dear maggie4ever,

the pope's dogma [including infallibility] should not endanger the lives of innocent people that may become victims of his words, however benevolent they may seem to be to him. Just because the pope is given a platform to have amplified speech doesn't grace him with making victims of unknowing & unrepentant dhimmis.

Also, the muslim's only alternative - as you put it - is to become christian? This is really a nutty way of asking them to be more intelligent. This confirms their [primitive as it may be] fears that the world is closing in on them. This is also another reason why they take the trek to Europe, Australia the USA etc to escape a limited and clautrophobic existence they have meted out for them in their native countries.
