WND riles up the Crazies:
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.The Crazies at Free Republic eagerly take the bait, as witnessed by these responses:
“How does he know that? When did he become an imam?” wonders columnist Pamela Geller.
She notes as an example the Quranic passage that states: “So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks.”
I don't know why the Pope would say something that is easily proven to be untrue. The Koran is full of violence and Mohammed murdered many himself.
Totally wrong on every level.
The pope continues to disappoint.
Perhaps the pope has not read the muslim’s book
His Holiness is sadly mistaken about Islam.
The Pope is an idiot and definitely not infallible.
My sympathies to the lay Catholics and the rest of the world as well, which can use some solid philosophical guidance against Islam.
What’s next for this guy, saying Christ was a wealthy tradesman?
Perhaps Francis needs the second coming of Martin Luther?
Have they LEGALIZED marijuana in the Vatican?
This Pope is truly confused.
this pope is about as far from authentic Catholicism as any pope has ever been.
Would you be surprised if he brought a supply of “the good stuff” with him from South America?
I just wish all these people would focus on God instead of some old guy who lives in a gold mansion in Rome.
Perhaps he has some inside word on al qaidas plans to fly a plane or two into the vatican, and is trying to buy them off?
The Pope is spreading propaganda about Islam and I find that disturbing. Priests in the Jesuit order are highly educated, so it's not like he doesn't know.
I am beginning to believe the Pope has bought into the PC garbage about Mooselims or he is stupid.
I wasn’t that happy with Benedict, but Francis doesn’t even seem to be Catholic. Benedict needs to come out of retirement.
We are just going to have to hunker down and get along without a “real” Pope for a few years.
he seems to have a habit of saying something stupid almost every time he opens his mouth.So....Freepers hate this Pope. This is pretty remarkable.
Just offering this as proof that I'm not making this up:
