Pope Francis Signs Agreement with Imam, Heading Closer to One-World Religion

A historic interfaith covenant was signed in the Middle East on Monday, and the mainstream media in the United States has been almost entirely silent about it. Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb is considered to be the most important imam in Sunni Islam, and he arrived at the signing ceremony in Abu Dhabi with Pope Francis “hand in hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood.” But this wasn’t just a ceremony for Catholics and Muslims. According to a British news source, the signing of this covenant was done “in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths”:
The pope and the grand imam of al-Azhar have signed a historic declaration of fraternity, calling for peace between nations, religions and races, in front of a global audience of religious leaders from Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other faiths.
Pope Francis, the leader of the world’s Catholics, and Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the head of Sunni Islam’s most prestigious seat of learning, arrived at the ceremony in Abu Dhabi hand-in-hand in a symbol of interfaith brotherhood.​
In other words, there was a concerted effort to make sure that all of the religions of the world were represented at this gathering.

According to the official Vatican website, a tremendous amount of preparation went into the drafting of this document, and it encourages believers from all religions “to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another and even pray” with one another:
The document, signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb, was prepared “with much reflection and prayer”, the Pope said. The one great danger at this moment, he continued, is “destruction, war, hatred between us.”
“If we believers are not able to shake hands, embrace one another, kiss one another, and even pray, our faith will be defeated,” he said. The Pope explained that the document “is born of faith in God who is the Father of all and the Father of peace; it condemns all destruction, all terrorism, from the first terrorism in history, that of Cain.”​
There is a lot of language about peace in this document, but it goes way beyond just advocating for peace.
Over and over again, the word “God” is used to simultaneously identify Allah and the God of Christianity. Here is just one example…
We, who believe in God and in the final meeting with Him and His judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility, and through this Document, call upon ourselves, upon the leaders of the world as well as the architects of international policy and world economy, to work strenuously to spread the culture of tolerance and of living together in peace; to intervene at the earliest opportunity to stop the shedding of innocent blood and bring an end to wars, conflicts, environmental decay and the moral and cultural decline that the world is presently experiencing.​
On top of that, the document also boldly declares that “the diversity of religions” that we see in the world was “willed by God”:
Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action. The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives. Therefore, the fact that people are forced to adhere to a certain religion or culture must be rejected, as too the imposition of a cultural way of life that others do not accept;​
In essence, this is saying that it is the will of God that there are hundreds of different religions in the world and that they are all acceptable in His sight.
We know that the elite want a one-world religion, but to see the most important clerics from both Catholicism and Islam make such a dramatic public push for it is absolutely stunning.

This is a positive initiative, and it is hyperbolic to state that it is a 'push for one world religion', after all the two faiths worship the same god. Humanity always benefits from the spirit of cooperation and mutual respect, and maybe, just maybe, this will go some way to tone down the religious extremism so prevalent in the modern world.

Feel free to demonstrate why you view it as negative instead of just attacking the poster.
It shows you know nothing about the differences in the religions. So do you think Christians will accept Sharia law because I do not see Islam getting rid of Sharia. Then of course how would this affect Jews

And to prove my point, Ptif lobs yet another moronic attack. How predictable. :rolleyes:

Yet, this has nothing to do with the integration of Sharia (the term 'Sharia law' is a redundancy, for 'Sharia' means 'law') into societies outside of the Islamic faith.

Let's list your unproven claims thus far:

1. Catholicism is a cult (if so, so are all religions and related sects).

2. The Pope is pushing for a one world religion (there is nothing in the articles to suggest thus).

3. Sharia will be integrated into other faiths (there is nothing in the articles to suggest thus).

The Catholic religion is the original Christian religion. All of the other Christian denominations branched off from Catholicism. I'm not arguing that there wasn't good reasons, in some cases. But the current Evangelical strain in the US today want to enshrine their religious beliefs in our laws and that's not a lot different than early Catholicism.

The idea that the Pope is pushing for one world religion is absurd. Only the extremists of all religions would see this as a bad thing.

“We resolutely declare that religions must never incite war, hateful attitudes, hostility and extremism, nor must they incite violence or the shedding of blood.”

Whatever your religion is, how could you be against that?
