You're either with us or a fucking terrorist.
"Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it." George Bernard Shaw
This must be necessarily true in order for a person to be a good and loyal patriot. Americans seem to take it to heart; we really believe we're the best despite the shit we pull on other countries (though, to be fair, no country is good and pure). Now we're in this thing against Muslims and people are so uptight and afraid over silly little things. A school group, studying the world's religions, visited a synagogue, attended a gospel, and met Hindus. But people don't get all upset until they visit a mosque. And they don't even get upset when they visit the mosque- they wait until there's all this renewed tension surrounding Muslims to release a video of some of the students participating in the prayer to get all upset. The cool thing is the parents aren't upset at all- school officials are saying it was a bad move on the teacher's part. Which is silly: they can visit holy places of other religions, but the very fact that people got upset over them visiting a mosque is the whole point of the class, called "Enduring Beliefs and the World Today."
"The backlash against the visit... underscored the need for such exchanges."
Um, exactly. How can Christians, who are supposed to turn the other cheek and be accepting of others in the name of the Lord, be so hard hearted against another group of people, for no reason? I understand the flaw in my rhetorical question: humans are flawed, religion or not. But when the religion you profess to follow preaches such humble traits, aren't you a little more of a hypocrite if you don't follow?
These maps are awesome!
Also, this is interesting:
1. Fox is the Devil's station.
F = 6th letter
O = 15th letter (1+5=6)
X = 24th letter (2+4=6)
2. Sarah Palin is an anagram of Sharia Plan. Think about it. (Thanks, Reddit!)
