Mad Catholics? Uh, Oh.

Reader comment on item: The Vatican Confronts Islam

Submitted by LDC (United States), Jul 5, 2006 at 16:08

A sleeping giant stirs awake--might also be the title of this article by Dr. Pipes, in his continuing string of insightful commentary on radical Islam. Unfortunately (for us in the West), the Roman Catholic Church is a largely de-clawed eccleastical organization under great stress these days. What the old red-hatted Cardinals think about how Christians are treated in Muslim countries will not significantly influence events.

Like the Pope who calls for an end to war every Christmas while the world collectively yawns, Vatican statements about Muslim treatment of Christians means little.
