Religious fanaticism, not just for Muslims anymore.

Hi Brit,

Some people give religion a bad name, and it usually seems to be preacher types of one sort or another.  The Muslims have a few, and, of course, the names Jim Jones and David Koresh come to mind representing the Christians.  And the list keeps growing, let me introduce you to Emeka Ezeuko, also known as Reverend King: Nigerian preacher to hang for fire.  I wonder if he bought the gasoline with money from the collection plate?

    At least your Martin Luther was a true burning crusader Grit. I would rather have attended your Rev King’s church than the Lagos killer’s.

    And how about Australia’s Islamic Mufti????? He’s now claiming he has more right to live in Australia and continue his outrageous raping comments that us descendents of colonial convicts.

    His comments from his bed of exile in Egypt set my blood on fire again so I wrote on my own blog this time about my need to take blood pressure tablets.

    He slammed you POMS too Brit – he reckons of all Westerners, you guys are the biggest liars.

    Religion sometimes gives decent people a bad name.

    Hi Megan,

    I saw a bit on TV yesterday about a woman in Iran who is going to be hung because she killed a man who was trying to rape her. Of course, if she hadn’t fought the guy off, she would have been stoned to death. Perhaps that explains the burka thing?

    Now, kindly explain “POMS.”

    Ah Brit I’ve been dieing for you to ask me what POM is. Did you know…the affectionate Aussie term for people from England, POM, is an acronym from the days where the well to do English, the free settlers, bought their own sea passage to Australia. It stands for Passage Of Means. In colonial days, Australian settlers were either convict stock or POMs.
    So, according to the dear Sheiks claims, you Poms have more right to live in Australia than I do.

    And…it is dreadful that women in Iran are dammed if they do or don’t.

    Thanks Megan. I’m sure I’ll have more to say about Iran in the near future.
