How dare you accuse the headchoppers of murder! They are just poor oppressed misunderstood innocent people! And to prove it, they are going to riot in the streets and kill a few Christians chosen at random.
Take that for saying that the religion of peace kills innocent Christians!
What about the @2 million christians the Turks murdered mostly in horrible ways in Armenia and Turkey..
Many were not Roman Catholic true, but some were..
Must be a card carrying RCC to be a “Saint” obviously..
at least the carnage could be recognized..
Resigned not abdicated.

A person has to be Catholic to be canonized by the Catholic Church. Let the Armenian Church canonize (or acclaim) the Armenians victims of Turkish massacres. It’s up to them. I would not be surprised if they already have done that either.
For the Catholics murdered by the Turks, we’ll take care of our own: http://www.catholic-forum.com/saints/martyr04.htm
Russian Orthodox Church has canonized victims of islamic Terror so too should all Christians—Our brothers in the Coptic Church are being sent into martyrdom as we speak and the world does NOTING! Egyptian Christians are being burned alive and nailed to crosses. It is as if Nero was reincarnated by the Moslem Brotherhood to attempt to stamp out the Church of Christ. And we do NOTING but send aid to the oppressors. God will visit his judgement upon the USA for these acts—as a government and as we are a Republic, we the people will suffer. Pray for God’s mercy, for he will have no mercy for those who slay his people.

What religion are you???
What religion are you???
Why?... whats your point?..
Because the Church can’t conduct a canonization process for someone outside the Church.
Oh, here we go again. What does it matter - for the purposes of this thread - what his religion is?
Because the Church cant conduct a canonization process for someone outside the Church.
same question WHY?...
you seem to be in a loop... if not.. answer the question..
“same question WHY?...”
Because the canonization process cannot be used for non-Catholics.
“you seem to be in a loop... if not.. answer the question..”
I did. The Catholic Church cannot give sacraments to non-Catholics (except in very rare circumstances). The Catholic Church doesn’t beatify non-Catholics. The Catholic Church doesn’t canonize non-Catholics. Those things are for Catholics only. They aren’t open to non-Catholics. There is no process to canonize a non-Catholic and to even attempt it would make no sense because of what canonization is.
I believe the loop is your, hosepipe.
Nonetheless, I am encouraged by your first step toward the Catholic Church and your desire for The Church, to recognize saintly Christians.
The Glory to Jesus Christ.
