In what can only be described as shameless gall and an incredible provocation, over 100 Muslim demonstrators confronted worshipers exiting Sunday mass at the acclaimed Westminster Cathedral in downtown London, with shouts of “POPE BENEDICT GO TO HELL” and carrying signs that read, among other things: “ISLAM WILL CONQURE ROME”; “MAY ALLAH CURSE THE POPE,” and JESUS IS ALLAH'S SLAVE." That worshipers at England’s most important cathedral and symbol of faith would be confronted with such belligerency is truly a sign of how far things have deteriorated in the UK.
The Neocon Congratulates Joee Blogs - A Catholic Londoner for covering this development outside Westminster Abby in London.
- So let me get this one straight, the Catholic Pope makes a statement, Muslim rioters go on a rampage, burn churches and murder a Nun, and the Iranian press sees a Jewish-US conspiracy behind it all. Ooohkidoki!
- A Nun dedicated to nothing other than helping others and serving her religion as she felt compelled was slain in Somalia yesterday. Most likely because some fanatic didn't like what the Pope had to say. A precisous life snuffed out over nothing.
- Weird Quote of the Week: "Anyone who describes Islam as a religion as intolerant encourages violence" - Pakistan Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam.
- Predictable quote of the week: “We want to make it clear that if the pope does not appear on TV and apologize for his comments, we will blow up all of Gaza’s churches.” Palestinian Militant Sposksman.
