The speech of the culture, the faith and the reason

...I had opportunity to read Pope's speech BenedictoXVI pronounced in Germany, in Ratisbona, that so many angers woke up, or that it took out them out, because they were waiting any opportunity to leave, of the minds confused by the fanaticism and the intolerance.
One more time the violence reaction in front of the freedom of speech.
This time, as another times, the gang fake to be offended by a word that doesn't sound them well, or for a look - "he looked at me bad" - and they threat with a stick.
It is curious that in these days of acceleration of the international insults, the stick gangs are moving from several ideological borders, excited themselves together by the perspective of accelerating the involution of all the orders of the culture of West.
Now it is read among words, and word by word, broken the line, outside of the context, no for to infer new conclusions or to contribute ideas on a thought, but to search and use the words as stones.

They are distrustful, presumptuous, arrogant but with no reason of culture; they don't understand the text and what the text says.
The concepts of Pope's speech speak by themselves, for who knows how to read and to understand. And the final paragraph is beautiful, profound and it give hope.

I transcribe it: ( English version of Vatican )

Faith, Reason and the UniversityMemories and Reflections

(/.../)
(/.../) Here I am reminded of something Socrates said to Phaedo. In their earlier conversations, many false philosophical opinions had been raised, and so Socrates says: "It would be easily understandable if someone became so annoyed at all these false notions that for the rest of his life he despised and mocked all talk about being - but in this way he would be deprived of the truth of existence and would suffer a great loss". The West has long been endangered by this aversion to the questions which underlie its rationality, and can only suffer great harm thereby. The courage to engage the whole breadth of reason, and not the denial of its grandeur - this is the programme with which a theology grounded in Biblical faith enters into the debates of our time. "Not to act reasonably, not to act with logos, is contrary to the nature of God", said Manuel II, according to his Christian understanding of God, in response to his Persian interlocutor. It is to this great logos, to this breadth of reason, that we invite our partners in the dialogue of cultures. To rediscover it constantly is the great task of the university.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than
    just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    However think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could certainly be one
    of the most beneficial in its niche. Amazing blog!

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite
    justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware
    of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly
    do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
