Sounds like the penny is starting to teeter in certain quarters:
The head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales has echoed criticism of Muslim leaders for not doing enough to denounce acts of terrorism.
Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor told the GMTV Sunday Programme he agreed with comments made by the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey.
Crivens! Is there something in the Holy Water ?
Needless to say, there's some Grade A backsliding coming up:
Cardinal Murphy O'Connor also called on the West to tackle the gross poverty and inequality which was the root cause of terrorism.
"If the western world were to devote itself in a very real and sacrificial way to helping the two thirds of the world and especially those parts of the world that live in gross poverty, and did it in a way that actually denied themselves, then I think we'd have a more peaceful world." He said part of the terror threat came out of countries that felt they had not been treated justly.
Watch out for those Botswanan suicide bombers, Cardinal!
