Dopey Pope

From various Guardian articles:

The Pope's speech in Germany last week, in which he quoted a medieval ruler who said Muhammad's innovations were "evil and inhuman", has led to widespread condemnation in the Muslim world.

The pontiff appeared to risk causing fresh controversy during his speech yesterday when he cited a passage from St Paul that risked being interpreted as hostile - not by Muslims, but by Jews. It described the crucifixion of Jesus as a "scandal for the Jews".

Jewish representatives yesterday expressed surprise at the latest incursion into sensitive territory.


I wonder how exactly they expressed their surprise. What the hell are you talking about springs to mind.
