Out And About
Taking his gloves off once again to confront Islam's nasty illiberalism, Pope Benedict XVI called Muslims to task (h/t Weasel Zippers):
Yesterday, near Rome, the 80-year-old pontiff made a speech in "defence of religious liberty", which, he said "is a fundamental, irrepressible, inalienable and inviolable right".
In a clear reference to Islam, he said: "The exercise of this freedom also includes the right to change religion, which should be guaranteed not only legally, but also in daily practice."
Addressing the problem of Islamic extremism, he added: "Terrorism is a serious problem whose perpetrators often claim to act in God's name and harbour an inexcusable contempt for human life."
Roger Fraley runs the numbers and asks, "My only question is how, given these frightening histories, can any thinking person be on the left?"
