Certain Cowardly French priests and bishops

The Catholic news site AsiaNews.it is reporting that there have been cases of French priests and bishops who have "impeded" baptisms of former-moslems to Catholicism due to fear of possible reprisals from moslems.

It has been reported that a group of Catholic and soon-to-be Catholics from France, Morocco and Algeria are planning on making a pilgrimage in the steps of the North African born St. Augustine when he traveled throughout Italy.

One of the specific intentions of the pilgrimage is that "Muslims who have heard the call of the Lord Jesus should not be prohibited from entering the Church."

AsiaNews.it has stated that "The idea refers to some episodes that have occurred in France and Algeria, where many Muslims who wanted to be baptized, have been impeded by priests and bishops, fearful of the consequences and overly precautious."

Once again we see the Pope leading the way, but Bishops refusing to follow as they should.

It is also a slap in the face to those saints like the Martyrs of Córdoba (9th Century), St. Eutychius and companions (8th Century), Blessed Alexander of Lugo (1645) Franciscans St Berard & companions (1220) & many others who were martyred for the Catholic faith by Muslims.

Maybe these Bishops & priests should be a less concerned about reprisals from muslims & more concerned about answereing to God for failing at their duties.

The pope needs to chew these wimps out, and if they continue to be cowardly, he needs to replace them with bishops and priests that have some balls!

Ansarullah Mawlawizadah, the chief judge in the case, said "the Prophet Muhammad has said several times that those who convert from Islam should be killed if they refuse to come back, Islam is a religion of peace, tolerance, kindness and integrity. That is why we have told him if he regrets what he did, then we will forgive him".

So much for the Dogma of Free Will.

I just love the contradiction in terms in the above statement! Sharia doesn't call for his forgiveness. It demands his death due to his apostasy.

Seems that the former Moslems trust in Jesus more than the French priests do. They should be Baptized ASAP!

Wow, and these cowardly Frogs are the descendants of Charles "The Hammer"/Martel, grand pappy of Charlemagne? He of Battle of Tours fame? Martel must be spinning in his grave!

In The Battle of Tours, Martel defeated the advancing Muslim army and saved Western Europe from Islamic domination. What a waste.

Twelve hundred years later, the Muslims are again invading, advancing, and entrenching themselves in Western societies. And they don't even have to lift a scimitar to do it.

Well, this cowardly acquiescence to Muslim pressure is not just a "French problem."

Thanks for nothing, Charlie.
