Got an e-mail from my best friend yesterday about he receiving the package I sent him through the mail: as he likes Wolves, I always send him a wolf calendar for Xmas. As the Royal Mail have always ensured he gets such - even with the huge increase in letters/cards/parcels etc at this time of the year - I don't need to worry about what I send to him getting to him late or not at all. 'Faith'? What's that?
He also mentioned how he'd watched & enjoyed the 2nd episode of Vivienne Medrano's animated series on Youtube; his favourite character in that is Loona the Goth wolf. And - because of the pandemic - he had to put on hold the gaming sessions he hosts for his friends: including "Vampire: The Masquerade" and "Call of Cthulhu"; just two of what he has in his huge RPG collection. Oh, that animated series on YT? "Helluva Boss".
He says he can't wait for the 3rd episode of that series set in Hell. That (and along with "Werewolf: The Apocalypse" included in said gaming sessions) proves he has good taste in subject matter to be interested in: certainly after he retired from being an admin. in the Ministry of Defence; previously a writer for "Jane's Defence Weekly". He likes military history; very pleased was he with the book I gave him when I stayed at his place last year: the Osprey 'X-Planes' one on the North American XB-70 Valkyrie I ordered from Amazon, as he was previously with the Osprey book on the BAC TSR-2 I gave him, as that's his all-time favourite plane & he likes books about such. They go nicely in his collection, along with the ultra-rare Airfix TSR-2 kit he has: the "Stratos 4" edition, no less.
...oh, and he just happens to be a long-time Church of England Christian.
Please excuse the above non-sequitur, o mods/admin of FSTDT. Or not. Because at least the above is infinitely less so than some... thing that strayed so far off the subject at hand - which at least others were adhering to before sa(i)d some... thing decided to put it's 20p's worth in: which turned out to be barely worth tuppence ha'penny. JackTheSad indeed if it's reduced to Attention Whoring in this way.
But then, we should expect nothing less from Billy Nomates.
Like yours truly, my best friend is a fan of all things satirical: Tom Lehrer, "Private Eye" magazine, "Not The Nine O'clock News": including the 'Life of Monty Python' sketch, and of course Monty Python.
Including "Life of Brian".
He's secure in his faith: to the extent that he's said that God has a sense of humour too, thus he wouldn't be so thin-skinned as to be even remotely 'offended' by things that those who are butthurt about such would be. [/Charlie Hebdo]
Fundie 'Faith' is what's deserving of savage satire: it's what FSTDT is all about.
Someone didn't get that memo.
'Muh-ham-mad'. Ham: as in pork.
Hey, Wahhabi clerics: your 'Prophet' is Haram.
How can certain people be 'Enemies of Ally' if fundies who worship such don't know what 'Muh' actually looked like...?!
People taking the piss out of another prophet, 'Isa: right here in Britain.
Which has a state religion, the Church of England: led by Queen Elizabeth II.
So Britain has a woman as it's monarch; yeah, what a shocker! [/Doug Piranha-levels of sarcasm] And as it has the freedom of Blasphemy in this not-so 'Secular' country after all (PROTIP: Catholic Ireland having a referendum a few years ago which destroyed the Blasphemy law there) and nothing has happened to those who satirise it's religious figures, thus (check one)
[ ] Insha'Allah: Which means he doesn't mind such in the slightest, thus certain clerics & fundies never had the right to think the way they do about so-called 'Blasphemy' against 'Ally' & 'Muh' in the first place, therefore they only have the right to stop being so membrane-skinned and deal with it
[ ] The phrase 'Blasphemy is a victimless crime' exists for an extremely good reason: thus your 'Al' never existed in the first place, ergo fundie 'Faith' sounds just like FAIL
Choose wisely, o Wahhabi clerics.
It's why we choose to be a Democratic country based on Rule of Law.
And not a Theocracy based on Sharia.
Just ask a certain Mayor of London.
