Ignorance

There is nothing more entertaining and surreal than watching a Muslim criticise the Pope for not condemning violence in the Catholic tradition, and then invoking the violence of Liberation Theology in South America.

Sadly for this complete nitwit, it was Cardinal Ratzinger who was credited (or accused) of almost single handedly destroying Liberation Theology.

But don't let the truth get in the way of an argument.

Hat tip to Mr Eugendies for this quote from the Pakistani Foreign Ministry: "Anyone who describes Islam as a religion as intolerant encourages violence". And CNN had footage of Friday prayers at a mosque in Iran where the response to the condemnation of the Pope was chants of "Death to America! Death to Israel!"

It's almost as if some Muslims want to prove the point the Pope didn't make in the first place.

What the buggering hell has it got to do with America or Israel? The pope is a German, he lives in the Vatican and Israel is Jewish for f**ks sake!
