At least I think that’s what he meant:
Pope Francis: Good Catholics Need Not Breed ‘Like Rabbits.’
Hey! You can’t deduct that! (…unless you pay for an upgrade. Let’s talk.)
Via The BlogFather:
“People are just livid. They feel deceived,” says consumer advocate Edgar Dworsky.
Moral of the story: When one is associated, justifiably or not, with patent dishonesty then it behooves one to respond constructively and honestly. An appearance of anything less, whether real or not, will be taken rather badly – especially if the problem disserves one’s cutomers.
This is what our daughter might describe as “an epic fail.”
Look to the Market to correct this: Tax prep competitors will make hay of this one.
You know, if we aren’t careful this will cause people to think of Islam as violent.
Concerning mohammad and islam: The fundamental problem is, well, the fundamentals.
Let’s cut to the chase: mohammad was an illiterate, poedophilic, slave-owning, barbaric warlord. There is nothing of the man’s life that made him worthy of Heaven, let alone posthumous elevation to “prophet.” It is not even meaningful to “insult” the worthless cretin.
Further, any resemblance to Western Ethical Monotheism in the sick, predatory, pathetically sexist pagan cult that grew from his legend is purely coincidental and most unfortunate. “islam” is a cheesy knock-off of Judaism pasted onto uncivilized tribal mores, a comprehensive theo-political doctrine that makes the tyranny of Fascism seem almost enlightened.
Today’s “jihadi” monster represents an authentic islam, mimicking perfectly the beliefs and behaviors of his violent seventh-century progenitor. The sheer numbers of followers in jihad is a terrible indictment of the human condition.
islamic leaders calling today for reform from within deserve our support and protection. Like any parasite run amok, the orthodox strain will kill the host unless it modifies it’s own DNA. From the beginning at the slaughter in Medina, to today, it is the veneration of the erstwhile “prophet” and the acceptance of his values that stand between the faith and Ethical Monotheism. Reformers, first, need to admit the real problem and then deal with it. Will islam’s leaders ever have the courage to look past mohammad?
As to the West, she will collapse if she fails to muster the physical and moral courage to recognize the infection entering her system for what it is and come to understand and accept what she must do. Fortunately most of that is internal. Christianity calls it Repentance; Judaism, Return.
The West faces other massive infections, the foremost being collectivist tyranny, complete with it’s own pagan worship of Gaia. Our Leftist brethren would rather cooperate with and appease the jihadis than stand athwart. Perhaps each thinks that they will be the last rat standing. Neither should be so arrogant.
Mockery should be one weapon; the Truth another.

Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi made an extraordinary speech on New Year’s Day to Cairo’s Al-Azhar and the Awqaf Ministry calling for a long overdue virtual ecclesiastical revolution in Islam. This is something no Western leader has the had the courage to do, certainly not Barack Obama, despite his Muslim education.
Accusing the umma (world Islamic population) of encouraging the hostility of the entire world, al-Sisi’s speech is so dramatic and essentially revolutionary it brings to mind Khrushchev’s famous speech exposing Stalin. Many have called for a reformation of Islam, but for the leader of the largest Arab nation to do so has world-changing implications.
Really, Simon - Khrushchev? Khrushchev never shook Communism’s foundations. No: Somewhere in the ether Martin Luther is smiling; and Thomas Jefferson. Egypt hasn’t seen anything quite like this since Akhen-Aten.
The Left’s minions worked for the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak; Now they’re getting what they wanted good n’ hard.
