Call the Cops! Archbishop Chaput: Sharia Law ‘Smothers’ Religious Minorities

In an address commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Vatican Decree on Religious Freedom earlier this month, the redoubtable Archbishop Chaput said that more than 70 percent of the world now lives with some form of religious coercion, and rather than getting better, the situation seems to be in decline.

With the radicalization of Islam in different parts of the world, the archbishop said, “persecution has grown worse.” While Sharia law “claims to protect religious minorities,” in practice, “it slowly smothers them,” he said.

Why do our politicians continue to lie about Islam?

    At first glance, I thought the headline said, “Call the Copts!” Raymond Ibrahim fully agrees with the archbishop.

    Can Chaput convince Pope Francis that Islam has to be stopped?
