Pope Francis is a holy man and a good man. He is a faithful servant of Christ and has been a good leader of the Catholic church, but that does not make him infallible.
His views on immigration and the migrant crisis don’t reflect the reality of the situation that is going on in Europe.
The Holy Father doesn’t have to deal with the daily struggle of immigration and terrorism. He only expressed what is in his heart and what he believed that Word of God teaches.
Which explains his unfortunate stance on radical Islamic terror made during a speech on Friday:
no people is criminal and no religion is terrorist. Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist.
With all due respect Your Holiness, you are wrong. Islamic terror is very real, and it is the biggest threat to Western Civilization. Have you not heard what ISIS is doing and what they want to do across the world? Are you unaware that ISIS is targeting Middle Eastern Christians for genocide?
These are not people who are a “populist” or even popular movement. They believe they are on a mission from a false God. They believe that their holy book tells them to destroy the West and enslave “infidels.”
That is why anti-immigration and populist sentiment is rising. People understand that Radical Islam is a direct threat to Democracy, Western Civilization, AND Christianity. Do you think ISIS would be so charitable and kind to you?
They wish for your death and destruction. I understand we are supposed to forgive them, but we can only forgive those who ask for it.
Pope Francis, you must join us and declare radical Islam an enemy. Only then can we work together to destroy this hateful ideology.
