Tolerance when applied to evil like beheading, subjgation, genocide, ethnic cleansing, supremacism is not only evil but also suicidal. Pope Francis knows that they are slaughtering his flock in the millions, but he is disposed to collaborate with them anyway. According to the Daily Star, Pope Francis said Tuesday that while it was “almost impossible” to have a dialogue with ISIS insurgents, the door should not be shut. The leader of the Roman Catholic Church explained that he never considers anything a lost cause. “I never say ‘all is lost,’ never. Maybe there can’t be a dialogue but you can never shut a door,” he told reporters on his plane returning from Strasbourg, France, where he addressed the European Parliament and the Council of Europe.  “It is difficult, one could say almost impossible, but the door is always open,” he said in response to a question about whether it would be possible to communicate with the militants.  Ultra-radical ISIS has captured thousands of square miles of territory in Iraq and Syria, beheaded or crucified prisoners, massacred non-Sunni Muslim civilians in its path and displaced tens of thousands of people. But hey.. what the fuck? The Iraqi government, backed by U.S.-led airstrikes, has been trying to push back ISIS, although Shiite Muslim militias and Kurdish peshmerga have helped contain the Sunni insurgents and repelled them in some provinces. Seemingly not enraged by the situation, Pope Francis repeated comments made earlier this year that while it was legitimate to fight an “unjust aggressor,” but once again, he is of the opinion that this had to be supported by an international consensus. 
According to Breitbart, Pope Francis objects to the idea of beefing up security.  But Pope Francis also told journalists that the threat of terrorism is not the only horror weighing on the world.  Recent reports, in fact, suggest that threats to the Pope’s life are very real. Some have noted, for instance, that the Pope’s decision to live in the Santa Marta residence, while highly symbolic, is also risky. It is a hotel, after all, and receives everything from the outside: pasta, bread, meat, and other foodstuffs. Moreover, it is separated from Italy only by an old brick wall.  Earlier in November, Father Juan Carlos Molina from Argentina told the pope to “be careful, they could kill you” in reference to ISIS’ threats.  Pope Francis only replied that it was the best thing to happen. Father Molina told the Argentinian daily La Nacion that the pope’s words were not of resignation to his fate but of an understanding of martyrdom as part of being the leader of the church.  Meanwhile, Pope Francis is set to visit Turkey to address relations with Islam and persecution of Christians in the Middle East. As the fourth pope to visit Turkey, the pope will seek to initiate a dialogue with Muslims and Christians in a time when there is an increased number of Christian minorities who are persecuted because of their faith, The Guardian noted. Most of the Christians in Iraq and Syria who fled to escape ISIS now live as refugees in Turkey.  Francis has spoken out about the ongoing war with ISIS before, and has distanced himself from supporting the U.S.-led airstrikes that are striking terror targets in Iraq and Syria. “War is never a satisfactory way to right injustices,” Francis said during an inter-faith colloquium hosted in Belgium in September.
