Church Militant speaks with Robert Spencer

DETROIT ( – A prominent Islamic expert is comparing the bishops’ silence on terrorism to sex abuse cover-up. Robert Spencer, an Islamic terror expert and author of 16 books on Islam, released an editorial Sunday excoriating the U.S. bishops’ actions to punish clergy and schoolteachers who speak out against Islam, including Spencer himself.

“The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops moves actively and swiftly to silence and demonize voices that tell the truth about the Muslim persecution of Christians,” Spencer noted, naming various bishops who’ve refused him, as well as other Muslim critics, a platform in their dioceses.

    We need to purge the clergy of all homosexuals.

    • Watchman

      Will that involve the interfaith religious assistance of devout muslims and tall buildings? Just asking.

      • BillyHW

        Only if we don’t fix the problem ourselves first.

      Gay clergy is a symptom, not the root cause. Need to get rid of modernism to solve problem.

      If you mandate celibacy among your priests then why are you surprised that some deviant behaviour will squirt out?

      • Felix_Culpa

        Red herring. Or rather two red herrings. (1) Sexual activity can indeed be controlled. (2) Celibacy does not cause you to change the object of your attractions.

          Adam Carolla says that when you are organizing a summer camp for the kids you don’t want the guy who volunteers immediately.
          He is suspect.
          You want to drag the guy into it who has the least inclination to be there because he will be the safest bet for taking care of your children.
          And if you have to bribe him with beer it’s better.

  • Islam is a heresy. I thought bishops knew that.

  • Alain

    Spencer is spot on concerning these so-called bishops. Disgusting, but then the so-called pope comes to mind and I begin to understand the problem.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Seems to me the Catholic clergy have turned into ignorant of their own history, testosterone free, suicidal, cassock wearing , nannies. They should be providing a vigorous resistance to Islam, not making accommodations to it.
