Where is the intolerance in the statement that "Muslims worship a
god and behave differently as a consequence." This seems self evident. I
don't see any mention of revoking their right to exist or worship. Does
anyone dispute the accuracy of the statement that atheists worship a
different God and behave differently as a result? Also, it seems odd
on a local protestant to answer for statements made by the Pope. Sort of
like me calling on Ralph to answer for remarks made by Leo Tolstoy,

People like Iverson and his employers seem to imagine themselves to
be the only true Christians, and, consequently, believers in the only
true god. But the Pope claims that Muslims and Christians worship the
same God. Does this mean that the Pope, too, doesn't believe in the
only true god?
For gc to claim that atheists worship any god at all is an oxymoron.
And if he would please read Pastor Roger Lynn's letter again, he will
see that Lynn didn't mention the Pope at all. I see no reason why I
shouldn't comment on Leo Tolstoy or any other famous writer. After

the statue of Leo Tolstoy in the Doukhobor Village Museum last time I
visited Castlegar BC. Blessed are the peacemakers.
