Bishop born in Muslim country says Church has responsibility to speak out against Islamic militancy

The Catholic Church has “both a great opportunity and also a great responsibility” to speak out against the tide of Islamic militancy and the global persecution of Christians, according to Michael Nazir-Ali, the former Anglican bishop of Rochester, England.

Many people, he claimed, including Evangelicals with no historic affection towards the Catholic Church, are now looking to Rome for leadership…

…Bishop Nazir-Ali’s wariness of Islam stretches back decades. Appointed Bishop of Raiwind in 1984 when he was just 35, he fled from Pakistan to the United Kingdom in 1986 when his life was in danger from Muslim militants…


Not going to happen — the Pope is clearly not in agreement with such an approach.
