Now The Pope Has Done It

It didn't take very long for the Muslim outrage to begin.

Last Saturday, Pope Benedict XVI baptized a non-practicing Muslim in a traditional Easter eve ceremony.

Aref Ali Nayed, the head of Jordan's Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre, called the baptism of journalist Magdi Allam a deliberate and provocative act.

The Vatican has not yet commented, but its official newspaper said the gesture aimed to promote religious freedom.

The Pope traditionally baptises adult converts to Catholicism on Easter eve.

Mr Allam's invitation to the ceremony, which took place in St Peter's Basilica, was however kept secret by the Vatican, until just before the Easter vigil mass.
No other faith has the paranoia and control-freakish tendencies associated with it that Islam does.

Magdi Allam, watch your back!
