Pope still trying to defend his stupid quote?

Posted by QB on October 13, 2006

Pope Benedict XVI has added an explanatory note on his quote on which he included in his speech. The damage is already done your holiness and you do not understand this because you are blinded with your religious beliefs.

The quote of Manuel II “”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.”

The following is the explanation given by his old his highness.

“In the Muslim world, this quotation has unfortunately been taken as an expression of my personal position, thus arousing understandable indignation,” the note said.

“I hope that the reader of my text can see immediately that this sentence does not express my personal view of the Quran, for which I have the respect due to the holy book of a great religion,”. “In quoting the text of the Emperor Manuel II, I intended solely to draw out the essential relationship between faith and reason. On this point I am in agreement with Manuel II, but without endorsing his polemic,” he said.

Pope is really not a very intelligent person or maybe his age has taken away his rational thinking. You quoted Manuel II as the part of the speech and you have the same understanding that Islam has brought nothing but evil and inhumane and is spread using sword. Read your statement again and come up with some different approach.

Pope Benedict XVI you are no better than any other religious scholar of Islam or Judaism who preaches hatred in the name of religion. I have no respect for any such scholar no matter what religious belief they teaches and preaches. Shut up now and don’t open your mouth again. Keep smiling and waving hand from the window.

    Agreed, the Pope is either a fool or he is deliberately trying to stir up trouble. Sadly the evidence points to the later.

    But come think about it: Was Manuel 11 wrong in his assertion?
    What new thing did Mohammed bring except violence and bloodshed? People point to American wars on terror as example, but America does not represent Christianity.
    But almost every violence perpetrated by Moslems have been carried out in obedience to Islamic injunctions.
    If you hate the murderous image, remove it from yourself: Stop killing people; who is to blame for 9/11 ? Mohammed of course!

    Those who denouce the Pope are only against him because he did not lie as they expected him to.

    Nope, I really don’t see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?

    So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people. They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President’s security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winning and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males between the ages 17 and 40 alone lest they be guilty of profiling.

    Let’s send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and other dunder-headed attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, get the message .

    As the writer of the award winning story “Forrest Gump” so aptly put it, “Stupid is as stupid does.”

    Come on people wake up!!! Keep this going. Pass it on to everyone in your
    address book. Our Country and our troops need our support.

    Live simply.
    Love generously.
    Care deeply.
    Speak kindly.
    Leave the rest to God.

  3. Very long comments from right wing Christian Conservative is as biased as it gets. Get your facts from the history and you will learn that US the good people have killed and are killing people are greater in numbers which were commited by the terrorists in the name of religion.

    It’s beyond biased, it’s just silly. This list is filled with inaccuracies and lies, the author apparently doesn’t know the difference between politics and religion. One could write an identical list of atrocities committed by Christians and it would be equally as meaningless. The author is correct though in that religion is often used to inspire hatred and violence, this list is a wonderful example of a Christian doing exactly that. This sort of “thinking” is part of the problem, not part of the solution.

  5. Thank you Doug. You understand my point of view. I hit hard on Jews and Sunnis and Shias for all their wrong doings with Christians which to me is showing them the true religion from their own scriptures. I respect people religious beliefs.
