Common sense observation 'ill-timed'
"In a message which, given the situation in Iraq, would be seen by many advocates of inter-religious harmony as 'ill timed,' the Vatican called on Catholic women to think hard before entering into marriage with a Muslim, while asking Muslims to show more respect for human rights, gender equality and democracy."
"Calling women 'the least protected member of the Muslim family,' it spoke of the 'bitter experience' western Catholics had with Muslim husbands, especially if they married outside the Islamic world and later moved to his country of origin, according to the Reuters news agency."
Of course, for 'advocates of inter-religious harmony,' Ratzinger's choice of breakfast cereals is probably 'ill-timed.'
