The Pope has called for a ban on the brutal and inhumane sharia. He seeks a ban on the blasphemy laws (absurdly called “islamophobia” in the West). Christians are being slaughtered, ethnically cleansed, in Muslim countries under the guise of “do not insult Islam.” (Atlas Shrugs)
How did the Pope supposedly insult every Muslim man, woman, and child on Allah’s green earth? Did he open an ancient codex of “Yo Mamma” jokes? No, he called for the repeal of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws.
