Popenator to Islam-You Can’t Get Past First Base

“a true dialogue is not possible without putting one’s faith in parentheses.”

Since Catholicism like all religions calls for obedience to their strict moral code in their eyes all decisions are religious decisions.  I took German 101 so I can translate this out of Popenator and into English;  he can’t agree with Muslims about the whole Jesus/Mohammad thing but he can agree with them about things like destroying your right to choose and annihilating civil rights for LGBTQ people.  Isn’t it wonderful that despite their differences religions can find common ground?

Thank GAWD!! The Popenator has Forgiven John Lennon.
