The Gypsy Scholar has a whole series of posts on misinterpretations of the Pope's speech. He even got the Vatican to change their official English translation (he thinks).

I noticed that Hitchens doesn't think much of what the pope said. Hitch focuses on Benedict's factual error and interprets the pope's words generally as a rejection of reason.

I'll have to reread the pope's lecture, but on first reading it sure looked as if he was promoting reason over violence.
