Pope Francis Just Compared the Great Commission to Jihad

Yes, you read that right. The leader of the Roman Catholic Church, the Pontiff who speaks for 1 billion Christians, said that Jesus’s call to “make disciples of all nations” is equivalent to the Islamic conquest of nations following the death of Mohammed. This conquest is a primary motivation for radical Islamic terrorism today, and the biggest Christian leader said “the same idea of conquest” is in the Great Commission in the Gospel of Matthew.

    What would he do different if he was trying to ruin the Catholic Church?

      Put the lid down after he flushed the toilet?

  • Shebel

    I guess there is not much chance of any crazed Jihadis killing this asshole?
    One can always Hope.

    • BillyHW

      The smart jihadis know they have an ally.

  • Christians have their own form of “jihad” or warfare — except it’s spiritual. We don’t behead fellow humans, we behead demons in the spiritual realm through prayer. And nobody gets hurt!

    Maybe the Pope failed to notice that “insignificant” difference.

    Well, at least bears still poop in the woods…

      I’d like to ask the pope if he has a problem with shit sticking to his fur.

    Between- a traitorous Pope for the Catholics , A traitorous Bitch leading the Germans,
    A traitorous Mulatto leading the USA , A Pretty Pussy leading Canada–

    We are ALL Fucked.

    He needs to see a neurologist. He needs to be certified. Or maybe he is at the beginning stages of dementia.

    • It wasn’t until Fidel Castro got dementia that he started to make any sense.

    “Pope Evita, when you are finished your Patsy Cline bit, there are more feet that need washing and kissing.”
    (What a crazy perve.)

  • Justin St.Denis

    Every time Pope Evita opens his mouth, he seems to succeed only in changing feet.

    What did he actually say, in context. And scoundrel can take a paragraph out of context and twist it into something vile. Both Leftist and Rightist scoundrels have been twisting Frank’s words since he was elevated. They are desperately trying to fit him into their boxes. I don’t trust anything said about him unless I have drilled down to the original transcript from a Vatican source. But I saw it on the Internet, so it must be true.

      What you say is basically true, but really anyone should know that ANY favourable comparison of juhad and the Great Commision is not going to translate well no matter what the context and given his past positions it indicates a pattern.

      His Holiness should be much more careful with his public statements and just generally shut up.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Jesuits cannot shut up any more than an SJW can shut up, since SHUTTING YOU DOWN is what they are all about.

  • Spatchcocked

    Yup…..wonderful childhood years….going to the movies gorging on popcorn and coke….I remember the most rib tickling pants wetting laffathons were the series of movies about Francis the Talking Mule.
    Francis fancied himself the General of a battalion of army mules……hilarious…..
    I’m wetting my pants this very moment as I write and chortle.

  • Spatchcocked

    I haven’t chortled so much in decades…

  • Spatchcocked

    An interesting fact….it is impossible to write a representation of the “chortle” sound.
    Life is full of mysteries isn’t it? Makes you think eh?

  • Spatchcocked

    Yes….Francis…….a name to conjure with.

    Odd – don’t remember any passages from Matthew enjoining Christians to kill or enslave non-Christians. Am I missing something?

    As a Protestant who’s still protesting, he’s the best gift ever. Take a Borgia, lose the fanaticism, manliness, and the bloodshed and get Jorge.

  • Exile1981

    I’m pretty sure Mathew didn’t call for beheading people who refused to convert.

    • Alain

      You’re right and he also left out a lot of other things: raping infidels and sex slaves for example.

  • Clausewitz

    This Pope makes me proud that I’m a Lutheran.
