Pope Francis Calls on Egypt’s Catholics to Forgive Muslims who Terrorize, Persecute, Slaughter Them
Christians living in Muslim countries under Islamic law (sharia) are terrorized, oppressed and subjugated. In Egypt, the Christian community is under siege by devout Muslims. Slaughtering Christians in their churches, forced conversions, daily humiliations and harassment, and the pope says ….. forgive.
I am no Christian theologian, but this is not what Jesus had in mind when he said turn the other cheek. This pope is leading his flock to slaughter. Christianity has never forbidden self-defense or, in the case of the Christians of Egypt, prudent steps for self-protection in the face of a vastly more powerful foe. The Pope is counseling Egyptian Christians to adopt, under the guise of “forgiveness,” a passive and defenseless stance in the face of constant persecution. This will only hasten the total eradication of the Christian community in Egypt.
“The stadium has a capacity of 30,000, according to the Vatican, but appeared to be far from full on Saturday ….”
My comments: The Pope refuses to call Islam what it is: A False and Evil Religion. I so doing he is an Apostate.
