Terrorist group ISIS has reportedly named Pope Francis its number one enemy. According to a recent publication by the terror group, Francis is hated for being a “non-believer” and defending homosexual people. 

 

Pope Francis also actively seeks open communication and understanding between Christians and Muslims, which ISIS has denounced. 

 

The group wrote, "While previous popes spoke against Islam due to the actual reality they faced, based on mutual enmity between the pagan Christians and monotheistic Muslims, recent popes – and especially Pope Francis – have attempted to paint a picture of heartwarming friendship, seeking to steer Muslim masses away from the obligation of waging jihad against disbelief.” 

 

"Completely disregarding his own Church's doctrine of judging homosexuals as immoral for engaging in the perverted act of sodomy, Francis has again sidestepped religion for the sake of public opinion."

 

ISIS often uses propaganda spread messages of jihad.
