It was a symbolic move to show muslim converts all over the world that we support them. The media did make an unreasonable fuss, potraying the event as some plot to subvert Islam( a little paranoid if you ask me). If the media wants something to write about, focus on the muslim converts to Christianity that are being harrassed, demonized by muslims and even killed. Where is the media outrage when it comes to these horrible crimes?

Since I’m the one for whom you mentioned, at the very end of your article, the word “naive”, should I not mention that, instead, it would be naive to hold that the Pope was not thinking about the priests say, in Turkey and elsewhere, who are killed or injured should they participate in providing a quiet baptism?

This baptism helps to protect those who otherwise die. If it were known that the Pope backed down under pressure from whatever source, well, what a slaughter there would be!

I have a much fuller response to this, your otherwise excellent article, here: http://renzodilorenzo.wordpress.com/2008  /04/01/reuters-responds-to-my-trilogy-b log-post-about-the-pope%e2%80%99s-baptis ing-the-anti-islamic-muslim-magdi-cristi ano-allam-part-ii/. Cheers!

The complaints of Muslims about this former Muslim’s baptism is really irrelevant. Preach the Gospel; it’s everone’s right to hear and believe.
