Cardinal from US says Islam is not a religion but a form of government

Islam is “fundamentally a form of government” rather than a religion because when a state finds itself with a majority population of Muslims they have a duty to submit the whole population to Sharia law, the  Raymond Burke, the controversial American cardinal, has said.

Burke said individual Muslims “are lovely people” and can speak “in a very peaceful manner about questions of religion.

“But my point is this,” the Rome-based US cardinal asserted, “When they become a majority in any country then they have the religious obligation to govern that country. If that’s what the citizens of a nation want, well, then, they should just allow this to go on. But if that’s not what they want, then they have to find a way to deal with it.”

He said that in some cities in France and Belgium with large Muslim populations “there are little Muslim states” that are effectively “no-go zones” for government authorities – an assertion that is widely disputed.

But Burke claimed “these things aren’t anomalies for Islam. This is the way things are to go. … And if you do understand that and you are not at peace with the idea of being forcibly under an Islamic government, then you have reason to be afraid.”

Amid heightened tensions over ISIS-fueled terror attacks and anti-Muslim rhetoric, Burke says Islam “wants to govern the world” and Americans must decide if they are going to reassert “the Christian origin of our own nation” in order to avoid that fate.
