“Muhammad was married to a Roman Catholic nun” - Catholic/Jesuit conspiracy theories

I literally cannot count the number of conspiracy theories that attempt to identify almost any so-called “evil” with the Catholic Church, and/or the Jesuits. However, it is the conspiracy theory that the Catholic Church was somehow behind the beginning of the Islamic religion, which may be the most bizarre. I first came across this theory in my early dispensational days (this was the first theological system that I came into contact with shortly after I left the JWs) via a booklet/comic book produced by Jack T. Chick of Chick Publications, with the title, The Prophet, that was given to me by Baptist friend (FYI: Jack T. Chick is a notorious independent Baptist, anti-Catholic, who has produced numerous anti-Catholic tracts, books, etc.).

I was reminded of this ridiculous conspiracy theory earlier today via a link provided by individual on an email list that I belong to. The link was to an YouTube video with the title: Walter J. Veith Islamic - Catholic Connection - Full Lecture. I hesitate to admit that I watched/listened to the whole video (in my defense, I am retired), but I was curious. At approximately the 1:06ff. mark, Mr. Veith stated:

You see, Muhammad was married to a Roman Catholic nun; the whole family was Roman Catholic, and he received these doctrines straight from the pits of the bottomless pit. That’s what the Bible says. So this doctrine started spreading, and they used Islam first to counteract Christianity, later on splitting it up to get rid of the enemies of Christ. Oh, to get rid of Christ’s followers and then get rid of all the enemies of Rome. ( “Islamic - Catholic Connection”, 1:06ff.)

The “doctrines” that Mr. Veith was referring to were from an onscreen projection (displayed in the vide0) of material from a brief article by Archbishop Fulton Sheen (“Mary and the Moslems”), accessed from this http://www.heartsare.com/page4.html website (see also page3), and included the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary and Her virginity.

I am truly at a loss for words…

Grace and peace,

David

David,
I was told that Muhammad's wife was an albino Opus Dei nun who practiced Mithraistic Kabbalism and had the blessing of Pope Joan. In fact, my source tells me that she may very well have been Pope Joan reincarnated. She wrote an extensive commentary on the parable of the wheat and the tares and decisively pronounced that the field was actually a sea of reeds, not a field at all because of an errant transcription by early Jesuit monks in Corinth. So that should settle it.

Hi Dave, It is truly sad to see such things. I have run into a variation of this theme lately on Beggars All. Some of the commenters advanced the notion that due in part to Catholic priests promoting Marian doctrines in Arabia in the 4th-6th centuries caused Islam to spring up as a result.


God bless!

Chick publications are hilarious.

This is a crazy conspiracy theory. Islam was well under way before Muhamad was even given Mary the Copt as a concubine and gift. She was one of four prostitutes and Muhammad already had probably all of his 13 wives before Mary entered his court. Muslims can only ever marry other muslims. This is why Mary the Copt changed religion on the way to Al-Madinah. The following link covers most of it.

Hi Dubbie,

Thanks much for the link. I found Ted's/Walid Shoebat's post to to be spot on, and I also greatly appreciated his life story.
