http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/5351988.stm Strait out I think it's ****ing ridiculous that the Pope has to go out and say he's sorry. The Pope should not apologize. I really don't think the Christian church should be subservient to Islam. Apologizing gives resolve to these people who go out on the streets and riot. These muslims are overly aggressive and are being rewarded when huge figureheads like the Pope roll over on their backs and apologize. Since when does the Pope need to apologize for a comment that really was not offensive. It wasn't intended to be offensive. These people rioting on the streets obviously misinterpreted what the Pope meant. The Pope owes no apology. It's their fault they think the Pope was being offensive. When in actuality he was not. But rather standing his ground, or communicating to people that this was all a misunderstanding, he backs down and says he's sorry. Pathetic the way I see it. If someone makes a comment that "offends" muslims, and a few of them go blow up a couple buildings, somehow it's the person who made the "offensive" comments is at fault. Some people are too ***** to go out and speak their mind for fear of offending someone. These thugs who go out and riot in the streets are starting to dictate what people say, and do. I for one am getting very annoyed. Just take these Danish cartoons for instance. Heaven forbid they were only making a couple jokes about Islam. Something Iran does with Jews on a daily basis. Suddenly the cartoonist's lives are at risk. It's not these people making threats who are to blame, it's the cartoonists. They where the ones who made fun of "holly" allah and now deserve to die. What did the Danish newspaper do? They gave into the demands, rolled over on their backs, and played dead. Are these muslims so insecure about their religion? Are they that insecure about their beliefs? Can they not take a joke? Aparently not. If you were to go out and piss on a statue of jebus, do you think thousands of Christians would go out and riot on the streets? Make threats upon your life? I don't think so. The world is going soft on these militant, overly aggressive muslims, and this is what they want. Stand up for yourself and tell these *******s to shut the **** up. end rant Yeah, go ahead and flame me for speaking my mind, I'm listening.
