Roman officials turned the Vatican into a Muslim holy place by covering up nude statues during a visit by Iran’s Rouhani, a ruthless Islamic killer; the Capitolini Museum was the scene of the crime. Pope Francis should have spoken out prior to the visit, he had two choices, neither of which he took. Romans should be outraged.
The modesty measures were imposed prior to Rouhani’s meeting Monday with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. Any directive to cover up the statues came from the prime minister’s office directly, and not from city officials who normally run the museum, according to a Rome city official.Iran President Hassan Rouhani (L) exchanges gifts with Pope Francis at the Vatican January 26, 2016.

This is an embarrassment to the artists, the Christian people and the good citizens of Rome. Their shibboleth down through the ages has been “when in Rome do as the Romans do.”
Political correctness by Pope Francis is a show of weakness when the likes of Rouhani and the Iranian Red Guards are supporting killers in Syria, Hezbollah and the Nusra Front. Iran is responsible for exporting their Shia fanaticism into neighboring states. Killers of the first rate, they will not stop until they conquer Israel.
How many Christians have been liquidated by Iranians surrogates in Syria, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon. The Pope put those questions aside. Don’t forget, Islam is a religion of peace and now the Pope has signaled that Christianity is a religion of accommodation.
