Option A Or Option B?

Pope Should Immediately Convert To Islam

The elder son of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has called on Pope Benedict XVI to convert to Islam immediately, dismissing last week's apology from the pontiff for offending Muslims.

"If this person were really someone reasonable, he would not agree to remain at his post one minute, but would convert to Islam immediately. We say to the pope - whether you apologise or not is irrelevant, as apologies make no difference to us."

Gaddafi junior also hit out at "those Muslims who look for comfort in the words of a non-Muslim". He said Muslims "should not look for charity from the infidel... but should fight Islam's enemies who attack the faith and the Prophet Muhammad".

Gee, what a guy. Is he an example of those 'moderate moslems' I keep hearing about?


Roman Catholic, Orthodox Churches Pledge To Seek Unity

Top Roman Catholic and Orthodox clerics declared Monday the time has come to heal the rifts between the two churches and to seek unity. Sixty top Roman Catholic and Christian Orthodox clerics gathered for a week in Belgrade, Serbia, to renew theological dialogue this week, after talks broke off six years ago.

"It is time to recover the ancient unity,” he reportedly said, adding that, because of the new political reality in Europe, East and West must now also meet on the political level.

I posted on this very same topic just a few days ago. Re-read that last sentence in the news story. Like I've said in the past, one doesn't have to be a great theologian or diplomat to read between the lines there.

The Muslims would like nothing better than to see the Holy Father grovel. One things for sure, Cornwall won't be writing any books about Benedict being the "Mullah's Pope".
A timely Feast day is coming upon us, The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary - 7 October. I fully expect this blog to provide a history lesson regarding the significants of the glorious Battle of Lapanto and Our Lady of Victory.

Muslims have always taken advantage of the division in Christianity. I hope that the Bishops can find a way that we in the East can accept the Bishop of Rome as First Hierarch and not have the modernist, hippie, Christ in the Closet, touchdown Jesus crap. Unfortunately we have guys who are so conservative that they wouldn't change their underwear if they didn't have to, and only the Russians and Antiochians see the validity in in the old Latin Rite.

I saw the old Pope Gregory the Great divine liturgy on youtube narrated by then Msgr. Fulton Sheen, and how anyone could prefer the hippie guitar dancing shit over that is beyond me.

i'd like to see a post on other battles too where the muslims were driven out.

Ask in a polite fashion, and I'll consider it.
