Jesuit scholar Father Boulad, turned against Pope Francis for going easy on Islam. Boulad explained that Islam is “an open-ended declaration of war against non-Muslims”. He pointed to a large number of very violent quotes in the Koran.
“Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.” Koran 2:191 “Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.” Koran 9:123 “When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.” Koran 9:5 “Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.” Koran 3:85 “The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.”… Koran 9:30. These are just a few of his many examples.
He also pointed to the violence in Muhammad’s life including owning and trading slaves, beheading 800 Jews, ordering women to be stoned to death for adultery, and encouraging his followers to rape enslaved women. He went on to attack the Pope and many civilizations for their awful “political correctness”.
“It seems to me that — on the pretext of openness, tolerance and Christian charity — the Catholic Church has fallen into the trap of the liberal left ideology which is destroying the West. Anything that does not espouse this ideology is immediately stigmatized in the name of “political correctness”. Many think that a certain number of your positions are aligned with this ideology and that, from complacency, you go from concessions to concessions and compromises in compromises at the expense of the truth,” wrote Boulad in a letter.
“The West is in an ethical and moral debacle, both religious and spiritual. And it is not by relativizing the painful reality that these societies will be helped to emerge from their disarray. By defending at all costs Islam and seeking to exonerate it from the horrors committed every day in its name, one ends up betraying the truth,” wrote Boulad. Read his full interview here.
