In this excellent piece, George Neumayr refers to the rupture of relations between the Vatican and al-Azhar that took place during the time of Pope Benedict. As I explained here, that rupture took place because Pope Benedict dared to speak out about the Muslim persecution of Christians. By contrast, Francis energetically defends Islam, and leaves the persecuted Christians twisting in the wind, so he is acceptable to al-Azhar.
The worst part about this is the fact that because this man is Pope, all too many Catholics, including some in positions of high authority, treat him as if he were a divine oracle, his every utterance to be revered, respected, studied, and followed. Because of the statement of Vatican II that religious submission of mind and will must be shown in a special way to the authentic magisterium of the Roman Pontiff, even when he is not speaking ex cathedra, and must be shown in such a way that his supreme magisterium is acknowledged with reverence, the judgments made by him are sincerely adhered to, according to his manifest mind and will, Catholic leaders and publications tend to think that they must adhere to anything the Pope says about anything.
This leads them into impossible positions. When Pope Benedict XVI appeared to criticize the aspects of Islam that incite and justify violence, they allowed for criticism of Islam. When Francis showed himself to be an Islamic apologist, they became Islamic apologists. All too many Catholic leaders and institutions, in other words, are more interested in being papists than in being truthful. They would rather show loyalty to the Pope, no matter how damaging his utterances, than stand for the truth on the own against the Pope.
He is fracturing the Church
That is part of the ImPopester’s job.
Destroy the Catholic Church and ready the sheep for shearing.
The title makes it appear as if all Catholics are islam boosters.

Robert Spencer wrote and he is a Catholic.
It’s a great article and the leaders of the Roman Catholic church are helping spread . They are bringing a horrible judgement on to themselves and the people around them.
Islam elevates everything the bible calls sin , the koran is the opposite of the bible and a judgement on nations that once knew the God of Abraham , Issac and Jacob.
Pinging the End Times ping list to the article
The Catholic Church has become one of Islams loudest boosters
It is troublesome and not just Frances. There was Koran kissing going on before by popes who seemed to want to reduce Christian faith to bare morality without particularity about what entity the morality is offered to.
That said there are saner viewpoints in Christendom today including that of many Crazy Evangelicals like me.
A protest model is going to be forced upon its members who do not want to be complicit with this. A mere human command and control model is failing.
Islam displays a dormant and active phase. The dormant is usually civilized.
[[Islam displays a dormant and active phase. The dormant is usually civilized.]]
It’s never civilized , it just hides and paves the way for sudden destruction. The “so called civilized “ ones you talk are just hardcore socialist that go along with the idolatry that is islam. It’s why the left loves them and invites them in to their own destruction where ever they go.
Just like Mussolini’s fiasco in Greece causing Germany to come to his rescue and thus fatally delay Hitler’s Operation Barbarossa invasion of Russia, so too the Nazi-Communist Internationale’s timetable was shot through the lungs by Trump’s electoral victory.
We are watching all the forces lined up for deployment under a presumed Hillary dictatorship- BLM, immigration terrorism, protests leading to civil war, the sanctuary city movement, a commie Pope, LGBTXYZ protests, MS13’s and other “gangs of color” conversion to a terrorist elements, more “Arab Spring” idiocy, the unleashing of George Soros, and finally, the oligarchy’s wet dream...WWIII, bombing technological progress back into a feudal war lord stone age; these and many more phased democracy disintegrators, have been turned into a confused insane self destructive melee that does nothing more than reveal the oligarchy’s assets, positions and rat lines.
This alone turns Trump into an historic savant regardless of any legislative legacy.
The pope, not the Catholic Church. This man is first a marxist, then a liberal, then a political activist, then a m*slim-loving self-loathing idiot. He claims to be Catholic, and is clearly not fit to be pope.

Europe is about to be sheared by their own stupidity of welcoming sudden destruction. They hate the Jews and they hate the bible and they hate real Christians, they are going to get the exact opposite and they are going to get what they wish on Israel by siding with the terrorist that plaque them.
God will use the tribulation they are bringing on themselves to bring out a remanent of people who will choose to follow the real Jesus . They will probably have to pay for it with their lives. Sudden destruction (terrorism ) is coming very soon. You can’t invite a culture that glorifies terror and not expect to get just that .

That God hating , Islam loving marxist pope was elected by a bunch of cardinals that think just like him that run the Roman Catholic church . BTW the article was written by Robert Spencer and he is a Roman Catholic.
The pope can not discern the difference between the “god” of islam and the “God” of the bible. It’s what happens when you don’t believe what is written in God’s word. Insist on twisting it to suit your agenda and teach others to stand against and he will turn you over to what you insist on.
The pope might be catholic but he dam sure isn’t a follower of Jesus Christ.
He is bringing destruction onto Europe in a big way and he is aiding it here too (to many leftist bishops and cardinals here too are behind bringing in muslims in huge numbers so they can collect money from the government to help settle them in ... I feel sorry for the people that go to their churches and support them because these muslims are going to thank them by going into their churches and killing them just like they do everywhere they have numbers .
We know the False Prophet and the One-World Religion are coming. And the Antichrist. I pointed out the gross error in the “official writings”. One friend went to a priest (of course) who gave him the ridiculous spin to make it all better. (also of course)
Nothing is going to stop it. It has been prophesied.
The world is well-prepared for the Antichrist and the OWR.
We are quite fortunate to have had two great popes who presented proper Catholicism for nearly 40 years. Anything less will be seen for its deficit.
[[Anything less will be seen for its deficit.]]
It’s not a deficit.
It’s a curse.
They are choosing to side with an antichrist religion that butchers Christians because the man they elected to lead them says to. They want to side with islam they are going to get it. Islam is the OPPOSITE of biblical Christianity .
It’s why you are suppose to follow Jesus and not men , it’s why you are suppose to read the bible and believe God’s word and the writings of a marxist that has an infatuation with a religion that elevates rape , theft and murder.
He is like the Pied Piper leading a trail of rats to their own destruction.
