Pope offends the Muslim world

The Pope put his foot where his mouth should have been… and managed to offend millions of Muslims, worldwide. The issue was regarding the propensity of Muslims for violence.

The Muslim world has responded by: demanding an apology, burning effigies, issuing death threats and in some cases going on rampages… I would say that this is violence.

Things that make you go “hmmmmmmmmm”

    Yes, the ABC news tonight had an interesting order to their stories. Firstly they had the separatist bombings in Thailand (“muslim extremists”), next they had the story of the Pope’s faux-pas. I’m not sure if the media isn’t facilitating divide between Muslim and “others”.

    I’m sure it is, Jenny. Our opinions are not our own, alas.
