Blaming Violence on The Pope

Madeline Bunting, the infamous mainstream moonbat who often does opinion pieces for the Guardian has a piece up at Comment is Free, on how due to the foolish Pope, an elderly Catholic nun was shot dead.

a more disturbing possibility: namely, that the Catholic church could be failing - yet again - to deal with the challenge of modernity. In the 19th and 20th centuries, it struggled to adapt to an increasingly educated and questioning faithful, now in the 21st century, it's in danger of failing the great challenge of how we forge new ways of accommodating difference in a crowded, mobile world. The Catholic church has to make a dramatic break with its triumphalist, bigoted past if it is to contribute in any constructive way to chart this new course.

Yes you heard that right, the Catholic church is failing to deal with modernity.

    The Catholic Church was dealing with its "bigoted pasted". Immediately before the comments in question, the pope was basically saying, the comments were from the biggotted past and would not be acceptable today.

    However the Muslim fanatics ingored the disclaimer and used statement afterwards to incite violence.

    read some of the comments at the end of the piece, seems even her readers think she's got the wrong end of the stick.

    allthough have to say the catholic faith is a backward religion, its veiws on contraception, for example, are ridiculous

    Agree with Anonymous -- the pope's got blood on his hands each time a Catholic catches HIV.

    That said, the Islamists must have thought to themselves "What better way to show that Islam is not a violent religion than to protest violently and kill a nun?"... They weren't joking, sadly.

    According to this (Leftist), its not the Pope, but our hypocrisy that drives them to hate us:

    Through academic rhetorics and overanalyzing, things have completely lost root in reality. At one point in the future, when we get this at a distance, we'll be able to see it all in perspective. The absurdity of it.

    Just like we ask ourself today - how could WW2 happen.

    We need to find the force of reason. (Oriana Fallaci)
