Did the Pope ever get to read the controversial religious writings? I'm and ex-Catholic but I'm still appalled by his move!!
As most of you here know that I'm an Atheist (ex-Catholic too) because I remember as a kid when in I lived Lebanon even then I saw nothing but hatred from Muslims far more than Catholics -on me and my sister in school..... whereas it was a Catholic school there were Muslims kids harassing us all the time, calling us dirty names and that snakes with many heads will eat us up because we don't believe in Allah! And the teachers did nothing to stop it, so at 18-years old I decided not to be religious anymore, it's useless, it's all filled with hatred!!
Another thought, maybe does the pope think that by doing this warmongering Muslims will because more tolerable to non-Muslims?
If so far by now people don't know what's up in the Middle East and in Africa they most probably are among those that are living under a rock! Just look around how much worse the world has become after the Arab Spring and the calling of "democracy" which does not exist in these part world and never will because of their religion!

Pope Francis stood for two minutes of silent prayer facing east in one of Turkey's most important mosques, a powerful vision of Christian-Muslim understanding at a time when neighboring countries are experiencing violent Islamic assault on Christians and religious minorities.
His head bowed, eyes closed and hands clasped in front of him, Francis prayed alongside the Grand Mufti of Istanbul, Rahmi Yaran, in the 17th-century Sultan Ahmet mosque, shifting gears to religious concerns on the second day of his three-day visit to Turkey. (AP)
