The Popenator

Pope Benedict XVI made a couple of passing remarks towards Islam and on cue the Muslim community is acting like he drew a cartoon picture of Mohammad. Without a doubt the biggest knee jerk reaction was from the Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokeswomen, Tasnim Aslam:
"Anyone who describes Islam as a religion as intolerant encourages violence," Tasnim Aslam said.
Just so you understand Aslam's statement: Islam is tolerant, so tolerant in fact that they are incited to violence by mere words in a speech. Flush a Koran down a toilet and people die. Draw a picture of Mohammad and people die.

Yes, death and violence truly define the word tolerance. And as everyone knows, Islam is all about tolerance...well at least the death and violence part.
