    finally a pope with balls...

    and yet what he said was proven a day later.. he said Islamists are extremist violent people.. the Muslims obviously disagreed, and how? by throwing molotov cocktails at a church in Nablus......



    i honestly think world war 3 will be Islam vs. Rest of World.

    Those in the Muslim world who are offended seem to be the type who provide their own context for feeling slighted by Pope Ben's remarks.

    It doesn't appear they will suffer any exploration of their intent by anyone, for any purpose.

    I guess we'd better watch for terrorist acts in Vatican City, huh?

    BTW-

    Where is the relevant commentary from the "tolerance" crowd?

    Oh, that's right-they don't do Catholic...

    Had it been the other way around, and one of the most prominent Islamic leaders saying that Christianity was "evil and inhuman," no doubt the Vatican would be outraged.

    I doubt that he wasn't expecting a reaction.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"

    I think the pope is a joke. Besides being head of the Vatican (political role), what's the point of him religious-wise?

    I remember seeing this past line

    "it is absolutely necessary for the salvation of every creature to be united to the Roman Pontiff"

    WTF?!

    One wonders.

    Can they possibly be appeased by anything the Pope would subsequently say?

    I doubt it.

    In any case, shifting the shoe from one foot to the other, I wonder if an Islamic cleric could be counted on to backpedal as the Pope has in the event one of them said something (that is to say, abnormally) offensive?

    Oh, wait; they have-with regularity.

    You can hear more inflammatory rhetoric in just about any mosque you'd care to visit, according to the reportage.

    Did all the previous Popes not have any?

    He was quoting what someone else had said in the 3rd Century or thereabouts. Those were not his own words. The whole thing has been taken out of context, even by you.

    The average cleric doesn't have the visibility or esteem that the Pope has.

    True enough, though the the Islamic rioters, having prompted the expression of regret from the Pope, seem to be communicating very visibly, don't they?


    Do you suppose the Muslim clerics would forego their incitements long enough to be polled?

    Insofar as your point is true, what would prevent us from assigning the Islamic "spokesman" role to a cleric given to especially inflammatory rhetoric, and investing in him the stature of primacy, as tantamount to the pontiff?

    Do you think his fellow clerics would deign to shift their chairs away from his, as if his words were wafted upon gusts of verbal flatulence?

    By the same token, I'm quite sure there are a few Catholics who may feel the Pope has overstepped, though whether or not we'll hear from them is yet to be seen.

    Are you aware of any Muslim voices calling for a moderation of the Islamic response?
