Iran's Khatami: Pope Comments Still Hurt

VATICAN CITY (AP) - Former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami met Friday with Pope Benedict XVI for talks the Vatican hoped would help heal tensions left from the pontiff's remarks on Islam and violence, but the Iranian said the wounds were still very deep. Khatami, a reformist in power from 1997 to 2005, had been scheduled to meet with Benedict in October but the meeting was canceled. No reason was given, but it was just weeks after Benedict's speech in Germany about Islam touched off protests across the Muslim world. On Friday, the two men spoke about the importance of "a serene dialogue between cultures intended to overcome the grave tensions that mark our times," the Vatican said in a statement after their 30-minute meeting.

Let's keep the dialogue serene please. Otherwise the situation could get out of hand.

Did the Pope inform the bastard of the many “hurts” still festering over DEEDS not words, perpetrated by the Islamists”.

Humoring Islamist is not the path to peace.

Pope Benedict should have looked Khatami right in the eye and said "God's Word states that every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess, that Jesus Christ is LORD!, and that means you, and every single one of your fellow Muslims."

Now THAT would have been a true 'Kodak moment', eh?

I know this is about Pope Benedict’s statement, but I want to quote another Pope’s statement which I just love:

“I come as one who wishes you to fulfill completely your noble destiny of service to the world.”

Pope John Paul (on his last visit to America)

CAMP TAJI — Coalition forces thwarted an al-Qaeda plot to destroy the Huda Girls’ School in Tarmiyah, said U.S. military officials Thursday.

As reconstruction efforts for school systems in Iraq continued, al-Qaeda extremists targeted the Huda Girls’ School in Tarmiyah twice in the past month using improvised explosive devices and building explosives into the school house.

“[It was a] sophisticated and premeditated attempt to inflict massive casualties on our most innocent victims,” said U.S. Army Maj. Gen. William B. Caldwell IV, the Multi-National Force-Iraq spokesman.

Recently, the al-Qaeda plan to destroy the school was disrupted when Soldiers of 2nd “Stallion” Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team discovered a detonating wire across the street from the school leading to five artillery shells, two large explosive-filled propane tanks and numerous projectiles embedded in and around the construction of the school house.

I suppose you note the obvious problem or do you just like what Romans says as opposed to what Philipians says?

We'll settle this right here and now, by agreeing to wait and see how King Jesus handles it when He returns.

I fully expect that to happen in my lifetime.

See ya there!
