- Pope says Islam is violent
- Islamics react with violence
- Pope apologizes
It was not smart of the Pope to quote that 14th century sentence about Islam and violence. But it’s hard to argue that Islam is a religion of non-violence if, every time Islamics are offended, they react with violence.
What gets me is how Islamic extremists think that murdering an old woman by shooting her in the back – a nun who has spent decades healing those in need – advances their cause in any way. And I wonder how they can live with themselves. Pathetic. Despicable. Evil.
Some other thoughts about this issue:
- The Pope was Right
- The Pope Must Die
- Double standards
- Stop Calling Us Violent or We’ll Kill You
- This is What a Religion of Peace Looks Like
Either we get real about this and stop being afraid to speak the truth, or we will already have lost.
