Kissing the Koran
#75
Kissing the Koran means more than casual niceness to Islam. It means kow-towing to Islam, the culture, the religion, and its leaders. I've seen some blog chat by devout Muslims who said they interpreted JP II's actions in that way, as a sign that he is bowing to the primacy of Mohammed and his religion as truth. Even though JP II didn't intend his act to be construed that way, it's exactly how it was interpreted around the world. Let's put the shoe on the other foot:  has anyone seen any Islamic leader kissing the Catholic Bible in all of history? On the contrary, we have news footage of burning bibles and Christians in ditches. You'll never see Islam kiss the Bible out of respect...because they don't respect us. What JP II did was inadvertently tell everyone that Christ isn't divine, and that the pope isn't the vicar of Christ on earth, endowed with a special gift and primacy directly from God to Peter that supersedes all religions. Quite the opposite. I love JP II--don't misunderstand me, but this was a mistake.
