I bet all these Jesus pimps are worried that they will no longer be able to bilk the millions from the gullible if Islam becomes the official world religion. That clown is an unadulterated hate monger but I can see why republicans like the guy.
Then it will be the job of Allah pimps to bilk the millions from the gullible, Cliffy. Either way, religion wins.
If the Catholic Church is forcing your mother to do something she does not want to do, you should phone the police.
Me either, but then I'm not religious. My mother is oppressed by the Catholic church. I used to be. Poor Herald is oppressed by whatever brand of Christianity he practises. Apparently you aren't particularly Christian.
Tell me, please, what keeps you from beating the crap out of someone you dislike, or driving like an idiot on the sidewalk, or doing other stuff that's against the rules?
Grow up. No-one's physically twisting her arm. They conned her into falling for the fear of god crap. Apparently someone convinced you that driving like an idiot would end up with you being fined and maybe jailed.
I don't see anyone twisting an Islamic woman's arm to wear that weil. Or twisting an Islamic man's arm to make sure his head actually touches the floor when he prays. It's fear that makes most of these people obey the rules.
Anna, Anna! You are truely missing the point.....find me a nation on earth where you are required by law to attend confession........or to perform any other Christian rite.
I any number of Islamic countries, women are publically whipped for "public indencency" such as wearing trousers, showing wrists, ankles or hair....or their face.....for being seen inpublic unescorted by husband, brother, uncle or husband........in Iran, I know of a case where a young women recieved a caning for eating an icecream "in a provocative manner". Homosexuals are stoned to death, adulterers shot, people whipped into the Mosque at prayer time......and the government employes a special religious police force to enforce religious law.
To compare that with the consequences of a belief system your mother has CHOSEN (key word) is a little.....disengenuous. Consequences of her own actions.
