Sorry Pope Benedict

Benedict XVI

Some years ago in 2006 when Pope Benedict gave a lecture on Faith and Reason at Regensburg, his words were quoted out of context and twisted. As such, many in the world attacked him when, in truth, he was trying to enter into an academic dialogue to help Christians and Muslims understand each other, and to learn together something of the nature of God. This interesting article offers a reflection on those words in the light of modern events, and how perhaps the world should have listened more.
