Colonel Sanders tries to be more Muslim than the imams. The Vatican is investigating KC's Bishop Finn. And the Hobby Lobby Bible museum, soon to be built in the heart of the nation's capital, gets an official name. (And it's not "Hobby Lobby Bible Museum.")

    From the linked article:

    “Muslim leaders are “baffled” as to where the perception began that alcohol-based products, like hand wipes, were frowned upon in the first place.”

    Baffled, huh? I think the perception might have developed from the fact that many followers of your religion oppose alcohol to such an extreme degree that some Muslim cab drivers refuse to transport riders who are carrying closed bottles of alcohol.

    If I were running an English eatery that had gone halal due to a heavy Muslim population, I too would have erred on the side of caution due to the potential volatile reaction from Muslims and Guardian readers. Who wants to be accused of “Islamophobia” on the front page because Muslims unwittingly wiped their fingers with something haram?

    The grand irony, of course, is that the attempt to avoid criticism and bad publicity nonetheless brought criticism and bad publicity. As in an abusive relationship, nothing they did would have been the right thing. When she doesn’t do what she’s told, she gets hit. When she does what she’s told, she gets hit for not doing it correctly.

    Magistrate Pesto must be an athiest, because he is missing a very important point. The whole point of the Christian faith, Catholic or otherwise, is that Christ FORGIVES.

    Since Father Maurizio is a priest, we know he is a Godly man, so we must assume he has faithfully repented for any sins he may have committed. So there is no Hyde to lock up. There is only a Jekyll to set free. Christ purges Hyde and leaves us with Jeckyll.

    I maintain that to keep him imprisoned is a violation of his sincerely held beliefs and therefore of the First Amendment. Father Maurizio is a Political Prisoner. FREE FATHER MAURIZIO!
