With the Pope on this one...

I'm with the Pope on this one. While he did apologize for the reactions of the radical Muslims, he did NOT apologize for the quote taken from historical record which he used in his recent speech which I highly recommend you read before you pass a judgment on the Pope's use of the quote below. The quote, from a Byzantine emperor 600 years ago which went like this:

"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."

Pope Benedict didn't come up with that on his own, it's part of historical record and it was in fact relevant to his speech. But you see, you just can't explain that to radicals. And just like every other occasion where radical Muslims get all up in arms and commit acts of violence in retaliation to something they disagree with...this situation is no different. Just wait and see...the retaliation has already begun...

  1. Oh this whole thing pisses me off!

    I know he apologized just to stop the violence but he shouldnt have to!

    Muslims are allowed to trash all other religions and somehow that is okay because they are Muslim.

    I want to know, where do they get the money to live when all they ever do is protest and run around the streets?

    And furthermore, if they are so faithful, why do they even CARE what the Pope says?

    No other religion means anything to them so why do they even care?

    I am just so sick of it all.

    Their beliefs and ours are just so far apart.

    I think it is a lost cause, finding peace with them.
