Do I look racist to you?
I am very upset with this recent issue involving Pope Benedict. First of all, I am NOT racist. I am not a "Muslim Hater" (In fact I have a Muslim IM friend) and I respect all religions. But I do not respect immaturity. Pope Benedict when addressing a group of college students quoted from a Byzantine writer who was not pro-Muhammad and thought that Muhammad was or brought evil. Pope Benedict did not comment on Muhammad being evil, but was addressing a different point to the students. Namely that the Faith should not be spread through the sword. See Exactly what the Pope Said here. Read this article and you will find that some Muslims have gone crazy and even done violence to Christian Churches in response. Give me a break!!!! How many times have Muslims said anti-Christ or anti-Christian things? Do Christians get mad about it? Yes. Do they go around damaging Mosques? NO! True Christians don't go around responding in violence. We pray for those who persecute us and love those who hate us. It makes me mad to see this immaturity! I feel like the Pope is being black mailed. Pope Benedict has even given an apology for offending the Muslims in this way. To me, one of the biggest proofs the Catholic Church is true is that it did not spread through the sword but because it spoke for Itself. Jesus is the Way the TRUTH and the Life. I will pray for all of the Muslims throughout the world that they may come to know Jesus Christ and come to accept his Truth which brings true Peace to all!
