The Pope Spins Jesus to Placate Muslims

Pope Francis Just Compared the Great Commission to Jihad

"Yes, you read that right. The leader of the Roman Catholic Church, the pontiff who speaks for 1 billion Christians, said that Jesus's call to "make disciples of all nations" can be considered equivalent to the Islamic conquest of nations following the death of Mohammed. This conquest is a primary motivation for radical Islamic terrorism today, and the biggest Christian leader said "the same idea of conquest" can be linked to the Great Commission in the Gospel of Matthew.

In an interview on Tuesday with the French magazine La Croix, Francis minimized the difference between Islam and Christianity, arguing that the religions share a concept of subjugation.
'Today, I don't think that there is a fear of Islam as such but of ISIS and its war of conquest, which is partly drawn from Islam. It is true that the idea of conquest is inherent in the soul of Islam. However, it is also possible to interpret the objective in Matthew's Gospel, where Jesus sends his disciples to all nations, in terms of the same idea of conquest.'
This connection is so asinine, it can only be explained as a deduction from the liberal tenet that all religions are morally equivalent. Here is the passage, in Matthew 28, where Jesus issues the "Great Commission" to his followers (New International Version).
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Jesus does say "all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me," but in context this does not mean every nation should surrender to his political leadership. He explicitly asks his disciples to do something different -- to "make disciples" of all nations, not to make colonies of them."
This Pope is certifiable.

Muhammad said, "follow me, obey my laws, or die."

Jesus said, "If you are not accepted, then kick the dust off your sandals and move on".
