Francis: The Apostate Pope
He was elected on the 13th of March 2013 as Pope Francis, the Catholic Church’s head and sovereign of the Vatican City State. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, born in Argentina, was the first Jesuit Pope (Society of Jesus), the first from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere, and the first pope from outside Europe since the Syrian Gregory III (731 AD).
The pope is the Bishop of Rome (whose titles also include Vicar of Jesus Christ and Successor of St. Peter). He is also the church’s chief pastor, entrusted with the universal Petrine Ministry of unity and correction.
Millions of people use the word Catholic without actually knowing the meaning of it. Catholic is derived from Late Latin Catholicus, from the Greek adjective (katholikos), meaning “universal.”
The Catholic Church – sometimes referred to as the Roman Catholic Church – is the largest Christian church, with approximately 1.3 billion baptized Catholics worldwide as of 2018. The church consists of almost 3,500 dioceses (administrations) around the world. Therefore, Pope Francis has the greatest number of informers worldwide than any other leader on Earth.
Liberation theology is a synthesis of Christian Theology and socio-economics that emphasizes “social concern for the poor and political liberation for oppressed peoples,” which started in the early 1960s after the Second Vatican Council. Liberation theology became the political activities of Latin American theologians. The World Synod of Catholic Bishops in 1971 chose as its theme “Justice in the World.”
The best-known form of liberation theology developed within the Catholic Church in Latin America in the 1960s, arising principally as a moral reaction to the severe poverty and social injustice in the region.
Francis’ doctrinal views are most definitely Globalist, Internationalist, and Liberation theology from his encyclicals, preaching, and actions. He has been modifying several Catholic dogmas such as the ordination of women, embracing LGBT in the church, allowing the legal recognition of same-sex couples (marriage), and others that were previously anathema to the church. He has faced criticism from theological conservatives on many questions, including admitting civilly divorced and remarried Catholics to communion.
It is one thing that popes are supposed to be infallible regarding doctrinal matters. Still, most assuredly, based on the historical records, they have been abysmally in error when addressing scientific, social, economic, and political matters.
Francis has deliberately inserted himself into doctrinal issues such as economics, politics, immigration, and climate change. He is an outspoken critic of capitalism and free-market economics, the very entities that brought hundreds of millions of people out of poverty all over the world.
It is Capitalism that allows for prosperity, not Socialism. Communist China is an excellent example of blatant free economics, making her the second most powerful in the world. Communist Vietnam is following suit.
On what concrete scientific basis is Francis siding with the utterly meaningless mantra of “Climate Change”? For over two billion years, without any input from humans, the climate has been changing from ice ages to tropical heat. Humans contribute to the degradation of the land, sea, and the air is undoubtedly true but has nothing to do with climate change.
The most difficult item to understand about Francis is his obsession with his self-inflicted idea that Christians and Muslims can be reconciled and can live side by side in total harmony. How can he square the Catholic dogma, that only through belief in Jesus Christ can a human being be saved, against the Sharia dogma, that only through belief in Muhammad and Allah can this be achieved?
Pope Francis issued his apostolic exhortation of 2013, “The Joy of the Gospel,” in which he asserted – without a single reference to the fact – that “Faced with disconcerting episodes of violent fundamentalism, our respect for true followers of Islam should lead us to avoid hateful generalizations, for authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Quran are opposed to every form of violence.”
How is it conceivable that any rational and fair-minded human being, having only read – let alone studied – Muhammad’s Quran, can make such an outrageous statement when no person on Earth can find a single operative verse in the Quran that shows any compassion or mercy towards unbelievers/ kuffar/ infidels; currently 80% of none Muslim humanity?
Somehow, absurdly and very erroneously, Francis has persuaded himself that the god Allah is Muhammad’s Quran, is the same as the God of the Bible. That the Quran is not dissimilar to the Bible. That Islam is an Abrahamic religion.
All these illusions are against every record in the last 1400 years of Islamic history vis a vis other religions, especially Trinitarian Christianity, which represents the worst case of Shirk (associating other divines – Jesus Son of God – with Allah) as far as Islamic Sharia is concerned.
How is it plausible that with tens of millions of Christians in Arab and Muslim countries – who are actually the most persecuted religious entity on Earth in the 21st century – under Francis watch, yet he has mistakenly persuaded himself and misguided hundreds of millions of his followers, that Muslims and Christians can co-exist as equals in Muslim Sharia-compliant countries?
There are 57 Muslim majority countries in the world, and only 5 minor ones show any semblance of tolerance towards Christians. All the other 52 would not allow Christians to celebrate any of their holidays publicly. Are not the Christian Copts of Egypt being mercilessly persecuted? The same in Iraq, Pakistan, Nigeria, Syria, Libya, Gaza, to name a few?
Yet incomprehensibly, Francis and his prelates, not only have been deafeningly silent all these years but adding insult to injury, have been championing unlimited Muslim immigration into Christian Europe and the USA.
Why are Francis and his associates deliberately but foolishly disregarding the almost daily cases of Muslim so-called ‘immigrants’ terrorizing Europe; raping and sexually enslaving European girls?
On the 4th of February 2019, Pope Francis and the Grand Sunni Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb, signed a document on “Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together” during a Global Conference on the topic in Abu Dhabi. It is supposed to be a historic declaration for peace, freedom, and women’s rights.
There are hundreds of verses in Muhammad’s Quran that totally demolish Francis’s declarations about ‘peaceful’ Islam. I must share with you a few of the most relevant.
Regarding ‘fraternity,’ this is what the Quran instructs Muslims that somehow escaped Francis’ attention.
Ali Imran 3:28 “Let not the believers(Muslims) take for friends or helpers unbelievers (Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus) rather than believers; if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah; except by way of precaution that ye may guard yourselves from them (tattaqoo). But Allah cautions you (to remember) Himself for the final goal is to Allah.”
This was and is a farcical and utterly meaningless document since it denies both facts and reality as they truly exist. Simply put, there cannot ever be peace between Islamic Sharia (the foundational rules of Islam) and the Judeo-Christian Biblical tenets. None.
This is exactly how and why every Muslim terrorist organization from Isis to Boko-haram quote verses from the Quran justifying their dastardly deeds against non-Muslims/ kuffar/infidels.
Al Baqara 2.216: “Jihad (holy fighting in Allah’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows, but you do not know.”
Sharia also negates any possibility for human freedoms or women’s rights as demonstrated by the actuality, that not a single Sharia-compliant Muslim country, has either human freedoms or women’s rights. Sharia forbids totally any ‘fraternity’ between Muslims and non-Muslims.
Al Mai’da 5:51 “O ye who believe (Muslims)! Take not the Jews [Yahood] and the Christians [Nasara] for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you (Muslims) that turns to them (for friendship) is of them…”
The implications of the last sentence are of immense importance, “And he amongst you (Muslims) that turns to them (for friendship) is of them…” meaning that any followers of Muhammad who befriend or under the rule of Christians or Jews (or any none Muslim group) would be considered Apostates to Islam, outsiders to Islam, enemies of Islam who must be slaughtered.
Al Tauba 9:29 “Fight [qatiloo] those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His apostle [Muhammad], nor acknowledge the religion of truth [ISLAM], (even if they are) of the People of the Book [Christians & Jews] until they pay the Jizya [onerous Tax for not being a Muslim] with willing submission and feel themselves humiliated.”
In reality, Imam Ahmed el-Tayeb bested the most important Christian leader in the world by signing this one-sided declaration that benefits Islamic Dawa (the act of inviting or calling people to embrace Islam). El-Tayeb is a master of Islamic Taqiyya (deliberate deception of non-Muslims).
In summation, one of the world’s most leading Sunni Muslims has played the world’s most famous Christian for a fool. Grand Imam el-Tayeb has turned Pope Francis into a dhimmi (non-Muslim under the rule of Muslims) and a dunce.
To compound his error, even more, Pope Francis is set to make the first-ever papal visit to Iraq from March 5-8, with visits planned to Baghdad, the northern city of Mosul, and Ur.
Pope Francis will meet the top Shia religious leader Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, who will also use taqiyya (subterfuge) on the clueless and ill-informed Francis, who will then would have been two-timed by both the Sunni and Shia leaders.
Therefore, I ask a direct non-rhetorical question: Is Pope Francis a Christian (serving Jesus) or an Apostate (serving Allah)?
