Pope goes back to Babylon

 Exclusive: Joseph Farah highlights the great civilizational story Francis neglected to mention

Abraham was called by God out of Babylon and idol worship from the region of a 4,000-year-old Sumerian temple and the palaces known as the Great Ziggurat of Ur of the Chaldees. 

"Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed," 

God said in Genesis 12:1-3. It was one of the seminal moments for all people who worship the One True God. 

It led directly to the Hebrew family and eventually a nation and the Messiah Yeshua, Jesus. 

Pope Francis went back to Babylon last weekend. Oddly, he didn't say any of that. Much more could be said about Abraham, Sarah, Isaac and Jacob, Judah and the line that led to Jesus to made the all-important connection, yet, for some reason, he didn't even start the story. 

Instead, he told a story of unity – when in reality, the human race is a story of a chosen remnant of people who are triumphant, victorious and blessed like Abraham, who chose to reject his pagan roots and follow God. The pope chose to hold an interreligious meeting where people would all sing kumbaya, forgive ISIS and talk about rebuilding Babylon. 

 Once the land of Iraq had a teaming population of Christians and Jews. The Jews were left to travel across the desert with only the clothes on their backs when Israel was founded. In 2003, Iraq boasted 1.5 million Christians, but today there are less than 150,000. Neither Jews nor Christians have any designs about returning there – much less rebuilding. The pope knows what was done in this land when it was the so-called "caliphate" and witnessed unimaginable and unspeakable horrors, including beheadings and mass killings.
