Too bad it doesn’t really work that way.
If only that was what was going on. Unfortunately it is just the church getting cozy with another dictatorship. Not surprising though.
Good luck with that.
In a perfect world.. which it ain’t
I wouldn’t buy into this train of thought too soon. Remember Catholics (Spain) tortured and killed Jews and Muslims just a few hundred years ago. Barely enough time to refill the coffers in Rome. Ah – that’s it the Pope is looking for donations for a new wing on the Vatican – for Muslim studies of course.
I wish them luck, the Muslim fellow is obviously not a Wahabi.
Given the centuries of history of Catholic – Muslim antipathy, war and death, this has to be considered an historic event, small as it is. I wish the Pope well. This is not a bad thing, in my opinion. (Your opinions may vary.)
This is terrible. As Jesus said, “Cursed are the peacemakers.” (Evangelical version)
Better to have a goal to reach than simply hope.
Baby steps. But steps still the same.
As Vlad Putin said last night:
The Russians built a wall across the middle of Berlin and not one single Mexican ever climbed over it into East Berlin.
