‘The Fist of the Devil’


Apparently, we Muslims share this week’s guilty seat with gays and abortionists, as the idiots who are trying to shut down the last abortion clinic in the state of Mississippi demonstrate:

Flip Benham was going to burn a Koran at Mississippi’s state Capitol on July 18 but he couldn’t get a fire permit. The blaze was to be the culmination of an antiabortion rally that Benham, director of Operation Save America, billed as an “ecclesiastical court.” His attack on Islam might seem like a non sequitur, but to Benham, it made perfect sense. “Islam is the same thing as abortion and homosexuality,” he said. “It’s the black-colored glove covering the same fist, which is the fist of the devil.” Benham had T-shirts made up, black with white lettering, proclaiming, “Homosexuality Is Sin! Islam Is a Lie! Abortion Is Murder! Some Issues Are Just Black and White!”

I’m not sure if I should laugh or cry.
