George Weigel on THAT papal lecture again

I've probably posted six times in this here blog, plus comments elsewhere, about the outrage over Papa Benedict's Regensburg lecture. Like the many who offered only soundbites, polemics and/or death threats, I have been missing out on the meat of his lecture. I've read it, of course, in its entirety, about three times, but I was focusing on THAT particular quote from the Byzantine Emperor, and why the violent reactions can only be over-reactions. Luckily, people like George Wiegel are here to point out the truth behind the sensational headlines. [Link found on Mark Shea's blog.]
