Has the Pope Abandoned Europe to Islam?

To scroll the list of Pope Francis’s apostolic trips — Brazil, South Korea, Albania, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Ecuador, Cuba, United States, Mexico, Kenya, Uganda, Philippines — one could say that Europe is not exactly at the top of his agenda.

The two previous pontiffs both fought for the cradle of Christendom. Pope John Paul II took on Communism by toppling the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain. Benedict XVI took on “the dictatorship of relativism” (the belief that truth is in the eye of the beholder) and bet everything on re-evangelizing the continent by traveling through it (he visited Spain three times) and in speeches such as the magnificent ones at Regensburg, where he spoke bluntly about the threat of Islam, and the German Bundestag, where he warned the gathered politicians against declining religiosity and “sacrificing their own ideals for the sake of power.”

      Somebody needs to wipe that smile off his treasonous face. The only thing that makes him smile is Communism & Islam.

  • Flyboy

    This Pope is ignorant of Islam and endangers the West with his fanciful ideas of religious harmony.

    • Clausewitz

      No, I think he is fully aware of what he is doing. He is a South American Socialist/Communist who hate western civilization above all else.
