The National Organization for Marriage is against gay marriage and created a new initiative called 2 Million for Marriage which they have abbreviated to 2M4M which is also craigslist speak for 2 gay men looking for a third. Who knew the NOM was so kinky?
From the Toronto Sun:
A Mississauga woman says she’ll be the victim of an honour killing by her estranged husband, a Muslim extremist, when she’s deported to Pakistan at the end of the month.
Roohi Tabassum, 44, says Faisal Javed, a businessman and Sunni community leader, will be waiting for her in their native Pakistan when she’s sent back on April 28.
She has to report to officials at Pearson airport on that date for the trip.
Tabassum said she’s received written threats from Javed, who’s outraged she’s employed in a Mississauga beauty salon where she styles the hair of women and men.
She said he’s furious she touches the hair of men and is suspicious she may have a boyfriend, which she strongly denies.
“In three weeks I will be put to my death,” she said at her Mississauga home. “There will be bloodshed that will go on and on.”
Her older brother, Arif, has vowed to retaliate against members of Javed’s family if she’s attacked, Tabassum said. They in turn will strike back, she said.
Tabassum was smuggled into Canada from the U.S. in 2001 and filed an unsuccessful refugee claim. An appeal also was unsuccessful.
This goes with the previous post. (It deals with Catholicism so NSFW)
What happens if a Catholic priest molests children?
Usually, he’s protected by the Church hierarchy. Maybe he’ll eventually have his parish or diocese taken away, or be switched to another one — often after years of serial abuse. But there’s a good chance he’ll stay in the Church.
So what happens if a Catholic priest publicly supports ordaining women? Well, then he’s excommunicated on the double.
“Nearly 5,000 Catholic priests [in the U.S.] have sexually abused over 12,000 Catholic childrenâ€¦but they were not excommunicated,” says Father Roy Bourgeois, who faced the latter scenario after helping celebrate what the Vatican considers to be an illegitimate ordination mass in August 2008. Bourgeois, a Vietnam veteran with a Purple Heart who became a prominent peace activist, stood with the trailblazers of the female ordination movement in Lexington, Ky., to make Janice Sevre-Duszynska a Catholic priest.
For thumbing his nose at one of the most sacred tenets of the conservative hierarchy — that only men are worthy of the priesthood — Bourgeois was swiftly rebuked by the Vatican in a letter two months later, telling him he had 30 days to renounce his actions or face excommunication.
My sister and brother in law had $500 stolen out of their hotel room safe yesterday in New Orleans. I don’t know too many details yet but did a quick search on YouTube and found the clip above. You have to be careful of everything.
So like, why can’t christians (or is this just a catholic thing) eat meat today?
I hate to break it to my religious friends but fish is meat. It’s not a carrot with gills.
Oh, you can only eat white meat? Then why not chicken?
Oh, because it is meant to be a sacrifice? How horrible it must be to have to eat lobster and shrimp instead of steak.
Oh because it is tradition? So it’s ok to do something blindly because it’s what has always been done. Gotcha.
One star Amazon reviews of classic movies, music and literature. Today we take a look at The Hobbit:
Don’t read this book, it is impossible to follow, has way too many details, and was down right boring. Horrible book.
Maybe 1 star is a little low for this book…should have given it like…2, but there are just better books. how can this be the best if there is better? i reccomend a better book like Harry Potter(1-4).
This is just a horrible book. My school is forcing me to read it. It is just so boreing. I don’t even think my teacher can take it anymore beacause we have been reading it for 3 monthes and we only got up to chapter 10. You see, we have to read it outloud in class. I dought we will ever finish this horrible book. Spend your money on Harry Potter instead.
Do not read this book. There was absolutely nothing about answering how long it would take to go by boat or by tomorrow. Doesn’t make sense? It doesn’t have to make sense it is all fantasy. And what’s this thing about hairy feet? Oh yes, the Joy of Cooking was never mentioned as being on Bilbo’s cook book shelf in his little Hobbit house. Very disappointing. I would have given the book 0 stars but this isn’t an option. And why didn’t the author stay alive long enough to defend his work from this vicious critique?
Why people claim to enjoy this book I’ll never know. The writing style doesn’t flow, the characters aren’t particularly all that well developed, and the storyline isn’t all that interesting. This is a prime example of what happens when Star Trek and Star Wars dorks pick up a book. They see the word “wizard” or “dragon” and get all gooey with excitement and think it’s great literature.
This “book” is a travesty to everything ever written. Swoar, lil’ fools wack for REALL. J.R.R. Tolkien is clearly a man of minimal intellect and an insufficient grasp on what a a real novel is composed of. Boy, ain’t nuffin’ but a playa-hatin scrub!.
The popes and the priests say to the poor people: “You need
not read the Bible. You cannot understand it. That is the reason it
is called a revelation. We will read it for you, and you must
believe what we say. We carry the key of hell. Contradict us and
you will become eternal convicts in the prison of God.”
This is the freedom of the Catholic Church.
