Comments on: Adding context to the Vatican- Muslim dialogue story Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: Vicki Mon, 03 Mar 2008 18:44:11 +0000 I wish the pope luck but honestly, dealing with the Muslims seems to be a lot like dealing with my mother-in-law: you can’t give in to the bluster and threats because if you give an inch she’ll take a mile; you CANNOT let her think she’s right when she’s wrong or you’ll regret it forever; if let her have her way you’ll soon be running around in a vail, barefoot, pregnant, and waiting on her hand and foot!

The Muslim’s got angry when the pope said something about them being irrational and violent, yet they have come out with the statement that “the very survival of the world itself” may depend upon these talks. Now I don’t know about you but the only thing my Sunday School class is planning is a bake sale and bazaar. We don’t go in for world domination or annhiliation! So if they are not irrational why would there be a question about the survival of our species? Isn’t wiping out your own kind an irrational act? What about violence?? Wouldn’t you have to employ violent means of some sort to achieve said irrational act???
