    C'mon folks! what is so new about what Pope Benedict said? It is what most of us believe but are afraid to speak out for fear of being labeled "conservative freaks". Islam has always been a violent religion. Now not to let Christianity slide, It also engaged in some serious bloodletting. But in my novice and humble opinion, I think the main difference between the two religion is that one is pegged on forgiveness while the other onretribution. Christianity and especially the Catholic Church has a pretty tainted track record in this world. But to dismiss The Pope and/or his comments based on the church's history is wrong. He was gutsy enough to call a spade a spade. And believe-you-me, muslims would find any reason to take to the streets. It's like darn-if-you-do, darn-if-you-dont kaffir! I think it is an opportune time that moderate muslims speak out against extremists who twist the supposedly harmonious religion into a spiteful terror-embracing cult.
