Extortion, Muslim-style
Posted by: McQ on Monday, June 18, 2007

These sorts of examples really don't help moderate Islam's reputation among much of the Western world:
Pakistan's religious affairs minister said the U.K.'s award of a Knighthood to author Salman Rushdie justified suicide attacks, the Associated Press reported.

``The West is accusing Muslims of extremism and terrorism. If someone explodes a bomb on his body, he would be right to do so unless the British government apologizes and withdraws the `sir' title'', AP quoted Mohammed Ijaz ul-Haq as saying today in Pakistan's parliament.

The award is an occasion for the world's ``1.5 billion Muslims to look at the seriousness of this decision,'' AP quoted the minister as saying.
"The West is accusing Muslims of extremism and terrorism", but unless you do as we say, we'll be 'right' to do it in this case.

OK, Brits, your move.

I would say it is impossible to beat Billy’s satirical comment, yet there is this reality.

I’m d@mn near an atheist—certainly there are parts of the Nicene creed I think are trumped up BS—yet the report at that link makes me want to stage a pro-orthodoxy intervention.

JUST. YIKES.

Truly weird. "It wasn’t about intellect" she said. Amen(or whatever) to that. It looks like Washington state is vying with California in the weirdness sweepstakes. I do hope her pilgrimage to Mecca is thoroughly covered by the media.

SPLITTER, Heretic...I’ll bet you that you’re som kind of Arianist or Donatist! Aren’t you!? How many natures does Christ have, is Mary really the Theotokos or "merely" the Christotokos? You should EXPECT the Spanish Inquisition. And what about the Filioque? The Forgiveness of Sins, the World to Come, the Resurrection of the Dead??? Most importantly the Holy, CATHOLIC and Apostolic Church? I’m keep’n an eye on you from now on....

Peter was just a successful, yet self-agrandizing, a$$. "Upon this rock..." is a justification for popery so thin it’s transparent.

Besidese, nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

Although it’s the little known Turks and Caicos Inquisition who’re really vicious. They use bunnies, chained so they can nibble a little at a time with their pointy teeth...
