Memo to Christians, Jews, the Vatican, and the West:

Stop fucking apologizing!

Anne Applebaum was more polite about it.

As was Glenn.

But I'll leave manners to those who possess them.

"If you accuse us of being violent, we will kill you." Say what? Piss off.

The papacy is definitely not what it used to be. Two or three hundred years ago, such actions would have resulted in a massed invasion of the area by every European nation.

I find it interesing that the pope makes a statement, and the muslims kill people that had nothing to do with it. You got a problem with the pope, take it up with him. Vatican City is pretty easy to find but you'll find torching it a little more difficult than the defenseless churches in the middle east. The Swiss Guards are pretty good shots even with those renaissance outfits on.

Let's get the chronology correct--
1) The Pope make a statement.
2) It is generally misreported-especially the headlines.
3) Muslims kill people having nothing to so with the statement, not unlike what they usually do on a daily basis.
4) The MSM blames the Pope calling him a murderer, and searches junkyards and morgues so that they can put together a photojournalism essay illustrating his crimes.
5) The Left seeks legislation to include Christianity in the definitions of Class A drugs under the Drug Act of 2005 in the UK. Real opiates are decriminalized. France can't find any Christians and decides to 'wait-and-see."

When someone says that to me I usually say "You first!" Or I could go the Chicago way and say "Give me the knife and I'll show you how a Chicagoan dies!" Then kill as many of them as I can before they do me the favor...

That's the Italian way, too. Don't ever forget that there are vialant Italians.

Ann Coulter has a good quote "Kick their ass, take their gas."

While the muslims may be developing nukes, they seem to forget who already has nukes. Thats right buddy "the infidels"

Those who are yelling "holy war" will be the first to say "HOLY SHIT" when the neuton bombs start to land.

Fabrizio Quattrocchi, the Italian hostage killed by kidnappers in Iraq in April 2004, tried to take off his hood and shouted 'Now I'll show you how an Italian dies..." Let's never forget.

It seems illogical to me how a religion can be spread by the sword. Only to people like Attila or Darrell would it seem plausible, because once threatened, they would easily convert.
Most respectable Christians or Jews or Hindus would not give up their religion because of the sword. And I suggest they never did. The people who have converted around me, have done so because of what they saw in Islam. The majority of muslims have been converted in times of peace. And because they liked the principles of equality and justice and liberty for ALL. Something that has been lacking in the new world for the last five-hundred years, until recently discovered by the civil rights movement. And lets not forget Malcolm X who saw these principles in action in Islam.

I did not say that Islam is spread by the sword. I said that anyone who reacts to merely hearing a quotation to the effect that someone once suggested Islam is spread by the sword, by KILLING INNOCENTS is not doing a very good job of persuading me that Islam isn't ever spread by the sword.

The way to persuade people that Islam isn't spread by the sword is to eschew swords when it comes to defending religious principles. But then, you knew that.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
