Skip to comments.Pope's New Book Settles It: Islam Is a Religion of Peace After All!

In a sane world (yes, that disqualifies ours), the justification of the horrendously bloody Oct. 7 Hamas massacre by numerous Islamic authorities would have been enough to put an end forever to the comforting fiction that Islam is a religion of peace that condemns terrorism. One place, however, where this myth is alive and well, despite the mountain of theological and historical evidence, as well as contemporary news to the contrary is the Vatican.
Pope Francis has just released a new book in which he proclaims once again that Islam is benign and cuddly, to be met by Westerners with nothing less than a full embrace. And he should know, right?
Actually, the specter of the leader of one major religious tradition making authoritative pronouncements about another should be disqualifying on its face.
Pope Francis has, presumably, been studying Christianity all his life, although many members of his own flock might dispute that. But does his presumed expertise on Christianity qualify him to speak authoritatively about Islam? Did he study at his buddy Grand Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb’s venerable Sunni institution, al-Azhar? Did he perchance attend a more humble madrassa? Has he actually read the Qur’an or even ever opened one?
Leaving all these questions (and many more like them) unanswered, Francis declares in his new book, "Non Sei Solo: Sfide, Risposte, Speranze (You Are Not Alone: Challenges, Answers, Hopes)," which has yet to be fully translated into English: "As they say, either you are a terrorist or you are a Muslim. Then, by the way, we find fundamentalism in all religions. Radical Islam is a perversion because it is a religion that talks about peace."

Well if the fraudulent, heretic Pope says it then, gee, it must be true.
The question is, "Just who is this deity?"
The Heretic Pope
“Radical Islam is a perversion because it is a religion that talks about peace.””
Yeah peace for them after everyone else has been slaughtered.
Frankie is setting his self up to be the last pope - which would kill one branch of Christianity and the oldest - accomplishing that objective has long been one of Islam’s primary goals.
Islam isn’t a religion any more than Scientology is. Both based on one man’s vision of how to subordinate people to his own advantage.
Seems the only people Frank disapproves of are Catholics.
You can’t coexist with people that want to kill you.
The Pope should have asked.
Many years ago I asked a Muslim friend to explain the ‘peace’ thing because I just didn’t see it... he said it means, ‘when everyone is Muslim there will be peace’...
At first I thought he was joking - and the conversation continued - but it wasn’t a joke. It was a very sincere understanding of his religion that ‘peace’ came when all people in the world were Muslim.
(NOT MY POPE..)
All manner of Comic Books are being published nowadays.
I apologize to whichever FReeper I stole this from...
Know Islam, no peace.
No Islam, know peace.
The Roman Catholic catechism says they do.
Do you have the specific quote handy? I would like to file it away for future use.
Christians and Muslims do not worship and adore the same God. No way.
Atheist commie pope strikes again.
Don't believe your lying eyes and ears. Islam has always been a religion of peace! /s
