I also like what Andy of Taking Aim wrote about the Pope:
The Pope, apparently, should not be allowed to say that Catholicism is superior to other religions:
Yahya Pallavicini, vice-president of one of Italy’s main Islamic organisations, the Islamic Religious Community […] expressed a fear that the Pope’s comments demonstrated a “Christian Catholic exclusivism” - a belief that Catholicism was superior to other religions.
In the words of Rebecca, who sent me the link - “He’s the POPE for gods sake - if he can’t think Catholicism is a superior religion, then the world has truly gone nuts”.
Somewhat belatedly, L'Shana Tova and Ramadan Mubarak to all of you, my dear readers!
Also, the second anniversary of the "egg incident" was mentioned in the news here today, somewhat belatedly, too. Turns out the guy who threw that egg at Yanukovych was the son of a university dean from Ivano-Frankivsk - economics department, I guess, but I may be wrong. The poor father had a heart attack after his son's adventure.
(Pora has the video of the "egg incident" - here.)
