esteem: the hard line?

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

Submitted by Donald O (United States), Sep 25, 2006 at 19:50

thank you pope for taking the hard line against ignorant islam. "we Esteem you " - Was that a typo? Does this infallible soul have any idea what words he uses? Esteem means 'admire'. Is the infallibly intelligent pope just winding us up for some euro-politicos?

In any case, it proves to me that christianity is nothing but a set of political groups still trying to live in the past - but at least it's not the violent past. Using the term esteem has made the pope 1 giant step towards a world-class dhimmi stooge. He doesn't get my vote. thanks again pope for once again clarifying my doubts to your worldly status. cheers
