Pope Francis arrives in Cairo seeking to mend ties with Islam

Pope Francis arrives in Cairo on Friday hoping to mend ties with Islamic religious leaders just as Egypt’s ancient Christian community faces unprecedented pressure from Islamic State militants who have threatened to wipe it out.

    It’s high time the Pope apologize to Islam’s leaders for all the terrible things the Christians have done to Muslims in Egypt.

    Where does Pope Francis get the idea that there has ever been peace between Islam and Christianity. I would think that the Millions of Christians enslaved and murdered by Islam over the past 1300 years might be an indicator of reality.

      Frank is a socialist. They don’t do reality.

    There’s only one way to say this, the pope is a fucking moron. There are no ties to mend between good and evil.

  • Dana Garcia

    Francis is a spineless ignoramus. He is supposed to be a voice for catholic Christians, not an apologist for the religion’s historic enemy.

    • Frances

      He’s also out of South America and probably never learned the history of the Church in Europe, the middle East, and northern Africa.

    When I grow up someday–
    I want to be a Catholic.
    Not every day that you get a Paedophile to forgive your sins.

    Course ,on the other extreme, I could PRAY to one 5 times a day .
    -There is just something about Islam—

    Or ,I could just stay with all my Sins and be a Presbyterian.

  • Shebel

    How dare Christians defend themselves ?
    This is unadulterated ‘Islamophobia’.

  • Shebel

    No Islamist will ever behead this useless POPE.

  • Alain

    I can only state that I most certainly do NOT pray to the same god, never have and never will, as Muslims. That is one huge porky.

    • Shebel

      And here I thought that there was only One GOD.
      I guess some people Pray , over and over and over again–
      To the fake one.

        Their Allah is a demon, a fallen angel, possibly Satan himself.
