I have no idea what went down, or how, or who really said what. I wasn’t there, and neither were most everyone else who has an opinion on the matter. All I know is that what is at stake here, literally and figuratively, is a life and death argument over spit.
Apparently a Pakistani Christian woman better known as Asia Bibi, was working the fields, outnumbered by Muslim women, when she drank from the well. Bibi’s “filthy” Christian lips touched their communal drinking cup. An argument escalated where religious insults where hurled from both sides and suddenly someone must die due to blasphemy. That’s quite a short trip from point A to point B.
I can’t even believe what is happening in England on so many levels.
If these terrorist attacks continue, the anti-Muslim sentiment will far outweigh the cries of those who claim all are welcome in the name of religious freedom and religious tolerance. I hate to mention the name Trump, but in light of recent events, I can’t say the travel ban isn’t uncalled for. We may soon see the United Kingdom enact a travel ban even more encompassing, which would actually be welcomed by its citizenry.
I am angry. No one likes mass murder, especially when it comes to kids.
I like to see the best of people who have come out in this tragedy: police officers, hospital and ambulance workers, people offering free rides and free hotel rooms.
It isn’t clear whodunit yet.
Who wants to go out with a bang like this? All it does is serve the opposite of the intent. If you want to kill in the name of God, then people don’t like your God, don’t like you, and don’t like “your kind.” It only continues the fear of your religion and persecution of anyone deemed to follow the same religion.
And Muslim ban block – take two. We’re a bunch of bleeding heart idiots. We look like complete nincompoops trying to argue for the terrorists. Yes, come on in.
We are like the mother who just gave birth next to a lion who watches her newborn mistakenly imprint on the very beast that will eat it alive.
This is like sympathizing with Nazi sympathizers. This is like inviting a child molester to babysit your children. Allow your little altar boy to spend some quality time with chaste men at the local priesthood. Invite the Ku Klux Klan to the backyard barbeque, maybe some skinheads, too. Arrange a blind date for your daughter with a convict.
