Francis: There is not only Islamic violence, there is Catholic violence

Fox News is reporting:

"When asked why he didn't describe the priest's murder (Father Jacques Hamel) and other attacks as Islamic terrorism, Francis replied he won't do that because 'it's not right to identify Islam with violence. It's not right and it's not true.'

'I believe that in every religion there is always a little fundamentalist group.'

'I don't like to talk of Islamic violence because every day, when I go through the newspapers, I see violence, this man who girls his girlfriend, another who kills his mother-in-law,' Francis said, in apparent reference to crime news in predominantly Catholic Italy. 'And these are baptized Catholics. If I speak of Islamic violence, then I have to speak of Catholic violence.'"

What Francis fails to mention, dishonest individual that he is, is that Catholics who engage in acts of violence are not doing so in the name of the Church or by appealing to a "holy book" which advocates killing "infidels" - non-believers.

In his book entitled Truth and Tolerance: Christian Belief and World Religions, Pope Benedict XVI made a few observations which refute Francis. The Holy Father wrote, "To what extent the new surge forward of the Islamic world is fuelled by truly religious forces is..open to question.  In many places, as we can see, there is the danger of a pathological development of the autonomy of feeling.." (p. 104).

On page 204 of the same book, Pope Benedict XVI writes, "...even with Islam, with all the greatness it represents, is always in danger of losing balance, letting violence have a place and letting religion slide away into mere outward observance and ritualism."

One cannot say this about Catholicism. Unless one is Francis.  Only he compares a man killing his girlfriend with Jihadists crying Allahu akbar while using the Koran as justification for flying planes into skyscrapers, beheading Catholic Priests, blowing up children or running them over with a truck.

For this sick mind, there is something called "Catholic violence."  This is a lie. And Francis is a liar.

There is absolutely no doubt that the human history of the Church, like all of human history, has its dark pages. But if anyone cares to take an objective look at this history, one must quickly acknowledge that the doctrine of the Church has always implicitly condemned abuses introduced by Her members.

In the words of Dr. Dietrich Von Hildebrand, "There were sinners in the Church yesterday and there are sinners in the Church today. But the Church Herself, in her divine teaching, emerges gloriously unspotted in a history stained by human weaknesses, errors, imperfections, and sins." In the words of the great Cardinal Journet:

"All contradictions are eliminated as soon as we understand that the members of the Church do indeed sin, but they do so by their betraying the Church. The Church is thus not without sinners, but She is without sin. The Church as person is responsible for penance. She is not responsible for sins....The members of the Church themselves - laity, clerics, priests, Bishops, and Popes - who disobey the Church are responsible for their sins, but the Church as person is not responsible...It is forgotten that the Church as person is the Bride of Christ, 'Whom He has purchased with His own blood.'" (Acts 20:28).

There is no such thing as "Catholic violence."  Those Catholics who commit murder are self-condemned and are betraying the Church and her teaching.
But with Islam, it is different.  Islam advocates violence.  See here.

when is he "Pranksis"=P. Francis o:) gonna open his mouth that Islam does NOT accept Jesus as the Son of God : on the Dome of the Rock (the mosque with the golden dome) on the TEMPLE MOUNT ( !!! ) in Jerusalem is an inscription in Arabic that says : GOD HAS NO SON.
We have NO LEADERS !!! They don't need to spread hatred but at least they must inform the people about the content and ideas of "FALSE RELIGIONS" There is only one TRUE BIBLE, the WORD OF GOD. God doesn't change His Words for Islam or whatever false religion.
Also Islam allows you to lie if it suits your belief or if it suits you yourself = it is called : TAQIYYAH .
While living in Israel, I did on Fridays the Way of the Cross in Jerusalem - (in the old city). One time an Arab-Palestinian passing me, stops me and says : "why are you going the way of the Cross !? Don't you know that Jesus NEVER died on the Cross, never carried the Cross!!! His apostles put an imposter in His place, they hid Him."
I just ignored what he said and answered : well He,Jesus, died for you too and I continued even more devout the Way of the Cross and asked Jesus to open the eyes of that moslim man.

I believe Francis is under diabolic inluence. His distortion of the truth, and of facts is seemingly neverending. To lump Catholics in with violent jihadists is reprehensible. He is leading souls to confusion and error. We have no strong leadership under his papacy.much prayer is needed for the restoration of the faith.

If he is referring to the crusades, he should understand that when any of the soldiers when out of line (such as killing innocent families and fellow christians), they were immediately condemned to excommunication unless they truly repented for committing such an atrocity.

Might I add to all this: Francis is proclaiming VERY VERY DANGEROUS ideas that have a great potential for the VERY REAL PERSECUTION of Catholic Christians!!!!!!! Think about it. In the VERY dangerous climate we are living in, he is saying that Catholics can be as DANGEROUS AS RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS!!!!! He is saying that EVERY RELIGION including CATHOLICS have groups of FUNDAMENTALISTS that are potential savage murderers!!!!! Think about the implications of the venom he is spewing!!!!! Is he really trying to drive home the idea that ALL FUNDAMENTALISTS are exactly like these savage murderers and NEED TO BE ELIMINATED???!!!!!! He has gone from being a questionable heretic of the Catholic faith to a very DANGEROUS MAN for his own PEOPLE!!!!! He is being DIABOLICALLY INFLUENCED.

Which is why I wrote this post. Francis is paving the way for a syncretistic New World Religion which will not tolerate orthodox Christians and Jews. It will call for us to be eliminated in the name of progress.
