Pope on Islam: It's Wrong to call Islam Violent

Pope Francis dealt a humongous blow to haters of Islam recently with his statement condemning the Islamohobic propaganda of Islam encouraging violence.
I hope the Islamopbes amongst the Catholic community consider this teaching from Pope Francis. A lot of the Islamophobia in the West comes from atheists and Protestant Christians so perhaps they are less likely to listen to Pope Francis
Pope Francis said last night that equating Islam with violence was wrong and called on Muslim leaders to issue a global condemnation of terrorism to help dispel the stereotype.
He told reporters aboard his plane returning from a visit to Turkey that he understood why Muslims were offended by many in the West who automatically equated their religion with terrorism.

He said: ‘You just can't say that, just as you can't say that all Christians are fundamentalists. We have our share of them (fundamentalists).

‘All religions have these little groups. They (Muslims) say: “No, we are not this, the Koran is a book of peace, it is a prophetic book of peace”.’
Francis said he had made the suggestion of a global condemnation of terrorism by Islamic leaders in talks on Friday with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.
‘I told the president that it would be beautiful if all Islamic leaders, whether they are political, religious or academic leaders, would speak out clearly and condemn this because this would help the majority of Muslim people,’ he said. [Daily Mail]
