I don’t think Christ would choose someone who believes He, and His followers should be DEAD. He DIDN’T choose the non-believers or the Pharisees- he chose his disciples.
If you are ok with the living symbol of the Roman Catholic church humbling himself-not before his fellow believers but before a member of a death-cult that wants to erase Christianity from the planet- I am not.
Ask yourself how this will look in the Muslim world. Head of Christianity kneels before not just a Muslim, but a FEMALE Muslim and washes her feet! Feet touching you is one of the most disrespectful things to a Muslim.
I don’t like the image- and I think it will be played up to the detriment of Christianity. You don’t agree? Fine. Time will tell, but this Roman Catholic is appalled by the fact that so many fellow Christians are MORE upset by the Pope washing the feet of any woman than those of a member of an ENEMY RELIGION.
Lets try this again. Christ begins to wash these young women’s feet. Do you think he would interview them first? He comes upon this young girl. Does he ignore her? Skip her? What do you think?
Christ had the power to kill his enemies. He didn’t. He tried to teach them. And I highly doubt Christ would care how this looked to the Muslim world. He wasn’t interested in what others thought.
