Upon returning from his historic Apostolic Journey to the Arabian Penninsula, specifically the United Arab Emirates, Pope Francis said that the Islamic world and the Christian world will work together to promote "common values."
Speaking before his general audience in St. Peter's Square on Wednesday, Pope Francis discussed his meeting with the Great Imam of Al-Azhar and their signing of the document on the Human Brotherhood, which condemned all forms of religious violence, and the spreading of authentic values throughout the world.
"The Great Imam of Al-Azhar and I signed the document on the Human Brotherhood, in which together we affirm the common vocation of all men and women to be brothers in. As God's sons and daughters, we condemn all forms of violence, especially those with religious motivation, and we commit ourselves to spreading authentic values and peace throughout the world," Pope Francis said. "It gives so much pressure to move forward in the dialogue on human brotherhood."
The Holy Father said the document was meant to give a "clear and decisive sign" that different religions can respect each other in dialogue. He also denounced the temptation to see a "clash between Christian and Islamic civilizations."
"In an era like ours, in which the temptation to see a clash between Christian and Islamic civilizations is strong, and also to consider religions as sources of conflict, we wanted to give a further, clear and decisive sign that instead it is possible to meet, it is possible to respect and dialogue, and that, despite the diversity of cultures and traditions, the Christian and Islamic world appreciate and protect common values: life, family, religious sense, honor for the elderly, the education of young people, and others," the Pope said.

Oh, good. So the Catholic Church is going to resume the Inquisition to ferret out and kill all those pesky Jews?
‘Common values’, right?
This is satire, right?
Jews & Bible believing Christians.
This clown is frigging mad. Pope Urban II gave us back Europe, and this - thing - will bring us Eurabia.
Please, Catholics, ditch the gay guy. Please.
(I was raised a Catholic and could never have imagined that I’d loathe a Pope.)
Slaughter more Hindus, Buddhists, and Jews?
Dang! Beat me to it...
True, you’re right that another tradition Bergoglio will have to bring back is Bible burning.
That’ll surely please his Islamic masters.
We are going to all work together, said the wolves to the sheep.
I didn’t know Neville Chamberlain was Catholic.
This Pope sucks. He never misses a chance to suck.
I’ve just had about enough of this man. Is he kissing up to *slam because he knows it is more powerful than Christianity? Does he think that his kissy-face with the *mam will make all m*slims in the world become tolerant, kind non-violent people?
He doth deceive himself.
Anyone else notice the name Jesus is strangely absent form Pope Franciss vocabulary
I was raised Catholic too, but after they took away Latin I left. Loathed that pope, whoever he was. Recently decided to go back to the Church. Local cathedral is gorgeous, choir is symphony-worthy, very uplifting. Then here comes another gay scandal, particular in my city.
Actually going to Unity next Sunday with friend. All they talk about is "be nice." I have a lot of friends who go there. They're very nice. :)
There is a mosque in Rome, the center of Catholicism. And that mosque operates openly and freely.
So here’s question for the Pope:
Is there a Catholic church in Mecca, the center of Islam? If not, why not open one there, Francis? Show the world that Christians and Muslims are indeed equal partners.
Pope POS Socialist the First, The Great Dhimmi ....
Tell you what, PoPo, YOU make nice with the subhuman scum who probably just converted you to izlam with or without your knowledge.
Stick to your own church of Catholicism and let those people sort you out or leave. Leave “Christianity” at large out of your conversations.
You fecking moron. The goal of the idiocracy of izlam is NOT to be a Brotherhood of Man, but to conquer and subdue all who are not part of their sharia jihadi lifestyle - or kill them if they will not submit.
Just, eff you, Pope. Eff you. If I hadn’t left the RCC long ago I would take great delight in doing so now.
Abandon all hope ye who enter a Catholic Church, and abandon the ship full of fools and sh!t that calls itself The Catholic Church. Just get out. You will find truth and true salvation elsewhere.
Mohammad was a Pedophile, what does that mean for lot of priests who share the same (i.e. “common”) proclivities?
Islam has a real problem. When Muslims encounter true Christianity, they are attracted to it. Muslims are Muslims because their families are Muslim. The majority of them in the US never darken the door of a mosque.
Only when he tells Jesus to sit down in the corner and “decree” that Mary is more important than Jesus.
