Dealing with ISIS: A Catholic Perspective

Well, a different viewpoint.  If you visit some Catholic sites, or pay attention to the media, it appears that Catholics agree: all religions get you there, Islam really just wants to give peace a chance, and if there are problems it's because of the Great Satan's foreign policies.  

Nonetheless, difficult as it is to believe, not all Catholics see it this way.  The post is by a priest who reminds us there is another side to history that doesn't always fit with The Narrative.  Take it for what it's worth.  I'm leery of any too simplistic assessments of a complex series of events.  Still, to go into a problem with the somewhat excessive guilt cum narcissism view that it's all our fault, is of no value whatsoever.  If this article isn't a completely unpacked version, it's at least worth looking at to remember the rest of the story that all too often we want to ignore.
