Hold On Little Doggies!!

Pope sorry for remarks

This al-Reuters headline is a little misleading. Lemme guess why…

Pope Benedict is sorry Muslims were offended by a speech on Islam that provoked fury around the world and led to calls for the leader of the Catholic church to apologize, an aide said on Saturday.
The Holy Father is very sorry that some passages of his speech may have sounded offensive to the sensibilities of Muslim believers,” said Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone in a statement.

He’s just sorry they don’t have a clue and not sorry for what he said. The New York Times could use a little schooling in comprehension.

The New York Times said in an editorial the Pope must issue a “deep and persuasive” apology for quotes used in his speech.
The world listens carefully* to the words of any pope. And it is tragic and dangerous when one sows pain, either deliberately or carelessly,” it said.

* One would guess ‘not’ at the Times.
The German chancellor gets it.

But Chancellor Angela Merkel and other German politicians defended his comments, saying he had been misunderstood.
“It was an invitation to dialogue between religions,” she told the mass-circulation Bild newspaper in an interview.
