According to The Express,
In his homily at St Stephen’s Cathedral on September 11 he said: “Will there be a third Islamic attempt to conquer Europe? Many Muslims think this and wish this and say that Europe is at its end.”
Cardinal Schönborn later clarified: “Europe’s Christian legacy is in danger, because we Europeans have squandered it. That has absolutely nothing to do with Islam nor with the refugees. It is clear that many Islamists would like to take advantage of our weakness, but they are not responsible for it. We are.”
That Europeans have forgotten how to be Christians and forgotten how to have babies (related phenomena, I’m sure) is more to blame for the Islamification of former Christendom than the Muslims themselves are. True. Very true.
And maybe His Eminence can tell us a little something about how that happened.
