| Hugh Fitzgerald: Pope Francis and Jihad: Credo Quia Absurdum, And How - Talking about our idiot, the Pope !!

Credo Quia Absurdum.
A glutton for punishment, I turned to the Vatican paper, L’Osservatore Romano,
to read the Pope’s exact words, in the original Italian, about the
killing of the indomitable priest in Rouvray.
Here is what the Pope had
to say to the journalists flying with him to Cracow:
“Quando io parlo di ‘guerra’, parlo di guerra sul serio,
non di ‘guerra di religione’, no!”, ha esclamato Bergoglio. Il quale ha
poi precisato: “C’è guerra di interessi, c’è guerra per i soldi, c’è
guerra per le risorse della natura, c’è guerra per il dominio dei
popoli: questa è la guerra. Qualcuno può pensare: ‘Sta parlando di
guerra di religione’: no. Tutte le religioni, vogliamo la pace. La
guerra, la vogliono gli altri. Capito?”.
È tornato poi a parlare di “guerra a pezzi”, parola che secondo lui
inquadra meglio la situazione rispetto al termine “insicurezza”. A
proposito di guerra, ha affermato che “c’era quella del ’14, con i suoi
metodi, poi quella del ’39 – ’45, un’altra grande guerra nel mondo, e
adesso c’è questa. Non è tanto organica, forse, organizzata, sì,
“When I speak of war, I’m talking about real war, not a “war of
religion, no!” the Pope exclaimed. And then he extended his thought
further: “There are wars over interests of all kinds, wars over money,
wars over natural resources, wars fought to establish dominion over
other peoples: those are all real wars. Someone might think: “You’re
talking about wars of religion.” No. All religions want peace. It’s
others [the non-religious] who want war. You understand?”
And he then started to talk about a ”war” being conducted piecemeal,
which according to him better described the current situation than the
term “insecurity,” On the question of war, he maintained that “there was
the war of 1914, with its methods, then the war of 1939-45, another
world war, and now there is this one. It’s an organized campaign,
although not planned at every step.”
Take a minute to rub your eyes in disbelief.
Apparently the Pope,
like the shallowest campus Marxist-Leninist, believes that all wars are
caused by conflict over resources of one kind or another: land, natural
resources, populations to be plundered. Apparently the Pope, the head of
the Catholic Church, cannot believe that religion can ever be the cause
of wars. Apparently the Pope has never heard of the Wars of Religion
with which the Papacy was deeply involved over several centuries.
