The Pope as a Snake: Where are the Catholic Riots?

From The Telegraph

Already, the 1981 would-be assassin of Pope John Paul II, Mehmet Ali Agca — back in prison after being briefly released this year — has warned the pontiff that someone will try to kill him. The country's bestselling novel, Plot Against the Pope, shows Benedict on the cover, targeted by a bearded sniper in front of a burning cross.

At the beginning of this month, a man was arrested outside the Italian consulate in Istanbul for firing a gun to protest against the Pope

Ali Bardakoglu, the head of Turkey's state-run religious affairs directorate, told fanatics that the Pope must "experience that Islam is a religion of peace"

    Michaelangelo painted the pope of his time on the sistine chaple wall, in hell with donkey ears. I always thought that was hilarious.
    myself..... not a big fan of catholics (as an organisation)
    this is just me thinking out loud.
    In art I always try to see the artists interprutation. These men are speaking with forked tounges, it's symbolic for saying one thing but meaning another through decitful talks.
    Why are they facing each other? Who are they deciving?
    anyway back on topic. Anything anyone does in an attempt to be diplomatic is starting to matter less and less. I again blame the media. Much has happened between the church and the true muslim clergy since the pope made that speech. None of it was reported.
    We as a society have become so stupid. I half expect riots sooner or later, cause all this will eventually become a war of Gods ........ not something to look forward to.

    moonbat philosophy? what the hell does that mean?
    The point of the article was that religion is fucked up, especially when mixed with politics.
    I am getting so sick of people telling everyone what God thinks and says.
    It's all just someones opinion.... my opinion is they are all stupid.
