"Pope" Francis will not be rivaled in his capitulation to the monstrous darkness that is Islam. Karol Wotyla aka "Pope" John Paul II (who Frankie will make a "saint" this year), kissed the Koran as a sign of respect. It is a sign of heresy, indeed, apostasy to do so. It is now customary for Modernist heretics to give "respect" to manifest falsehoods. To be civil is one thing, to show signs of "respect" that are reserved for the sacred in Catholicism is another. JPII doesn't have to incite a world incident by having the vile Koran burned, but he shouldn't kiss it either. He was following his heresy of Modernism where truth is found in degrees. The Koran has some truth in it (like belief in monotheism) so let's kiss it. On that same line of reasoning, one could kiss the "Satanic Bible" as it has some truth there as well.
Now Jorge Bergoglio takes it one step further, bowing to a Mohammedan queen. Canonists and theologians teach that external heresy consists in dictis vel factis — not only in words, but also in “signs, deeds, and the omission of deeds.” (Merkelbach, Summa Theologiae Moralis, 1:746.). Bowing is performed numerous times by the Priest at the True Mass. There are simple bows and profound bows. The priest will bow to the Crucifix, Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, at the Holy Name, etc. Bowing to a queen of a Mohammedan state is morally outrageous and openly heretical. A simple handshake (which is done at the Novus Bogus, but not the True Mass) would suffice as being polite. Of course neither Bergoglio nor Wotyla asked the Mohammedans to convert. And why should they? The heretical Vatican II document Nostra Aetate has this to say about Islam:
"The Church regards with esteem also the Moslems. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all- powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth,(5) who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God. Though they do not acknowledge Jesus as God, they revere Him as a prophet. They also honor Mary, His virgin Mother; at times they even call on her with devotion. In addition, they await the day of judgment when God will render their deserts to all those who have been raised up from the dead. Finally, they value the moral life and worship God especially through prayer, almsgiving and fasting.
Since in the course of centuries not a few quarrels and hostilities have arisen between Christians and Moslems, this sacred synod urges all to forget the past and to work sincerely for mutual understanding and to preserve as well as to promote together for the benefit of all mankind social justice and moral welfare, as well as peace and freedom."
There can be neither peace nor freedom where the Only Prince of Peace is excluded. He alone is the Way, the Truth, and the Light. What does the Koran have to say about Christianity? From the website www.thereligionofpeace.com, we find very good info that you can cross reference on your own with an English version of the Koran:
"The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran. The context of violent passages is more ambiguous than might be expected of a perfect book from a loving God, however this can work both ways. Most of today's Muslims exercise a personal choice to interpret their holy book's call to arms according to their own moral preconceptions about justifiable violence. Apologists cater to their preferences with tenuous arguments that gloss over historical fact and generally do not stand up to scrutiny. Still, it is important to note that the problem is not bad people, but bad ideology.Unfortunately, there are very few verses of tolerance and peace to abrogate or even balance out the many that call for nonbelievers to be fought and subdued until they either accept humiliation, convert to Islam, or are killed. Muhammad's own martial legacy - and that of his companions - along with the remarkable stress on violence found in the Quran have produced a trail of blood and tears across world history.
"So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them." According to this verse, the best way of staying safe from Muslim violence is to convert to Islam (prayer (salat) and the poor tax (zakat) are among the religion's Five Pillars). This popular claim that the Quran only inspires violence within the context of self-defense is seriously challenged by this passage as well, since the Muslims to whom it was written were obviously not under attack. Had they been, then there would have been no waiting period (earlier verses make it a duty for Muslims to fight in self-defense, even during the sacred months). The historical context is Mecca after the idolaters were subjugated by Muhammad and posed no threat. Once the Muslims had the power, they violently evicted those unbelievers who would not convert.
