People Treated Badly by Miz Pink

I forget how hard it is to be Christian because it’s so easy to be Muslim

– Aasif Mandvi, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”

I’m a little behind in my viewing of Jonny Stewart (and my other honey-bunn…Stevie Colbert) but when I saw the segment in which the quote above took place, it made me laugh. It was in response to Brit Hume complaining about how Christians get crap the minute they spout their view (after he basically siad on air that Tiger Woods should find Jesus and repent and oh by the way Buddhism is a substandard faith.).

Now, I agree with Aasif and Jon at the juxtaposition of Christianity and Muslim faith here but I also disagree.

Ya see, it is true that is ain’t easy being Muslim these days especiallly here in the old U.S. of A. You get profiled and passengers look at you funny if you LOOK Muslim…even if yer just a secular Arab or an African or what have ya. Muslims as a whole get blamed for the evils of a select group and their religion is painted by many conservative frothy mouth types as being inherently violent. So yeah it ain’t easy being muslim.

On the other hand there is some truth to Brit Hume’s complain too. No Chrisitians don’t get persecuted and profiled but people do make big judgements if you ID yourself as Chrisitian or God forbid mention Jesus as anythin but just a cool guy with neato philosophies. If he’s your savior then you must be a kook. I have had peopel entirely revise their opinions of me at work after months upon months of knowing me and shun me because I mentioned in passing that I follow Jesus as my savior. They act like they know my whole personality and motives and secret plans (apparently to convert them) in ways they never to do to someone who IDs as a Jew or a Witch or a Hindi.

No its true that no one is going to strip search me for being Chrisitian in this country but it isn’t as easy being a Christian as a lot of non Christian types would like to believe.

Bend Over Traveler by Miz Pink

So, retired Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney of the U.S. Air Force says we oughtta strip search every Muslim dude between the ages of 18 and 28 who wants to get onto an airplane or off of one in the United States.



First off I think that someone needs to get the good general a subscription to NudeGayBlackMen.com or something because given that the last muslim who tried to do something on a plane looked like Joe-average Black guy to me, THAT’S who would get the latex glove up the butt treatment. I think the general just likes the idea of naked young dark skinned men a bit too much.

Second on the list of concerns: Just how do we determine who is Muslim, general?

Third the chances of being blown up on a plane by a terrorists are about as slim as winning the lotto so why the hell do we need to make this SUCH a big deal that we just blanket strip search thousands upon thousands of air travelers for no other reason than there religious beliefs?

Fourth how many people would be inspired to become terrorists as we treat everyone in their religion like animals?

Fail, general. Big fat fail.

Someone needs to fish something out of your butt it seems.
