Pope Benedict's remarks on Islam

Last week, Pope Benedict XVI caused quite a ruckus when he quoted from a 16th century Christian who had said Islam may not exactly be the most peaceful religion in the world. Obviously, the Pope made a mistake. It’s not good to criticize Islam or to accuse Muslims of sometimes being violent. When you say that Islam is not peaceful, it gets some Muslims mad and makes them act violent and use violence to show that you were wrong to accuse Muslims of being violent.

The lesson, as always: Don't say the Islam is a violent religion, or some Muslims will get mad and use violence.
