Pope Francis Prays Towards Mecca, States: Islam is Religion of Peace, Europe Should Open Borders to Muslims


“It is essential that all citizens – Muslim, Jewish and Christian – both in the provision and practice of the law, enjoy the same rights and respect the same duties,” the pope added. “They will then find it easier to see each other as brothers and sisters who are travelling the same path, seeking always to reject misunderstandings while promoting cooperation and concord. Freedom of religion and freedom of expression, when truly guaranteed to each person, will help friendship to flourish and thus become an eloquent sign of peace.”

Muslims and Christians are traveling the same path? Don’t think so…

Even Erdogan stated:

“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets, and the faithful our soldiers.”

There seems to be too much blood on this ‘path’ for it to be hospitable to both religions.

Francis, the leader of 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, insisted that it was wrong for anyone to react to terrorism by being ‘enraged’ against Islam.

He added that ending poverty was crucial, partly because it gave rise to ‘the recruitment of terrorists’. Francis has in the past said that, while it is lawful for the international community to use force to stop an ‘unjust aggressor’, lasting solutions must be found that tackle the root causes of violence.
