    Are all Muslims offended when Muslim extremists are criticized?

    Are all Christians offended when Christian extremists are criticized?

    Why would all Atheists be offended when extremist Atheists are criticized?

    Here is what the Pope really said:

    Even in our own lifetime, we can recall how Britain and her leaders stood against a Nazi tyranny that wished to eradicate God from society and denied our common humanity to many, especially the Jews, who were thought unfit to live. I also recall the regime’s attitude to Christian pastors and religious who spoke the truth in love, opposed the Nazis and paid for that opposition with their lives.

    As we reflect on the sobering lessons of the atheist extremism of the twentieth century, let us never forget how the exclusion of God, religion and virtue from public life leads ultimately to a truncated vision of man and of society and thus to a “reductive vision of the person and his destiny.”

    Here is the entire address: http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/spe...

    The Pope had just gone on to the next logical step after the Pagan Nazis. "The sobering lessons of the atheist extremism of the twentieth century" were from Atheistic Communism which killed many more people than the Nazis ever did.

    The Pope was not comparing Atheist extremists to the Nazis, he was comparing them to the Atheistic Soviet Union and other communists.

    With love in Christ.

    The pope cited Hitler today, asking everyone to "reflect on the sobering lessons of atheist extremism of the 20th century." Immediately, the British Humanist Association got its back up, accusing the pope of "a terrible libel against those who do not believe in God."

    The pope did not go far enough. Radical atheists like the British Humanist Association should apologize for Hitler. But they should not stop there. They also need to issue an apology for the 67 million innocent men, women and children murdered under Stalin, and the 77 million innocent Chinese killed by Mao. Hitler, Stalin and Mao were all driven by a radical atheism, a militant and fundamentally dogmatic brand of secular extremism. It was this anti-religious impulse that allowed them to become mass murderers. By contrast, a grand total of 1,394 were killed during the 250 years of the Inquisition, most all of whom were murdered by secular authorities.

    Why should atheists today apologize for the crimes of others? At one level, it makes no sense: apologies should only be given by the guilty. But on the other hand, since the fanatically anti-Catholic secularists in Britain, and elsewhere, demand that the pope—who is entirely innocent of any misconduct—apologize for the sins of others, let the atheists take some of their own medicine and start apologizing for all the crimes committed in their name. It might prove alembic. (refining)

    Atheists will be responsible for Aids, the plague and the crusades tomorrow.

    Oh he'll wait till he goes to another "3rd world country" to insult them. All he's doing is setting Catholics apart... and most likely losing even more followers because of it.

    I´m still gobsmacked that he called The UK a Third World country. Tough act to follow.

    Probably the other people who have been slagging him off for months now.

    He might go after Jewish people next. Considering his last comment that would be ironic.

    He'll probably say children are themselves to blame for getting molested by being too innocent and friendly to strangers.
