Catholic Facebook group Promotes Islamphobia

It was so amazing to be at the rally for Palestine today. The reality of misinformation and Islamphobia in the Catholic Church has been highlighted by this item on the facebook page of Nationalrosaryforaustralia It would be too easy to unfriend people like this. I prefer to engage them with facts and denounce the values they represent in their litany of hate.

I hope those clergy and other Catholics who are mutual friends will also add their voice of protest to the sentiments of this group. It's time to challenge Islamphobia in my Church

The follwoing text is taken from the Nationalrosaryforaustralia Facebook page today:
