Finally, some Words of Essence from a Pope!

From the time of my Youth, and in about the last 50 years, this is the FIRST TIME that a Pope has Spoken Sociological Truths. Kudos, Francis. Need More of this from You.

Hope Other community and religious heads, particularly in India, would have the gumption to admit this.

Came across the following site, reference below, with the title: ‘The Pope has a message for Christian Fundamentalists: You’re No Better than ISIS!‘ in Facebook this morning.

Do not agree with All the views presented there. But!

It starts with this:

The Pope gave liberals an early Christmas Present this week, on a flight back from Turkey…by drawing a parallel between Christian Fundamentalists and Islamic terror groups such as ISIS.

When a journalist attempted to draw the Pope into yet another condemnation of the world’s 2 billion Muslims on the basis of the actions of a few thousand – the pontiff dropped a logic bomb.

“You just can’t say that, just as you can’t say that all Christians are fundamentalists. We have our share of them (fundamentalists). All religions have these little groups,” Pope Francis said.

  1. It is about personal beliefs; what one interprets others on the same issue; and what he chooses to react on. However, even this is not enough when it comes to forming opinion on religion aand its followers.

  2. A lot of people don’t like the image that Pope Francis projects and they accuse him of being fake. I can sort of understand some peoples scepticism when considering what has come to light in recent years regarding the catholic church. However, I do think that he is genuine and a man of the people as is evidenced yet again by this quote. A previous pope may have made a comment in the way that a politician would, and although I think it is impossible for religious leaders not to be involved in politics in some shape or form, I think first and foremost it is more important to be real and human. I agree with you about hoping that other religious leaders admit the same, ultimately we want them to stop acting like politicians, ultimately we want them to be real and human.

    Thank you for sharing.
