..so according to the pope's worldview, Islam is responsible for people going to hell, and he respects it? Seems rather odd to me.In a statement read out by a senior Vatican official, the Pope said he respected Islam and hoped Muslims would understand the true sense of his words.
Does seem to be the line people taking, that we should respect religions (even though at the very most only one can be right). Personally I tolerate religions (up to a point) rather than respect them
(of course respecting someone right to follow a religion is different to respecting the religion)
