A Jesuit Scholar Gives Strong Advice to Pope Francis
Could it be possible that this Jesuit Priest sees things far clearer than most on the difference between two major religious faiths? Would he be so convinced of his viewpoint that he felt the need to warn the Pope about his concerns?
A friend sent me this article of an interview given by Father Henri Boulad to the National Catholic Register.
The article is written by Edwin Pentin. It begins: “In an interview with the Register, Egyptian Greek Melkite* Jesuit Father Henri Boulad explains why he believes Islamist terrorists are applying what their religion teaches them, and why the Church fails to address this because she has fallen prey to a leftist ideology that is destroying the West.”
If you are interested in reading it, you should read it in its entirety…including the last part of the article: “Are there genuine and workable possibilities for reform of Islam and can dialogue ever be effective?”
(*The term “Melkite” (/ˈmɛlkaɪt/), also written “Melchite”, refers to various Byzantine Rite Christian churches and their members originating in the Middle East. … When used in an ecclesiastical sense, it refers specifically to the Melkite Greek Catholic Church as an ethnoreligious group.
