Bergoglio and terrorism
A) The text of the speech by J.M.Bergoglio:
«Dear Pope Francis, my name is Andrea, I am 15 years old and I come from Bergamo. I arrived in Italy when I was nine years old, around six years ago. The children in my class began to make fun of me, as I had just arrived, in fairly offensive terms….. I wanted to ask you, given that I have forgiven them in part, because I do not want to hate anyone, I have forgiven them to a point, but I also still suffer somewhat. I wanted to ask you, how can I forgive these people? How can I forgive them for everything they did to me?»
«Thank you for your account. You speak about a problem that is very common among children and even among those people who are not children: cruelty…. When a person speaks badly of another, this is cruel: it is cruel because it destroys that person’s reputation. But, you know, I like to repeat an expression when I speak about this cruelty of language: gossip is terrorism, the terrorism of gossip. The cruelty of language, or of what you felt, is like launching a bomb that destroys you or destroys anyone, and the one who throws it does not harm himself. This is a form of terrorism, it is something that we have to defeat. How can we defeat this? You have chosen the right path: silence and patience, and you finished with that beautiful word, forgiveness…. Thank you for your witness.»” (Dialogue with Italian young people, Archbishop’s Palace of Kraków Wednesday, 27 July 2016)
B) References to Scriptures:
“If the world hates you, you must realise that it hated me before it hated you. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you do not belong to the world, because my choice of you has drawn you out of the world, that is why the world hates you.” (Joh 15:18-19)
Terrorism, for Bergoglio, is that of the chatter. Not that of the Islamic fundamentalists who are sowing terror and death in Europe and throughout the world, especially against Christians.
Whenever the theme of Islamic terrorists should be faced, Bergoglio is the first to sidestep the problem; rather he seeks every pretext to excuse Muslims and, at the same time, exhorts those who are persecuted (especially Christians) to make “silence“, to endure with “patience“. In a word, to suffer passively, letting themselves be slaughtered. In doing so, the Islamists kill and sow fear, especially in their territories, persecuting Christians who are forced to flee or to die as martyrs. In the territories with a Christian majority, Christians are instead advised not to react, to be silent, up to the point of losing their Christian identity in the name of a false ecumenism and of a false brotherhood.
In front of the drama of Islamic terrorism, in front of the real genocides against Christians, Bergoglio instead of defending Christians, attacks them talking of the terrorism of gossip. This means evading the real problem of Islamic fundamentalist terrorism. Once again Bergoglio’s Church proves to be stepmother of Christians and lenient toward Muslims.
On another occasion, speaking to the clergy, Bergoglio incredibly said to the religious and the permanent deacons: «If only he would be a kamikaze!» implying that what he calls terrorism of gossip is worse than the Islamic terrorism of kamikazes. This is simply unbelievable!
But what is surprising is that now the public opinion is not surprised about anything. They drink and assimilate everything that is fobbed them off, for the mere fact that the man who is speaking is dressed in white. Instead of looking at the color of his clothing, we ought to look at the color of the heart and especially the nature of the spirit that animates that heart. Unfortunately, many Christians are not able to see reality with the eyes of their faith and judge the facts in the light of the Gospel’s teachings.
Bergoglio is certainly animated by an anti-christian and anti-christic spirit. He says and does things contrary to the action and to the teachings of the Holy Spirit and exhorts Christians to behave in the opposite way to how they should. Bergoglio teaches to be silent and suffer in front of enemies that attack and want to destroy Christian faith, rather than defend themselves and the values in which they believe. Bergoglio justifies the Islamic suicide bombers and does not defend Christians. The church of Rome is not the mother of Christians, but their stepmother.
