    Well, the world of political correctness now claims its latest victory in the form of a completely absurd apology from the Pope for the heinous sin of quoting from a 14th Century emperor to an academic audience.

    The level of intolerance for any amount of criticism- be it present day (Danish cartoons) or 500 years in the past- on the part of certain worldwide Muslim leaders is astounding.

    And now we see church burnings in Palestinian territories and the murder of a nun in Somalia. Makes you consider that perhaps that chap had it right 500 years ago:

    "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".

    all this anger over this one particular quote, and muslims shout from the rooftops how islam is a tolerant, peaceful religion, yet arent christians pretty much unwelcome if not threatened in some muslim countries?

    and after insisting islam is a peaceful religion, churches are promptly torched and nuns are shot in the back. they`re not violent, but someone will have to die over a cartoon or a quote, right? utterly and undeniably preposterous.

    i was especially amused to see one individual claiming "ONLY MUSLIMS" could understand jihad ( give me a break ) and that jihad was nonviolent was he kidding? how can you say a holy war is nonviolent?

    the point the pope was making was that no modern religion should spread faith via violence. why dont these protesting muslims come out with the same fury and anger against al qaeda and other extremists committing beheadings, kidnappings, suicide bombings all in the name of allah, if they are so concerned about their religion being viewed as violent?

    comments a pope might make are negligible, compared with the damage al qaeda is doing ON A REGULAR BASIS to the world`s view of the muslim faith!!! actions speak louder than words. the muslim radicals are the REAL hitlers, the mussolini`s, the blasphemers of islam, not the pope!!!!? where is the outrage against them? why arent they out to kill bin laden, like they would a danish freaking cartoonist?!! why arent they saying al qaeda is the culture of dark and medieval perspective, which yearns to return us to the crusades?
    with all these beheadings and terrorism, isnt that what THEY are doing to themselves?

    by not recognizing this, its the definition of hypocrisy.

    Perhaps because they're scared of al Qaeda. Nuns don't shoot back.
