Echoing Pope Francis, Italian Bishop says Islamic terrorist attacks on Christians have nothing to do with religion

Attacks like the massacre in a Christmas market in Berlin by a Muslim and the murder of the Russian ambassador in Ankara by a Muslim, have nothing to do with religion, but are economically motivated, according to the secretary general of the Italian bishops’ conference. (Gee, let’s see what he says when Muslim terrorists attack the Vatican)

Breitbart  In an interview with the Italian daily, Corriere della Sera, Bishop Nunzio Galantino, said the Berlin and Ankara terrorist attacks were not motivated by religion but by money. “At bottom, there is just selfishness and oppression,” Galantino said. “Wars benefit those who have power or money, those who trade in weapons.”

Galantino was personally appointed to his leadership role in the Italian Bishops Conference by Pope Francis, in a rare move where the pontiff circumvented the usual elective process to name his own man. (one who also has no problem kissing Muslim feet?)

In the end, he said, “poor people die in wars, while the well-off are enriched.” The solution, the bishop contends, “is to be all the more united (with people who refuse to integrate?), more tolerant” (of people who hate you for your religion and culture?) and to “beware of violence, even in the use of language.” (No criticism of Islam allowed)

“Vulgarity and aggressiveness in language fuel a climate that brings out the worst in people and impedes efforts toward a peaceful coexistence. There is a terrorism of language, and you can kill with calumny,” he said. It is not a clash of civilizations, he said. “I do not believe it.”
