Jihad Watch: Has Vatican newspaper converted to Islam?

Is the Pope Catholic?

The Vatican daily L’Osservatore Romano ran a piece with the subtitle, “Shooting in Texas at an exhibition of blasphemous cartoons.”

Blasphemous? They’re blasphemous according to Islamic law, because Islam asserts that Muhammad is a prophet. So is the Vatican now submitting to Islamic law?

Merriam-Webster defines “blasphemy” as “great disrespect shown to God or to something holy.” So does the Vatican now think Muhammad is holy? Has L’Osservatore Romano converted to Islam? Is Muhammad now considered a prophet by the Catholic Church, like Isaiah or Jeremiah or Ezekiel? Will he get a feast day on the Roman Catholic calendar?…

    When interfaith outreach goes too far it becomes surrender.

    The pope is not a catholic, he is a Marxist. Any other questions?

      To be precise, Flaky Frank is one third Italian-Argentinian, one third idiot, one third marxist.

    Is the Vatican going to round up every copy of the Divine Comedy and have a huge bonfire in St Peter’s Square? Dante put Mohammed in the Eighth Circle of Hell where he belongs:


  • marty_p

    It drives me crazy when any mainstream media call him “The Prophet Mo”… he’s the MUSLIM prophet. Calling him simply “the prophet” lends respect and credibility the child molesting death cult founding pedophile doesn’t deserve.

    • Well, to be fair, they always refer to Jesus as “The Saviour”, don’t they?

      • Justin St.Denis

        Who is the “they” to whom you are referring?

        • Why the media of course. I’m responding to marty_p’s comment.

          • Justin St.Denis

            I know you were responding to Marty, but I have never seen Jesus referred to in the media in that way (i.e. The Saviour). At least not in my adult lifetime. Except in a “Religion” column, and I am not sure they publish those anymore. What newspaper does this? I have never seen the Christian Jesus referred to as “The Saviour” in any MSM outlet. Perhaps in smaller town papers? I am only asking because the MSM available here in SW Ontario sure don’t refer to Jesus with such deference.

          • Justin St.Denis

            OMG! I must have been having a “duh” moment. I didn’t get that. 🙂

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        Oh, no, its always, “The Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ”. Without fail. :rolleyes

  • ontario john

    Gee, if the Pope keeps sucking up to islam and Castro, Micheal Coren will be coming back to the Catholic Church.

    • Icebow

      I wish Sun News were resurrected, so he could come back to that,

  • Islam is already a heresy so…

    • Justin St.Denis

      Keen observation, and true, too!

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    “Has Vatican newspaper converted to Islam?”
    Or are they just scared fartless of the you-know-who’s? I’m thinking the latter.

  • Speaksvolumes

    I think a lot of Catholics (and other religious groups) would like to see blasphemy laws enacted and it’s easier to have Muslims do their dirty work for them.

    • Blacksmith

      Maybe the church hierarchy, I doubt to many on the street Catholics or other Christians would, I may be wrong but that is my opinion.

  • I knew priests were meant to be celibate, but I didn’t realize they were actually required to chop them off.
