Because he didn’t disparage Islam.

Hey, since I’m a Christian, does this give me carte blanche to attack a consulate?

Only if a disparaging video sets you off. Then it’s OK.

I see a fatwa in Colm Toibin’s future and maybe a riot in Cairo or Benghazi. What? Wait….never mind.

Meh.

On an interesting note I’m watching this fool Peter Popoff on the TV right now (it’s almost 4am, what else is on). He reminds me of Obama. Promising poor people and minorities great gifts based on zero work and scamming them in the process. There’s a lot of stupid in this world it seems.

Expect to see this work of fiction as a mini-series on one of the Lame Stream Media Networks. Maybe they can get some leftist whore like Eva Longoria to play the title role.

I think the image of Mary over the centuries as a weak figure being held up by John under the cross are erroneous. She was strong. She probably held up John. The apostles were kinda weak and ran from the Garden, the Cross, and even denied Jesus. This book seems to portray Mary as messed up. But her words were so wise:”Do whatever He tells you.”

Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you’ve delivered, will soon deliver you.

Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God.

The blind will see, the deaf will hear and the dead will live again.
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb.

Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you’re holding is the great I am.

She had to be tough for sure.
