Catholic Church Looking Better All the Time
Well, I'm not exactly thinking of converting, but I have never felt more brotherhood with the Catholic faith than I have since Pope Benedict took the helm.
The Moslems are always outraged about something. They are always demanding apoligies. They are a virtual grievence machine. This time it was because the Pope quoted someone from the 10th century (which is still 3 cenutries ahead of the mentality of most muslims right now). The quote was, "Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”
To show how upset they are, Moslems are demonstrating around the world, shooting Christians in the back in Somalia, and fire-bombing churches in the West Bank. By their actions they prove the man the Pope was quoting to be correct. The Pope's office has since issued a conciliatory statement, but you can never grovel enough to please Islamofacists- or the NY Times. The paper that once ran the headline "God is Dead" has decreed that the Pope owes Muslims a big apology. I haven't figured out exactly how I'd respond to them in such a situation- except that it would be a three word response and the first word would be "kiss".
May God bless Pope Benedict for telling the truth. And that is all he is doing, he is speaking and not calling for violence or force against any person. I am convinced of this: The more the forces of Hell object, whether they be secular strongholds like the NY Times or heretical death cults like most forms of Islam, the better God likes it.
