Well Il Papa has caused some stir over the last three days after his address to the University of Regensburg on Tuesday (Wednesday Australia time). His address is titled Faith, Reason and the University Memories and Reflections and you can read it for yourself here.

The SMH has this report about the response of Maylasia and there have been riots in other Muslim countries around the globe. The American Papist has a good round-up and will no doubt keep everyone posted with updates.

The Pope has been likened to Hitler and Mussolini by the Turks but the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, has just come out in his defence.

Maybe I shouldn't assume a conspiracy- but I don't think that the Pope didn't know that his comments wouldn't be seen as outrageous. The Pope knows that whenever he gives a speech it is to the world. Very interesting.

Deus Lo Vult!
