I am not judging just looking for information.
Paul I agree. Its a Holy Book by the Last of Gods Prophets so it is merely giving a Sacred Testament the respect it deserves. It dosent make the Pope a Moslem, it shows he is tolerant, respectful of others beliefs and to the Word of Gods Prophet. He also kissed the Talmet in Jerusalem which is the Old Testament but doesnt make him Jewish or any of us Jewish, yet we say Jewish prayers, sing Jewish Psalms, pray to a Jew, follow a Jew, and attempt to live a Jews Words and Teachings, and hope to spend eternity with a Jew
Patrick you say "Its a Holy Book by the Last of Gods Prophets"? I'm not questioning whether Mohamad was the "Last". I'm questioning whether he was even a prophet.
Back when JP II kissed the Koran I was in a discussion at one of those voice messenger services talking about it. There was a Lebanese Catholic there that was very concerned about this, who was convinced we were in the end times because JP II kissed the Koran. The Lebanese Catholic was a refugee from the Lebanese Cival War who was then living in Sweden. When the Lebanese Catholic left the discussion I said I'll agree with him if and when JP II kisses the Talmud.
Patrick are you sure that JP II kissed the Talmud? That is very troubling if he did, much worse than him kissing the Koran. The Talmud is not the Old Testament. The Talmud is a commentary written by rabbis after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD. It was compiled between 200 AD and 500 AD and it speaks very derogatory about Jesus Christ and Our Blessed Mother. I mean very very derogatory.
Are you sure you don't mean that JP II kissed the Tanakh Patrick? The Tanakh is the canon of the Hebrew Bible. Some modern scholars believe that the process of canonization of the Tanakh was finalized after the life of Jesus, up to 200 AD. Like the Protestant Bible the Tanakh does not include the deuterocanonical books. Luther followed the Tanakh when he compiled his Bible, that's why it's 7 books and part of Daniel and part of Esther short, the deuterocanonical books. The Catholic Bible followed the Septuagint which was a translation to Greek by Jewish scribes in Alexandria around 300 BC which includes the deuterocanonical books. A Protestant convert may recognize the deuterocanonical books as the apocrypha books.
Whether JP II kissed the Talmud or not (yuck, I dread the thought) his Papacy, between kissing the Koran, the Assisi gatherings and many other things is riddled with indifferentism. Myself and many other Catholics were hoping and praying that Pope Benedict did not continue with the Assisi gatherings, but he did.
This is what happens when the Oath Against Modernism gets abandoned.
