Here’s the full piece for those who don’t want to visit a blog:

Before the conclave today in Rome, the Central Council of Muslims in Germany (ZMD) and the movement “We Are Church” for spoke in support of a cosmopolitan Pope. In an interview with the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung” the ZMD-chairman Ayman Mazyek said he wanted a cosmopolitan pope who would introduce spirituality and a renewal of faith in God. “That would be a support for all the believers in the world, for Catholics, in all cases.”

Christian Weisner, spokesman for “We Are Church” urged on the future Pope urgent reforms to inspire people to return to God. The Catholic Church must once again be a voice for justice, against poverty and exploitation. These new approaches are needed. He claimed that the new pope should neither stand close to Opus Dei nor the lay movement “Communion and Liberation”.

**We Are Church**

Go to Our Lady's Warriors>Dissent>Organizations

In other words, they are not a Catholic organization

We are Church

Hatched from Call to Action, they are a petition group pushing for radical changes in church teaching through political pressure ("referendums," lobbying and the like).

Hey, thanks for your input there Mohammedans.
In the spirit of sharing, I think all your imams should be lesbians.

“We Are Church” is a gang of liberal heretics.

I think this gives a good idea of how threatened the Muslim agenda is by Opus Dei and Communion and Liberation. They much prefer failed socialism and empty atheism to clear the path for their conquest.

And I think their religious leader should be a pedophile and animal lover, oh wait he already is.

How did the story jump to the “We Are Church” heretics; certainly those pro-anal-sex wierdos can’t have anything to do with the Muslims?

1 John Chapter 5

10 Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son. 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.

Muslims have an opinion on what they would like the next Pope to be huh?

Let me guess before reading. They want the next Pope to be Muslim. Right?

I’ll go read the article now.

If you watch ANY show on the History Channel about UFOs or Space Aliens, this “Professor” is always in them and attributes everything to Space Aliens.

I may have some problems with my church as it has been the last 20 years, but allowing the koranimals to define the changes she should make is not going to make me rejoin it.

I didn't leave the catholic church; it left me. This ain't helping.

Publius - I invite you back into the RC Church. Twenty years ago, the church was infested with liberalism disease, and that was the apex of the sexual abuses going on with some of the gay clergy. I do agree with you that it was a terrible time to be a Catholic, and it was so easy to turn one’s back on such behavior.

Today, the newer bishops have reformed the seminaries, and vocations sre up. The new priests are so devout and on fire with the love of Jesus, the Church, and the congregations they serve. If you came back, you would really notoce the difference. You may want to talk to some Catholics who are regular attendees, and get theor perspective about it. Some of the older priests are still liberals, while others are orthodox.

One thing that I find interesting is that often the younger priests are the firmest in their obdience to the commandments, the Pope, and the catechism of the church.

Now, if only the hierarchy would get some courage and excommunicate Pelosi, Durbin, Kerry, et al.

". . . and attributes everything to Space Aliens."

You got that right. The Egyptians couldn't possibly have figured out how to stack blocks on one another.

No human could have figured out how to dig a trench around some ancient monument in China. His major, killer, point, though, is that no mere human could have ever figured out how to make a straight line and then, intersect it with another straight line !!! Case closed, it's all aliens all the time.

huh? you mean an article where some nutters say "you should do this" means that they are "defining the changes"?? Would you also say that the MSM advising conservatives to accept gay marriage etc. is us "allowing gays to define ourselves"?

that's a ludicrous statement in your post
