Vicious Hate Preacher, Deacon Robert Spencer Attacks Cardinal Theodore McCarrick

RNS-MCCARRICK-PROFILE

via. Spencerwatch

Deacon Robert Spencer is clearly outside of mainstream Catholicism, it’s a shame he is ordained at all. Recently, he unleashed his medieval hate on respected Catholic leader and theologian, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

What was Cardinal McCarrick’s offense according to Spencer? Simply speaking at an Anti-ISIS press conference organized by the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC) where he supported Muslim Americans against hate and reiterated his belief that Islam and it’s social message cherishes peace and compassion.

For this offense, the right-wing rag “The Daily Caller” headlined their article with the absurd title, “Catholic Cardinal McCarrick Embraces Islam.” Hyperbole much?

During his speech Cardinal McCarrick used the phrase “In the name of God, the Merciful and Compassionate.” He also said “Peace Be Upon Him,” after quoting Prophet Muhammad.

Spencer responded by scornfully asking,

“Has Cardinal McCarrick converted to Islam?”

“‘Peace be upon him’ is a phrase Muslims utter after they say the name of [their reputed] prophet… [so] probably he is unaware of the unintended Islamic confession of faith he has just made,”said Spencer.

This is the sort of idiocy that we are facing from the Islamophobia Movement’s experts! Merely reciting a well known Islamic phrase positively makes a Catholic Cardinal a Muslim! I know Cardinal McCarrick is unphased by such idiotic mendacity but the fact that Spencer would resort to these gutter antics to feed his unhinged Far-Right, White Supremacist base is doubly egregious when one considers that the 84 year old Cardinal was recently rushed to the hospital with a heart problem.

Spencer sees the “threat” of Muslims and Islam everywhere, from Barack Obama to Cardinal McCarrick, the tent of Muslims-According-to-Spencer keeps on growing.

Clearly Spencer is anti-Catholic. Maybe a stealth Protestant?

  • Has Spencer ever apologized for child abuse by priests in the Church? Has Spencer said that “the Church does not embrace child abuse?!”

    Well maybe it does embrace child abuse: Why no denuncations and renouncement of child abuse in the Church from Spencer?!

    We do, in fact, clean up quite well!!!

  • Everything that Congress approves or disproves, whether Obama agrees with it or not, is Obama’s fault.

  • How…
    So Obama and Kerry should be removed for speaking the truth about Islam but W gets a pass for saying the same thing?
    Why…

    At this point, they might as well blame the burning of the White House on President Obama.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they blamed the fall of the Roman Empire on Obama

    But he has the common sense of a fourth grader so how could he get what is going on in the world?

    John Guandolo: Obama Committed Treason By Saying ISIL Isn’t Islamic And Should Be Removed From Office

    http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/john-guandolo-obama-committed-treason-saying-isil-isn-t-islamic-and-should-be-removed-office

    John Guandolo, the disgraced former FBI agent who is now a full-time anti-Muslim commentator, told talk show host Steve Deace
    on Friday that President Obama and other U.S. officials should be
    “removed from office” for either “treason” or incompetence for saying
    that the Islamic State doesn’t represent Islam.

    In his speech announcing air strikes on the Islamic State, Obama emphasized that “ISIL is not ‘Islamic,’” a line that echoed his predecessor George W. Bush’s efforts to distinguish the ideology of terrorists from Islam.

    But, according to Guandalo, these kind of remarks from people like
    the president and Secretary of State John Kerry are either intentional
    lies, “in which case there’s probably treason and laws being broken
    there,” or a sign that the speaker is “completely incompetent.”

    “In either case, they should be removed from office,” he concluded.

    From their point of view, the biggest part of this war is the
    information campaign so that our leaders will parrot the idea that this
    stuff has nothing to do with Islam. I mean, a sixth grader who does 30
    minutes of good research will realize that that’s crap, that’s just
    simply factually untrue. And so you have got to ask the question, are
    our leaders saying it and know they’re saying it, in which case there’s
    probably treason and laws being broken there. Or are they saying it and
    have no clue, which means they’re completely incompetent. And in either
    case, they should be removed from office.

    An excellent thought.

    At this point, Robert Spencer seems to be little more than a cult leader, who, like religious extremists within Islam, defines everything in terms of being either pro-Islam or anti-Islam. The only difference between religious extremists within Islam and Robert Spencer is which side they view themselves as being on.

    Teaticles are optional here. What he needs to do that is theocracy. You want to get queasy, look up “Dominionism”, “Christian Reconstructionism”, and “New Apostolic Reformation”. These people were perilously close to total control during the administration of He Who Shall Not Be Named, and they won’t give up. They are very much into execution by stoning, including of disobedient children. You picture them with thermonukes.

    Spencer reminds me of RSIS. Minus the beheadings and crap, If he had the testicles, he probably would behead people, but as it is, I’m not complaining.

  • Yea, I would certainly not take it as a profession of faith, but rather as a show of solidarity with other monotheists.

  • We have a saying here in America that “No good deed goes unpunished.”
    Thanks to Robert Spencer for proving the adage true again.

    While he’s at it, Spencer must also now disavow St. Thomas Aquinas, who cited Imam al-Ghazali–“The Proof of Islam” as he is called–numerous times in his work, and not to censure him either.

    How that leaves Spencer any leg at all to stand on is beyond me.
    His is a special kind of madness.

  • mindy1

    Soo he tries to build bridges and recognize the faith of others-how is that a bad thing?!

  • Reynardine

    My understanding of “peace be (with)(upon) him” is that, like “requiet in pace” or “вечная память”, it is used as token of respect to one who has gone on. Using any of them is a matter of courtesy, and not a profession of faith
