Off With His Head

Muslims deplore Pope speech, want apology:

'We demand that he apologizes personally, and not through (Vatican) sources, to all Muslims for such a wrong interpretation,' said Beirut-based Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah, one of the world's top Shi'ite Muslim clerics.

The Pope on Tuesday repeated criticism of the Prophet Mohammad by the 14th century Byzantine Emperor Manuel II Palaeologus, who said everything Mohammad brought was evil 'such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.'
Is the pope wrong? Enlighten me.

Yeah, the sword doesn't quite get it anymore. How about "his command to spread the faith he preached by strapping on explosives and crashing passenger airplanes into buildings?"

We're still waiting for an apology, too.

I"m not a Catholic, but I think as the spiritual leader of a huge segment of the world's population, the Pope has not only the right, but the moral responsibility to state his views and use his influence for the good.

The Pope is an infidel because he can read aloud from a book.
