    If here were supposed to bring people together, then why did he say Muslims are bloody warmongers?

    I think his job is as much to make fun and punish certain people as it is to bring them together.

    I thought his statement was made in a historical context and not meant to reflect on current day Muslims. While I'm certainly not the one to clarify a pope's motives, I believe that it is his job to try to show people why Catholicism is the right path, but not to ridicule others or cause the type of reaction that is Don Imus's stock in trade. Hence the Pope's apology was appropriate to his motives, but Imus's apology was contrary to his. That was my only point in responding to:

    "Don't you remember John Paul II, the Catholic Pope, apologizing to Muslims for some things he said? He did not apologize for saying those things. He apologized for the way they felt about what he said."

    Big,

    Are you sure you're not channeling Oceanain from themat.com?

    I just didn't (and still don't) know the details behind that stuff. Your answer sounds reasonable to me. Would a contract have to state specifically what transgressions are grounds for termination and forfeiture of the contract sum? Do you think there is a clause that says that if he's fired for doing something bad (though not specifically stated what "bad" is), then he forfeits that sum? Sorry, I don't know much about how contracts are done in the radio business.
