The group has also warned of terror attacks at Christmas time

A group linked to Islamic State (ISIS) has released a propaganda poster depicting Pope Francis being beheaded.

The picture, which the Catholic Herald has chosen not to show, depicts a jihadist standing over the torso of a prisoner in an orange jumpsuit while holding the head of the Pope.

The terrorist, clad in a white scarf and khaki, is standing in front of several damaged and destroyed buildings. Next to the Pope’s head is written “Jorge Mario Bergoglio”.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reports that the Wafa Media Foundation, a propaganda outlet with links to ISIS, produced the image. It comes just days after the group circulated another poster depicting a man driving a car towards St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, warning of a Christmas terror attack at the Vatican.

Analysts have warned that the terror group may step up so-called “lone wolf” attacks in Europe as its self-proclaimed state collapses in Iraq and Syria, especially around Christmas time.

In December last year, a terrorist linked to ISIS drove a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin, killing 11 people and injuring 56.

On All Saints Day this year, Pope Francis prayed for the victims of recent attacks throughout the world, saying: “We ask the Lord to convert the hearts of terrorists and free the world from hatred and homicidal folly that abuses the name of God, spreading death.”

CP&S comment – The hatred of Militant Islam for Christ and His Church knows no limits. Christians everywhere, and in particular in countries or areas where Islamic terrorism is prominent, should be especially careful this Christmas season, being always on the look out for any suspicious activity. But no amount of vigilance is full proof protection in the face of such a demonised, determined enemy. In the words of Father Z: “Be always in a state of grace! GO TO CONFESSION.”

    So, ISIS don’t care for him. either.
    Some people on here would be highly pleased to see the Head of the Church removed.
    … If not quite in that fashion

    theda620: I don’t wish to take a firm position, but as our esteemed “moreagnostic41” (aka Toadstool) just above you observes, there are some (not including – imo – the owners of or other commenters on this blog) who are sanguine about the event being discussed. I decline to look at the propaganda picture in question, so my non-opinion concerning it is irrelevant.
