Jesuit priest: Islam is “violent throughout its entire history” out of “obedience to the Law of Allah”

Another Jesuit strays off the reservation. No matter how ruthlessly Pope Francis and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops work to suppress any challenge to their new iron dogma that Islam is a Religion of Peace (which they appear to believe in more fervently than they do their own creed, as they enforce adherence to it much more strictly), reality keeps breaking though their fog of disinformation. What will they do? No doubt work all the harder to make sure that voices that challenge their ridiculous fantasies do not get heard.

“Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 15:14)

“Have I then become your enemy by telling you the truth?” (Galatians 4:16)

“Realism and Islam,” by James V. Schall, S.J., Catholic World Report, April 17, 2016:

…we recall recent events from “9/11”, the bombings in Spain, England, Mumbai, Bali, Fort Hood, San Bernardino, twice in Paris, Lahore, and Brussels, not to mention the persecutions and beheadings in Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Nigeria, Libya, Somalia, Chad, Syria, and the Sunni/Shiite inner-Muslim battles. What is the most plausible way to judge such continuing violence and its origins? To make this assessment, we have to acknowledge that Islam, in principle, is actually and potentially violent throughout its entire history. The basic reason for this method is obedience to the Law of Allah, not love for violence itself.

On the basis of evidence and theory, we cannot conclude from the fact that Islam is a “religion” that therefore it is not “violent” or is so only by abuse of its own founding. It is possible to be a religion and to espouse violence. (Were this not so, we would have to exclude many key passages on the Old Testament itself.) We cannot obscure what is there and affirmed to be there by Muslims themselves. Realism means that we can and should call what happens by its proper name. It also means that, if we cannot or will not make this proper naming, we are not realistic. We will inevitably suffer the consequences of our failure to state the truth of what is there.
