God Bless Our Pope, The Great, The Good

Muslim anger grows at Pope speech

Hardly a news story is it? Muslims offended. Is there anything that doesn’t offend Muslims? They seem to have a very low offence threshold. Or do they? I worked today with three Muslims, devout, good people who know I am a Catholic. Didn't seem that angry to me. No effigy burning in outpatients and St Mungo's looked to be still standing as I drove past. I suspect their "community leaders" are something of an embarrassment to them.

Don't they get the irony of it? You couldn't make this up:

"Anyone who describes Islam as a religion as intolerant encourages violence"
- Pakistan Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiight (as Dr Evil would say)

Just for the record, I don’t think the Holy Father went quite far enough. He could quite easily have mentioned all those verses in the Koran and the Haditha which urge the followers of Muhammed to violence, plunder, rapine, kidnapping and slavery. It makes pretty unpleasant reading, as Cardinal Pell recently pointed out.

Of course Islam is a religion of peace, as the media keep telling us. Meanwhile in other news:

Terror suspect is sent for trial

Muslims jailed for killing Hindus

Indian town seething with anger

'Taleban' held in Pakistan clinic

Plot suspect 'happy' after 9/11

Man, 19, charged under Terror Act

Pray tonight for our Catholic brethren in lands under the shadow of the crescent.
