A man who, before he was Pope, was head of an organization that used to be the Spanish Inquisition has said that Islam is a violent religion. Muslim groups, outraged by the idea that they might be violent, have responded by burning churches and shooting people. So the Grand Inquisitor was forced to apologize.
So now, in his apology, he's managed to offend the Jews as well, who are planning to respond with a hard-hitting series of humorous essays in The New Yorker and episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Hilarious! I wonder how he's going to wriggle out of this one?
"We are all children of Abraham - Jews, Christians, Muslims, there is no enmity between the three great faiths and we all walk through this world together. Besides, everyone knows it was the Buddhists who stirred it up! Those meditating wankers, they're always behind it all!"
