Senior Saudi Muslim Cleric Calls for Killing of “Tweeter” Who Insulted Muhammed

13 February, 2012

What can I say?  The religion of piss and vinegar in action:

Reprieve unlikely for Saudi writer after cleric backs death sentence
Top Muslim scholar says any one who insults Prophet should be killed

A senior Saudi Muslim cleric indicated on Monday that a local young man who offended Prophet Mohammed [piss be upon him] and fled the Gulf kingdom would be executed after his repatriation from Malaysia.

Sheikh Saleh bin Fowzan Al Fowzan, a member of the 7-man supreme committee of scholars in Saudi Arabia, said it has been established in Islam that any one who insults God or the Prophet should be killed.

“Repenting will not work…any man who insults [Allah] or our Prophet [piss be upon him] should be killed,” he said, quoted by Saudi newspapers.

Such a tolerant religion…  /sarcasm

“But we should first verify that this man (Hamza Kashgari) did insult Prophet Mohammed in his article on Twitter…if verified, then he must be killed……many scholars and people are now demanding his execution.”

Kashgari, 23, fled Saudi Arabia to Malaysia last week after King Abdullah ordered him arrested and punished for writing an article on Twitter deemed by Saudi Moslem scholars as abusive of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).

He was later reported arrested by Malaysian authorities at Kuala Lumpur airport and western news reports said on Sunday he would be repatriated.

One Saudi daily said on Sunday Kashgari was heading for New Zealand to seek asylum before his arrest.

Arizona: Bill Introduced Targeting Teachers with Dirty Mouths

13 February, 2012

So, this is what it has finally come to?  Passing laws to rein in immature, Libtarded teachers who don’t understand why parents are freaking out when little Johnny comes home home from school with a whole new set of vocabulary “skills.”

Might I suggest immature teachers buy  some Orbit gum?

Bill aims to censor Arizona teachers’ speech
Group wants them to comply with FCC

Arizona’s teachers better watch their mouths.

A group of Republican state lawmakers is backing legislation that would require teachers to limit their speech to words that comply with Federal Communications Commission regulations on what can be said on TV or radio.

[...]

Personally, I wouldn’t use the FCC as a benchmark.  After all, the FCC doesn’t appear to have an official list of obscene words.  Instead, they go by usage in context.  That’s fairly nebulous, if you ask me, and allows my four-year-old daughter to overhear such lovely words as, “bitch,” “damn,” “hell,” and a few others that I don’t approve of—even in the commercials! 

Senate Bill 1467, sponsored by Sen. Lori Klein, R-Anthem, establishes penalties for anyone teaching in a public school who violates the FCC standards. Penalties range from a one-week suspension for a first offense to being fired for a third offense.

Klein said the bill stems from constituent complaints about teachers in local high schools using inappropriate language in front of students.

“Students are young and impressionable and teachers should not be using four-letter words in the classroom,” Klein said.

[...]

Senate Minority Leader David Schapira, D-Tempe, a former high-school teacher and current Tempe Union High School District Governing Board member, said he understands the concern but not the proposed solution.

“In K-12 classrooms, teachers shouldn’t be using those words with their students,” he said. “But the school districts should implement the policies.”

Exactly!

Florida: Pastor’s Daughter in Critical Condition After Accidental Church Shooting

13 February, 2012

I don’t know why, but I felt led by the Spirit to post this story even though I normally don’t post stories about accidental shootings.

First and foremost, I offer up my prayers for Hannah Kelley and her family.

Secondly, I think this is one of those “teachable moments” that we all can learn from when it comes to guns; ALWAYS check for a chambered round when dealing with semi-automatic handguns!  This is one of the primary reasons I recommend a revolver instead of a semi-automatic for novice gun owners.

As for carrying a gun in church, I’ve got no problem with that.  However, church is probably not best the place to show off your gun:

WTSP – Written by – Althea Paul

LEALMAN, Fla. — A Bay area church congregation is rallying together in prayer for their pastor’s daughter. The young woman was accidentally shot Sunday at Grace Connection Church along 56th Avenue North in unincorporated St. Petersburg.

Hannah Kelley, 20 years old, remains in critical condition at Bayfront Medical Center. According to officials with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office, church member Moises Zambrana was showing a 9mm handgun to two young men in a closet near the recreational area. Detectives say one of the men, who is Kelley’s boyfriend, was interested in getting a gun. While Zambrana was showing him the safety features, authorities say the gun went off. The bullet went through the wall, and hit Kelley in the head.

According to authorities, Zambrana did take out the magazine clip, but a bullet was still in the chamber.

Church members are now praying that Kelley will pull through.

“There is a big level of concern ’cause she may or may not survive. But we’re all praying for her and, right now, I guess that’s the best we can do,” said church member Tony Diehl.

Authorities say Zambrana does have a permit to carry his gun and did not break any laws. So far, no charges have been filed.
