All the hubub over the Pope's comments regarding Mohammed and Islam is just the usual mainstream leftist media tempest in a teapot. And, as usual, they have missed the real story. Instead, they have chosen to accuse the usual suspects. This time, it's Catholics (and all Christians by proxy).
CNN obtained the transcripts of the Holy Father's lecture, given at the University of Regensburg, in Germany.

This quote, by the Byzantine Emperor, shows the fallacy of the Islamo-Fascist's argument: "God is not pleased by blood, and not acting reasonably is contrary to God's nature. Faith is born of the soul, not the body. Whoever would lead someone to faith needs the ability to speak well and to reason properly, without violence and threats....
