Letters, National Post: Pope pandering to Islam

Pope Francis exchanges gifts with the Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, left, and his wife Mehriban Aliyeva, right, during a private audience at the Vatican this month. Ninety-three percent of Azerbaijanis are Muslim.

Surely the recognition of Palestine as a state should come with some conditions — for example, recognition by the Palestine Liberation Organization and its backers Israel is also a state. This would go a long way in lubricating the peace process.
John Krasznai, Burlington, Ont.

Given the long, tragic history of the Roman Catholic Church’s anti-semitism, the decision to recognize a state of Palestine reflects the inadequacy of the current pope.

I seriously doubt his intellectually far-superior predecessor, Benedict XVI, would have agreed to take this dreadfully misguided and deeply offensive step, whatever his personal views might be.
Joseph Berger, Toronto.

    From the moment I learned he is a Jesuit, I knew Pope Francis would spell trouble. It is not for nothing that Jesuits have been forcibly kicked out if several South American countries over the years. And when is Pope Francis going to answer in the World Court to outstanding charges of child trafficking against him? Hmm. Much to scratch one’s head over about the RC Church under a Marxist Jesuit pope.

    Very good letters and the writers raise valid points. Don’t expect such comments to be accepted at the CBC, Globe & Mail or any other so-called media.

  • How is it possible for the Pope to watch Christians being murdered by Muslims and not speak up?

    He is pathetic fool – at the time we need a real leader.

    • Ottawa Eyes

      Maybe he is afraid that he will be next if he doesn’t accept his status as a dhimmi?

    No more faggot priests. No more faggot bishops. No more faggot popes. No more. Enough.

    What is it with the west? We are blind set on cultural suicide.

  • simus1

    This is a deeply offensive pope who was elected by a group of very offensive left wing church politicians.
