Raise Young to Respect Other Faiths, Pope Says in Message to Muslims
The Catholic Herald (UK) ^ | 8/2/13

Posted on 08/02/2013 8:05:08 PM PDT by marshmallow

Muslims and Christians must raise young people “to think and speak respectfully of other religions and their followers, and to avoid ridiculing or denigrating their convictions and practices”, Pope Francis has said.

In a personal message to the world’s Muslims to mark the end of Ramadan, the Pope said: “Turning to mutual respect in inter-religious relations, especially between Christians and Muslims, we are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values. Particular respect is due to religious leaders and to places of worship. How painful are attacks on one or other of these!

“It is clear that, when we show respect for the religion of our neighbours or when we offer them our good wishes on the occasion of a religious celebration, we simply seek to share their joy, without making reference to the content of their religious convictions.

“Regarding the education of Muslim and Christian youth, we have to bring up our young people to think and speak respectfully of other religions and their followers, and to avoid ridiculing or denigrating their convictions and practices.

“We all know that mutual respect is fundamental in any human relationship, especially among people who profess religious belief. In this way, sincere and lasting friendship can grow.”

The truth cannot coexist with a lie- if Jesus is the Truth and The way, and The Life (and He is) then we must preach the truth in love to those who aren’t “born-gain”, but must also tolerate and love fallen people (who haven’t been saved by the Blood of Jesus, yet) as we once were~!

The pope is partially wrong.

The Pope is a Holy man ,but he sounds terribly Naïve.

Islam is not interested in getting along with other religions.

“Can’t fault the man for trying, even though it will fall upon deaf ears.”

Can’t? Watch me!

This pope forgets what Muslims have done to all non-Muslims for over 1,400 years.

Don’t forget - they are still burning churches full of Christians inside that church.

Just Muslims being what they have always been.

It is time to accept that “mutual respect” is a fool’s dream, or a cowards whine. Islam IS serious about ruling the world and destroying all other faiths and governments.

The Pope can’t claim his whimping out on Islam’s crimes is of Divine derivation, as both Moses and Jesus were explicit regarding things such as murder, rape, torture, arson - in short, they both said God had forbidden such behavior.

Mohammed and his followers had a career of behavior God allegedly had forbidden.

How can this Pope ask that such a “religion” be respected?

Surely this Pope isn’t trying to make Islam acceptable to Catholics? Or is he?

He can’t really think they’re going to listen and take him seriously, can he?

Muslim’s opinion of other religions = the Crusades.

Has he forgotten that?

While I’m still a little skeptical about this pope, the article indicates that he was speeking to muslims at the end of ramadan (lower case on purpose).

I'm hoping what he means is that if someone follows a religion you don't believe in, don't behead him or car-bomb his place of worship for doing so.

God gave us a brain as well as a heart.

Using one and ignoring the other is foolish.

I was appalled by a former Pope kissing the koran.

I will not submit to the worship of a black rock in the desert or the ravings of a treacherous thief and murderer.

Jesus is the Way,period.

Those comments have to be great solace to the Christians being massacred by Muslims in Africa. Times sure have changed. Say what you like about the Medici and Borgia popes, but somehow they would have handled it differently.

we must preach the truth in love to those who aren’t “born-gain”,

We know that - it's the Great Commission and the reason we are here.

but must also tolerate and love fallen people (who haven’t been saved by the Blood of Jesus, yet) as we once were~!

Wrong I don't have to tolerate of anything/anyone. I'm not PC nor was JESUS. And I show my love by telling them the Truth and they love themselves enough to accept Jesus as their Savior. They were saved by His Blood as He died for all, they either don't know it or believe it because of 'religion' and they think they have to do something to gain it.

It's all about a relationship with The Father and their need for a Savior and then they are hungry for His Word as they want to know Jesus more and more because of His Grace and Mercy that He extends to us. No greater love has anyone known than His Love - IF they get to know Him. If they don't they are none of His.

The pope is partially wrong.

He's all wrong. And catholics can obey him and they will be wrong, also. He's setting them up for one world religion with his 'respect other faiths'. There is only one faith and that is the 'Faith of God' and that's not where he is coming from but one world religion and the anti-Christ.

Given Putin’s familiarity with Muslim terrorism in Russia, and the resurgence of the Russian Orthodox Church, wouldn’t it be the perfect Putin b*tch slapping of Obama if the Russians took action against the Koranimals attacking Christians?

They seem to know how to deal with Koranimals at sea.

Talking to Muslims is like trying to teach a baboon to write. It wastes your time, frustrates both you and the baboon, and eventually the baboon sticks the pencil into your eye and starts gnawing on your throat.

He created ALL in His image but many wanted their own image so they sought out ‘religion’ and made it their god. A flavor for every taste.

The others have a relationship with The Father because they want to know God and all about HIM and the imagine they represent. And through His Word they get to know Him more and more and never stop until they are face to face with Him and they will be. His Word is written on their hearts. His seal is on them.

Pre-Vatican Ii the Popes referred to Islam as “Demonic” as well as the condemnation of Freemasonry. Truth is supposed to be the object of the CC—and saving souls——not teaching kids to respect evil. It blurs truth—and destroy Reason——forcing chldren to “respect” evil....an occult which kills, treat women like cattle, and advocates lying to anyone who is not of their “faith”.

Since Vatican II-—the CC just blurs the Truth-—it is getting rather sickening. We should get an Abp. Fulton Sheen back, at least.....sickening to watch the collapse of Reason and Faith by wishy-washy statements that wreak of multiculturalism/ecumenicalism (Marxism)-—like the girl “altar” boys. Absolutely sickening...... Just going along to allow the destruction of sexual identity in children and eliminate Reason/Truth.

There is a war between Truth (God) and Lies (Marxism/islam/occultism (Satan/Man).......as Whittaker Chambers stated in 52-—he was SO correct.

"But Francis wanted to give his message a more personal touch as a sign of special attention to his Muslim brothers, so he signed it in person: “This year, the first of my Pontificate, I have decided to sign this traditional message myself and to send it to you, dear friends, as an expression of esteem and friendship for all Muslims, especially those who are religious leaders,” the Pope wrote."

Your Eminence how do you venerate a man who was a war monger,a murderer , a thief , a liar and a pedophile? A man who claimed to be a prophet of a God yet performed no miracles , healed no sick, made no blind see and resurrected no dead. Mohammed was a monster and Islam has as it's core values sexual perversion and violence. All due respect Holy Father but you're an idiot.
