Reminds me of a Sikh friend who won "Catholic of the year" at the Catholic private school he was going too.

A teacher asked her students to bring an item to class that represented their religious beliefs. A Catholic student brought a crucifix. A Jewish student brought a Menorah. A Southern Baptist student brought a CorningWare.

Why you always invite two Morons to go fishing.

FTA:
"The floor of the convention is the worst place for this," said Joel Rainey, executive director of the Mid-Maryland Baptist Association and adjunct professor at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C.
"First, we have an odd proclivity for making public arguments into arguments about people, and there is a young man whom God created at the center of this discussion," he added. "Second, I don't want our work with Muslims and other faith groups damaged by what might be said in the midst of this debate."


I like this Joel Rainey guy, based on this quote alone.  Sense in a seminary, that's something I haven't see often.  Don't see much seminary in Oregon, though, so there's that.

Hah, autocorrect awesomeness!

Why do you have to take two baptists when you go fishing? Because if you take just one, he'll drink all your beer.

What's the difference between a Baptist and a Methodist? A Methodist will say 'howdy' when he sees you in the liquor store.

Well, the Bible does say, "Sikh, and ye shall find".

Next they'll be letting in socialist Jews with long hair.  Preaching to simply love one another.  Can't have that!

Wouldn't he be subject to harsh penalties in some Muslim countries for this?

Hm.  Instrument that's literally the worst way to die that one of the world's greatest warlike empires could think of, symbol of wasting a farkton of money rebuilding a temple that never did much but get torn down repeatedly and waste resources better spent on essentially anything else... instrument used to feed hungry people.

I think for once the Baptists are coming off better than the other religions, there.

Okay, he is there to study archeology, that makes sense. What I guess is this kids is really smart and hardworking, the head of the dig/someone high enough in the dig when told "this Muslim wants to join are archeology program" the "yes, let him please!"  I base this on my brothers experience on one dig, the first year he was a volunteer, the second year they hired him as staff to make sure he would come back. Also they want a chance to say they converted a Muslim if it happens. Let's hope these hysterics don't ruin the experience for the kids.

This kind of stuff matters and can lead to a better good.

Unlees the Muslim is an infiltrator. If he follows identity-based leftist tactics, he'll complain about them not specifically accommodating him next year and sue them into bankruptcy.

Why?

Most Muslim countries have Christian and Jewish minorities and even Christian- and/or Jewish-founded universities.  Death-pogroms isn't actually the standard form of Saturday night entertainment.
 
2014-05-24 04:34:19 AM  
For normal Muslims, Jewish and Christians are "of the book" and believe in the same God.

Then you've got the raving lunatics on the side who aren't helping.

You say that like it's a good thing, but what happens when there's a dead bishop on the landing?

I know many have not considered it, but we don't need to fight over religion. If everyone just respected and tolerated the beliefs of others we could live in a world without lawyers.

Seeing how this is gonna end up a the SBC's national meet and terrorize a city for debate. It's gonna be at least more lively than the Ban Obamacare take 173.

Dear God, they're coming to my neck of the woods....they're gonna drink and fark the place dry.

/and they will, just won't admit it
//at least the other conventions that come to town tip better

The only private school in town was the Catholic school. There were Jews, Muslims, and gasp Methodists at the school. The commonality is that they were all affluent.

Devo: The commonality is that they were all affluent


Reminds me of this Cracked article
"You've probably heard about  not wearing hijabs. If someone shares a photo of a woman who isn't covered from head to toe, she'll be shamed as a slut. And while "slut" is a nasty word everywhere, there it's a prelude to straight-up violence -- our extremists consider things like this to be stoneable offenses. I should note that a picture of the health minister's daughter ended up on one of these sites, and that time it was the photographers who went to jail. Funny how that works."


Any time you let the religious set national policy, you get stuff like this; affluenza is definitely a beneficial disease in these situations
