On September 12, 2006 Pope Benedict, while delivering a lecture at the University of Regensburg in Germany, quoted a manuscript from the 14th century Byzantine Emperor Manuel II Paleologus. The quote is as follows:
"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 words spread around the world like wildfire and some Muslims took great offense to this. Five days later, Sister Leonella Sgorbati - a nun who had devoted her life to helping the most empovirished regions in Africa - was gunned down outside a children's hospital in Mogadishu. Her last words were “Pardono; pardono" (“I forgive; I forgive.”).
I'm not going to explain or discuss what a cowardly act it is to shoot a female in the back - worse yet, a nun - by some gutless invertebrate. It's especially psychopathic, however, how an overzealous fanatic would cut down an individual whose main motivation is to help their people and their community. I do hope they find the suspected two men responsible for this and are made to face some kind of justice.
Yeah, right. Like that's ever going to happen.
