As I'm sure most of you know by now, last week the Pope quoted a medieval text which called Islam a violent religion and Mohammed, evil and inhuman.
After Muslims worldwide protested (not just the "radicals"), started torching Churches and murdered a nun in response to this undisputed historical fact, the Pope said the words he quoted did not reflect his personal opinion.
Torching churches, murdering nuns, forcing journalist to convert to Islam by gunpoint...nah...no violence or evil in that religion now whatsoever. It was only a medieval quote that doesn't reflect the modern times at all. Ignorance must be truly bliss.
