Lets put an end to this and get back to the thread.
Here is the text for JP2 kissing the Qur’an:
May 14, 1999 - John Paul II kisses the Koran (Qu’ran) at the Vatican.
To the objectors who claim that this book was not the Koran, we present an excerpt from an interview with FIDES News Service (June 1, 1999). In it, Chaldean Catholic Patriarch Raphael I affirmed that he was present when John Paul II kissed the Muslim “holy” book:
"On May 14th I was received by the Pope, together with a delegation composed of the Shi'ite imam of Khadum mosque and the Sunni president of the council of administration of the Iraqi Islamic Bank. There was also a representative of the Iraqi ministry of religion. ....
"At the end of the audience the Pope bowed to the Muslim holy book, the Qu'ran, presented to him by the delegation, and he kissed it as a sign of respect. The photo of that gesture has been shown repeatedly on Iraqi television and it demonstrates that the Pope is not only aware of the suffering of the Iraqi people, he has also great respect for Islam."
Let us not debate this any further, he DID KISS the QUR’AN, end of story. Please Google it yourself, there are hundreds of pics, with text and references. He has done a lot more questionable things, than just Kiss this book of the religion of Islam. BTW, Islam (and the QUR’AN) denies the Christ and The Most Holy Trinity.
