I swear, I should convert to muslim so I can get anything I want handed to me bent over backwards on a platter. "Lest we forget", eh? Peh! This is a spit on the graves of people who had to die for no good reason and I daresay the people who did their damnest to free 'em.

Oh. My. God.

What is this? Has the world gone insane?
There seems to be a trend these days that i will call "Teach the controversy" after the name for the application of this principal to intelligent design.
People these days seem to have lost all persepctive on what is fact and what is opinion and which one is more proper in the context of a goddamn classroom where kids are supposed to *learn*.
If you ask me this is even more baffling than intelligent design, at least evolution is a rather strange theory that has a lot of rather diffuse evidence from a lot of rather abstract fields. The Holocaust happened withing living memory! There are mass graves! There are actual documents written by real live Nazis! Holocaust denial is just pure anti-semitisim but just because these people are muslims they let it slide.
Bah! Now, I'm all for senistivity but Islam as it seems to be being practised these days is a total crock as far as I'm concerned. These people need some humility, seriously.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Isn't it a crime in soem countries to actually deny that the holocaust took place? I know for a fact its a law in Germany, and to be quit frank if anyone, no matter what their religion, said to me that the holocaust never took place I would view that person as something beneath the lowest vermin. The crusades, the slave trade, and its subsequent abololishion, and the holocoast are all very important historical lessons, the crusades and the slave trade and its abooishion in particular are of extreme significance for British students as iti teaches them about important moments in our history.

Holocaust denial is definatley a crime in germany, and as far as I know Germany want it illegal everywhere else in europe - a sentiment I wholly approve of. The phrase "Lest we forget" was coined for a reason. Lest we forget the sacrifices our grandfathers made to keep us from falling into the claws of a crazed lunatic bent on corrupting the world with his "vision". Lest we forget how many had to die to show us how far the human race can fall when pursuing it's own agendas. Lest we forget the crimes committed and in doing so doom ourselves to repeat them.

But of course, if crazy uncle allah says no, then that's it then, isn't it?

No, because rich uncle Abraham will kick of a huge fuss, and I think far more people will be sympathetic to his side, as the Jewish religion has given Europe very little trouble and has done a fair bit for the community, then I think the vast majority will side with what they see as a sober, low-key religion as opposed to what they conceive as a bunch of ungrateful fanatics who want to destroy everything they hold dear. While I know many Muslims aren't like that there is a disturbing large and vocal amount who do have this opinion.

It annoys me that we have to constantly cater to Islam's needs in Britain. I respect Muslims who come to this country, work and intergrate with whites. They do not 'steal jobs away' they earn them, like everyone else. What annoys me is those who come to our country, live in a Muslim only area, eat only Muslim food, carry on Muslim traditions, go to a Muslim-only school, then have a tantrum when we don't change our society to match the views of a Bearded Camel Merchnat who has been dead more than a thousand years.

What would happen if I opened a "Whites-only school?", I would be a despicable Racist. If I opened, however, an Asian-only school, this is apparently fine. This Stupid Political Correctness Double Standrad annoys me to the point of insanity: My sister was watching TV the other day, and I looked at the presenters of the show. An Asian, a Black, an Arab, an Oriental, A Latino....where was the white Caucasian? No-where to be seen.

There are white only schools they're called Catholic or Protestant faith schools, like Asians only schools they use religion to get around racial accusations, however the problem is that while most Christians and Jews no longer see any need to religiously indoctrinate our children, Muslim parents still do.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner.


Also one of Australia's supermarket chains, Coles, has started calling Hot Cross Buns "Easter Buns."

Why hot cross buns is probably less offensive seeing Easter is the name of the religious Holiday Hot Cross whats that nothing sure the cross represents the crucifix but really it's not like it looks like a crucifix on the bun looks like a white plus sign.

Though I quite honestly despise religion as a whole, the entire thing of replacing the given event's name with "Holiday", I feel is a passionless, faceless act of complete and utter spineless cowardice. I mean, the events have a name, trying to tiptoe around them because someone felt people having some kind of celebration was offensive is just kowtowing to the slow but constant degradation of passion our culture is having.

I remember watching a morning tv show about a year ago, the kind where they have guests and do cooking and sell you stuff from infomercials. Anyway it was a friday during lent, and they were cooking something with wine in it. Of course they have a glass of wine as well, and the woman goes, "wait, are we allowed to have wine on friday?" Now, if you can't even remember that then obviously Christianity means nothing to you, so stop pretending it does!

The stupidest thing about modern religion -

Well, for one thing, Christmas. I'm not saying I hate Christmas, but, it's like, Jesus died. But who cares, we get presents! In fact, most people I know say that going to church is the only part about Christmas they hate. This is the same with every religious holiday.

I am officially (but I don't consider myself as) a catholic Christian. This means we get both First Communion (or Eucharist) and then Confirmation a couple of years later. Both of these times people usually have some kind of house party afterwards to celebrate and EVERYONE gives them money, a lot of money. And guess what, the least favourite part of this occasion - the event itself!

Seriously, maybe they should make church less boring or something.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

But the less boring alternative to christianity are those awful Mega-churches they have in the states which are largely full of certifiable rapture-ready glossolaliac nutters. Or theres that manly church thing i saw something about through stumbleupon where they have big screens with american football and they talk about beer and porno ( I can only assume they still frown upon it, but you never know).
