Pope Francis wants us to have fraternity with Muslims:
Reflecting upon his recent apostolic journey to Morocco, Pope Francis said Wednesday that God desires a greater sense of fraternity among Catholics and Muslims as “brother children of Abraham.”“Some may ask, ‘But why does the pope visit the Muslims and not only the Catholics?’” Pope Francis said in St. Peter’s Square April 3.
“With Muslims, we are descendants of the same father, Abraham,” he said. “What God wants is fraternity between us in a special way,” he added, noting that this was the motive behind his travels.
Go here to read the rest. To be fair to the Pope, this type of rubbish was being proclaimed in the Vatican long before he became Pope. The Muslims can be called children of Abraham only if we allow them to claim that title due to the Koran, the book composed by Mohammed, and which contains an admixture of barely understood, by Mohammed, distorted Jewish and Christian history and teaching, combined with Arabic legends and traditional Arabian beliefs. In that fabulist tome we encounter fun house figures of Abraham and other personages of the Old and New Testament, who bear little relationship to their historical counterparts as set forth in the Old and the New Testaments. This would be similar to a Pope, in a nightmarish alternate reality where the Nazis kept power in Germany after World War II, and established a Nazi variant of Christianity, proclaiming centuries later that the Nazis were also “brother children” of Christ because of their belief in an Aryan Christ. The Church has always opposed lying, and calling the Muslims children of Abraham is a whopper of the first magnitude.
