The following comes from a September 4 Christian Daily article by Lorraine Caballero :
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has named Pope Francis as its number one enemy and has criticized the Catholic Church leader for pursuing “dialogue with moderate Islam.”
In its monthly publication Dabiq, ISIS described Pope Francis as a “non-believer” and accused him of defending homosexuals. The terror group previously released a video illustrating the end of the world, which suggests that the group is planning to assassinate the pontiff, The Express reports.
Despite the threats from ISIS, Pope Francis previously refused to heed advice to wear a bulletproof vest because he did not want to lose contact with the people. The threat prompted the Vatican to ramp up security around the city.
In the latest rant from ISIS, the militant group slammed the Pope for “seeking dialogue with moderate Islam” including Arab preacher Ahmed al-Tayeb of the Islamic university Al-Azhar in Cairo, Egypt. The Islamic State accused the imam of apostasy and criticized him for calling Christianity a “faith of love and peace.”
Meanwhile, Chaldean Patriarch Mar Louis Raphaël Sako told Asia News that the threats against Pope Francis are part of the group’s propaganda to pressure the West. He explained that ISIS does not understand the difference between the secular state and Christianity, which is represented by the Vatican.
“They have in mind a plan for a theocratic nation, based on Islam, mixed with basic ignorance,” Patriarch Sako said. “They believe that Christians have a theocratic state, which is the Vatican.”
Look folks how similar the denunciations of ISIS against Francis with those here who belittle him: that Francis supports homosexuals, that he seeks dialogue with Muslims. How uncanny. And also uncanny is Patriarch Seko’s characterization of those who denounce Francis: that theirs are thoughts “mixed with basic ignorance.” How hilarious.
Let us all pray for the Holy Father’s safety.
Let us also pray for the complete destruction of Islam….an enemy of the Church…
No jon, YOU have it backwards. Look how similar YOU are when YOU also claim that we have nothing to be concerned about when addressing the real imposing dangers that can and have taken place from escaped and reoffending “violent”, animalistic behaving ISIS type serial killers. Yes, it is you who bends over backwards to appease the homosexual agenda, and it is you who wants to still coddle an ISIS member as he is right in the process of beheading a Catholic priest and all while aggressively defending the benefits of solar panels. Faithful Catholics know that war is a punishment for sin and the *serial coddling of sin* brings war.
Yes jon, Faithful Catholics have always been taught that war is a punishment for sin, and NO…not solar panel sin, but the *serial coddling of terrible sins* brings war. It is not, surprising in the least, to read that you are finally admitting that you find evil and sinful acts “hilarious.”
The focus and blame for this evil violence will be on Global Warming and the usage of evil air conditioners, instead of addressing the real threat of Islamic Dominion.

A Catholic Priest Tells Christians to Stop Being So Naïve — Wake up to the Threat of Islamic Domination – Thomas More Law Center
“Turning the other cheek is the counsel Christ gave in the instance of an individual when morally insulted: Humility conquers pride. It has nothing to do with self-defense.”
“The Catholic Church has always maintained that the defiance of an evil force is not only a right but an obligation. Its Catechism (cf. #2265) cites St. Thomas Aquinas: “Legitimate defense can be not only a right but a grave duty for someone responsible for another’s life, the common good of the family or of the State.”
Fr. George Rutler always “hits the nail right on the head”.
Translation: those who disagree with pious jon = ISIS. jon = P Francis.
I hope there is some treatment or counseling available, if he would seek it— when one begins to equate ideological opponents ss equal to terrorists and cold-blooded killers, there is something sociopathically unwell there.
Aha! A supposed “Catholic” could be an “ideological opponent” of the Catholic Pope? Sounds rather insane to me: sociopathic if you ask me. Folks, they betray themselves by their very own words in their supposed defense. Pathetic. God defend the Pope: Deus Papam defendere.
Help for you from a qualified professional is only a phone call away.
To call oneself a Catholic and also an ideological opponent of the Catholic Pope is pretty bad, Campion. If that is how indeed you see yourself, there’s a bit of work you need in yourself, for it is not good spiritually and morally for a Catholic to see himself/herself as an opponent of the Pope in any respect.
As usual, jon’s shameful twisting of statements. No one opposes P Francis: everyone opposes distorters like jon.
More importantly, It is pathological and ill to frame one’s ideological opponents as cold-blooded killers, which jon does while jon pretends to be P Francis. jon pretends not to “get it.”
No one is further from the truth of PF, at his best, than jon. May God have mercy on a very little, little man..
The Pope holds Marxist ideals, jon, despite his being Catholic. You may want to get with the program that just being Catholic, that is saying one is Catholic, doesn’t automatically disabuse them of rank political views.
You may want to review yourself, for it is a negation of our duty as Christians to adopt Marxist principles, no matter who leads the way.
That said, jon, it is about BEING Catholic, not just calling oneself Catholic. It is not spiritually or morally honest to pretend that it is merely the name that counts.
So, ANn Malley, you are saying the Pope is NOT catholic but IS Marxist. Where is your evidence for any of this bull?
Folks just for the record here: note that these detractors of the Holy Father can’t get their act together. One of them (namely Campion) is backpedaling, disavowing that he ever characterized himself as an “ideological opponent” of the Pope (folks, his comment is very plain above). And another one is apparently embracing the fact that she, and therefore those with her, is an opponent of the Pope.
Folks, it’s just easier to be reverent of the Holy Father, not to oppose him. For where the Pope is, there is the Church.
Campion says “no one opposes Pope Francis.” He obviously hasn’t been reading closely the comments of the habitué of this blog. Neither has he been paying attention to what he himself types here, for what he writes do indeed betray a sentiment of opposition and distrust against the Holy Father.
One example I will cite is this: Campion’s comment in the article “Tim Kaine gets a standing ovation” where Campion states that he isn’t certain that the true Catholic Church is that Church of Pope Francis. Scandalous: as if the Pope has to prove to Campion anything. It’s a comment from July 28, 2016 at 6:56am. Campion, by doubting the election or even the faith of Francis and his Catholicity, you’re doubting the work of the…
Holy Spirit in the Conclave. This could be a sin against the Holy Spirit, which Our Lord warns is unpardonable. Deus Papam defendere!
YFC, we are all, including Pope Francis, capable of sinning. Oftentimes we don’t see it. Oftentimes we do, but attempt to mask it. Much like when some push an agenda that is the antithesis of Catholic Faith while calling themselves fellow Catholics.
Get on with your confused self, YFC. “Call” yourself whatever you’d like. But merely saying, Lord, Lord doesn’t cut it.
As for, “Folks, it’s just easier to be reverent of the Holy Father, not to oppose him. For where the Pope is, there is the Church.”
Being Catholic is not about what is easier, but in what is true, jon. Carrying one’s cross is true. And it is true that where the Pope is, there is the Church. This is why your statement demonstrates that where the Church is at…
at present is mired to the gills in manifest and grave crisis.
That’s “easy” to see, jon.
The jihadis are like those homosex ephebophiles who infiltrated the Church to target adolescent Boys, and just as dishonest as our own ‘resident harpies’ in their Anti-Catholic Hate propaganda.
Pope Francis may have a different style, but his Substance carries on Church Tradition and Wise Teaching, like Benedict and John Paul II before him.
That the Homosex Harpies who spray painted swastikas on Holy Redeemer Church (where my parents – heterosexual on both sides) were married. are wiling to use evil beheaders to push their same sort of pathology would itself be hypocritical – but only in a matter of small degree.
Jihadis or the Gaystapo who killed Catholics in Dachau – pretty much the same save for their drag costumes.
Father John Hardon, SJ was very close to Pope John Paul II. Holy, Pope John Paul II, let Father John Hardon SJ know that he had been betrayed by those who surrounded him. Wise Pope Benedict XVI resigned/retired/runoutonarail, because his “style” could not comport with the corrupt Curia forces that surrounded him. Pope John Paul II, at the end of his Pontificate, lamented his own “style”, of not disciplining. As Catholics we will always continue to pray for our Popes. Equating the world threat of Islamic Domination with “Catholic Violence” is a “style” that will not ever comport with St. Thomas Aquinas’s Tradition and wise reasoning. The Catholic priest who was just beheaded in France, would agree.
Except, gosh, the Nazi’s killed gays in their concentration camps, too. Pink stars instead of yellow.
Just for show. They killed a lot of Catholics, too, and anybody else who suited them for annihilation. But the heads of the party and SS were mostly butch homosexuals themselves. See: Lively/Abrams, The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, Founders Publishing (1996), 226 pages.
My recollection is that the Nazi Party purged the gays in the Night of Long Knives when they killed Ernst Rohm and the SS displaced the SA.
The Nazis did not execute German homosexuals who were cleared of association with Ernst Rohm and his “friends”. They could even serve in the German army as enlisted men. Hitler once said in the 1920s that he had no interest in a man’s personal life, since he wasn’t running a Scout Troop. He didn’t personal “ties” trumping party loyalties, that’s all.
Good Point Tom – the Pink Triangles were originally Brown and had the letters ‘SA” (for Sturm Abteilung / Storm Trooper) on them – until propaganda minister Goebbels decided he needed to sanitize hitler’s own notorious homosex behaviors a whole lot more.
In addition to procuring an alleged heterosexual mistress (Eva Braun – Who Never Slept with hitler) they also recalled the Reifehstahl movie ‘Der Sieg Des Glaubens’ – which featured Rohm and Hitler as Equal Leaders and blood brothers, and re-shot (in more ways than one) a newer version with Rohm edited out.
Hollyweird Gaystapo then and now – all samey same in service of ‘tolerance’.
Michael McDermott, LOVE all your excellent posts! Regarding Hitler and his mistress, Eva Braun– I thought they were very close, and slept together– and I thought that Hitler was guilty of many horrible, deviant, Satanic-type sex acts with her! I know Hitler was an enthusiast of diabolic occult interests, too! Well, “crime does not pay!”
Now I wonder– was Hitler actually a homosexual? Or bi-sexual? Or just DEVIANT, SCK, DIABOLIC??
BTW – I usually Scroll Past the Trolls anyway – but can anyone remember any one of their posts that didn’t somehow push the pathology of the Gaystapo Propaganda Troll – even in the oblique?
Oh – just in case the facts get obscured by the smoke of satan… The one under Saint Michael’s Heel is the Real Enemy (although watching the ‘news; you would never know it), and the rest just a motley crew of minor leaguers with low down and down low batting averages.
Just ask POTUS Barry ‘on the down low’ Soetpro and his long term and deeply admired switch hating coach – Rev. G.D. A. Wright…
If you can catch them on a smoke break that is; which the bought and paid for ‘free press’ never quite seems to cover either.
People ISLAM has been the enemy since its inception in the 7th century, and Francis just adores them, yet detests the Roman Catholic Church and YES I said it because someone has too!!!
Francis v Francis
Open letter to Pope Francis: The sad facts. You & your church are infidels (anyone not islam). Because they do not ‘accept’ other religions or cultures, Islam demands converting infidels to their beliefs or you die. As fellow CATHOLICS are being exterminated in the middle east, now is a time to support these Catholics, at the very least, with your rhetoric. We (infidels) have a God given right to protect ourselves as much as possible. Even St. Thomas Aquinas, a scholar & saint, distrusted islam. See the saints analysis @ http://www.brietbart.com/big-government/2015/12/27/thomas-aquinas-distrusted-islam/ cont……..
. . . or when sounded like A as in Sheikh and Inveigh.
Continued……………Remember the poor elderly, retired priest who was beheaded in France during mass recently? So sad that in his old age, even he was a target of ‘violent, radical’ islam. This cries to Heaven. How many more? Who will be next? Where will the next injustice occur due to radical islam? Do not be silent about the radical nature of islam. At least be truthful. Put Catholics & Christians & Jews first? We need solidarity especially from you @ the top! Promote peace thru solidarity, strength & truth. Prayer never hurts either. Praying for you & those that are at risk protecting you. Remember in the real world, most of us don’t have ‘guards’. Read St. Thomas Aquinas. Pray.
Oops, sorry FTP. I inadvertently split your comment–there was a typo in your link. I fixed it.
Good article, thanks.
I expected to hear this sort of thing from ISIS, a long time ago! I have been praying for the Holy Father to be protected from then, for a long time! ISIS is just HORRIBLE!! I daily pray to God, for deliverance from ISIS, for all of their victims—- and for all the poor souls, of those murdered evilly by ISIS! I pray that God will soon somehow put a total end to ISIS– forever and ever and ever!! Hopefully, ISIS will never harm the Pope! He needs our prayers!
If the Vatican is attacked by Islamic terrorists the Islamophiles will still say that Islam is a religion of peace.
Paris: Notre Dame Cathedral jihad massacre suspect was engaged to Muslim who murdered priest in church Date: September 10, 2016 at 11:36:05 AM PDT
“What kind of law enforcement apparatus allows the close associates of a jihad murderer to mount another jihad murder plot within weeks of the first? One that refuses to acknowledge that there is a jihad threat at all, refuses to admit the existence of the motivating ideology behind these threats, and so sees each plot or attack as a discrete, isolated incident that has no connection to any other such activity. This is a direct result of the general refusal to admit that Islamic jihad is Islamic jihad.”

Catherine and Ann Malley,and perhaps Janek too, in line with your observations about the wave of jihad intensifying in Euroislam, if you have not yet done so, I highly recommend the futuristic and remarkably prophetic novel, “The Mosque of Note Dame” (2005), by Russian novelist Elena Chudinova.
Chudinova describes a cowed, beaten France where now routinely wine merchants are executed at the Arch de Triumph and sharia law reigns; the Louver has been sacked and its art works destroyed; and of course, Note Dame is a mosque. The few who have refused to convert are relegated to the closely-surveilled ghettos. Remnant Press has it for about $20.
“The Mosque of Notre Dame”, is the title (darn auto-correct). Chudinova wrote her work after the Beslan slaughter of over 150 children by jihadist devils, and after observing that powerful international political forces were at work utilizing Muslim mass migration and resettlement to destroy national unity and order, especially of the remnant of the Christian West.
“The Mosque of Notre Dame” by E. Chudinova—“prophetic” novel about France in 2048 now dominated by an Islamic palatinate—is shocking, and coming soon: This from UK’s Daily Sun: “Massive Civil Ware Predicted by Scholar of Islam..” 9/13/16:
The excuse for the violent jihad is “joblessness”: but the overwhelming number of Muslim youth, esp. the men, are illiterate, unskilled, and utterly disinterested in developing skills and language to hold a job—when after all, their religion guarantees them Mahound’s Paradise and 72 whatevers.
The Notre Dame Mosque, Mr. Phoenix, as you suggestion, is coming, and today is one day closer to fruition.
