Frank Gaffney, a national security adviser for Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, thinks the pope is a secret Muslim.
Gaffney made the accusation in an article posted on The Conservative Chronicle.
“Pope Francis has said that Muslims and Christians worship the same god. This goes against the belief of most Christians,” said Gaffney. “He’s likely a Muslim sleeper agent who managed to infiltrate the Vatican.”
This is not the first time Gaffney, who worked in the Reagan administration, has made accusations about Muslims agents penetrating Western governments. He has also accused Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin of being affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Several Republicans have also accused President Obama of being a secret Muslim. A 2015 CNN/ORC poll found 43 percent of Republicans believed Obama is a Muslim, even though he has been pictured attending church, drinking beer and eating pork.
