I’ve heard priests call it ‘that thing the Islamists refer to as a religion’
Perhaps the pope has not read the muslim’s book
... someone needs to look at the larger picture.
What “religion” offers its young testosterone laden boys 72 whores for killing for their “religion”? What religion has rules for splitting up the booty from raids?
Those are the primary reasons I say it is a mercenaries handbook.
The religion part is just a beard for their crimes against humanity which are typically genocidal in nature. Poor popie needs to redress the last 1400 years of historical performance. In it’s imperalistic expansion they have whacked millions upon millions of people, raiding their wealth and ideas in the process. They are raiders, not creators of ideas nor wealth.
The story allah-baba and the forty thousand thieves was a more correct portrayal of their identity.
Purely thieve warriors.
And the best predicator of the future is past performance.
They are not going to change.
Either book. It is not as if there were only one.
Westerners beeing genally too lazy and too generally half assed in their scholarship to study Islam does not obviate the Hadith.
