They are taking that "religion of peace" thing a little too literally

Mega Steve: Also, when you play "Jesus loves me" backwards, it sounds like "We smell sausage". Clearly, God wants us to eat sausage, which comes from pigs. Islamists don't eat pigs, so they are going against God.

Then again, they do kill gheys and oppress women, so they can't be all bad

You can't be for killing gays and enjoying sausage at the same time, that line of thinking is Fundamentally flawed!!

/I'm tired, and have no idea where I'm going with this

Same here; BED TIME!!

DancingElkCondor: Nothing shows more ignorance than a Liberal warbling "Islam is a Religion of Peace"...even though Islam forbids gays, abortion, womens rights....all issues Liberals support.

Liberals would be going full-apoplexy if Christians were doing this

Good Ghali, Miss Mali.

Seriously, this sucks. I've always wanted to visit Timbuktu, but who knows how long these asshats will be in charge, or what else they'll do to the place. fark them.

By order of the prophet
We ban that boogie sound
Degenerate the faithful
With that crazy Casbah sound
But the Bedouin they brought out
The electric kettel drum
The local guitar picker
Got his guitar picking thumb
As soon as the Sharia
Had cleared the square
They began to wail...

Sharia don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah

nucular bum: I'm entertaining the idea of raising a group of militant musicians to arm ourselves and go fight these farksticks, First, continually blast them with really loud music to disorient them, then go in for the kill. So call me a bigot, Music must be defended from these perverters of religion.

/i generally believe condemning someone to nonexistence because of one's beliefs is the greatest sin of all
//but they're doing much more -- oppression and mutilation to name but two
///fark those guys, seriously

I was thinking something similar. My idea was to get all those who play their music at ridiculous levels when driving down the street, send them armed to the areas that are in peril, and let them fight it out. I know its not the best idea, but on one hand they will be fighting intolerance, and on the other, I won't have to hear them at 1AM when they drive by shaking my windows.

/peace out

I dont see what the problem is, they are practicing their religion the way it is stated. Thats their right as a society, who are we to proclaim from thousands of miles away indpendent of their culture and history how they should live. Unless you're a bigot and you hate muslims, neitheir christianity nor secularism should be proclaiming some kind of moral high ground over others. Thats pretty much the exact definition of a bigot.

In a way, it's almost comforting that there seems to be genuine evil out there in the world.
You can say the fanatics are a product of their environment, perhaps, but their minds aren't there any more.
You could have a movie about rallying about and killing these zealots, and you wouldn't really have any quandaries about their deaths.

FloydA: This is what the fundies are threatened by.
Khaira Arby and Her Band perform "Sourgou", "Salou," "Cinquantenaire," and "Goumou".

Interesting to see. Public stations strike again, those socialist bastards.
