The Saudis don't escape to Bahrain as much now because of the ongoing protests (which are being ignored by the media) so they come to the UAE instead, driving like clueless, drunk fuckwits in the biggest 4x4 they could get. Then there's the actual animals;

The livestock markets and surrounding streets are clogged up with office workers trying to handle uncooperative goats and smaller sacrifices, if that's anything to go by, attempting kill the things must be chaos. The government is actually asking them not to consume animals they've killed at home because of the risk of contamination so the animal's pain during the amateur butchery is now completely pointless.

I think that's an interesting sight. Thank the god(s) most of the world has moved beyond it. But you can imagine what ancient Jerusalem was like, with the entire city built of the business of year round sacrificing to Yahweh with all those animals and everything it meant to keep that industry alive and going. It is one of my theory that THAT is why Yeshua ben Josef was executed when he attempted to disrupt it.

Or, maybe Mullah man's moved to meet the Moors in Mecca, so he could hear karma kow moo and mobilize moralizing mongooses.

Karma Kow.. that's oddly familiar to me...

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

RE: Ask a Muslim [split from introductions]
For the few muslim friends I have, they seem to pride themselves on the fact that they are open minded when it comes to science.

Today, one of my muslim friends tells me that they think gay people are unnatural, and that animals in nature do not demonstrate homosexuality.

Despite the overwhelming amount of empirical evidence to support otherwise, why are muslims so damned stubborn about this?

Self imposed ignorance is my guess.


But then again, since when has evidence been on the religious' "Things to acknowledge and put before what is demonstrably false." list.

Cuz, just like the fundie Christians, their Moral Theology is built on "natural law". If it *is* natural, it's a crack in the foundation. They get that. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/200...122106.htm

RE: Ask a Muslim [split from introductions]
I think people confuse the words "Natural" and "Common" - things in nature which are natural do not always commonly occur.
