Pope Francis: persecution against Christians is now greater than the early church | Christian News on Christian Today

Pope Francis has condemned persecution against Christians in a revealing interview with Spanish ‘La Vanguardia’ magazine, in which he also addressed fundamentalism, poverty and his own legacy.

“What I would like to be clear on is one thing, I am convinced that the persecution against Christians today is stronger than in the first centuries of the Church,” the Pontiff declared according to an article published last week.

“Today there are more Christian martyrs than in that period. And, it’s not because of fantasy, it’s because of the numbers.”

He added: “The persecuted Christians are a concern that touches me very deeply as a pastor…In some places it is prohibited to have a Bible or teach the catechism or wear a cross.”

Notice he doesn’t name the persecutors.  Probably because he’s already licked their privates in public:

Pope: ‘Authentic’ Islam opposes violence

Pope Francis’ insistence in his new apostolic exhortation that “authentic Islam and the proper reading of the Quran are opposed to every form of violence” is drawing negative reviews from some analysts of the religion who point to the Islamic holy book’s calls to wage war against nonbelievers.

Apparently the Muslim oppressors of Christianity, despite a 1500 year history of doing exactly that, aren’t “authentic Muslims.”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Remember ‘liberation theology’, which was basically a communist movement within the Roman Catholic Church. It came out of South America, when? The 1970′s? Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI, recently resigned) called it Marxist. Well, guess where Pope Francis comes from.

    Coincidence?

    I suspect not.
