in response to reader comment: Pope loses his respect by passing foolish remarks on prophet Peace be upon him

Mohammed Ali

Pope is a leader of catholics and he stands to gain or lose nothing from Muslims by saying anything about prophet Mohammed. I am glad he set political correctness to one side and spoke his mind, even though wrapped in quotes by saying what he thought of prophet Mohammed.

Who cares if they win or lose respect among Muslims? Have you thought of whether Muslims are winning respect by Danish cartoon incident, Salman Rushdie affairs or the reaction to Pope's speech. It is Muslims who lose respect by reacting violently to every remark or cartoon or book in non-Muslim countries
