    1. To Barry John and all those who do not agree,
      Yes, it made a difference to the lives of twelve Muslim immigrants who most likely had little hope left in them. The Pope ‘bashed’ a man too weak and unwilling to accept others who did not have his skin colour. I understand and accept that there are many, many moments in life where a weapon is needed but I do not believe our Pope was ‘slandering’ those who carry a weapon for the defensive reasons (e.g young woman or man carrying a sting gun for protection while in an untrustworthy part of a city).
      Your sarcasm was unnecessary and childish. You did not have to make such a disrespectful remark when you are fully aware there would be others who would take that as offensive.
      A life is a life regardless of religion. The Gosple and the disciples do not restrict us from helping our cousins who follow a different path to God.
      To the children and future descendants of the twelve Muslims, this was very much a ‘progressive’ and life changing moment. Every person we meet will affect our lives.
