Well, that’s not something you see everyday.
I wonder if the Pope will let them read Surah 9:29?:
Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.
Or maybe Pope Francis will approve of this Qu’ranic jewel:
Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture (i.e. Christians and Jews) and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are the worst of creatures. (emphasis added)
I don’t know, maybe the Vatican is seeking support for its traditional suppression of women. Perhaps the Imam might share this with His Holiness:
Men are in charge of women by [right of] what Allah has given one over the other and what they spend [for maintenance] from their wealth. So righteous women are devoutly obedient, guarding in [the husband’s] absence what Allah would have them guard. But those [wives] from whom you fear arrogance – [first] advise them; [then if they persist], forsake them in bed; and [finally], strike them. But if they obey you [once more], seek no means against them. Indeed, Allah is ever Exalted and Grand. (emphasis added)
It’s always interesting to see the contest between the two “One True Church” – es.
I wonder if the Bible is being read at Mecca this Sunday. Naaaa.
