Craven dhimmitude going back to the days of Don Pelayo, when Bishop Opas came to see him in his cave and told Pelayo to put down his sword by promising pardon and many benefits. Bishop Opas is quoted as saying, “Brother, I am sure that you work in vain. What possible resistance can you put up when all of Spain and its armies could not resist the Islamites? Listen to me. Settle down, and enjoy your many possessions in peace with the Arabs like everyone else is doing.”
The Muslims are well aware this. As long as they let the pope keep his position in pomp and security, he will always side with them and tell his flock to quieten down, to cool it, to “not do anything harsh” no matter how awful the transgressions; he will excuse every murder, every kidnapping of child-brides, and be complicit in mass-murder on the Coptic Christians as long as he can lord over his ever shrinking flock.

Egypt’s Coptic leaders have recently spoken out regarding the country’s newly approved constitution, which, since it became law on Dec. 26, has worried religious minorities in the country due to the power it gives to Islamist clerics and its weak laws regarding human rights.

The country’s Pope Tawadros II encouraged Coptic Christians attending Christmas Eve mass on Sunday, Jan. 6 to not be afraid of the changes which the country is currently encountering.
“Don’t be afraid,” Tawadros told those in attendance at Sunday’s midnight mass, as reported by The Associated Press.
“Even if humans feel lots of fear, remember God will take care of you. This is a collective message because fear is contagious [...]This is a message of reassurance,” Tawadros added.
