Pot, kettle, black

Australia’s leading Catholic spokesman should really keep his mouth shut:

The country’s most influential Catholic has offended Islamic leaders for the second time in a month by declaring Islam more warlike than Christianity.

Australia had not been much changed by the rising Islamic threat after September 11, 2001, the Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal George Pell, said. But this could change depending “on how many terrorist attacks” Islamic extremists could “bring off successfully”.

“The million-dollar question” was whether intolerance was a modern distortion of Islam or arose out of internal logic.

Perhaps Pell should speak to Muslims who actually know something about the religion.
