the pope and islam

I think the Pope is a moron for saying the things he did and to prove I mean it here's an article by Christopher Hitchens saying just that. I find it a bit sureal reading sophisticated (I'll take the Economist's word on that) Catholic stuff. There is so much waffling about reason, but it's different to anything I've ever read before. Obviously all those other book just are not reasonable.

However stupid he was though I find this type of response way worse. My heart sinks even though it's so predictable:
"You're saying that the language itself is an act of violence?" "Of course it is," Nasr replied. Discussing the violent reaction to the Pope?s quotation, he declared, "He who uses the sword shall perish by the sword."
