Figures. NY Times Compares Muslim Brotherhood Terror Group to Catholic Church
And, of course, they’re totally serious.
The New York Times compared the Muslim Brotherhood terror group to the Catholic Church this week.
What a horrible rag.
Kathryn Lopez of National Review found the Catholic Church was also compared to the terrorism-endorsing Muslim Brotherhood by reporter Scott Shane:
The Brotherhood, founded in Egypt in 1928, is the oldest and largest Islamist movement in the world, with affiliates in nearly every Muslim country and adherents in Europe and the United States. Its size and diversity, and the decades-old legal ban that has kept it from genuine political power in Egypt, make it difficult to sum up simply. As the Roman Catholic Church encompasses leftist liberation theology and conservative anti-abortion advocacy, so the Brotherhood includes both practical reformers and firebrand ideologues.
This is not only offensive, but inaccurate in its crude metaphors that prefer politics over theology. Pope Benedict XIV in particular is a longtime critic of so-called “liberation theology,” as obviously was anti-communist Pope John Paul. As Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict wrote that it “constitutes a fundamental threat to the faith of the church.”
No wonder noted Italian exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth says The New York Times is possessed.
