Holy smoke. The irony and hypocrisy meters just blew-the-f*ck up. Look at this from the American Taliban Traditional Values Coalition's Lou Sheldon (a big fan of John McCain, btw), is aghast that he's not the only game in town in the whole church-state merger deal. Imposing Christianity is saving the country, when it's Islamic law, all of a sudden it's dangerous.

All over the United States, radical Muslims are pushing companies to bow to Islamic law known as Sharia. They are doing this under the guise of religious freedom, but the political and cultural ideology of Islam recognizes only Allah as the supreme ruler over the world.

...What Muslims are doing has been referred to as "creeping Sharia" - that is, getting companies, communities and states to change policies in order to force everyone to obey Sharia law, a totalitarian system of regulations that govern Islamic theocracies. Caribou coffee shops and Church's Fried Chicken are Saudi-owned companies which operate and manage their employees based on Sharia principles.

In America, creeping Sharia is to be imposed by lawsuits and claims of ethnic or religious discrimination. Examples of creeping Sharia are becoming more and more frequent as radical Muslim groups such as the CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) and Muslim Brotherhood either create conflicts between Muslim employees and their employers or exploit such conflicts.

Did I miss the whole doodad about "Christian" pharmacists not filling legal prescriptions because of their beliefs, or the civil servants out in Cali who refused to marry same sex couples because of their religious convictions? Methinks Lou has a terminal case of theocratic envy.

TVC concludes its diatribe by saying "TVC will be publishing regular updates and special reports on the goals of Islam within the United States."

He missed that 'do unto others' bit in the book didn't he. Lol!

A secular system with equal freedom of religion is his defence against Islam as well as Islams defence against him. But fair-play isn't part of his vocabulary.

Or perhaps he thinks his beliefs already suffer an intrinsic handicap and need the assistance? Not much faith held in that idea is there!

With shabbier clothes he would look like what he really is; a crazed street preacher.

Well ... now I know why Church's Fried Chicken tastes like Kentucky Fried Camel. I hope there aren't any trans fats in Saudi crude ...

(Speaking of crude ... Yeah, I know that joke is politically incorrect ... the sand devil made me do it! ...)

Truth is, though, that Sheldon wants America to be a Christian theocracy --- probably more than most Muslim-Americans want a Sharia-based theocracy. I view Sheldon and his ilk as a far bigger threat to the First Amendment than the Muslim-Americans who came here counting on religious freedom.

While the Bush neo-con administration wages a campaign to turn Iraq into a fledgling America, Sheldon religio-cons wage a campaign to sink America into sectarian hatred (and possible violence) just as Iraq has currently. How dreadfully ironic!

Christian neo-Nazis rabidly foaming at the mouth at the very mention of "Allah" is so amusing ... the word "Al-lah" is simply Arabic for "the [one and only] God" ... and when the Bible is translated into Arabic properly, the word "Allah" appears in it from cover to cover!

A recent poll on religion found that 70% of Americans feel that religious salvation can be achieved through religions other than their own. To me, this seems to imply that people are catching on to the idea that all the various religions --- the monotheistic ones, at least --- all worship the same God, but each in their own traditional way. Who among us has the difficult concept of "God" wrapped around his little finger, or stuck neatly into his back pocket? Luckily, as America becomes more religiously tolerant and spiritually sophisticated, people like Lou Sheldon become easier and easier to identify as religious Neanderthals, dinosaurs from a more primitive stage of humanity's spiritual development.

It may be un-Christian for me to say this, but I look forward to the day when these Sheldon-esque dinosaurs are just so many fossils in the ground. The promise of the American vision will not be realized until all races can live together in harmony, justice and equality ... and not until all the religions can do the same.

Cra-zeee! Toys in the attic, Lou is crazee!

The evidence is incontrovertable,
there's no need for the jury to retire.
In all my years of judging,
I have never heard before
Of someone more deserving
Of the full penalty of law.
The way Lou made them suffer,
GLBT, and the others,
Fills me with the urge to defecate!

Since, Lou Shelton, you have revealed your
Deepest fear,
I sentence you to be exposed before
Your peers.

(but they'll come later.......)

And, uh, Church's is owned by Arcapita, inc., which is an international investment firm based in Atlanta? It does have divisions in Bahrain and London as well, but that doesn't make it Muslim. It makes it international. Like such Muslim companies as Toyota and GM.

Crazee, losing his marbles, he is cra-zee.....

We have to be afraid of someone, so it might as well be Muslim people.

The right doesn't have anything other than fear-mongering.

Alex, I personally think that we could do much better than Muslim people to be afraid of.
