Of Infallibility and Islamic Hypocrisy

"Whoever insults the message of Mohammed is going to be subject to capital punishment."-- Anjem Choudary

If Infallibility means never having to say you’re sorry then being a religion of peace must mean never calling for the death of a leader of another religion.

There are approximately 2.1 billion Christians world-wide of which 1.1billion are Catholic. Pope Benedict XVI is the leader of those 1.1 billion Catholics.

There are approximately 1.3 billion Muslims in the world and a fraction of them are participating in the corrupting of a major world religion. Their religion, Islam.

In his sermon yesterday at the Papal summer residence of Castel Gandolfo outside Rome, Pope Benedict spoke amid strengthened security.

He said: "I am deeply sorry for the reactions in some countries to a few passages of my address at the University of Regensburg, which were considered offensive to the sensibility of Muslims.

"These in fact were a quotation from a medieval text, which do not in any way express my personal thought. I hope this serves to appease hearts and to clarify the true meaning of my address."

No other Pope is thought to have made such an apology. Yesterday's sermon by the Pope was the first time a pontiff has publicly said sorry.

Adherents of Islam are now defaming the Pope and threatening to murder the religious leader of the Catholics. They have burned him in effigy called him “…dog of Rome” and threatened violence against him, his followers and all of Christendom.

Why would Muslims threaten, defame and insult the living leader of the Catholic faith especially when they would not allow such regarding any of their leaders. Why? Because they claim that the Pope insulted their dead Prophet Muhammad.

They are saying in essence; you said we are violent; we’ll kill you for saying that we’re violent! (Hmmm?)

The threat of violence against Catholics and Christians was emphasized by the murder of an Italian nun in Somalia. Sister Leonella, 66, was shot as she walked from the children's hospital where she worked to her house in Mogadishu, a city recently taken over by an Islamic government.

If the Pope’s apology is not good enough for Muslims, some are saying that it is not, then that would be the second thing that Pope Benedict has done wrong in the span of a couple of days. So much for the doctrine of infallibility.

Should Muslims continue on this path of unwarranted violence, protest, murder, and terrorism it must be recognized that they are not a religion of peace, they will have to be rightly considered a religion that causes destruction of governments, countries and religions; their own religion and countries and also the destruction of Catholicism and the world.
