"The Holy Father is very sorry that some passages of his speech may have appeared offensive to Muslims and were interpreted in a way he hadn't intended them to be''
Some Moslems were so PO'ed at being called violent that they went out and bombed churches! West Bank Churches Attacked as Muslims Protest Pope's Remarks on Islam Yeah, that makes a lot of sense, "I'll prove how peace loving and sweet I am by destroying your house of worship. If that don't work, I'll go kill a few of your friends and family members so you'll know that I'm really a harmless, fun loving guy." Sounds to me like they fit the definition of hypocrite:
1-a person who puts on a false appearance of virtue or religion
2-a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings to be offended.
I found this gem at FullosseousFlap's Dental Blog and he got it from Michelle Malkin.
My friend Lorenzo Vidino, counterterrorism expert and author of al Qaeda in Europe, sent the above photo and this note:
Attached is a picture of the Pope that is circulating in Qaeda-friendly chat rooms and websites. Lovely (and predictable) that they call for his beheading. The script in red calls for the Pope's beheading. The rest of the translation:
"Swine and servant of the cross, worships a monkey on a cross, hateful evil man, stoned Satan, may Allah curse him, blood-sucking vampire."
Islam, the Peaceful Religion. Yeah, right. And I'm 21, 6' tall and weigh 100 pounds. Isn't telling falsehoods supposed to be a sin in the Koran as well as in most religions?
All this makes about as much sense as one of those guys who beat their wife/lover/girlfriend to death while all the time telling her that he's only doing it because he loves her................
