Vatican prelate challenges Islamic scholars to give peaceful interpretation of Qu’ran

[While His Excellency “wouldn’t dream of telling Muslims how to interpret their faith,” they are more than willing to tell us how to interpret (or rather, distort) Catholicism to fit its erroneous description in the Koran (or to renounce the Faith completely)]

Catholic World News – August 12, 2016

The president of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences has acknowledged that passages of the Qu’ran seem to offer clear support for the use of violence.”

Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo said that it would be “naïve” to ignore the problematical passages of the Qu’ran, and it is a major challenge for Islamic leaders to “give a peaceful hermeneutic to these passages”—particularly in light of pressure from extremists.”

Bishop Sanchez Sorondo said that he “wouldn’t dream of telling Muslims how to interpret their faith,” but that any moderate Islamic scholars willing to take up the challenge of denouncing violence would “find a strong ally and friend in the Catholic Church.”

    The fact that Sorondo is speaking out about Islam in such a blunt matter is surprising, especially owing to his liberal track record.

    When conflicting reports came out in April that pro-abortion presidential candidate Bernie Sanders was invited to the Vatican to meet with the Pope, claims were that the candidate was invited by Bp. Sorondo himself.

    In 2015, Sorondo was open about his belief regarding climate change and said the best way of fighting the climate change issue and poverty was through “redistribution of public spending” combined with government-led monitoring of carbon emissions.

    When the Vatican and the United Nations teamed up to release the U.N. Sustainable Devolpment Goals (SDGs), which many Catholics had criticized for its support of abortion and population control, Sorondo responded by defending the U.N.
