Thomas Aquinas and Réginald Marie Garrigou-Lagrange and Cardinal Giuseppe Siri have noted that Judaism and Catholicism are but one religion with the same (univocal) Divine Revelation. The Messiah to whom Israel and Judah looked forward is the Divine Founder of the Catholic Church.
Meanwhile, Islam is a Judeao-Catholic heresy. Islam is not a religion but rather error. Error has no rights. Muslims have rights. We are to respect their persons, but not their fake religion. We can offer to dialogue with them as did Pope Benedict XVI in his famous Regensburg Address. But they will say that they cannot dialogue because our logic, our reason, our common sense, our respect for the dignity of the human person is not at all the way Allah thinks. Therefore, no dialogue on any level is permitted.
When Abraham was to sacrifice his son as recounted in Genesis, this was about an immediate resurrection from the dead, an un-slitting of the throat of the boy. If Abraham believed that all his progeny would come through Isaac alone, he had to believe that God would immediately raise Isaac from the dead. Young Isaac, a symbol of the innocent sacrifice that would take away original sin, was not at all innocent, having been subject to original sin like all of us. So, a ram, a symbol of the Lamb of God to come was sacrificed as a temporary symbol instead. Then, Jesus, the Lamb of God, the Messiah, the Suffering Servant, worthy of standing in our place before our Heavenly Father, the Innocent for the guilty, arrived. Catholics are 100% with the Jews on the clear logic of this account in Genesis.
Meanwhile, Islam, the Qur’an, perverts this demonically. Muhammad has it that Abraham was to sacrifice his son not in view of any promised progeny, nor did it have to be this or that son, legit or illegit. For Islam, Abraham was to sacrifice his son merely as an offering to a bloodthirsty Allah. This is not about justice regarding sin, or any propitiatory sacrifice, nor about any symbolism regarding the Messiah to come and what that Messiah would do for us by standing in our place, taking on the punishment of death that we deserve for sin, original and whatever else. It is simply doing what all fallen peoples do in false religions, sacrificing children as bribery of, in this case, hateful “obedience” to a hateful Allah. The bowing the forehead to the ground thing of Islam is about the submission of Abraham’s son to Allah wanting that Abraham’s son get his head cut off, just to do it. Why do you think kids are the ones who are always strapped up with suicide-murder bomb vests?
Try to dialogue with that and you will be killed. Let Islam consecrate Vatican City to Islam and they will rejoice. But that’s not dialogue. Such confusion only brings about discord, you know, wherein children get killed. It’s not right:
It’s gotta stop. But free speech is being attacked both by secular society and…

This new campus (whatever they call it), being built in AbuDhabi is creepy. Another thing that does not bode well for faithful Catholics.
Remember what Our Lady of Akita said: “Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able still to save you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved.”
Re “Let Islam consecrate Vatican City to Islam and they will rejoice.”
Apparently an imam made a claim of sorts on the Vatican in 2014 in a prayer he recited during a “peace” event hosted by Pope Francis and attended by Middle-Eastern leaders. A tree was planted in the Vatican gardens to commemorate that event. Father Z photographed it last month when he was in Rome, identifying it as “the Tree of Islamic Infamy, where the Iman read the sutra to claim the Vatican for Islam”.
Islam has wanted all Europe – actually the whole world – since its founding in the 7th century, but Rome especially. History, though, is undergoing a revision with much white-washing as to the true nature of Islam.
There is no dialogue with an idol, either. Ears that cannot hear, eyes that cannot see, mouths that cannot speak.
A very blessed Christ the King to all!
Thank you Sanfelipe. Same to you.
Great early morning post.
Napoleon has been described as a Catholic who embraced paganism and became fascinated by Islam; the same has been said of Hitler. In reality, though, like others in history who have sought great power – and like the anti-Christ to come – such men are irreligious but use religion to achieve their political ends. As for Islam, it attracts the power-hungry because of its mobilising power and ruthlessness. What, I wonder, does Pope Francis see in that militant false religion? Whatever the “Abrahamic Family House” proposed for Abu Dhabi is supposedly about, one thing is certain, it is not about proclaiming Jesus Christ as King.
Well said, Aussie Mum. Back when TV allowed the accurate portrayal of the people of God, a writer put these words into the mouth of a character: “There are two kinds of people. Those that use God, and those that allow God to use them.”
I like that quote, thank you Sanfelipe. I’m adding it to my note-book of helpful sayings.
I recall going to a conference a while back and one of the speakers described going to lunch with a Muslim in an effort to promote dialogue, but the Muslim kept banging his fist on the table declaring “blasphemy,” and the lunch was quickly ended.
