Brother Michael Dimond
Francis’ October 2, 2016 public address during visit to the mosque of Baku:
“Our being here together is a blessing. I thank the President of the Council of the Muslims in the Caucasus, who welcomes us with his customary hospitality, and the local religious Leaders of the Russian Orthodox Church, as well as the Leaders of the Jewish Communities. Meeting one another in fraternal friendship in this place of prayer is a powerful sign, one that shows the harmony which religions can build together, based on personal relations and on the good will of those responsible… I wish also to highlight the good relations that unite local Catholics to the Orthodox community in solid fraternity and daily affection which are an example for all, as well as the warm friendship shared with the Jewish community… There is here a desire to protect the great heritage of religions and, at the same time, a pursuit of deeper and more fruitful openness. The Catholic Church, for example, finds a place and lives in harmony among other religions that have far more members, demonstrating concretely that it is not opposition but cooperation that helps to build better and more peaceful societies. Our being together at this place is also in continuity with the many meetings that are held in Baku to promote dialogue and multiculturalism… out of respect for the dynamics of history, cultures and religious traditions. Religions have an enormous task: to accompany men and women looking for the meaning of life, helping them to understand… the vocation of human life is to set out towards the highest and truest love: this alone is the culmination of every authentically religious aspiration… Humanity therefore needs religion if it is to reach its goal. Religion is a compass that orients us to the good and steers us away from evil, which is always crouching at the door of a person’s heart (cf. Gen 4:7). Religions, therefore, have an educational task: to help bring out the best in each person. We, as guides, have a great responsibility, in order to offer authentic responses to men and women who are searching, who are often lost among the swirling contradictions of our time… Religions, on the contrary, which help to discern the good and put it into practice through deeds, prayer and diligent cultivation of the inner life… religions must never be instrumentalized, nor can they ever lend support to, or approve of, conflicts and disagreements. There is, furthermore, a fruitfulness deriving from the virtuous rapport between society and religions, that respectful alliance which needs to be built up and protected… it is the task of every civil society to support religion, which allows a light to shine through, indispensable for living… In this night of conflict that we are currently enduring, may religions be a dawn of peace, seeds of rebirth amid the devastation of death… may religions be active agents working to overcome the tragedies of the past and the tensions of the present. May the inestimable richness of these countries be known and valued: the treasures old and ever new of the wisdom, culture and religious sensibility of the people of the Caucasus, are a tremendous resource for the future of the region and especially for European culture; they are goods which we cannot renounce. Thank you.”
Francis begins by stating that being at the mosque with representatives of different false religions “is a blessing”. Francis promotes the mosque as “a place of prayer”. Francis then speaks of his hope for “harmony” between different “religions” who believe contradictory things on core religious matters and on even who God is. Francis speaks of how he believes “Catholics” are united with the schismatic “Orthodox”, even though the “Orthodox” reject many Catholic dogmas. Francis says the “Catholic Church” is not in opposition to other false religions, but in cooperation with them. Francis expresses respect for false religions and says that demonic non-Catholic religions “have an enormous task” helping people to understand “the meaning of life”. Francis says humanity needs “religion” – that means any “religion”. Francis says “religion” “orients us to the good and steers us away from evil”. But non-Catholic religions do the opposite of what Francis says: they orient people to evil. They lead people away from the truth and the one true religion, the Catholic religion, outside of which there is no salvation. Francis says that leaders of false religions “have an educational task: to help bring out the best in each person”. False religions can’t bring out the best in each person; instead they lead people to eternal damnation. This is more apostasy promoted by Antipope Francis. Francis calls the various leaders of false religions “guides” who “offer authentic responses to men and women who are searching”. Francis says various “religions” help people to “discern the good”. Francis utters the heresy that no “religion” can ever lend support to disagreements. Francis says that it is the duty of civil society to support “religion”. Francis is not referring only to the Catholic religion, but to any “religion”. This is directly contrary to the consistent teaching of Catholic popes throughout history. Francis says that non-Catholic “religions” allow “a light to shine through, indispensable for living”. Non-Catholic religions allow darkness and evil to shine through. They are indispensable to the Devil’s program to damn souls. Francis calls false religions “seeds of rebirth amid the devastation of death”. False religions lead those who follow them to the devastation of eternal death in Hell.
