DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) – A group of ex-Muslim converts to Catholicism are criticizing Pope Francis’ approach to Islam.

“If Islam is in itself a good religion, as you seem to teach, why did we become Catholic?” they ask. “Do not your words question the goodness of the choice we made … at the risk of our lives?”
