See the cross? See it? Why are you laughing?
Warning! Your salad could be making you into an Infidel! "Salafist group warns tomatoes are 'Christian,' by Angie Nassar for NowLebanon.com, June 12 (thanks to Lachlan)
...A Salafist group called the Popular Egyptian Islamic Association has come under fire after sending out a warning on Facebook urging its followers not to eat tomatoes because the vegetable (or fruit) is a Christian food. The group posted a photo on its page of a tomato - which appears to reveal the shape of a cross after being cut in half along with the message: Eating tomatoes is forbidden because they are Christian. [The tomato] praises the cross instead of Allah and says that Allah is three (a reference to the Trinity).
[God help us]. I implore you to spread this photo because there is a sister from Palestine who saw the prophet of Allah [Mohammad] in a vision and he was crying, warning his nation against eating them [tomatoes]. If you dont spread this [message], know that it is the devil who stopped you.
Predictably, Facebook users expressed outrage over the post, which prompted the group to clarify its stance on the controversy with the update, We didnt say you cant eat tomatoes. We said dont cut it in [such a way that reveals] the cross shape....
Are you referring to the belief that the lowly tomato was thought to be Eve’s, then Adam’s, apple from the the Garden of Eden?
What’s next, lettuce? Send them a BLT (Bacon Lettuce Tomato) sandwich.
Nine out of ten vampires would agree.
Just wait until one of them finds the image of the Virgin Mary in a lamb haunch.
“It looks like a Maltese cross anyway.”
Ooooooh, that makes it even more of an insidious Infidel plot! This imam may be on to something!
“...the Maltese Cross. The cross is eight-pointed and has the form of four “V”-shaped elements joined together at their tips, so that each arm has two points. Its design is based on crosses used since the First Crusade.”
post other foods with a cross, here’s a t-bone steak
LOL, NEIN! Its an Iron Cross. What we have here is a Religion going beyond the fringe of lunacy. IGNORANCE supreme.
Thanks SJackson. What a bunch of morons they are.
Water is Christian too, and should be avoided at all cost!
Yes , this could get real good ,just think of the things we could Christianize( is that a word )
Actually, tomatos are pagan - even worse!
They came from the Aztecs, did they not?
Think I’ll make a BLT...with cross tomatoes, bacon, and toast with the image of Jesus on it.
Call it an “infidel sandwich”.
Wonder what they do when they come to a crossroad.
That's a real "chicken or the egg" quandary, isn't it? Are they "stuck in the 3rd Century" because they think "that way," or do they think "that way" because they're "stuck in the 3rd Century?"
Not to put too fine a point on it, I think the "3rd Century" analogy is giving them way too much credit, being far too generous.
They are actually stuck somewhere between "homo erectus" and "Neanderthal," possibly "Cro Magnon." Actual Stone Age cave-men, and I'm not trying to be glib or cute. These dismal abysmals have no place in modern society, and the world as it exists today cannot afford to continue to pat them on the head and coddle them for too much longer.
Doing so will absolutely result in a massive, brutal global conflagration, and we'll have only our spineless "political correctness" to blame.
Well, if you can’t eat bacon and you can’t eat tomatoes, what can you eat? Is lettuce halal?
I got to develop a "Pig roll" pastry (like a jellyroll) which you must slice properly, otherwise it reveals an image of mohamed...
