Christianity have not been all about peace and godloving... let me remind you of the crusade ....the christian religion is as violent as any other... and to answer the POPES simple question islam came to bring down the violence,spread the words of giving each other respect, treat your neighbor like the way you wanted to be treated, respect womens free will and free the slaves. They used the same tactic (brutal or not) that the christians used to spread the religion…. The dear person whom Pope spoke about at that time burned and hanged women for beeing a witch. …Now that is not free the womens right and correct me if I am wrong but while islam were trying to free the slaves the christans had them now till the latest 90:is…. I hope that I have answered Popes Question….
