What Was St. Paul Miki Thinking!!??
Didn't he know he was simply an eco-friendly social worker?

St. Paul Miki and Companions suffered for Christ and His Church even unto crucifixion. Silly Japanese Martyrs. Silly Korean Martyrs. Silly English Martyrs. Silly North American Martyrs.

I guess that whole "Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." stuff is overrated.

Here's some of the article from Spero.com; (Emphasis and comments mine) Bishop has no interest in converting Muslims

While urging his flock to take the lead in his church's social gospel, Catholic Bishop Angelito Lampon said that his church has no interest in converting Muslims.
The bishop of Jolo, who has been strongly criticized by local Muslims, has urged lay Catholics to take the lead in the Church's social apostolate.

Oblates of Mary Immaculate Bishop Angelito Lampon, addressing the Feb. 22 assembly of Jolo vicariate, said Muslim suspicion against him and the local Church is among the "challenges" the Church must address. He urged the 47 Religious and lay Church workers present to develop lay leadership to fulfill the Church's mission of total human development (does salvation of one's soul count as "human development"?) without stirring up fears among Muslims.

Bishop Lampon also said supporting migrant sea and coastal dwellers in the area and illegal migrant workers deported from Malaysia is another challenge for the local Church.

Other challenges he discussed include better use of two Church radio stations to "deepen the spirituality of stewardship on ecological concerns," such as stopping sea pollution and use of dynamite in fishing.

Later speaking privately, Bishop Lampon said the Church has no intention to convert Muslims. Rather, he stressed the Church must collaborate with local communities to address poor governance, lack of basic social services, high illiteracy and poverty. If not, he warned, the peace and order situation will continue to deteriorate, and kidnappings for ransom, human right abuses and armed conflicts will increase.
(No Jesus, no peace.)

In the meantime, Muslims have never lost interest in converting Catholics. I think the Muslim population in my neighbourhood has been particularly active in that regard.

Did I miss the part about repentance and prayer?

...I guess no salvation outside the Church means nothing to this guy.

IMHO a showdown is coming between Christians & followers of the pedophile prophet. The rabid followers of Mo seem eager and frothing at the bit for it, Christians throughout the world had better wake up PDQ. If they don't the bloodbath will eclipse anything we've seen in history.

Just my paranoid rantings.

But even paranoids got enemies!
