“Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”

— Pope Benedict XVI quoting Byzantine Emperor Manuel II Palaiologos.

Muslims have been at war with us infidels for 1400 years. Saying they are peaceful sounds nice and PC but it can get you killed in the real world

Why on earth would the Church desire “Interfaith Ties” with Islam? Do Michael and Gabriel hold regular conferences with Lucifer to work out how they can share religious space>

Regensburg: The lecture ... touches on the most poignant current problems the world witnesses, namely, the rise of terrorism and the confrontation between reason and will, between the Word and the Sword.

The lecture includes this quote from Byzantine emperor Manuel II Paleologus (an educated Persian on the subject of Christianity and Islam, and the truth of both) ...

"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached."

The World to the Islamic Envoy to Pope Francis: Declaring Islam ‘Peaceful’ won't make it so

The theme, concept and violence advocated in the name of jihad is anything BUT peaceful ...

The emperor goes on to explain in detail the reasons why spreading the faith through violence is something unreasonable. Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul.

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... To convince a reasonable soul, one does not need a strong arm, or weapons of any kind, or any other means of threatening a person with death....

The decisive statement in this argument against violent conversion is this: not to act in accordance with reason is contrary to God's nature. The editor, Theodore Khoury, observes: "For the emperor, as a Byzantine shaped by Greek philosophy, this statement is self-evident. But for Muslim teaching, God is absolutely transcendent. His will is not bound up with any of our categories, even that of rationality." Here Khoury quotes a work of the noted French Islamist R. Arnaldez, who points out that Ibn Hazn went so far as to state that God is not bound even by his own word, and that nothing would oblige him to reveal the truth to us. Were it God's will, we would even have to practice idolatry.

In other words, just like Satan did in the garden of Eden, Islam proclaims that God does not mean what He says.

Declaring Islam a peaceful religion would be a lie.Its something that this Pope should Not do.

The believers in that faith have to prove its peaceful.Not the Catholic Church.

seems to me Islam is to Peace what orgasm is to rape.If someone is choked to the point of fearing for their life unless they recite Islamic verse-such submission may bring a temporary peace. But when the bad guy comes back and does it again—and again and is given the same response— can’t call that a just peace. Any more than I could call an orgasm during a rape/sodomy good sex.
