His head bowed and hands clasped in front of him, Pope Francis stood Saturday for two minutes of silent prayer facing east inside one of Istanbul's most important mosques, as he shifted gears toward more religious affairs on the second leg of his three-day visit to mainly Muslim Turkey.
Following in the footsteps of Pope Benedict XVI who visited Turkey in 2006, Francis prayed alongside the Grand Mufti of Istanbul, Rahmi Yaran, who had his palms turned toward the sky in a Muslim prayer, inside the 17th-century Sultan Ahmet mosque.
"May God accept it," Yaran told the pope at the conclusion of a poignant moment of Christian-Muslim understanding.

The pope seems to be a good man, but he only represents Catholics. He doesn't represent Christians.
There aren't multiple paths to God.

There aren't multiple paths to God. This pope is terrible. The Gospel has been preached to ALL nations time and again for the past 2000 years.
Catholicism is NOT Biblical Christianity.
This pope is just setting the stage for one world religion and the coming of the anti-christ to power.
