On Friday, Pope Francis put Islam, Christianity, and Judaism all in the same boat.
In an impassioned address the Vicar of Christ denied the existence of Islamic terrorism, while simultaneously asserting that “the ecological crisis is real.”
“Christian terrorism does not exist, Jewish terrorism does not exist, and Muslim terrorism does not exist. They do not exist,” Francis said in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements.
What he probably should have said is that “not all Christians are terrorists and not all Muslims are terrorists” — a fact evident to all — however, the terminology he used suggests that the hundreds of Islamic terror groups around the world do not exist.
Overlooking ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, and terrorists for the sake of political correctness will never yield good results.
“No people is criminal or drug-trafficking or violent,” Francis said, while also suggesting that terrorism the terrorism that does occur is primarily a result of “economic inequalities” rather than religious beliefs. “The poor and the poorer peoples are accused of violence yet, without equal opportunities, the different forms of aggression and conflict will find a fertile terrain for growth and will eventually explode.”
