Pope says Muslim practice of spreading the faith by sword unreasonable - Muslims freak out

This is as predictable as a full moon.

Lecturing at his alma mater, the University at Regensburg, Pope Benedict XVI briefly talked about the unreasonableness of spreading the faith through violence. The subject was the need to reconcile faith with reason. As an aside, He quoted a very ancient debate between a Byzantine Emperor and an Educated Persian saying Mohammed's command to spread by the sword the faith he preached was evil and inhuman.

His holiness admitted the quote was startling in it's brusqueness, but went on to endorse fully the view that "spreading the faith through violence is something unreasonable".

Predicably the Muslim world is going bug fucking nuts in response.

I found it particularly ironic that Muslims protested the characterization of Islam as being violent by trying to bomb churches in Gaza.

I don't have a problem with Facts.

After the Pope clarified what he said about religious violence being unreasonable, Muslims torched Catholic Churches and KILLED a nun.

That's a fact. It happened. If you don't like it don't be mad at me, be mad at those unreasoning zealots who make all muslims look bad.
