Cripes... the irony of it: Nablus militant groups reacting with violence against a perceived implication that they are violent. None of the churches they attacked were even under the Pope. EDIT: Oh, nevermind, looks like they found the right ones this time. *sigh*
I also note that, wherever a news story permits commentary or a poll, most people (Americans, I guess) are supportive of the Pope's comments.
God, please bring us peace; forgive the Holy Father any carelessness; and forgive the people who attacked Christian churches.
EDIT: Found this interesting synopsis. Don't put away your critical-thinking caps, though. I just thought one line was amusing: "How dare anyone call us violent! We'll show you violence! How dare you insult the religion of Peace! For this you must die!"
