News Flash: The Pope is Catholic!

So the Pope, in an address to a group of representatives of science, addressed what he and others think is wrong with Islam -- and, by using a 700 year old quote from a Byzantine emporer, appears to have "offended" Muslims.

Muslims and secular leftists the world over are rushing to condemn the Pope for suggesting that Christianity is somehow superior to Islam.

Let me see here... if the Pope doesn't think Christianity is superior to Islam -- wouldn't that disqualify him for the job?

And while we're on the subject, why is it that it's perfectly acceptable to condemn and deride Christianity, but if you draw a picture of Mohammed -- you ought to be thrown in a gulag?

Wake up, folks! Muslims are killing non-muslims (and Muslims, too, it turns out) in the name of Islam. It is an idea deeply entrenched in Islam, and it has a long history of it. The spread of Islam by the sword is, in fact, what ultimately triggered the eeeevil crusades in the first place. If you don't believe me, look it up yourself. If you won't believe me or look it up yourself -- then apparently the belief that there is nothing the matter with Islam is a religious belief to you. The belief that no religion but Christianity can be criticized is one of your religious beliefs -- it is an idea you believe is true based on faith.

It was not irresponsible or wrong for the Pope to say what he said. The Pope is doing his job. The irresponsibility comes in when the media fails to read and understand the entire dissertation and the context and prints a headline like "Pope Slams Islam".

The MSM is lazy, sensationalistic, and has an anti-judeo-christian agenda, that is more clear today than ever before.
