After just declaring that spreading the Christian gospel is the same as Muslims waging violent jihad, now he’s urging France to rescind its NO MUSLIM HEADBAGS law. Hey Frankie, why don’t you stick to kissing Muslim feet and stop telling other countries how to deal with their Muslim problems.
Arab News (h/t Doubt 101) Pope Francis has urged France to respect the right of Muslim women to profess their faith and wear the full face-covering hijab/niqab, just like Christians are allowed to wear the cross. (Except Christians, the few who have not been killed by Muslims, are not allowed to wear crosses in most Muslim countries)
“If a Muslim woman wishes to wear a veil, she must be able to do so. People must be free to profess their faith at the heart of their own culture not merely at its margins,” Francis told the French Catholic newspaper La Croix, according to The Guardian.
France is home to a Muslim community of nearly six million, the largest in Europe. Supremacist Muslims in France have been complaining of restrictions on shoving their oppressive to women culture in the faces of secular France.
In 2004, France banned Muslims from wearing hijab, an obligatory code of dress, in public places and schools. France also outlawed the wearing of face-veil in public in 2011.
The gift that keeps on giving:
The Pope has hailed the election of Sadiq Khan as “Muslim” mayor of London, claimed mass Muslim migration is “necessary” for Europe, and blamed Paris and Brussels for the attacks on European soil.
SHOCKER! The renegade pope said that Christians spreading the gospel is the same as Muslims waging jihad
