pope justifies dhimmi outlook

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict

Submitted by Donald O (United States), Sep 28, 2006 at 23:34

the crime of their latest outrage and reaction is that now you have a [spiritual world] leader willing to compromise the dignity of those that were killed by his mistake with words of dhimmism. It's sickening to see any world leaders cowing to pressure from politcal forces to accept anything for a short-term truce. It's even more depressing for the pope or others to expect others take their lead in that behavior.
