“If Islam is a good religion in itself, as you seem to teach, why did we become Catholic?” the converts ask Francis in the letter. “Do not your words question the soundness of the choice we made at the risk of our lives?”
In an open letter to the Pope, ex Muslim’s, now Christian converts have asked the pope the above question. In this same open letter, Muslim’s who are now Christian converts have put the Pope to task and challenged him on his attitude towards and preaching on Islam.
An excerpt from the open letter sent to Pope Francis from thousands of Muslim converts reads;
“That the Pope seems to propose the Quran as a way of salvation, is that not cause for worry? Should we return to Islam? [The fact is] naiveté in the face of Islam is suicidal and very dangerous … The Church must bring to light why the arguments put forward by Islam to blaspheme the Christian faith are false. If the Church had the courage to do that, we do not doubt that millions, Muslims as well as other men and women seeking the true God, would convert.”
Life Site News have also reported further on this open letter and its origins “The letter came after years of attempts by the letter’s promoters to communicate with Pope Francis on the subject, organizers say. It was originally composed in French and posted Christmas Day, first with just 10 signatures at the outset. Those behind the letter aim to present it to Pope Francis when it reaches a significant number of signatures. The signatories consist of former Muslims and their friends who have connected via social networks for associations that support ex-Muslims or evangelization of Muslims.”
