Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Pope on Christian-Muslim dialogue: Saying 'yes' to everything is a way of deceiving

2015-01-26

When it comes to dialogue between Christians and Muslims, there are still challenges that need to be overcome. Progress has been made said the Pope, but more work needs get done. 


This was the Pope's message as he addressed the Pontifical Institute for Arabic and Islamic Studies. The Saturday meeting was a way to promote dialogue between both faiths. 

POPE FRANCIS
"We must try to avoid conciliatory connections that are empty. We must avoid the comfortable approach of saying yes to everything, to merely avoid confrontation. This is just a way of  deceiving one another.”

Pope Francis stressed that peaceful coexistence takes for granted understanding the differences of each group. He explained that is one of the main reason why experts on Islam are so needed. 

POPE FRANCIS
"Because of this, there's a great need for a complete formation so that, firm in our identity, we can grow in our mutual understanding.”


As he concluded, the Pope added that the best way to counter-act violence and hate is through education and respect.
