The Fifth Crusade ? – Pope Francis Calls For Armed Christian Crusades Against Islam….

Rut Roh, what are the progs gonna do now ?   The libs were in a generally swoony state with the “progressive” Pope Francis.   However, now he’s calling up round #5 of the modern crusades – oh my.

Pope Francis ILOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - You know a situation is bad when a pope calls for an armed response. Pope Francis, widely appreciated as a practical and realistic man, is not just calling for a cease-fire or negotiations. Instead, he is inviting an armed response to the terrorism of the Islamic State.

Such a call is virtually unprecedented for a pontiff in modern times, but our age is an extraordinary one and the Islamic State has no interest in a bargaining table. Instead, the Islamic State is bent on genocide and barbarism, ruthlessly exterminating anyone who opposes them.

On Sunday, Pope Francis said he held “dismay and disbelief” over what is happening in Iraq. He called the Islamic State fighters terrorists and said there was a need for “a professional, well-equipped army.” “The situation is going from bad to worse,” he warned.

Meanwhile, Chaldean Patriarch Louis Sako of Baghdad said, “There is a need of international support and a professional, well-equipped army. The situation is going from bad to worse.”

Pope Francis and Patriarch Sako are not the only clerics calling for swift and decisive action to end the genocide in Iraq. The Episcopal Vicar of Iraq, Canon Andrew White, managed to visit the town of Qaraqosh under cover and personally assess the situation in that community following Islamic State capture.

His words are chilling. “Today, Qaraqosh stands 90 per cent empty, desecrated by the gunmen of the fanatical Islamic State terror group now in control. The majority of the town’s 50,000 people have fled, fearing that, like other Christians in this region, they will be massacred.

“The militants, in a further act of sacrilege, have established their administrative posts in the abandoned churches.”

Canon White reported that one woman had her finger hacked off after she could not remove her wedding ring fast enough. A caretaker of one of White’s parish churches in the community said his youngest son, aged five, was hacked in half as he watched.

A child, just five years old, hacked in half alive, before his father. The boy happened to be named Andrew, after the vicar himself.

The atrocities are real. The genocide is real. That the press barely reports on them is absolutely baffling. However, even the most religious, peace-loving figures are recognizing that this is not a usual evil. Normally, conflicts arise because of ancient grievances and they can be talked over and hashed out. Warring factions tire of burying their sons and eventually dialogue and other pressures forces peace.

However, the Islamic State has recruited fighters from most of the world’s nations and more arrive every day. They are motivated by an aggressive, rabid interpretation of Islamic scriptures. Most notably, they are consumed with bloodlust and willing to commit and publicize every atrocity. This attracts sadistic men from across the Islamic world to their cause who commit even more atrocities.  (read more)

    Oh yes, things just got a litlle more interestinger. The government already has Christians on the watch lists. Now with a call to arms? I may need to work from home for the next… I don’t know… “while?” I could never be confused for being Muslim, but the stray bullets concern me. There are a LOT of people who might be confused and the first thought that comes to mind is, if they organize a group to go into Iraq, how will they be able to tell a Christian from a Muslim there? What’s more, in addition to physical appearance issues, Islam permits Mulsims to lie to non-Muslims to further their cause.

    Catholic Online reissued the article, attributing the “call to arms” to the Chaldean Patriarch. They added this statement at the beginning of the article:

    “Earlier we posted a misquote from our sources. We originally attributed the statement ‘a professional well-equipped army’ to Pope Francis. This quote is correctly attributed to the Chaldean Patriarch, Louis Sako

    Pope Francis has joined with Christians facing genocide in Iraq and Syria, calling upon the world to join him in ‘Prayer and Action’ to bring peace to the troubled region. Calling for international action, he has asked the world to ‘stop these crimes’…”

      Yes. I wish that this were true, but in the official Vatican reports the closest I could find was this from Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Holy See’s Permanent Observer to the United Nations in Geneva, speaking on Vatican Radio:

      “At this moment, we hope the voice that is surging from different Christian and religious communities, from moderate Muslims, from people of good will around the world, may find the response of concrete humanitarian assistance that is provided for the Christians in northern Iraq as well as some political and even effective military protection.” So, “even effective military protection,” well, that’s better than nothing.

      But even that baby step into reality is tempered by the usual: “I think, in the long run, what is needed is a dialogue of reconciliation and the acceptance of diversity in the different political and cultural contexts of the Middle East, so that a person is considered a citizen with equal rights and equal duties for the states, free to associate with other people who are of the same faith without being catalogued as a minority.” Sigh. Do they not realize they’re facing Satan on the rampage. Unlike moonbats, the Catholic Church really does believe in the existence of evil; it does perform exorcism. Jesus cast out demons, he didn’t dialogue with them and accept their diversity.

    For two hundred years Knights Templars were Christian monks who became warrior knights and fought muslims in the tradition of King Leonidas and the Spartans who opposed the Persian Xerxes. Like the Spartans, the Knights Templars were highly skilled warriors who would fight against any odds to do as much damage as possible to the enemy even when no victory was possible. They were the elite “special forces” of that era.

    Now the pope should call another Jacques de Molay……….Oh wait……

      It was simply a prayer service for peace with Jews, Christians and Muslims, speaking in that chronological order. There was no appeasement, except perhaps in the assumption of a good faith desire for peace on the part of the Muslim delegate, PA’s Mahmoud Abbas. I had negative expectations toward it going in, but it turned out to be a lovely service, and I suppose one can, and maybe should, always hope for hearts to be turned. I did think Abbas looked crafty & belligerent, and Peres looked weary, resigned, not hopeful.

    But the first step is to secure your own base. Otherwise, anything we do will be met with attacks from within. We must begin with the Ferdinand and Isabella Solution. In 1492 they expelled all Muslims from Spain. Likewise we must expel all Muslims from American territory and forbid any from reentering. Those who attempt to remain covertly should be hunted down and eliminated. Mosques, Madrassahs, and other Muslim structures, including financial ones should be seized. Then we can think about retaking the Holy Land.

    “On Sunday, Pope Francis said he held “dismay and disbelief” over what is happening in Iraq. He called the Islamic State fighters terrorists and said there was a need for “a professional, well-equipped army.” “The situation is going from bad to worse,” he warned.”

    By expressing his understanding that a “professional, well-quipped army” is needed, Pope Francis has acknowledged what we have been saying for some time now:

    Islam is a pseudo-religion born of men with the darkest of hearts, and their intention is to put to the sword all of those who will not submit to their evil ideology. There can be no peace with them because It’s like trying to negotiate with a venomous snake,or a ravenous shark. You simply can’t do it Their nature is to bring death to all who resist them. Even to their own kind. Theirs is an ideology that only exists as a pestilence on mankind, and that travels on the hooves of the pale horse called death.

    The people of Israel know this all too well, as they battle for their very existence against this dark force. The same dark force which Obama wants Iraqis embrace with “Inclusionism” and that will consume their peoples and plunge their country into total evil. No president in our entire history has failed to oppose this type of evil, yet Obama actually embraces it. And it takes a real “man of peace” like Pope Francis to stand up and say “Enough! Cast these devils out!”

    Pray that the world awakens,before the shroud of darkness descends upon us all.

    The only way to win over evil is to come against it like the Lord tells us to. It will take Christians to do it. I firmly believe we need to rid America of Islam first. Otherwise we are still at risk while we try to come against it elsewhere. We have too many jihadists right here in America. Some of them have crossed our southern borders. I know someone who has been following some of them and their every move. Our government knows they are here but this administration has basically welcomed them with open arms. We should have never let ISIS get so far advanced. They pose a very real threat to America. Iraq and Syria is just the beginning for them.

      Yeah the clear message to muslims should be if living under islamic law or sharia is what they want or think is desirable, then they should pack their bags and go live in some islamic state where is their idea of paradise, while they still can, and not remain in the U.S. because we are never going to allow that kind of oppression here. They need to git while the gittin’ is good. Don’t make any lame protests about any religious diversity and freedom as a deception about what islam is seeking, because everybody is wise to the tyranny and oppression that is its creed, dogma, and agenda and Americans will not tolerate any of it, not ever, in the U.S., so for their own safety and happiness the best thing that they can do is leave. Whatever encouragement to travel to a new home they may require, they should receive such encouragement in plentiful supply.

        • In your first comment you did not give any indication you were asking about modern crusades; you asked only why this one was called the fifth crusade. As I recall from reading about the Crusades, they were all numbered based on how many had happened previously irregardless of the time that had passed between them. IIRC, the fourth crusade was some number of years later after the first three, which ran in fairly close succession. Therefore, if that patterns holds true to modern day, this is the fifth for no other reason than that there have already been four crusades. I haven’t heard of any moderns calls for a crusade until this one, and in the politically correct culture these days, I’m sure we would heard of them had they happened because some mainstream pundit would be condemning it. I may be wrong, but that’s what I know based on my readings. Someone more familiar with the history of the Crusades better than I might be able to clarify things for both of us.

    GOOD CHRISTIAN MEN AND WOMEN!

    Is it the will of God that all we do is pray and have faith, but never do any works to justify ourselves? Yes, we can talk, we can be outraged, but how many of us are really willing to leave our families, our jobs, our futures, to die for those who have no ability to defend themselves?

    YOU ARE FREE TO SAY “SOMEONE ELSE CAN DO IT!”

    But who is “Someone else”? The Russians? The Iranians? What news do you have about Russians who are busy in Ukraine, or the Iranians who care more for the Shia?

    Ladies and Gentlemen, what will you say, if you find yourself in Heaven, when asked why you did not help those who begged for help while still on Earth? When you had the ability to purchase a gun, organize, and fight for the sake of those Christians?

    “Well, I don’t want to leave my children without a father.”
    Their Father in Heaven will care for them.

    “I am poor, and I can’t even feed myself, let alone foreigners!”
    God will provide.

    “Someone else can do it.”
    That someone is you. That someone is me, and that “someone else” is anyone with a conscience but actually have the courage, no, not the sort that passes for “courage” nowadays, I mean, the real willingness despite all fears and worries to give their life for people who know nothing but oppression but are now on the verge of extinction.

    Please, good Christians: You were baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, Who Is One God- blasphemers deny this fact of God, and proceed to murder unjustly those who believe in Him.

    Everyday, Muslims train their children to fire AK-47s. What does your child do? Children in the Islamic State are taught to die for their Caliph- have you ever told your child that when the time comes, we may need to die for Our King, Jesus Christ, because of our of love for Him, Who Died for the sake of us, wretched sinners?

    Put aside the childish notion of Jesus as a kind and inoffensive “moral teacher” and raise up the Cross, that instrument of Salvation! He is a sign of contradiction, hated even in our time! If you love Him, follow Him!
