A Portuguese bishop is blaming European prejudices for the slaughter and beheading of three innocent Catholics by an illegal Muslim migrant in Nice’s Notre Dame Basilica.
“The attack on the cathedral in Nice is not Islam’s fight against Christianity: It is the result of the prejudices of those Europeans who not only do not foster intercultural and interreligious dialogue but are always at the ready to accuse religions,” Bp Manuel Linda of Porto tweeted on November 6.
Calling upon the West to fight against jihadi forces with “force and determination,” the French-speaking Guinean prelate warned that Islam would “not stop its war” against Europe.
“Unfortunately, we Africans know this too well. The barbarians are always the enemies of peace. The West, today France, must understand this. Let us pray,” tweeted Sarah, prefect of the Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.
