Link: WorldNetDaily: Pope won’t call Islam religion of peace.

Pope Benedict XVI yesterday refused to declare Islam "a religion of peace." Asked by reporters whether Islam could be considered a religion of peace shortly before entering a meeting with priests and deacons of Valle d’Aosta in northwest Italy where he is spending a brief holiday, the pontiff refused to reply positively.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.

    I don’t know how anyone can say a religion that openly kills whomever like they “just because” is a religion of peace.

    Not only does he show some spine, but he is able to look at something and just say what he sees…Good for him!
    He’s already taken some heat for saying what he thinks about the Harry Potter books.
    On an unrelated note, the Pope was mentioned in the Strib today, in a story about the “unofficially ordained” woman deacon (a St. Thomas alumna, alas) Before he became Pope, Cardinal Ratzinger signed off on a statement against the ordination of women.
