In Sydney, Cardinal George Pell said the reaction of Muslims to the Pope's speech showed the link in Islam between religion and violence. "The violent reactions in many parts of the Islamic world justified one of Pope Benedict's main fears," he said. "They showed the link for many Islamists between religion and violence, their refusal to respond to criticism with rational arguments, but only with demonstrations, threats and actual violence.
"Our major priority must be to maintain peace and harmony within the Australian community, but no lasting achievements can be grounded in fantasies and evasions."
The Cardinal has drawn fire from the Islamomaniacs himself because he has pointed out that Muslims will not debate openly the errors of facts, inconsistencies, anachronisms and other defects found within the Koran by scholars. He has also pointed out that the Koran is riddled with "invocations to violence".
Preach it brother!
