There’s a bunch of great editorial cartoons over at MSNBC, illustrating the recent events surrounding the Pope’s speech in Germany and the reactions of Muslims around the world. I can’t reproduce the images here so I’ll just quote two of my favourites of the lot:
Scene: Pope apologising
Pope saying: In my recent speech, I quoted a 14th century emperor opining that Islam was violent and inhumane.
Pope saying: I’m sorry I said that.
Pope (in thought bubble): I should’ve said that it still *is* violent and inhumane.
Scene: A bunch of aliens hovering over the planet
Alien: As near as I can tell, they are fighting over which religion is more peaceful!
The rest of the collection are at Daryl Cagle’s Professional Cartoonists Index.
