What's on tap, barkeep? Christ's blood...Mohammed's urine...Eh, I'll just have a beer.

Enjoy eternal damnation, infidels...

This post is not the early edition of Friday Porn, but another reminder how batshit crazy the faith of Islam is. The International Herald Tribune reports that an Egyptian religious scholar issued a fatwa stating a man could overcome his faith's objections to working alongside a woman through...breast-feeding. This decree is one of thousands issued every month by Muslim clerics, some of whom use fatwas to bridge the gap between the Islam and modernity, others to govern the daily behavior of their flock through strict literal interpretations of the Koran (i.e. martyrdom killings of non-believers, children, and innocents; subjugation of women, etc).

The IHT reporter also interviews Grand Mufti, the alternately progressive/retrograde scholar who decreed six years ago that Mohammed's disciples blessed themselves by drinking his urine. Mufti later said his fatwa was an interpretation not meant to encourage piss-drinking.

The breast-feeding opinion was roundly criticized and mocked by pundits - and its author eventually recanted his ruling - but this incident is just another example of Islam's bizarre occult rituals. Their religious leaders have created a backwards society that trails the rest of the world in human rights, personal freedom, and basic dignity.

How xenophobic can one man be?

Hardly xenophobic. I think I've been quite fair in skewering all peculiar behavior done in the name of a higher power. Wakey, wakey, Mr. Iwasthere. This is no "War on Terror"; this is a cultural war against a sometimes virulent belief system.

More sick stuff from some other heatstroked death-cult:

2 Kings 18:27
"Hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall that they may eat their own dung and drink their own piss with you?"

The Muslims don't have a monopoly on dumb shit, allegedly to please ghosts, from that part of the world, but that part of the world certainly appears to have the monoply on dumb shit, allegedly done to please ghosts.

Let's delve into heavy relativism... my priest tells everyone he can turn edible styrofoam into God almighty; therefore, it's OK for a crackpot mullah to scrape pre-teen girl's clitoris off with a Campbells soup lid. Pretty clear to me: The first is an example of a forlorn gay man trying to suppress his sexuality with incense and verse, the second is a fucking savage. If you can't see the difference between the Enlightenment, and a man who divines the future by splattering shit and blood on the wall of a cave, then you're one lazy fucking relativist.

That's a relief. But you are one lazy cultural imperialist, whose wise words won't make my Catholic foreskin grow back, because that ghost told Abraham to kill his child and then decided that genital mutilation was the way to go, and my 17 year old mother believed it, too.

I've been paying attention, and if the Muslims want to harm me the way WASPs have, they have some catching up to do.

But they're all ridiculous.
