Cartoon Wars II, The Church of Rome Edition

At this point, I'm not going to add much to the discussion of the Muslim world's eruption over the recent speech by Pope Benedict XVI. If you want to know what I think, check my archives for my take on the Cartoon Wars. All of the same criticisms come into play. I tend not to comment much on things Catholic, but I will say this much: This may be a defining point for Pope Benedict XVI. He could very easily become a bull in this long war, playing a role like his predecessor played in the Cold War. Alternatively, he could slink back from the criticism, and with him Catholicism will retreat in the face of on rushing Islam.
