Pope Speaks; Muslims Slaughter

Since the Pope resides in palatial splendor in the Vatican, it would be difficult for Somalis to carry out the fatwa issued to "hunt down and kill" him. So the brave Defenders of Allah settle for a 73 year old nun/humanitarian whom they ambushed and shot in the back (and stomach and chest just to be on the safe side). Surely their courage knows no limits.

I watched CNN try to spin the Muslim reaction to the Pope's speech. I guess it's true that if he'd just kept his mouth shut like a good little dhimmi, the Muslims hordes wouldn't be doing what they do best. But at some point, someone must ask the theological questions. We are dealing with a religion afterall, in spite of CAIR's (Council on American-Islamic Relations) demand that Islam and terrorism not be mentioned in the same sentence. I mean, I'd love to comply, but terrorists have this ugly little habit of visiting mosques, reading the Koran, and screaming "Allah Akbar" before they hack the heads off schoolgirls, murder babies in Beslan, and hijack planes and fly them into buildings full of unarmed civilians.

CAIR has it's own dirty little secrets as well.

The point of the Pope's speech was to ask whether a rational God would demand violence in His name. Being a raging academic, he delved into the history books for quotes and came up with quote from a 14th century Byzantine Emperor who was under attack from the Religion of Peace. It wasn't Pope Benedict's quote (not that it matters), but naturally the frothing hordes wish to slaughter anyone who dares to suggest that Islam might not be peaceful and tolerant. I mean it's only common sense.

If someone were to call me violent and evil and imply that my religion is spread by the sword, my immediate instinct would be to slit their throat and slaughter their children. And their animals. No question. People just need to respect the fact that I'm a murderous avenger of my religion and I should not have to peacefully tolerate anyone who calls my God evil and imply that he demands satisfaction through violence. I will behead them and prove them wrong.

All sarcasm aside, what really gets to me is the refusal to hold radical Muslims to the same standards as the rest of the world. I can just hear the internal dialogue of the news reporters: "Well, they live in squalor and they don't know any better. We should make allowances since we are so rich."

I agree with the fact that they are bestial primates but just because they still wipe their asses with their hands and turn to camels for love, doesn't mean they can't be held accountable for their actions. The last thing they need is to have their temper tantrums justified.

***CORRECTION*** The Catholic nun, Sister Leonella Sgorbati, slaughtered by the Peaceful Defenders of Allah was 65, not 73.
