Christopher Pearson continues his examination of modern religious trends. On a similar theme, here’s Mark Steyn:

More and more, I wonder whether lefties mean it, any of it. Take Rosie O’Donnell. The other day, one of her co-hosts on “The View” was musing on current events and opined, “If you take radical Islam and you want to talk about what is going on there you have to …”

And at this point Rosie interrupted. “One second. Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have a separation of church and state.”

Does she really believe that? That “radical Christianity” is “just as threatening” as “radical Islam”?

A minor point of difference between Christianity and radical Islam: one flies jets into buildings, and the other simply declines to fly:

British Airways has announced that it will review its policy on uniforms following the controversy over its suspension of a check-in worker for wearing a small Christian cross.

Willie Walsh, the airline’s chief executive, said it had become clear that its policy would need to change in the light of widespread criticism surrounding the case of Nadia Eweida.

The airline had faced the prospect of a boycott by international travellers after an internet website was set up to co-ordinate an angry response to the suspension of Ms Eweida. A Church of England vicar went on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme to urge people to shun the airline because he said it effectively discriminated against Christians.

It’s terrorism, is what it is! Earlier mention of this case here.

    1. Well fat Rosie also said not to fear terrorists because they are “mothers and fathers”.

      Great fat stupid bitch.

    1. O/T – I read in the local paper* that the proposed nuclear reactors here in Australia will generate enough ‘nuclear waste’ over the course of 60 years to produce ‘37,000 – 45,000’ nuclear warheads.

      This nuclear power caper is sounding like a better and better idea every time I hear of it…

    1. It’s true, people like Rosie OD are lucky they have a job in show business.

      They don’t have enough common sense to make it in the real world.

      You can say that again…in fact, in addition to quoting you…I’ll say it, again.

      Great fat stupid bitch.

    1. Everybody knew there were witches.  LOTS of people had met one or two of them, and experienced the hellish results of their curses.  Bunches of people all together saw demons.  Truly.  Every now and then those bunches of people grabbed one of those witches and burned them to a crisp, in front of the whole ‘community.’  Hey.  It takes a village to burn a witch!!

      Now, we have Diplomats, well educated people with great table manners (ie, Condi… & Dubya) who believe that EVERYONE really truly wants and desires freedom and happiness.  All they need is a chance, mannn.  Truly.  Just like that Grandma who marched off with her explosive girdle, to do gooddddd.

      And there is Dubya, right friendly with Putin, and a couple of days later that Russian is whacked with poloniam in London, but Putin has a great soul, y’know.  And then there is Gemayal, deader than a bloody dodo like in Chicago;  and Putin shaking hands with Amadinajadddd whilst selling him nuke warhead stuff, or whatever,  and we STILL haven’t seen Baker’s report!

      Gosh, talk about an eventful month.

    1. Has everyone met heather?

      who believe that EVERYONE really truly wants and desires freedom and happiness.

      I take it you do not believe this, heather?

      If not, what do you propose?

    1. Nope, not all people want freedom and happiness.  Some of them want to find something to eat;  or security; or freedom from witches.  Or freedom from the Weather.

      What do I propose?  Freedom from fear is a big one.  I would like to put the fear of god and a nuclear winter into the Middle Eastern Peoples.  I would like all the sweet grannies in Gaza to be AFRAID to put on an explosive girdle because if they do, all their descendents, all 41 of their grandchildren, will meet Grandma in the afterlife by next week.  I am to the point where I do not worry at all about killing “innocent’ people, “innocent” women and “innocent’ children.  If it’s my innocent grandchildren versus that evil granny’s grandchildren, well, there is no contest.  None.

      The Middle East is financed by a jizya from you and me, everytime we buy fuel oil and gas.  So, we have to be afraid of them.  Dubya is.  He is trying his best to balance stabalizing Iraq into a decent country, with cheap oil for North American voters (I’m Canadian, so we are along for your ride.  And I might add, it is now minus 35 Celsius and Fahrenheit, so that fuel oil is burning merrily, keeping the Saudis in bizness).

      I take it you do not believe this, heather?

      Given the fact that at least a few hundred million people happily embrace a religion that micromanages every aspect of their pathetically circumscribed lives, I’d say Heather raises a fair point.

    1. Well since there is a lot of sand in the Middle East and Heather is looking at going thermo nuclear the place can be glassed over and made into a skating rink.

    1. Same with climate change: there comes a point in the debate when I want to say to the Greenlefty, “If you really believed this nightmare apocalypse you’ve been trying to persuade me of, shouldn’t you be, well, I dunno, a little more scared than you appear to be?

      Ummm, heather..you may jump the “ride” anytime you choose. You did with a few of your leaders. Fact is…all are “along for the ride”.

      Given the fact that at least a few hundred million people happily embrace a religion cult that micromanages every aspect of their pathetically circumscribed lives, I’d say Heather raises a fair point.

      There, just a touch up. While a fair point it may have been, the outcome is for game, set, match. And all are in the arena, along for our “ride”.

    1. Rosie O’Donnell. It must suck to be so stupid.  Rosie lacks impulse control. She just blurts whatever pin-head thought pops into her mind.  She’s much like Miranda Divide, hell she probably IS Miranda Divide. Ignore her.

      Just as threatening?  For gosh sake womyn, if you lived the lifestyle you chose in Iran, you would have been thrown off a building or had a wall pushed over on you.

      There are differences, big big differences.  What a complete and utter tosser.

    1. #2 (*Im not going to name it here because its a shit paper, but alas, its the only one we have in this state)

      Obvious. The West Australian. A state that suffers from collective stupidity when it comes to matters nuclear. My father lives there and recently earnestly suggested I read Helen Caldicott’s book. He might be 80 but he is a typical sandgroper.

      Curiously many years ago he built a cardboard pyramid that would sharpen razor blades. So he said. And when we were little were were dosed on apple cider vinegar as a popular book at the time said it was a cure-all.  Note the mindset. New Age thinking and a anti-nuclear mindset go together.

      Tragic to only have one rag to read.
      I remember the other paper in the state which came out in the afternoon.
      Burke and co wouldnt let WA newspapers, the owners of the West Australian, bid for it when it was going under because it was “bad for competition”.
      As a result it went under and nothing sprung up to replace it. Typical labour management really.

    1. #14, you’ve described Rosie O’Donnell perfectly.  I agree, she is best ignored, like those crazy people you see walking up and down the street, berating people and banging on windows.  In fact, that’s how I feel about much of the left these days.  Whether they believe what they’re saying or not, they’re just crazy.

    1. Just as threatening?  For gosh sake womyn, if you lived the lifestyle you chose in Iran, you would have been thrown off a building or had a wall pushed over on you.

      Actually, I want Rosie to live in Iran.

      I doubt that this would ever happen, but think about it.  Either the Iranians will treat her like other, ummmmmm, “law breakers”, or they will have to tolerate her presence (aka “negative influence for up and coming Islamic fanatics”) for the sake of international publicity…..which would be a serious annoyance to those creatures.

      They might find a third way around this, but the ride would be fun to watch until then.

      And if they don’t find a third way, they’ll just take care of Rosie O’Donnell according to Islamic law…..  won’t they?

    1. Actually, I want Rosie to live in Iran. 

      The first time she opened her fat yap (and that would be about a minute and a half after she got there) they’d haul her off to the nearest soccer stadium.  Rosie isn’t famous enough to rate international publicity.  In fact, that’s probably what keeps her so pissed off all the time.

    1. Rosie O’Donnell—the stereotypical fat, ugly chick, insecure with low self-esteem, mix in the lesbian attribute, and voila, diversity for the multi-culti crowd.

      Ain’t it great being progressive?

      Ditto.  And Rosie is the perfect skank that proves the point.
