book work called”The Mystical City of God”, Mary claims in book 6 that Satan came up with the scheme to create Islam after the crucifixion where Jesus gained our salvation. Satan first started heresies like Arianism and Nestorian before the sect of Mohammed in the 7th century which denied the divinity of Christ, the Holy Trinity and the death on the cross. Islam is indeed from Satan and is supported by Francis.

  32. Vasu, God wins, you lose. You know nothing at all about who He is or His teachings. islam is satanic. Either you are with God or satan. There is no third choice. If you deny God, as you have, you belong to satan. You have the choice to be saved, but the Bible is just a bunch of words to you

  33. SMH….where did the Vatican dig this thing up??? It’s hard to believe they put someone in place who’s willing to set his own up for slaughter.

  34. the Pope really needs to retire. His many Leftist moves are not in keeping with Catholic or Christian doctrine. You don’t molly coddle Muslims, you ban them for all the atrocities the radical ones push all over the world. None of their primary dogma match the Christian way of life. They commit atrocities all over the world. CHina and Australia have it righ. Put them in concentration camps for “retraining”. The never assimilate into their new cultures as in all the Somalis in Minnesota.

  35. roman catholic cult has never changed in the last days they are showing there true colors
    mystery babylon the mother of harlots. rev 17. repent church they ahve always been false
    they murdered countlless bible believing christians who would not bow to the false mass
    and and false wafer that they think is jesus body, and there idolatry.covering up pedophile
    priests for centuries, 80 percent are sodomites.

  36. VASU, YOU SERIOUSLY NEED TO DO SOME EXTENSIVE RESEARCH ON WHAT THE EVIL CULT-TURE OF ISLAM IS ALL ABOUT AND THEIR HISTORY THROUGHOUT THE CENTURIES!!

  37. I I am Catholic & this is the first pope I truly dislike, bordering on hate. He is not for Catholics or christians. He might be the Anti Christ for all we know. I would hate to be him of all people in judgement day!

  38. ITS TRULY A SHAME THAT POPE BENEDICT EVERY RESIGNED!

    EVER RESIGNED RATHER!

    CAN’T SEEM TO TYPE ON THIS FRIDAY LOL!

  39. It appears that the faithful real Conservative Catholics have NO choice but to cut off this corrupt head of the Church Pope Francis and throw his leadership and authority in the garbage of satan’s hell fire. In its place the same faithful Catholics will restore honor to the position of Jesus Christ our King, Lord and Savior of our souls. Pope Francis is a very psychotic sick man determined to damn ALL souls of God’s precious flock to the Lake of Fire. Let this False Prophet of Hell go there with his apostate fools. The real believers of the Roman Catholic Church will march on in Truth with Jesus Christ to eternal life.

  40. People have lost faith in Catholic Church for the same reason they have lost faith in F.B.I. & C.I.A. and all other institutions .

  41. Catholicism is FALSE Christianity. If you study the New Testament you will see the Catholic church violates much of God’s Scripture.

  42. Benedict CHOSE to resign because INTERPOL put out a warrant for his arrest. Hiding in an old convent is called “sanctuary.” He is guilty of many things, i.e. knowingly covered up for Priests who are Pedophiles. He is another PEDOPHILE. Has anyone noticed that he constantly uses his fingers to demonstrate that he is also a SATANIST! He is NOT a Godly man. Don’t say it’s a shame that he resigned. Lightning struck the top of the Vatican TWICE that night. There are NO COINCIDENCES. There was a reason that happened.

  43. Seems as if this man (I refuse to call him Pope) works for Satan NOT for Christ or God.

  44. The “Sharia,” or Islamic Law has been condemned in the West as cruel and barbaric. The penalty for habitual thievery may be loss of a hand. The penalty for premarital sex may be a hundred lashes in public. The Islamic codes of justice, however, are similar to the civil and criminal laws found in Exodus 21-23.

    The Puritans of Massachusetts enacted America’s first law against gambling in 1638. In 1682, the Quakers in Pennsylvania passed their own law against gambling and “such like enticing, vain, and evil sports and games.” During the period from 1830 to 1860, lotteries were banned across America. By 1908, nearly every state in the nation had banned horse racing. Muslims were a virtually nonexistent minority in Protestant-dominated America when these laws when into effect. Nor did the Muslims coin the term “sin city” to refer to Las Vegas. The Muslims didn’t coin the term “demon rum” to refer to alcohol, nor were the Muslims responsible for the Prohibition of alcohol in the United States. Conservative Christians also take a dim view of alcohol.

    The early American feminist and vegetarian Elizabeth Cady Stanton similarly observed that “the Bible… does not exalt and dignify women.” Husbands are to rule over wives (Genesis 3:16), young girls are to be stoned (and not with marijuana, either!) for losing their virginity (Deuteronomy 22:20-21), women are subordinate to men (Ephesians 5:22-24), women must remain silent in the churches (I Corinthians 14:34-35), women are not allowed to teach or hold authority over men (I Timothy 2:11-14).

    Before casting the first stone at Islam, Christians would be wise to take a closer look at their own tradition.

  45. I had no idea he is so ignorant. He must live inside a cocoon and read nothing.
    Sad that the head of the World of Catholics is ignorant and possibly stupid

  46. George W. Bush quits drinking and drugs, and as governor of Texas, endorses the “True Love Waits” campaign of young Christian teens pledging to save themselves for marriage… and everyone thinks that’s wonderful! When non-Christians do these things, Christians react negatively, seeing it as “cultish,” etc.

  47. He’s a communist and liberal who also needs to separate his political views from church views.

  48. This pope is calling for the giving up of Sovereignty and joining the United Nations in a Global Government. He seems to be fitting the qualification for the false prophet of the Anti-Christ. He is in full support of the UN. How corrupt can he be. Time to see him GO.

  49. I don’t know what Il Papa is smoking but he sure as hell is in another world. Does he see how the mass immigration of Muslims has totally ruined most of Europe. I would like to tell him that we had a wonderful assistant priest a few years ago from Nigeria. The Muslim terrorists nailed the doors shut on a church with hundreds of people inside including many children. They then set fire to the building and shot anyone who tried to get away. He insisted on going back to be with his people and we have not been able to reach him since. The Religion of Peace is anything but and they need to be all sent to China for retraining.

  50. Muslim Catholic Jew whatever they are all religions they are all wrong they are made up by men with their rules there are no rules in faith just you and your GOD

  51. Tess at least talks with civility. Some of you would do well to be a little more careful of what you say and are suggesting! Your hatred and misguided rhetoric against the Catholic religion tells me you know nothing about it. Some of you are so toxic that it makes me wonder what YOU are being taught.
    May God forgive you along with Muslims!
