Popes Non Apology Pope Stopped Short

The Pope’s non-Apology

The Pope stopped short of an apology on Saturday. He did say he was sorry that Muslims took offense to his quotation of a medieval authority who alleged that the Prophet Muhammad had brought only evil.

Morocco withdrew its ambassador to the Vatican as a result of the speech. The Iraqi government, with its half a million strong Chaldean population, uniate Catholics, asked for clarifications.

The pope will say something on the issue later today. Will blog it.
