I was going to start taking odds that the suspects were Muslim but we all knew the answer so it would have been a waste of time.

I got the FoxNews Breaking email and then checked FR.

Nothing...

So that’s when I started cranking out the post and even checked again before I hit the post button but we must have it it within 3 seconds of each other. ;)

I’ve noticed fewer threads and comments lately. Not sure what that means or if FReepers are just busy doing other things.

The article states that they weren’t UK citizens, and ranged in age from 20 - 55.

Something tells me this Pope will not die a ‘natural death’.

One of the religion of peace adherers will pull a Gavrilo Princip, and all hell will break loose.

Always please use proper headlines and links. It is far better to have a real thread in Breaking News, as opposed to one that amounts to a Tweet.

According to British newspapers, there are no “Arabs” in Great Britain, only “Asians.” Odds are good that the next report will describe the subjects as “five Asians.” So I’m thinking that it is likely that the five men are a Buddhist, a Hindu, a Sikh, a Shintoist and a Confucian.

Agreed - And thus I “copied and pasted” the exact headline words at MSNBC website (at least what were there at that moment???)

Just FYI

MSNBC has Just re-edited the title at link to read:

“Reports: 5 arrested over plot targeting pope”

And they removed from the article the report of “arab men”...?

They were all foreign-born Algerians, apparently, although the plot itself is thought to have orginated in the UK.

For some reason Christians of various denominations have always pointed fingers at each other as being the “Whore of Babylon”. Sorry to differ, but for the last 15 years of dealing with Islamofascism, I would have to say that we are staring the Whore right in the eye. This type of incident confirms my beliefs.

We need to stop calling them radical and start calling them 'Devout Muslims'.

Absolutely correct.

When you look at the big picture, it's more a difference of ceremony than anything else. Compare the different branches of Christianity with each other and then with muslims or atheists. See how great that contrast is.

A little off-topic question. Why isn’t “pope” capitalized? Seems to me it should.

I wonder if there will be as much world outrage over muslims trying to kill the worlds most prominent christian religious leader as there was over one american contemplating burning the koran?

NAH!

I am guessing that VRWCTexan simply copied and pasted the headline text from MSNBC. They (MSNBC) probably did not capitalize “Pope” according to some new left-wing, PC editorial rules.
