Subject: Canadian tolerance suggestion...
Jiggs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in Ontario, says, "I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in Toronto. I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs. Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance. That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque; thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque."
We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy," and the other, a topless bar, would be called "You Mecca Me Hot."
Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called "Iraq of Ribs."
Across the street there could be a lingerie store called "Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret," with sexy mannequins in the window modelling the goods.
Next door to the lingerie shop there would be room for an adult sex toy shop, "Koranal Knowledge," its name in flashing neon lights.
On the other side a liquor store called "Morehammered."
All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they demand of us.
Yes we should promote tolerance, and you can do your part by passing this on.
And if you are not laughing or smiling at this point... It is either past your bedtime, or it's midnight at the oasis and time to put your camel to bed!
I'm not laughing ... mostly because I know that the tolerance most religions want is one-sided, and that moderate muslims would at least be offended at the suggestions made in the piece above, where the more radical types would be calling for fatwas and jihad against the infidels for even suggesting such a thing.
It is for this reason that I am not a great fan of tolerance as a general principle ... Unless It Is UNIVERSALLY PRACTICED.
I thought it hit the nail right on the head and was hillarious!
