From Rob's Blog

In remarks earlier this week, Pope Benedict, in remarks on Islam and terrorism, cited an obscure Middle Ages text of a conversation between an earlier Pope and a Muslim Emissary, which characterized Islam as inherently prone to use violence to spread the faith, rather than peace, piety, and good works.

In response to the Pope's remarks, the muslim world rioted in protest, paroxysms of violence, including the firebombing of two churches in the West Bank today, proved both that the Pope was right, and Islam hasn't changed significantly since the Middle Ages.

James Waterton, over at Samizdata, commented, "Isn't it hilarious? Muslims are outraged that the Pope would link Islam with violence, and react - with violence. Magnificent."

Are you replying to your own posts now?

I assume this means when I post something pointing out the hilarious idiocy of the Evangelicals you'll post that too? ;-)
