He's also (allegedly) not keen on Islam [Who is?] having quoted a Byzantine Emperor who was on the pointy end of gentle Islam ... Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached. The Islamic retaliation that sentence proved times have not changed as "Cut the heads off the Infidels" and "Lets go to the UK and tell their kids to kill each other in an explosive suicidal manner" T-shirts and banners were displayed.
He might as well have said that Muslims weren't fit to lick dogshit of the soles of his jackboots for the furore that ensued. A right ol' tetchy bunch they are. Any excuse for a bit of effigy immolation and flag ignition.
Famous for the quotation 'Does the Pope shit in the woods?' or something like that. Also famous for Papal bath time products - the Pope-on-a-rope being the most successful. The Vatican gift shop does quite a line in themed gift ware: Turin Shroud duvet covers, Mary Magdalene tea towels and super absorbent stigmata pads to name but a few. But I digress.
