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.
