  • Cat Stevens comes to mind. It’s basically the contemporary attraction to Eastern “exotica”. Some people must believe that Jesus was born in Kansas, U.S.A.

    It always amazes me how poorly informed most people are. Ignorance CAN be cured but unless you actually try it will remain.
    Islam is a death cult and they are totally intolerant of any other viewpoint, This makes it incompatible with freedom.

    The Friday Toronto Star has the latest insane rant from Haroooooon about those damn Christians, but they also have a story about muslims encouraging other muslims to get out and vote because we need a more islam friendly government. Yes, the Toronto Star, Canada’s biggest promoter of islam and socialism.

      You know, that just might backfire on Harpoon — Muzz’s, whatever you think of them are pretty shrewd. Justin is toast, thanks to Kathleen (they’ve already turned against her), Can’t see them voting for Tommy the Commy — they know he won’t be good for business. So . . .

    Her so-called “Muslim faith” is so academic and dry and intellectual that only an academic can delude themselves into cherrypicking ideology from this monstrous cult and ignore the obvious evidence.
