In a broader talk rejecting any religious motivation for violence, Benedict cited the words of a 14th-century Byzantine emperor who characterized some teachings of Muhammad as "evil and inhuman," particularly "his command to spread by the sword the faith."
And this is what Popey said:
Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.
So okay, that's being taken way out of context (cause apparently the Pope didn't agree with that - he was just using it as an example), but then, those schmucks went to do this:
"We tell the worshipper of the cross (the Pope) that you and the West will be defeated, as is the case in Iraq, Afghanistan, Chechnya," said a Web statement by the Mujahideen Shura Council, an umbrella group led by Iraq's branch of al Qaeda.
"We shall break the cross and spill the wine," said the statement, posted on Sunday on an Internet site often used by al Qaeda and other militant groups.
Over-reaction, much? And of course, there was the Italian nun killing which could be related. That's right, you idiots. Go ahead and prove Ratzinger right. Holy war's the answer to EVERYTHING these days, isn't it? Haihhh. It's getting old. The Pope's getting old. He might have made a mistake. His words could have been taken out of context. Or, he could just be goading you extremist "I solve everything with a bomb" militants to solve this issue with a bomb. Let it slide. He's already issued an apology. Don't prove him right by picking up that sword. Just go bitch about it on your blog or something.
Sometimes, I think religion causes more problems than it solves.
