McCarrick the Muslim: Washington “Cardinal” Lauds the “Holy Koran” and “Muhammad the Prophet, Peace Be Upon Him”
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, Washington’s retired “Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick opens his mouth at a press conference in Washington, D.C., and essentially endorses the Muslim religion. Read the following highlights from an article in The Daily Caller (red print added by us for special emphasis):
Catholic Cardinal Theodore McCarrick offered Islamic religious phrases and insisted that Islam shares foundational rules with Christianity, during a Sept. 10 press conference in D.C.
“In the name of God, the Merciful and Compassionate,” McCarrick said as he introduced himself to the audience at a meeting arranged by the Muslim Public Affairs Council. That praise of the Islamic deity is an important phrase in Islam, is found more than 100 times in the Koran, and is akin to the Catholic prayer, ”In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
McCarrick next claimed that “Catholic social teaching is based on the dignity of the human person… [and] as you study the holy Koran, as you study Islam, basically, this is what Muhammad the prophet, peace be upon him, has been teaching.”
“We believe that Islam is a religion which helps people, not kills them… the Muslim community has always taught this,” McCarrick said.
(Neil Munro, “Catholic Cardinal McCarrick Embraces Islam”, The Daily Caller, Sep. 11, 2014)
What can one say? The apostasy is full-blown at this point — the Modernists of the Vatican II Sect are no longer ashamed to openly praise the Islamic deity and use Muslim theological phrases in their public statements.
All of this, of course, is based upon the Novus Ordo Church’s false teaching that Catholics worship the same God as Muslims do, just “differently.” It is all a prelude to the one-world religion, in which all religions are combined into one humanistic “peace” religion, while each “faith tradition” will be allowed to retain its “customs.”
Pope St. Pius X sternly warned against a “great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer” (Pius X, Apostolic Letter Notre Charge Apostolique [“Our Apostolic Mandate”], 1910).
The apostasy propagated by the Novus Ordo Sect is getting worse by the day. But don’t think McCarrick is alone in propagating this nonsense. His boss, “Pope” Francis, has given plenty of credence to Islam, as you can see in the following posts:
- Francis lauds “abundant Spiritual Fruit” of Muslim Ramadan observance
- Francis encourages Muslims to “share their faith” using the Koran
- Co-Exist: Francis, the Muslims, and the Jews
- Francis’ Interreligious Prayer with Jews & Muslims
And please don’t think that everything would be fine if only Benedict XVI hadn’t resigned. Here are some sobering links regarding Benedict’s position on Islam:
- Benedict XVI at the Blue Mosque in Turkey
- Benedict XVI enters Dome of the Rock Mosque in Israel
- Benedict XVI: “For [the Qur’an] I have the respect due to the holy book of a great religion” (Footnote 3 here)
Have you ever wondered how these endorsements of the Muslim religion must make Novus-Ordos-trying-to-be-Catholics in Iraq feel who are being threatened with a cruel death should they refuse to convert to Islam? Would you be encouraged to endure the most cruel tortures for the sake of the Catholic Faith and your dear Lord Jesus Christ when the “Pope” is at the same time stabbing you in the back and telling the world that it’s really the same God and that one can grow in holiness through the practice of this false religion, which supposedly teaches “peace”?
With “Catholics” like Benedict XVI, Francis I, and “Cardinal” McCarrick, who needs apostates?
We are currently preparing a substantial post on the question of whether Allah of Islam is identical to the true God of Catholicism, the Most Holy Trinity, as claimed by the Vatican II Sect and many misled souls. Until then, please review these scriptural passages:
Who is a liar, but he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father, and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. He that confesseth the Son, hath the Father also.
(1 Jn 2:22-23)
Whosoever revolteth, and continueth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that continueth in the doctrine, the same hath both the Father and the Son. If any man come to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house nor say to him, God speed you.
(2 Jn 1:9-10)
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema.  As we said before, so now I say again: If any one preach to you a gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be anathema.
Dear people, yes, the Muslims pose a great threat to all of us, but the much greater threat is found in the Novus Ordo religion, which daily poisons souls with its Modernist apostasy under the name of “Catholicism.” Muslims may seek to kill your body, but the Novus Ordo goes straight for your soul.
So, now what? —> Face the facts: Francis is not the Pope of the Catholic Church; his sect is not the same religion as the Catholic Church of Pope Pius XII.
