The Holy Father thus sincerely regrets that certain passages of his address could have sounded offensive to the [morbidly twisted and vielleicht insane] sensitivities of the Muslim faithful, and should have [how dare they] been interpreted in a manner [asshats] that in no way corresponds to his intentions. (das ist, they screwed up.)
Indeed it was he who, before the (woefully misguided) religious fervor of Muslim believers, warned secularized Western culture to guard against “the contempt for God and the cynicism that considers mockery of the sacred to be an exercise of freedom” was RIGHT from the freakin' get-go.
In reiterating his respect and esteem for those who profess Islam, he hopes they will be "helped" to understand the correct meaning of his words. Gott in Himmel!
