Rage from the “Religion of Peace”

Why are people calling this religion a “religion of peace?” Call it for what it is.

The Pope’s arrival in Turkey caused havoc.

Pope Benedict XVI is set to arrive in Turkey on Tuesday, and tensions are running high. Mehmet Ali Agca, the Turk who shot Pope John Paul II in 1981, wrote to Benedict: “Your life is in danger. You absolutely must not come to Turkey.” And several weeks ago, a Turk named Ibrahim Ak stood outside Italy’s consulate in Istanbul and fired a gun while proclaiming his desire to strangle the pope. As he was arrested, Ak shouted: “I am happy to be a Muslim!” He said that he hoped the Pope would decide not to come to Turkey, and that his actions would inspire other Turks to violence: “God willing, this will be a spark, a starter for Muslims … God willing, he will not come. If he comes, he will see what will happen to him.”

Turkish officials are trying to make sure nothing does. According to the Associated Press, they have “mobilized an army of snipers, bomb disposal experts and riot police, as well as navy commandos to patrol the Bosporus Straits flowing through Istanbul.” However, Meliha Benli Altunisik, a professor at the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, questioned whether such precautions were necessary at all: “Will there be protests? Yes, of course. But I cannot take seriously the notion that he is in physical danger. He will rather be ignored.”

Garden Guy and the homosexuals

The “tolerants” being intolerant again.

Landscape business Garden Guy refuses to work for a homosexual couple in Houston. Sabrina Farber, a co-owner of Garden Guy politely and honestly wrote in her email to the “couple” that “I need to tell you that we cannot meet with you because we choose not to work for homosexuals.”

This email is now all over the world. The owner of Garden Guy are receiving death threats by the those who condemned the Christians for being intolerant. They even received threats of sodomizing their children!

These are all from the very people who are “tolerant” and “diverse.”

Beheaded girls were Ramadan ‘trophies’

Update: The “three Christian high school girls who were beheaded” was a Ramadan “trophy” by Indonesian militants who conceived the idea after a visit to Philippines jihadists, a court heard yesterday.

The girl’s severed heads were dumped in plastic bags in their village in Indonesia’s strife-torn Central Sulawesi province, along with a handwritten note threatening more of such attacks.

The note read: “Wanted: 100 more Christian heads, teenaged or adult, male or female…

Partial Birth Abortion

The Supreme Court meets today to hear the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, passed by Congress and signed by the President in 2003.

What is partial-birth abortion? Pictures paint thousands of words-

pba-1.jpg pba-2.jpgpba-3.jpgpba-4.jpgpba-5.jpg

Many people are “offended” by pictures of aborted babies. Why?

Why are they not angry at the murderer of the babies or the system that allows it?

 

The pro-death rhetoric is always the same. The baby in the mother’s womb is not really a baby?

 

When does a baby becomes a “real” baby? Or what constitutes a “real” baby?

 

Some would say consciousness! I would say, “Can we kill the drunkards then?”

 

Some would say no sense of understanding! I would say, “Can we kill all the idiots in our high schools then?”

 

The bottom line is this, it is an inconvenient issue. It becomes an inconvenience to humans and therefore it is the humans who would exterminate them for the sake of their own pleasure, right?

Don’t click if you don’t want to see the parents of this dead baby (through partial birth abortion).
