FROM YAHOO! NEWS: Pope sorry for reaction to his remarks:

By PIER PAOLO CITO, Associated Press Writer 2 hours, 9 minutes ago

Pope Benedict XVI said Sunday that he was "deeply sorry" about the angry reaction to his recent remarks about Islam, which he said came from a text that did not reflect his personal opinion.


Pope Maledict the First says that he is "deeply sorry" about the reaction, not for having made the statement.

And what in heck does he mean when he says that the text "did not reflect his personal opinion"? Opinions are like a**holes; everybody's got one - alas, even the Pope - but as the leader of the world's one billion plus Roman Catholics, his "personal opinion" is irrelevant when he speaks ex cathedra.

Like the makers Of Hebrew National hot dogs, The Pope has to answer to a higher authority.
