ZOMG, the heathen are coming!

Hide the children, Maudie! Hindus eats brainzzzz!

Ahem. For some reason, the American Family Association has me on their mailing list. I never unsubscribed because it's so funny to see what they're all in an uproar about.

Here's their latest group-hysteria:

Hindu to open Senate with prayer

On Thursday, a Hindu chaplain from Reno, Nevada, by the name of Rajan Zed is scheduled to deliver the opening prayer in the U.S. Senate. Zed tells the Las Vegas Sun that in his prayer he will likely include references to ancient Hindu scriptures, including Rig Veda, Upanishards, and Bhagavard-Gita. Historians believe it will be the first Hindu prayer ever read at the Senate since it was formed in 1789.

WallBuilders president David Barton is questioning why the U.S. government is seeking the invocation of a non-monotheistic god. Barton points out that since Hindus worship multiple gods, the prayer will be completely outside the American paradigm, flying in the face of the American motto "One Nation Under God."

...Barton says given the fact that Hindus are a tiny constituency of the American public, he questions the motivation of Senate leaders. "This is not a religion that has produced great things in the world," he observes. "You look at India, you look at Nepal -- there's persecution going in both of those countries that is gendered by the religious belief that is present there, and Hindu dominates in both of those countries."

EEEEK! They're a-coming, Maudie! I'll save the last bullet for you, babe...

About time

"Way of the Ninjabi!" - Muslim women are taking up martial arts. And yay for them, I say...

Also this: "A woman in western India has stripped to her underwear in public to protest over alleged abuses from her husband's family for not providing a dowry."

Much of the population of the world would be better off with a little old-fashioned consciousness-raising, feminazi-style.

Kids today

Man, I'm reading about the big 'terror' in Scotland, and while not wanting to take away from the potential for great tragedy, what can I say? Three big adult men carry out a big mission for Allah (I'm presuming these are Muslim terrorists, although there is no confirmation that I can find at the time of this writing), and one bystander gets treated for a leg injury? Are they recruiting from the school for the slow, or what? When suicide bombers can't even manage to kill themselves... well, words fail me. I'm pretty sure this is wrong of me, but one can't help but feel a tiny smidgeon of hometown pride that our loathsome homegrown terrorists (eg. Tim McVeigh) are individually so much more effective than theirs, Osama bin Laden notwithstanding.

Speaking of which, WTF with Scotland? What did they ever do to anybody? Lately, I mean. Attacking Scotland is like being mad at a bunch of Saudi nationals so you go attack someone entirely different, like, say, Iraq.

Oh wait. Never mind.
