    "Pope Francis, in an interview with the French newspaper La Croix, suggested a likeness between ISIS and Jesus by explaining that while “the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam,” it was quite possible to interpret certain passages of the Gospels, particularly in Matthews, as a call for Christians to go forth with this “same idea of conquest” in their discipleship."

    He also says various other stupid stuff that would give material for a couple more threads.

    if you read farther it explained what was going on it seems he was saying Christianity could have done the same thing. they have too sometimes with violence too.

    A more accurate title for this thread would be:

    Cheryl Chumley, a reporter for WND Faith, misinterprets a Pope statement as likening ISIS to Jesus, even though neither ISIS nor Jesus are mentioned in the Pope's statement.

    Oh, by the bleeding nails of Christ, can you not treat of such material in an intellectually credible manner?

    You know, it is quite possible to interrogate the arguments and beliefs expressed without traducing the original source to such a degree that it is transformed beyond recognition in your post.

    And anger is such an exhausting emotion. Especially when deployed and employed to excess. Where do these people get their energy from?

    Ah, some historical facts married to intellectual integrity. Shocking....


    Yes, but less us not allow the inconvenience of cold, hard, facts to get in the way of a nice bit of possibly misleading distortion.........spiced up with a little side helping of misrepresentation.....

    Why not say that at the outset?

    Well, maybe about a century ago, give or take. Though it's always a good idea to keep in mind that it's backpedaling to a more primitive state is an ever present possibility.

    The tyranny of contrary opinion is always a good motivator.

    I get my energy from coffee :mad: :eek:

    This particular pope has developed a habit of making half baked statements about politics.

    I personaly believe that he should stick to spiritual matters instead.

    No, but we were still sending missionaries out to convert people at the point of a gun by the turn of the 20th century. Not too long ago, we had Army of God running around shooting abortion doctors, and threatening to blow up clinics.

    Don't take this as an argument that Christianity is inherently evil, and that we should defend Islam at its expense. Rather, think of it as a warning that we're only ever a moment of weakness away from being just as bad. Don't ever assume your goodness stems from the simple sake of superior standing.

    Not the act of witnessing itself, no. Rather the terrible things that have been done by some missionaries in the name of God.

    The point I'm making is that ISIS isn't a phenomenon exclusive to Islam. I'm not defending it, nor am I saying that we're just as bad. We're not. But we could be. The threat of extremism exists in all religions and cultures.

    This is what the pope is saying.

    You fail to produce an example were christians terrorized the entire world. In current times - not a thousand years ago.

    Taking missionaries as an example is ridiculus.

    That there is the possibilty of extremism in everything is obvious and the popes supposed point redundant.
