The Pope's propaganda seems to be similar. Anyone who has read up on Mohammed and the Koran knows that what he is saying is definitely not true, but those who haven't bothered to find out what Islam teaches might believe him.
The Pope is spreading propaganda about Islam and I find that disturbing. Priests in the Jesuit order are highly educated, so it's not like he doesn't know.
Education is not always a force for good. The Jesuits are the vanguard of the "social justice" academic crowd that steers its own course; their paths intersect with traditional Catholicism only when they find it convenient or beneficial to do so.
That’s my point. You are assuming that the Pope is not affected by the mental disorder called Liberalism. Once a person commits to the progressive cause, all other things become secondary. A liberal Catholic can say that Islam is peace and they can say it with a heart that believes it because they are ruled by their ideology.
I had a progressive pastor (United Methodist) a few years ago and he was a devout Christian, right up until Christianity disagreed with the progressive dogma. If there was a conflict, the progressive “truth” always came first.
Remember that, for a Progressive, all facts begin with the words, “I believe...”. Francis wants to believe that Islam is just Christianity in a different language, so that becomes his truth.
