Pulp friction, shall we say?

We've got to stop them. Sure, it's only juice they're after now, but then what? Soon, they'll want to kill my coffee. Then it'll be my chocolate milk. After that, who knows? They'll take my sweet tea when they pry it out of my cold, dead hands!
Seriously, photos like these need to be posted all over the internet. Might laughter take some of the wind out of their sails?

You know, ORD, that's a really nice thought, but methinks their severe lack of a sense of humor would have just the opposite effect.

If they were not so belligerent, those Muslims could be quite funny.

See, this just isn't fair. How would it look if a white man was out on the street holding a sign that read, "DEATH TO MUSLINS"?

Maybe they could save time, money and some embarrasment if they would have a shit load of signs already made up that read:
That way they could go with their mood of the day. Otherwise they could just shut the fuck up and go home and suck on their hookas!!!

Said Tyler: "How would it look if a white man was out on the street holding a sign that read, 'DEATH TO MUSLINS'"?
That would depend. Ordinarily, we'd say it was an ordinary jerk, stupid variety. Now, if he was protesting outside a cotton mill, it might be a different story.
Sorry, I just couldn't resist...

What does this bigot have against juice anyway? I love my Sunkist in the morning ...

Isn't he just expressing the opinion that O. J. Simpson's recent sentencing was not severe enough?

All please note the direct correlation between ignorance and religious fervor.

Ya beat me to it Axman. My first thought was, he's protesting OJ in some way?
at December 30, 2008 2:29 PM
Alternatively, he's got a gripe with the Florida Orange Growers concern, that or he's protesting Ocean Spray say for their use of high fructose corn syrup instead of sugar.

Rad- that is ALMOST unbelievable.

I thought this was so funny, I snickered about it all morning. THEN I looked at the picture more closely, and realized he had penciled in the word 'ZIONIST' in parentheses above 'juice.' So there's ZIONIST juice!?!? I wish they'd mark at the grocery store which oranges and grapes were zionist, in case they have more calories. Heaven help us all - jihad against breakfast.

I believe it was in America Alone that Mark Steyn revealed that the average age of Palestinians in Gaza is 15 years old. Given that age and given the lack of proper education, it's not surprising that the Juice man here exists. My guess is that if he was quizzed about some simple historical facts he'd reveal himself further to not be the sharpest knife in the drawer.

Thanks Radwaste for reminding me why I gave up Catholicism when I was a teenager. What a bunch of whackjobs ...

People of the Book, huh? I'm guessing not.

Granted death threats and claims of being victims of a hate crime are extreme overreactions, what that guy did was obnoxious, and he was looking to incite an extreme response. Given his obvious agenda, I don't believe that he just wanted to show the wafer to a curious friend. Your blogger thinks it's just frakkin' cracker (and so do I, despite my Catholic upbringing), and that's why he doesn't attend mass and try to obtain one, which is fine. You can think religious practices are ridiculous, but it is disrespectful to take part in them with the intention of making a scene, which is what Webster Cooke did.

"...what that guy did was obnoxious, and he was looking to incite an extreme response."
Thank you so much for presuming guilt on the part of Mr. Cook. I am sure that he attended services regularly, then, upon being asked what communion was by his friend, realized the silliness of it all immediately, and then hatched the idea that he should not only bring the wafer back to his seat to display it, he should telepathically force people near the altar to lay hands upon him and scare him from the chapel. Death threats are highly desirable, too.
The priest should have uttered the de-consecration spell as soon as Mr. Cook was seen not to be vigorously masticating Jesus. He could have waved his wand - sorry, crucifix - backwards, easily. This would have transformed the wafer back into ordinary foodstuffs, foiling the kidnapping without the need for the physical assault of Mr. Cook there in the chapel.
Clearly, I'm calling your assertion nonsense. Now, feel free to call anything contrary to following the instructions of the clergy anything you want.
If you have a favorite deity - and I'm saying this because your idea is different from mine, given a look at Adherents.com - wouldn't a law of (his) look like the Law of Gravity? Hey, go ahead, break that one! All the others, they're just our laws. We might say they're from On High somewhere, but when we do, we're lying.
at December 30, 2008 7:50 PM
Sorry, how is Adherents.com relevant? I agree that the hostage claims are ridiculous and the church folks are irrational and stupid in their response, which I know gives you satisfaction. But based on the article linked in that blog, I see a guy with an agenda.

Rad- I'm guessing the Catholic's are in a panic over being called to the carpet. But I'm cynical by nature...
I almost feel bad about the time a few summers back when I let my St Bernard drink from the Holy Water...

I like the look on the face of Mr. Reasonable, reaching for the sign -- "Er, Ahmed, let's spruce up the sign a bit before the news crews get here, whaddya say?".

Said Tyler, "So, are you correcting my spelling or did you get the joke?"
Well yes, I got the joke. That's why I brought up the cotton mill. You know, muslin, cotton, ha-ha. Not that my response was actually, well, funny. I wish I'd thought of the obvious O.J. connection.
Tangentially related item: In one of his Elvis Cole mysteries, Robert Crais has his hero driving through the Deep South, listening to some radio preacher ranting on about the "Muslins." Trying to remember the title of the book.

You just wait till your dog starts performing miracles, mister! He'll start turning water into beefsticks, and THEN what will you do?

Those holy water jugs look an awful lot like Turkey Fryers.
First they came for the half and half, but I drink my coffee black...

Whether juice is Zionist or not, it doesn't affect me anymore. I've switched to eating oranges in the morning.
at December 31, 2008 7:54 PM
Sam -- Adherents.com lets you see, immediately, that people, even Christians, cannot decide who, what or how to worship.
It's arbitrary, as in "made up".
at January 1, 2009 6:19 AM
If you're born to a Muslim family, you're Muslim and Allah is it. Christian parents? You're for Jesus. And so on. You're just a different flavor of lazily irrational.
