Pope Francis has signed an interesting, yes that is the term, document with The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed Al-Tayyeb.  Oakes Spalding at Mahound’s Paradise does the honors:


The Vatican just issued a “Document” to mark the current “Apostolic Journey of His Holiness Pope Francis to the United Arab Emirates”.

It’s called “A Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together” and it’s jointly signed by “His Holiness Pope Francis” and “The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed Al-Tayyeb.”

As the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University in Cairo, Sheik Al-Tayyeb is arguably the world’s pre-eminent Muslim scholar.

He also is clearly on record (see below) as endorsing the punishment of death for apostates from Islam.

Notably, the current Document includes these lines:

Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;

Has Al-Tayyeb changed his mind? Does he now not believe in death to apostates, though he publicly reaffirmed that at least as recently as three years ago?
Are flying pigs halal?
Mahound’s Paradise wrote on this issue in 2016, during some of the Vatican’s initial dalliances with the wily Al-Tayyeb. We reprint that post in full, here:

Go here to read the rest.  In the Document signed by the Pope we have this passage:
Moreover, we resolutely declare that religions must never incite war, hateful attitudes, hostility and extremism, nor must they incite violence or the shedding of blood.
Well take that Pope Urban II!  The Pope by this declaration seems to be condemning the Crusades root and branch, a movement that endured for centuries with the enthusiastic initiative of the Church.
The document itself is filled with feel good platitudes void of any substance.  For example, what precisely does this mean, if it means anything at all:
Dialogue among believers means coming together in the vast space of spiritual, human and shared social values and, from here, transmitting the highest moral virtues that religions aim for. It also means avoiding unproductive discussions;
Then we have this:
The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings.
So much for the Great Commission given by Christ to His Church.
PopeWatch has no doubt that The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed Al-Tayyeb, takes none of this Bomfog (Nelson Rockefeller’s immortal phrase “The brotherhood of Man, under the Fatherhood of God!”)   seriously.  Unfortunately, PopeWatch also has no doubt that the Pope does take this tripe seriously.

  1. Pope Chastisement doesn’t even take himself seriously. There is no chance he would include traditional Catholics in his peon to the rights of the diversity of “believers”. Just like Karl Marx failed his own kids while pretending to have the answer for the well being of everyone else’s, the pope has no intention of applying his own bromide to his tradition loving sheep.

  2. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God

    What’s that even mean? God made those religions, God doesn’t care, Religion is a swell creative invention by man? It seems to be putting the finishing touches on ‘One religion: as good as another.’

  3. “The fatherhood of God, the brotherhood of man and the neighborhood of Boston.”

    Or in this case, Recoleta.
