The willful blindness of the Vatican

After the violence (see post below), the pope's spokesperson actually said the following.  Apparently, irony is unknown at the Vatican.
The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, issued a statement on Wednesday saying that "unjustified offense and provocations" against Muslims have "sometimes tragic results" that "nourish tension and hatred" and unleash "unacceptable violence."
This statement is outrageous since it comes from a church that has been persecuting gay people all around the world for as long as I can remember. This, too, qualifies as "unjustified offense and provocations" that have "tragic results" that "nourish tension and hatred" and unleash "unacceptable violence".

It seems they don't have any mirrors in the Vatican.
