Proud Moments in Religious Thought and Action

Muslims urged to refuse 'un-Islamic' vaccinations

LONDON - A leading Islamic doctor is urging British Muslims not to vaccinate their children against diseases such as measles, mumps, and rubella because they contain substances making them unlawful for Muslims to take.

Dr Abdul Majid Katme, head of the Islamic Medical Association, says almost all vaccines contain un-Islamic "haram" derivatives of animal or human tissue, and that Muslim parents are better off letting childrens' immune systems develop on their own.

Dr Katme, an NHS psychiatrist, said: "If you breastfeed your child for two years - as the Koran says - and you eat Koranic food like olives and black seed, and you do ablution each time you pray, then you will have a strong defence system."

Sometimes, he looks right into you. Right into your eyes. You know the thing about him, he's got... lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be livin'. Until he bites ya and those black eyes roll over white. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the ocean turns red and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' they all come in and rip you to pieces.

More Love over backgammon

What do we have here? Why it's Lyle Talbot getting ready to put the moves on Rosemary Ames. Classy. Strangely I don't see any highball glasses (or 8-ball glasses as they're known in Mass.) It's still early in the game, but it looks like Talbot's kicking ass. Why he'd want to throw the game before it's over is a mystery. Maybe Rosemary Ames gets all pissed off when she loses, so he's sacrificing the win for greater glory. That kind of decision making will get you killed in Vegas buddy.

backgammon in love

Poor Oswald Jacoby. Sure, he was largely responsible for the backgammon boom of the 70s. So much so, that his picture adorned the game box:

But then, the old man-young boy bonding in a library just wasn't deemed sexy enough.* Or at least not the right type of sexy. So they repackaged it like this:

I can't tell if that guy's hand is on the chair or her thigh, but there's no mistaking the gleam in his eye. However he is losing the game by a huge amount, so perhaps he's just trying to change the subject from backgammon. Also of note: The board and pieces pictured have gotten way crappier.

* For Republican Congressmen, Catholic priests, and gay-hatin', meth-snortin', evangelical con-men it's just the RIGHT kind of sexy.

Watch out Orhan Pamuk, 50-Cent be writin' all up in this bitch

Here is a phrase I never thought I would ever see in print:

"New York Times best-selling author 50-Cent"

What's impressive is the fact that he's putting out three books at once. He's like the J.R.R. Tolkien of the ghetto. And like Tolkien, he's been shot nine times and used to sell drugs.

Hollywood Minute Starring Corky Romano

What I learned from Chris Kattan who was holding a meeting on his cell phone while rubbing his belly under his shirt standing outside of the parking lot of the post office on Sunset and Las Palmas this afternoon.

"MTV's gonna do it up big! ...Yeah, it's gonna be big, on MTV and it's gonna be fun - Well, maybe not fun, but, you know."

Yeah, we know. Maybe not fun, but a paycheck at least. I can't imagine the residuals from Monkeybone are making a lot of car payments these days.

New Year Tribute to Our Troops!

Sure it's tough fighting a war that's undefined, was started for no legitimate reason and has now spiraled into a civil war in which Americans are little more than targets, but when you look back at what the Greatest Genereation faced in war, I'd say our boys could be doing a lot worse.

For example, the blazing heat in Iraq means that our heros (in this case, it appears to be the Nazis) won't have to fight frozen Ice Vikings with their Ice Axes riding Ice Horses.
Any God-Fearing Christian soul would tell you that the above fight stimply could not have ever happened.
