We are not evil, and we will burn down your church to prove it

I’m a big fan of The Daily WTF, even if I can’t explain its name in mixed company. But today the real world has outdone anything that site ever posted.

You see, the Pope gave a speech that quoted a 14th century Byzantine emperor who said that Mohammed’s teachings were “evil and inuhuman”. Naturally, some people took offense. No one likes to have their faith criticized, and a few people decided to prove that emperor wrong. To demonstrate their lack of evil, they burned and shot up a few churches.

I totally agree! Outraged at someone quoting a 600 year old man about a history of violence so you respond violently… Don’t forget they shot an old nun … proving the Pope wrong again. ?
