Pope compared to Hitler

Salih Kapusuz, a deputy leader of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s party, said Benedict’s remarks were either “the result of pitiful ignorance” about Islam and its prophet, or a deliberate distortion.

The comments raised tensions ahead of his planned visit to Turkey in November — his first pilgrimage to a Muslim country.

“He has a dark mentality that comes from the darkness of the Middle Ages. He is a poor thing that has not benefited from the spirit of reform in the Christian world,” Kapusuz was quoted as saying by the state-owned Anatolia news agency. “It looks like an effort to revive the mentality of the Crusades.”

“Benedict, the author of such unfortunate and insolent remarks, is going down in history for his words,” he said. “He is going down in history in the same category as leaders such as (Adolf) Hitler and (Benito) Mussolini.”

Excuse me, my niggah, but isn't that pope the wrong pope?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I don't know what Popey had to say, but the Turks are usually pretty moderate, so it must have been a good one. I did, however catch some film:

I believe that one is the Pope of North Carolina.

picky picky , has there ever been a right Pope , and they all look the same to me .
Sometimes they even bump a few off if they don't play the game like Boniface VIII and Benedict XI
untill you get a little turd like pontiff Clement V who would sell his Mother and burn his brother .

Of my God, the pope offended the muslims.

This is the greatest outrage since Salmon Rushdie wrote a fictional book which insulted the prophet ("peace be unto him").

I wonder if this means that the pope will be the subject of a fatwa and have to go into hiding, LOL!

This confuses me for yet another reason. Doesn't Amadijiridoo of Iran think that Hitler was a pretty good sort of fellow? So isn't this really a compliment?

I need a scorecard to keep up with what is an insult and what is a compliment.
