When I first started seeing headlines that claimed that Pope Francis said that “Muslim terrorism does not exist”, I thought that it couldn’t possibly be true. After all, who could possibly deny that Islamic radicals are engaged in terrorism?
Within the last 30 days, there have been 127 Islamic terror attacks in a total of 25 different countries. And in 2016 global terror attacks set an all-time record high and were up 25 percent from the year before. Unfortunately, there are many world leaders that are so politically correct and that are so married to the idea that Islam is good that they cannot admit to themselves that radical Islamic terror is being fueled by radical Islamic beliefs. And in the case of Pope Francis, he is exceedingly careful never to say anything negative about Islam because it would greatly hinder his efforts to bring all of the major religions of the planet closer together.
To say that “Muslim terrorism does not exist” is such an outrageous statement that I needed to get solid confirmation that Pope Francis actually said these exact words. And I got that confirmation from the official Vatican website…
The other is a reflection that I shared at our most recent World Meeting of Popular Movements, and I feel is important to say it again: no people is criminal and no religion is terrorist. 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. By confronting terror with love, we work for peace.
According to Pope Francis, if Islamic terrorists were simply given “equal opportunities” we could solve the problem of global terror once and for all.
What in the world is he thinking?
The truth is that some of the wealthiest nations on the entire planet such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar are funding and arming radical Islamic groups all over the globe.
And often the primary targets for radical Islamic terrorists are Christians and Christian churches. For example, just consider what just happened in Uganda…
Several weeks ago, we reported how Muslims attacked a Christian church during services in Uganda. They locked the Christians in the church and then attacked them, raping 15 women, kidnapping several and beating the rest. The story made international headlines.
Well in a recent story, the local news media in Uganda has tried to whitewash what happened, saying that it was a ‘mania’ that broke out after Christians praying for the return of an ‘unnamed prophet’ got mad when the supposed ‘prophet’ did not appear.
In the meantime, Christians in the area have continued to receive threats from the Muslims, and the local pastors are reporting seeing Muslims at night walking close to the church where the attack happened while brandishing weapons.
According to Pope Francis, if each of those Muslims was given a good job, a nice house, a Honda and a 401K plan they wouldn’t want to commit those types of attacks any longer.
And I bet that we are supposed to believe that Islam had nothing to do with the following attack in an undisclosed location in north Africa… (Click to Article)
