"Pope Benedict XVI's Regensburg speech gives no rational ground for the
commotion now being stirred up from Pakistan to Europe. In our
globalised, individualised and thoroughly economicised world, the
purely technical use of reason threatens to bring about a value gap.
That the Pope should try to close this gap with religious means may
not have proved effective, yet this is exactly where all believers
should find common ground."
