To Visit
Poland Trip

Pope Benedict is the man:

WARSAW (AFP) - Pope Benedict XVI personally asked that he be allowed to pray at the former Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau when he visits his predecessor's Polish homeland in May, a Church official said.

By the way, yes, I criticized the Pope below, for saying that Islam cannot "be brought into the modern world," (if, indeed, he did actually say that), but, while my criticism was rather harsh, let me be clear, that it does not mean that I don't like the Pope.

All human beings have failings. If, at this point, the Pope can not see how we are going to get ourselves out of the mess we're in, then, he is just like 99.9% of all humanity.

As Atlas points out, the Pope also condemns terrorism, demands religious freedom, and makes it known that terrorism is what provokes the "Clash of Civilizations."
