Quote:
Benedict quoted from a book recounting a conversation between 14th century Byzantine Christian Emperor Manuel Paleologos II and a Persian scholar on the truths of Christianity and Islam.

“The emperor comes to speak about the issue of jihad, holy war,” the pope said. “He said, I quote, ’Show me just what Mohammed 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.”’

Benedict did not explicitly agree with the statement nor repudiate it.

“Benedict, the author of such unfortunate and insolent remarks, is going down in history for his words,” he said. “He is going down in history in the same category as leaders such as (Adolf) Hitler and (Benito) Mussolini.”

Mmmm....

I wouldn't exactly expect the pope to be a religious relativist.

That COexitst message will take along time to be in affect. If you go to highschool African americans stick with there own, asians with there own etc... So how can we co-exist if the kids can't and to talk about nations and races with hundreds of years of hatred towards each other.

"The late Pope John Paul II spent over 25 years to build bridges and links with the Muslim community. He showed the world that its perception of Islam was false and that we are peace-loving people.

"The Ramadhan Foundation is disappointed that the current Pope has not followed the example of his predecessor; it is essential in today's world that we link together and encourage a wider understanding of our different faiths, celebrating our religious differences is essential in a ever expanding world."

While this may be true, what gives anyone the right to essentially call Muslims, "things only evil and inhuman?"

What would you think if a Muslim cleric called Catholics "evil and inhuman?"

The Pope made a mistake. He shouldn't have done this.

What gives the right for clerics to call us the Great Satan or infidels? They complain and kill for every little God Damn Thing. Pre-schoolers

It does not seem that most muslims in these countries want to bridge the religons together.

They don't have that right. And neither does the Pope.

And Christians have never persecuted/killed/tortured Muslims

*cough*gitmo*cough*crusades*cough*

I never said we were innocent. But the biggest persecutors are there own people. They need to evolve as a religon and stop taking everything so personally as do the baptist, mormon's catholics etc.
