The truth hurts

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict Criticizes Islam [in Regensburg]

Submitted by Shirley Sacks (United States), Sep 19, 2006 at 16:47

Mohammed DID conquer by the sword. All the pope is telling is the truth, and even if it an opinion, surely the Pope is entitled to one. Islam says the worst things about the Jews and Christians, but we don't go killing the people who say it. Free speech hurts when it hits the button. Islam is violent. The countries that adopt Islam do not cherish human rights. The pope should never have apologized.
