Catholic Cardinal McCarrick Embraces Islam


Revelation 2:19-20, “‘I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first. But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray …”

When Christ returns in power and great glory Scripture lists the nations that He fights against by name, and every nation that is identified in Scripture is today an Islamic nation. Yet today we continue to see many Christian leaders of all denominations virtually “bowing down” to Islam by defending it. A few weeks ago I attended a service where a “Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” sermon was given, intimating how the violence against Christians in the Middle East today had nothing to do with Islam, only “extremists” hijacking it. When I asked afterwards if they had even read the Qur’an the response was, for all intents and purposes, that they had not. Sadly, this is all-too typical. Like those in authority over us, it’s high-time for Christian leaders to start picking up the Qur’an to actually read what it teaches before telling us what it doesn’t …

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘In the name of God, the Merciful and Compassionate,’ said McCarrick. That, of course, is the heading on 113 of the Qur’an’s 114 chapters. The only one that doesn’t begin with that is surat at-tawba, sura 9, which contains the exhortation to Muslims to fight against Jews and Christians until they ‘pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued’ (9:29). Cardinal McCarrick seems quite submissive already.

‘Catholic Cardinal McCarrick Embraces Islam,’ by Neil Munro, Daily Caller, September 11, 2014:

Catholic Cardinal Theodore McCarrick offered Islamic religious phrases and insisted that Islam shares foundational rules with Christianity, during a Sept. 10 press conference in D.C.

“In the name of God, the Merciful and Compassionate,” McCarrick said as he introduced himself to the audience at a meeting arranged by the Muslim Public Affairs Council. That praise of the Islamic deity is an important phrase in Islam, is found more than 100 times in the Koran, and is akin to the Catholic prayer, ”In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”

McCarrick next claimed that “Catholic social teaching is based on the dignity of the human person… [and] as you study the holy Koran, as you study Islam, basically, this is what Muhammad the prophet, peace be upon him, has been teaching.”…

“Has Cardinal McCarrick converted to Islam?” asked a scornful critic, Robert Spencer, the best-selling author of many books on Islam.

“‘Peace be upon him’ is a phrase Muslims utter after they say the name of [their reputed] prophet… [so] probably he is unaware of the unintended Islamic confession of faith he has just made,”said Spencer, who runs the Jihadwatch.org website.

McCarrick is wrong to say “that Islam teaches the dignity of every human person,“ Spencer said. “Actually it teaches a sharp dichotomy between the Muslims, [who are called] ‘the best of people’ and the unbelievers [are called] ‘the most vile of created beings,’” Spencer told TheDC.

“The Koran also says: ‘Muhammad is the apostle of Allah. Those who follow him are merciful to one another, harsh to the unbelievers,’” Spencer said.

The same warning came from Archbishop Amel Nona, who was head of Chaldean Catholic Archeparch of Mosul in Iraq. In a August comment made to Europeans, he said that “You think all men are equal, but that is not true: Islam does not say that all men are equal  [and] your values are not their values.”…

“We are together on this against evil, we are against killing, we are against destruction… God bless you in this work you do,” McCarrick said to the Muslim speakers, which included representatives from one group — the Islamic Society of North America — that was implicated in a conspiracy to smuggle funds to the Hamas terror group that recently launched another bombardment of thousands of rockets at Israeli Jews.

“We believe that Islam is a religion which helps people, not kills them… the Muslim community has always taught this,” McCarrick said….

Since early this year, the Islamic State group has killed and murdered thousands of Iraqis that don’t accept rule by the brutal Salafi variant of Islam. The victims include Shia Muslims, Christians and adherents of the pre-Christian Yazidi religion. Tens of thousands of non-Muslims have also been driven from their homes and fields.McCarrick, however, downplayed ISIS’s attack on Christians in Iraq, and expressed more concerns for Muslim victims of ISIS attacks. “The truth of the matter is in these terrible massacres of the Islamic state, most of the victims have been Muslims, most of them have not been Christians,” he told his Sept. 10 audience….

Spencer urged McCarrick to challenge his Muslim hosts. “Cardinal McCarrick, rather than indulge in this fond and ignorant wishful thinking, would have done better to have challenged his Muslim friends to match their lofty words with real action to combat the Islamic State and other Muslim persecutors of Christians,” Spencer said.McCarrick should have “asked them to institute programs in mosques and Islamic schools to teach against the literal meaning of the verses I quoted above and others like them, so that they no longer incite Muslims to violence,” in the U.S. or abroad, Spencer said.

    ISLAM IS SUBVERSIVE & OPPRESSIVE

    Liberals think that this is a freedom of religion issue, that Muslims just want to be friends and good citizens.

    It is indeed a freedom issue…for the rest of us, not for Muslims.

    While I’m not saying Muslims should be violated, I see nothing wrong with making them know they are unwelcome anywhere.

    They should be no more welcome into our midst than NAZIs or New Black Panthers or other subversive bigoted hate groups. This is not stereotyping. It is based on the core creeds of their common faith.

    Muslim obligation to kill us if we’re pagan, pass jizya if their religion dominates and we’re not Muslim, to delegate us to second class status or worse if we’re not a male Muslim, and to lie to us while trying to bring this to pass (taqiyya) is not conducive to friendship.

    Islam is subversive and tyrannical…allowing no equality of others. It abuses women, children and minorities. This gives us 100% the right to reject it and its free practice.

    Islam is all about what they call “submission.” Loosely translated, “Reject Islam and we’ll build a mosque on your house.”

    When Mecca drove Mohammed out for being a sex freak, he came back and slaughtered 30,000 Jews…on this they built Ramadan.
    Dome on the Rock celebrates more Jewish blood. Muslims claim (and many might believe) its from common threads of history but, uh, no. Muslims build holy sites where ever they win victory, like their rush to build a mosque at the Twin Towers site.

    The more important the holy site they conquer is to their enemies, the holier it is to them.

    And where ever Islam comes to dominate, other faiths are either subjected and repressed (Judaism, Zoroastrianism & Christianity,) or destroyed. (All the others.) Even Judaism and Christianity can be brutally destroyed by this manic “faith.”

    Islam, Submission, is violent and brutal, it is repressive, it is subversive.

    The rest of humanity is under no moral obligation to cater to Islam in any way, shape or form. And the Constitution, or any other law of Man, does not abrogate our right to reject those who work to subject us to tyranny. It is the right of self-defense and is beyond abrogation.
