I find Mr Rapoport's article partial and erroneous. The Pope himself has clearly stated that the quoting extracted in his speech last tuesday was simply an example. It is very spiteful of Mr Rapoport to say that this quote is the Pope's opinion. I think that there's not a single institution with such an interest in peace and interreligious understanding as the Catholic Church. There's much interest in the media in eroding the Pope's image as it's difficult to understand how a man nearly 80 can have the support of so many young people and also the true respect of people of all races, countries and religions. The Pope has left very clear that it was just an example and not a personal opinion. It is discouraging the attitude of the radical Muslim minority supported by many politicians, responding with violence and hate to reasonable explanations. A nun has been killed in Somalia. Is that a sign of tolerance and religious understanding?
