The Truth Hurts!
Benedict's words got them angry...
My earlier post today about the Holy Father's comments concerning Islam was right on target. The truth hurts obviously. Muslim leaders are crying foul. I just hope the Pope - or his 'handlers' don't try to sugar coat what he stated. The facts stand for themselves and history testifies to his words. Here is the article:
"Muslim religious leaders have accused Pope Benedict XVI of quoting anti-Islamic remarks during a speech at a German university this week.
Questioning the concept of holy war, he quoted a 14th-Century Christian emperor who said Muhammad had brought the world only "evil and inhuman" things.A senior Pakistani Islamic scholar, Javed Ahmed Gamdi, said jihad was not about spreading Islam with the sword. (Is he brain dead or what? What the hell is happening in the world? What a pack of liars!)
Turkey's top religious official asked for an apology for the "hostile" words.
In Indian-administered Kashmir, police seized copies of newspapers which reported the Pope's comments to prevent any tension.
A Vatican spokesman, Father Frederico Lombardi, said he did not believe the Pope's comments were meant as a harsh criticism of Islam." [snip] BBC News
I'm concerned about the Holy Father's upcoming visit to Turkey however. Let us pray for his safety. The third secret of Fatima said the Pope was killed - we don't want this to happen to him. Pray!
