Peace loving muslims on the Pope

Do you recall my entry on their cartoons? Here is another round of elegies of the Pope presented by those who embrace the religion of peace. If anyone needed any proof of precisely why the Pope had to say the things he did, here it is (biretta tip to Amy o{]:¬) ):

What do the captions say?

The script in red calls for the Pope’s beheading. The rest of the translation:

"Swine and servant of the cross, worships a monkey on a cross, hateful evil man, stoned Satan, may Allah curse him, blood-sucking vampire."

    Here’s a caption they can put in their hookah and smoke:

    Remember Godfrey.

    Deus le vult!

  2. Séamas says:

    It doesn’t do much good to say something if you turn around and take it all back.

    In any case, the pope is in serious danger now. Let us pray for him constantly:

    Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius.

    May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies.

    In my humble opinion this image is tasteless and unworthy of the dignity of this site. If the pope is in danger he put himself there. May God protect him!

    Thanks for posting this. It certainly betrays what Islam thinks. The Holy Father did not intend what resulted from his address. The image is indeed tasteless, but we must understand the Muslim hatred of Christianity – this illustrates it perfectly.

  5. Proklos Grammatikos says:

    I cannot see how an ugly image can betray what Islam thinks. Besides, let’s not lose perspective. The Muslim hatred of Christianity will never equal the Jewish hatred of it. The Jews up till this day do not recognize Jesus in any way at all not as the Messiah not even as a prophet in the great tradition of Hebrew prophets. Their failure to recognize the Messiah when He first came does not bode well for their recognizing him when He comes again. Most recently,the Jewish state has engaged in a campaign of wonton destruction in Lebanon, the last outpost of Christianity in the region since they unilaterally usurped Jerusalem as their capitol. I do not recall that Israel took especial care not to bomb the living daylights out of Christians as well as the fighters from Hizbollah that they claimed they were pursuing.

  6. Solitudinus says:

    “If the pope is in danger he put himself there.”

    Yes. The Holy Father did indeed put himself in danger.

    He expressed his faith that-

    “Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul.”


    “The decisive statement in this argument against violent conversion is this: not to act in accordance with reason is contrary to God’s nature.”


    I pray that I and others will have the courage of conviction to put ourselves in such danger by expressing such faith.

    And if we do, I sincerely doubt that any Jews will threaten to cut of our heads.

    And if we refuse to submit to such threats, I doubt that any Jews will turn themselves into suicide bombs to kill us.

    The reality of violence is tasteless and ugly.

    So is irrational hatred.

    Such as bigotry.

    But there is dignity in the Truth and Wisdom and Love.

    May Pope Benedict XVI have a long life teaching this faith.

  7. Jordan Potter says:

    Oh yeah, let’s not notice Muslim attacks on the faith — after all, it’s those horrid Jews who are the real enemy. “Muslims are killing Christians! Let’s get those dirty Jews!” Perfectly reasonable.

    Really, Proklos, do you seriously think you’re going to help solve this problem by 1) blaming the Pope and 2) bringing up Jewish misbehavior completely out of the blue? Deflecting the present animosity onto the Jewish people, especially when there can be absolutely no logical reason to bring up the Jews in this context, only makes matters worse. That’s a very, very bad habit that many Christians have suffered from for centuries, but Jewish misbehavior or Jewish lack of belief in Christianity has got nothing to do with the current dangerous situation, and distracting ourselves from Muslim violence by thinking about something bad that some Jews have done will never solve the problem of Muslim violence.

  8. Jordan Potter says:

    “Besides, let’s not lose perspective.”

    That’s exactly what will happen if we think the existence of non-Christian Jews is a bigger problem than fanatical Muslims who are presently engaged in violent endeavors to spread their religion.

    “The Muslim hatred of Christianity will never equal the Jewish hatred of it.”

    Most Jews have no hatred of Christianity, in the sense actively trying to get people to stop being Christian. Believing that Christianity is false is not the same thing as hating Christianity. There is simply no organised Jewish campaign to stamp out the Christianity religion or to spread the Jewish religion. Judaism, of course, doesn’t believe that all humans must be Jews, so they naturally do not seek converts.

    “Their failure to recognize the Messiah when He first came does not bode well for their recognizing him when He comes again.”

    I’m not worried about it. According to Saints Peter and Paul, the Fathers of the Church, and the Magisterium of the Church, the second coming of Christ will be preceded by the general conversion of the Jews.

    Regarading Islam’s photo depiction of the Holy Father, I call to mind the Third Secret Of Fatima released in the year 2000, which included a Pope who would be murdered. It makes me wonder.

    Our beloved Pope spoke the truth and definately carries the cross daily.
    We need to pray for him all the time. Thank God for Pope Benedict.
