    Pope steps in dodo

    Seems the Pope has caused outrage in the Islamic community by his quoting from an old obscure book:

    The pope quoted from a book recounting a conversation between 14th-century Byzantine Christian Emperor Manuel Paleologos II and a Persian scholar on the truths of Christianity and Islam.

    “The emperor comes to speak about the issue of jihad, holy war,” Benedict said. “He said, I quote, ’Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”’

    good question, we wouldn't want the press to start setting any bad precedents by actually quoting something in context..I imagine a fuller text of his remarks will eventually come out now that the headline has been grabbed..

    Well its true though-isn't it? These types of headlines are designed for maximum impact and sales/subscriptions etc...

    How many hits would you get on the top news websites in the US with:

    "Pope totally agrees with Islamic leaders and everyone had a cup of tea"....
