Yay for Pope Benny!

Reader comment on item: The Vatican Confronts Islam

Submitted by Richard B. (Canada), Jul 5, 2006 at 21:03

About time. No, I don't expect to see churches or synagogues sprout all over the Middle East. Nor do I expect the rate of martyrdom of Christians and apostate Muslims to let up because of this latest policy change from the Vatican. What HAS happened, however, is a radical shift in thinking. Appeasement cannot work with tyrants and supremacist ideologies. They must be confronted and destroyed, just as Hitler had his comeuppance in a dirty bunker in Berlin. Napoleon had his Waterloo on June 18, 1815. Saddam was captured looking every bit like a rat that he was. And Islam will have its Armaggeddon, I'm guessing sooner rather than later. FINALLY the church in Rome has awakened. Only time will tell if it is too late or not.
