Pope Appeaser? You Decide

The Pope visited Istanbul's Blue Mosque and prayed facing Mecca. The Grand Mufti of Istanbul, stood beside him and in respect of the Pope's gesture, prayed facing the Vatican.

 If you believe the second sentence, you might be on crack. The Grand Mufti did no such thing.

What is happening to Christianity? We can easily see how the American media is totally disrespectful to it, and we constantly see how Christians are being forced to remove all displays of religious symbols that gave them comfort. We see small towns refusing to allow Christmas trees to be displayed in their square--even refusing to allow them to be called Christmas trees, or to refer to the holiday with that word.

But the Pope? Is he planning to convert? Mecca?

Tolerance is a two-way street. If you give it but don't get it, you become a victim of your stupidity. You get laughed at, spit upon, and you turn the other cheek for the next loogie.

This Pope is an appeaser and in this time in history, being one is a very dangerous thing.

To Islam, Jesus, (Isa, in their tongue) is actually venerated as a Muslim prophet: Jesus declared, "We are Muslims" (Sura 5:111) and the Islamic Jesus is not the Christian Son of the Father.

The Koran's version, Isa, was not crucified and didn't die but was raised up by Allah (4:157-158), and when Isa returns, "he will fight for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill pigs, and abolish the poll tax [jizya]. Allah will destroy all religions except Islam." (Sunan Abu Dawud 27:4310).

So why in the world would a Pope of the Catholic Church believe that praying to Mecca is acceptable when to Islamic scripture, no other religion is acceptable? Remember, once that "poll tax" is abolished, so too will the protection be abolished for Christians and Jews.
