"Pope Francis said he doesn`t like singling out violence carried out by Muslims because people of all religions are guilty of deadly crimes.
He told reporters the situation was like `a mixed fruit salad` and that there were `violent people in all religions.`
`I do not like to talk about Islamic violence because every day when I skim the papers ... I read about violence in Italy: this one who killed the girlfriend, another killed the mother-in-law ... and they are all baptized Catholics,` he said aboard a Rome-bound flight from Poland on Sunday."
It`s seems like every week we read about a new atrocity committed by Islamic terrorists against Christians, these fanatics are singling out Christians specifically because of their faith.
The leader of the Roman Catholic Church is mute, explaining that he doesn`t like singling out violence carried out by Muslims because people of all religions are guilty of deadly crimes. The pontiff explains that every day he reads in the newspapers about murders committed by Catholics, that`s certainly true but they aren`t killing in the name of the Roman Catholic Church. Christians aren`t bombing mosques, schools, or stadiums in the name of Jesus Christ.
During the Inquisition the Roman Catholic Church perpetrated unspeakable atrocities, but the church went through a reformation, and today it`s known primarily for its good works: Establishing hospitals and schools all over the world.
Islam is an inherently intolerant and violent religion, and it`s desperately in need of a reformation. Those of us of other faiths, or no faith, need to speak out against the crimes done in the name of Allah. Religious leaders especially need to speak out against Islamic terrorism, killing in the name of a deity damages the integrity of all faiths.
As a wiser man once said "Tolerance of intolerance is cowardice", it`s incumbent upon the Pope to condemn Islamic terrorism. For God`s sake, thousands of Christians are being crucified, beheaded and burnt alive in the Middle East by jihadists, what will it take for the Pope to forget about political correctness and speak out behalf of his brothers and sisters in the faith?
