I Need To Stop Reading The News


Seriously.

Maybe I should go on a news fast and give my mind and spirit a break.

Stuff like this just burns me up:
A British primary school teacher arrested in Sudan faces up to 40 lashes for blasphemy after letting her class of 7-year-olds name a teddy bear Muhammad.

Gillian Gibbons, a 54-year-old mother of two from Liverpool, was arrested at her lodgings at Khartoum's Unity High School yesterday, accused of insulting the Prophet of Islam...
This whole Sharia law thing is flat-out evil, and exactly what people like Iran's President I'minajihad eventually expect all of us to live under.

I sure would hate to be an ACLU lawyer or a famous Hollywood actor. Those folks will be the first ones stoned to death in the future Islamic States of America.

I'm a Christian; they'll at least give me a chance to convert to Islam before I refuse and am stoned to death.

Also, I'm the son of an honest to goodness "They Can Have My Gun When They Pry Them From My Cold, Dead Fingers" man from Louisiana.

Guess what I inherited when Don C. passed away?

I'll be taking out a few of the rock throwers before I run out of bullets.

Nah. I'll probably be trampled to death by ACLU lawyers fleeing from rock wielding muslims, that's more my luck.

In Canada you can no longer accuse someone of being anti-free speech, because that would be hate speech.

It's interesting to see who is not speaking out against this travesty.

I hope the brits send in the SAS to rescue that teacher.

I bet after the rape victim gets her 200 lashes and this teacher is prosecuted there will be far fewer expats wanting to work in muslim countries.
