Blood-thirsty ISIS terrorists threaten ‘Christmas blood’ and release photo of a beheaded Pope Francis. This news story does NOT contain any graphic images, but simply explains the news:
A pro-ISIS group has promised to shed “Christmas blood” this season with the release of a new propaganda photo featuring a beheaded Pope Francis….
Given the nature and use of the name “Bergoglio,” the poster not only means to threaten the leader of Catholicism, but also to insult the very nature of his office. Catholic doctrine teaches that Christ instituted the papal office in Matthew 16:18 when he gave the “keys to the kingdom of heaven” to His disciple “Simon Bar-Jonah,” renaming him to “Peter the rock” upon whom he would build his Church. Though the tradition of Popes changing their names began officially in 533, the tradition flows from Christ renaming Simon to Peter. By ISIS referring to Pope Francis as “Bergoglio,” they intend to demean his office title as the Vicar of Christ.
