It has been reported widely on traditionalist websites that Pope Benedict prayed with a Islamic Imam towards Mecca once. I am not saying this happened for sure, but I wonder since it has been spoken of so often. My question is if this was a sinful thing. If the Pope had just said “let’s both pray together to the best we can with our consciences” it would have been fine. But turning to Mecca seems like a big problem. What do you think?
