Pope to Egypt: Please protect your Christians
Egypt to Pope: Screw you! Of course in the fluid world of diplomatic unspeak, this may just be a little sabre rattling between friends. But it still amazes me that the first reaction to the Pope's pleas for Christian lives in Egypt was a giant middle finger. And we know the only problem in the world is radical terrorists who have nothing to do with Islam because Islam is like our brothers who just want peace! No doubt many are like our brothers and do want peace. But in between them and folks who fly jets into skyscrapers appears to be quite the potpourri of opinions and ideas about just what Islamic and Christian and Western relations should look like.
