Islam's reaction to the Holy Father's comments:

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

Submitted by Capt Dave Petteys (United States), Sep 20, 2006 at 01:22

What the Pope has said is true. Were not two news people recently "converted" in Gaza with guns to their heads?The irony is the violent reaction to the comments on this Islamic violence! To see front pages of newspapers filled yet again with little men in funny caps and beards with clenched fists is getting wearisome.

If the Islamics want to join the 21st Century, they are going to have to leave behind their demand that the whole modern world tip toe around their medieval hyper-sensitivity. Free speech is not circumscribed by it's being "offensive" unless you are on an American University campus where the only virtue is tolerance of everything and belief in nothing.
