Pope Francis Disagrees With Labeling Islam as Violent

Pope Francis Diasagrees with Labeling Islam as Violent

Pope Francis told journalists during the July 31 papal flight to Rome following his apostolic journey to Poland, “I do not believe it is right to identify Islam with violence. This is not right and it is not true.” The Pope expressed his belief that every religion has its fundamentalist groups, including Catholicism.

He goes on to say, “There are violent Catholics. If I speak of Islamic violence, I must speak of Catholic violence.” Pope Francis’ remarks came in response to a question put by a journalist regarding the murder of a French priest at the hands of Islamist militants, an attack which Pope Francis condemned.  See full story…catholicnewsagency.com
