They're still at it

and they still don't get it. All the threats and calls for violence are exactly what that Byzantine emperor was warning about -- keeping in mind that his city was at that time besieged by Muslim invaders. This has got to stop, and that was il Papa's point when he mentioned it: that faith enforced by the sword is unreasonable and must be abandoned as a practice. Yet these groups calling for violent attacks over the quoted lines are still only making the point for that commentary.
