An Iraqi Catholic bishop, on American evangelicals doing their thing out there, and where they should do it:

"Do we really need this huge amount of Bibles? Do they think we don't know Jesus Christ? Let them go to the Muslim areas and distribute their Bibles. If they do it in Muslim neighborhoods, the Muslims will kill them." (Via Dappled Things.)

But, of course, Muslims respect and revere Jesus, right? (Poster link via Otto da Fe.)
