Vatican makes history: Pope allows Islamic prayers, Koran readings

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 4/20/2019 5:34:24 AM

For the first time in Vatican history, the pope allowed for the reading of Islamic prayers and Koran readings from the Catholic facility. The readings and prayer came as Pope Francis met with Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Vatican City, a gathering designed to pray for Middle Eastern peace. A Holy See spokesman said the prayers were supposed to be a “pause in politics,” Breitbart reported. The pope said, too, that he hoped the interfaith prayers would foster peace specifically between Israelis and Palestinians, the news outlet said.


That´s the complete report.

I´m thinking this q qualifies him as an anti-christ, or a Judas priest at the very least.

When are they going to allow Christian prayers at Mecca, or Temple Mount?

Or is that ´insensitive´?

Yup -- and heading five times a day for the rebuilt Notre Dame.

I did propose that Notre Dame be rebuilt only by Catholics, only for Catholics. But we can´t even trust Catholics to protect their own religion. Is there enough room in Hades?

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except by me.“ Is there something ambiguous about this that the Pope cannot understand? And no, Muslims do not worship the same God that Christians worship, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. In fact, “You shall have no other gods before me.“ A man wrote their holy Scriptures. God wrote ours. These two religions do not meet anywhere. I see in this act that the Pope desires to destroy Catholicism.

What is really going on here? An attempted coup of the West? Christendom’s commitment to peace and harmony has never been the issue; not during the Crusades, not now, not ever and Pope Francis knows it. During the same week that Notre Dame almost burned to the ground and strong suspicion for arson rests on Muslims the pope goes and does this.

Think of all the knights who died in the Crusades-this charlatan is disavowing them as sure as liberals disavow our war dead in Arlington Cemetery but far worse. And he does this during Holy Week? After the tragedy at Notre Dame. This man is not fit to be a Catholic, much less a Pope.

If I´m not mistaken, Muslims believe that, once they have prayed in a location, that location becomes part of Islam. That Frankie did this during Holy Week is especially heinous, though any date at all would have been terrible.

“A pause in politics”? This idiot should not be involved in politics at all - it’s not his job. His job is leading the flock and saving souls. This member of his flock is getting less and less likely to stay there.

Nice correlation between drop in number of Catholic members and the installation of Francis. . . Let´s have a Catholic Pope for a change or re-install Benedict. Francis is the choice of the
leftists and as usual they destroy anything good; we´ve been watching their destruction of the USA, it´s ethics and morals for political correctness and now Francis is doing the same to the Roman Catholic Church.

As a Protestant I can´t take communion in a Catholic church but a Catholic can take communion in my church. But the fake religion islam can offer koran readings and islamic prayers. Islam is nothing more than a totalitarian political movement seeking world domination and subjugation of all people and if you don´t conform to their sick and twisted political ideology they will eventually kill you. Won´t be long before the Pope says the God of the Bible and the islamic god allah are the same!

Ok, here it is guys: if you are of Catholic persuasion and are disheartened by the Pope´s willingness to fall to heresy and abandon the Faith as it was put into his hands, but don´t know where to go to continue the Catholic faith:

Please consider what I term a Western Orthodox church: the Anglican Catholic church. Just that name plus dot Oh Arr Gee will take you to a site that will explain who we are.

My mother once joked not long after I joined this church that I was now more Catholic than she was. We love our God, our country, and adhere to a church that was practiced before the Great Schism. Please consider us.

Well, what can you do? Those of us who pointed out early on that Pope Francis was a socialist and a moron were chastised by some of our more ardently Catholic fellow L-Dotters. We were gently chided that we were buying into liberal propaganda and missing the Pope´s secret, sophisticated plan.

It´s not so secret anymore. Francis is a socialist and a moron. Once again, Catholics have been betrayed by the Peter Principle. No, not the commission to Peter that founds papal authority in the words of Jesus Christ. I´m referring to the Peter Principle that says men rise to the level of their incompetence.

I don´t know whether Francis is a incompetent administrator, but I do know he´s a lousy Pope. It´s happened before, and it will happen again. No doubt we will hear that this is all part of God´s plan.

When Winston Churchill was told he had failed of re-election in 1945, his wife said, "Perhaps it´s a blessing in disguise." Churchill replied, "If it is a blessing, it is remarkably well-disguised."

Pope Francis is remarkably well-disguised.

Wondering why an article printed in 2014 was posted? At my first read of it I was incensed but the 2nd time I read the date and was perplexed. What the pope did back in 2014 is still horribly disturbing, especially as a conservative Catholic and in light of the burning of Notre Dame - which was no accident. The pope has been silent on the other thousands of church and cathedral decorations. I´m wondering if these prayers and readings are still going on because muslims are at the fore of iconoclasm.

Jorge Bergoglio is a wolf in sheep´s clothing. I won´t be surprised to see the Vatican suffer the same fate as the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., which performs same sex weddings and also allows Muslims to enter for their Friday prayers, which Muslims must surely see as a conquest for Islam. The National Cathedral suffered heavy damage from an earthquake a few years back. Yes, there are earthquakes in Rome, too.

First, get over the narrow-minded notion that the Pope is anything other than a man.

Second, get over the notion that the Catholic Church has a special standing with the Almighty.

Third, accept the fact that the Church consists of those who follow Christ, regardless of their congregational affiliation or even lack thereof.

Organized Christianity is every bit as susceptible to the inner machinations of politicization as any other group of humans. The size of the Catholic Church makes it particularly so as the power it wields is directly proportional to the corruption that must be applied to protect it.

Do not get me wrong. There are good Catholics, but they get their goodness from Christ - not the Pope. They get their salvation from Christ, not the Pope and not Mary... and no saint who has passed before them.

Tomorrow morning we celebrate the resurrection of the only One who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. It is HE who took on death and won the battle for all who trust in Him. It is HE who, according to Paul, is actually the Creator.

Anyone who worships a man or woman, dead or alive, is missing the whole point of Christianity.

Former Rep.

Gowdy made the revelation in an interview Sunday with Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo. "There are a lot of serious questions that need to be asked" during Attorney General William Barr's investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, Gowdy said. Among them: "Where are the transcripts, if any exist, between the informants and the telephone calls to George Papadopoulos?"

This happened despite the fact that most analysts expected it to lose a large number of seats; despite being (seemingly) out of step with the nation’s emerging consensus on climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race; despite a chaotic tenure in office that has seen three leaders since 2016; despite a threadbare

Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year's record number of flea-borne typhus cases. Even the city's most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA's busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.

The phrase comes from the 1977 episode of the television comedy “Happy Days” in which one of its leading characters, the “Fonz,” jumped over a shark in a water skiing stunt in swim trunks along with his signature leather jacket. That moment was viewed as a desperate ratings stunt by a dying television series struggling to keep viewers engaged. Today, the phrase has come to define similar instances of desperation. With the many overhyped political moments of the last two years, it is not clear when the partisan shark jump occurred. Soon after the appointment of special counsel

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Here’s a revealing — and disturbing — new poll that bears on the current gang fight among leftists for the soul of the Democratic Party and its 2020 presidential nomination. See Also: ESPN chief: You’ll never guess what our viewers want to hear nothing about Almost half of Americans in a new Gallup Poll believe that socialism would be a good thing for the United States to have. Almost half (43 percent). A good thing. Democrats like Bernie Sanders driving that party to the left may be on to something for a winning theme in next year’s vote. Today, a bare majority (51 percent) says socialism would

There’s no longer any way to avoid it: “Something strange is going on at Fox News.” “Something strange is going on at Fox News. Something very strange,” President Donald Trump told a throng of thousands at his Pennsylvania rally last night. “The audience showed their agreement by booing Fox News.” (The Blaze, May 21, 2019) According to the Blaze "President Donald Trump
Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible
Democrats Embrace Socialism:Are We
Headed Towards 'Atlas Shrugged'?

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
