He was “baptized” by the Pope. Now he leaves the Catholic Church, because of the Papacy’s acceptance of Islam.
A high-profile Italian Muslim who converted to Catholicism and was baptized by Pope Benedict XVI announced on Monday (March 25) that he will leave the church to protest its soft stance against Islam.
Egyptian-born Magdi Cristiano Allam, 61, a prominent journalist and outspoken critic of Islam, publicly entered the Catholic Church on March 22, 2008 during an Easter Vigil service, receiving baptism directly from Benedict.
After his conversion, Allam founded a small right-wing political party that lost badly in Italy’s general elections last April.
Writing on Monday in the right-wing daily Il Giornale, Allam explained that he considers his conversion to Catholicism finished “in combination with the end of (Benedict’s) pontificate.”
“The “papolatry” that has inflamed the euphoria for Francis I and has quickly archived Benedict XVI was the last straw in an overall framework of uncertainty and doubts about the Church,” he wrote.
On Friday, Francis pledged to “intensify dialogue among the various religions,” particularly Islam. Allam, who has called Islam an “intrinsically violent ideology,” said his main reason for leaving the church was its perceived “religious relativism, in particular the legitimization of Islam as a true religion.”
“Europe will end up being subjugated to Islam,” he warned in Il Giornale, unless it “finds the courage to denounce Islam as incompatible with our civilization and fundamental human rights,” and to “banish the Quran for inciting hatred, violence and death towards non-Muslims.” Europeans also need to “condemn Sharia as a crime against humanity” and to “stop the spread of mosques.”
Allam said he would remain a Christian but that he didn’t “believe in the church anymore.”

To sprinkle water on the head of infants and declare them “saved”, is not “Biblical baptism”. It is Romanism, a doctrine made by the emperor of Rome.
To accept the Papacy as a seat of a Christian leader, is not Biblical. It is submission to paganism mixed with a political ideology named “Christendom”.
To accept Islam as “a religion of peace” is nothing but devilish. It is a doctrine taught by demons.
Muslim convert Magdi Cristiano Allam seems to be on the right path. Out of the Roman Catholic religion.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
My prayer is that Allam will embrace Jesus of the Bible, and be found inside the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen.
