  • Islamic Expert: US Bishops Complicit in Muslim Persecution of Christians

    A prominent Islamic expert is comparing the bishops' silence on terrorism to sex abuse cover-up. Robert Spencer, an Islamic terror expert and author of 16 books on Islam, released an editorial Sunday excoriating the U.S. bishops' actions to punish clergy and schoolteachers who speak out against Islam, including Spencer himself.  "The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops moves actively and swiftly to silence and demonize voices that tell the truth about the Muslim persecution of Christians," Spencer noted, naming various bishops who've refused him, as well as other Muslim critics, a platform in their dioceses. The USCCB moves actively and swiftly to...

The Other Side of Francis’s Journey To Egypt > Italiano > English> Español> Français > All the articles of Settimo Cielo in English*One week after the visit of Pope Francis to Egypt, much has been said about what he did. But little about what happened on the other shore, that of Islam.What held sway here was the speech of the grand imam of Al-Azhar, the sheikh Ahmad Al-Tayyib, delivered in Arabic and presented in full in the official English version, on this other page: > "His Holiness Pope Francis of Vatican..."Unlike Francis, who in his speech...

    Islam—The View from Disney CountryWilliam Kilpatrick The Diocese of Orlando recently reprimanded a sixth grade teacher at a Catholic school for an “unfortunate exhibit of disrespect.” What did he do? He provided printouts to students of St. John Bosco’s negative assessment of Islam. St. John Bosco called Islam a “monstrous mixture of Judaism, Paganism, and Christianity,” and explained that Muhammad “propagated his religion, not through miracles or persuasive words, but by military force.”Citing Nostra Aetate, Jacquelyn Flanigan, an associate superintendent with the Diocese of Orlando’s schools, said that “the information provided in the sixth-grade class is not consistent with the...

Pope Francis must choose how he addresses the Muslim community when he visits Egypt this week. He has two models: Former U.S. President Barack Obama and former Pope Benedict XVI. When a newly-elected Obama decided to address the “Muslim world” from Cairo in 2009, he insisted that Islam is a “religion of peace,” corrupted by a small few, and that there is nothing particularly Islamic about the violence committed...

    Fatima Perspectives ^ | April 27, 2017 | Christopher A. Ferrara
    Let us face reality: Incredibly enough, the world’s foremost defender of Islam is not the Grand Mufti of wherever, but the current occupant of the Chair of Peter. George Neumayr summarizes this epochal embarrassment for the Church with his usual pungency: “As the prototypical progressive Jesuit, Pope Francis prides himself on his ‘ecumenism.’ He oozes enthusiasm for every religion except his own. At the top of his list of favorite religions is the Church’s fiercest adversary — Islam. He often sounds more like a spokesman for CAIR than a Catholic pope.” Now we are informed that the Pope will travel to...

    Past popes combated the errors of Muhammad. Francis praises them. As the prototypical progressive Jesuit, Pope Francis prides himself on his “ecumenism.” He oozes enthusiasm for every religion except his own. At the top of his list of favorite religions is the Church’s fiercest adversary — Islam. He often sounds more like a spokesman for CAIR than a Catholic pope. After jihadists cut off the head of a French priest in July 2016 — yelling “Allahu Akbar” over the priest’s slit throat — Pope Francis rushed to the defense of Islam. “I don’t like to talk about Islamic violence, because...

    A main reason for the trip is to try to strengthen relations with the 1,000-year-old Azhar center that were cut by the Muslim side in 2011 over what it said were repeated insults of Islam by Francis’s predecessor, Pope Benedict.” What did Benedict say? Andrea Gagliarducci of the Catholic News Agency explains that after a jihad terrorist murdered 23 Christians in a church in Alexandria 2011, Benedict decried “terrorism” and the “strategy of violence” against Christians, and called for the Christians of the Middle East to be protected.Al-Azhar’s Grand Imam, Ahmed al-Tayeb, whom Pope Francis welcomed to the Vatican in...

    WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - U.S. bishops, who administer some $2 billion a year in federal aid to social programs, are teaching that welcoming foreigners is a higher duty of government than protecting their own citizens. A recent study by Pew Research showed immigrants are committing the majority of felonies. The study found: 61% of all felony arrests in 2014 involved non-U.S. citizensNearly two thirds of all felony arrests in 2014 occurred in five judicial districts bordering Mexico In spite of this evidence showing the danger posed to U.S. citizens by illegal immigrants, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) issued a...

    In what would be a highly unusual omission, President Trump has not asked to meet Pope Francis during the president’s visit to Italy next month for the Group of Seven summit, sources said. Trump, who Francis suggested was “not Christian” if he wanted a wall on the Mexican border, is due in Sicily on May 26-27 for a meeting of the heads of the world’s richest nations. The two men have diametrically opposing positions on immigration, refugees, climate change and unbridled capitalism. Trump called the pope’s criticism of his plan to build the Mexico wall “disgraceful.”

    Is a conflict of interest behind some of the U.S. Catholic bishops’ strong criticisms of President Trump’s immigration policy, in particular his two temporary travel bans? That’s the question being raised by a number of experts in foreign policy and Catholic charitable work, including a former adviser to President Bush and a leading figure in conservative Catholic media. These critics are pointing out that in Fiscal Year 2016, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) received more than $91 million in government funding for refugee resettlement. Over the past nine years, the USCCB has received a total of $534,788,660...

    High-school students are being pressured to attend daily prayer meetings, lectures on the Koran and even cut their hair by peers badgering them to conform to Islam, according to 'scared' parents at Punchbowl Boys High School. The Punchbowl high school in Western Sydney has been identified as one of 19 New South Wales schools at risk of radicalising Muslim students, according to The Daily Telegraph. The NSW Government listed 19 schools across Western and South-Western Sydney taking part in a counter-extremism program called School Communities Working Together. Punchbowl Boys High School former principal Chris Griffiths initially refused the deradicalisation program,...

The foreign nationals tried and convicted of some of the most horrific crimes imaginable are being allowed to stay...

    CNN caught ADDING key word to Trump’s comments; Twitter ERUPTS It’s no longer a surprise that CNN, aka the Clinton News Network, is doing whatever it can to boost Hillary Clinton for president. It even admitted as much on air. And its actions in this presidential election continue to remove any doubt one might have had that it’s not to be viewed as an objective news source. We saw CNN hosts openly toasting and celebrating the Democrat candidate’s nomination. We’ve caught them editing out a Trump t-shirt worn by a hero — so as not to associate Trump with anything other...

    The Obama administration gave Somali Muslims behind-the-scenes tours at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport — the nation’s 17th busiest in terms of passenger traffic — after the group “complained to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson about feeling harassed and profiled.” Johnson has been consistently failing in his department, which is a key part of U.S. counter-terrorism efforts; and engages our worst enemies in a well-practiced strategy of stealth jihadists of a victimology subterfuge. “The special security tours not offered to any other group” followed round-table dialogue meetings with local Somali leaders to get their feedback for “modifications to practices that...

    Three professors have blamed the Orlando mass shooting on “toxic masculinity,” “ultranationalist” discourse, and “wide availability (and fetishization) of weapons.” Their essays, collected on Ohio State University’s Mujeres Talk blog, appeared in a post titled “Countering Hate with Knowledge, Fury, and Protest: Three Latina/o Studies Scholars Respond to Orlando Massacre.” “To say ‘We are all Orlando,’ is to risk being thought a queer, a fag, a freak, unnatural,” wrote Mariana Ortega, a philosophy professor at John Carroll University. “It is to lose the honorable shield of hetero-love.” Professor Ortega described the “Latinx” community’s response to the shooting as one consisting...
