The fast is supposed to be from food, liquids, tobacco and sex. So eat, drink, smoke ‘em if you got ‘em, and...you know...if you got ‘em.

After their month of prayer and fasting they emerge with a renewed compassion for their fellow man, regardless of his faith, and a determination to work for peace, and the elimination of hatred, anger and violence.

HA HA! I was talking about Catholic monks and nuns.

Yes, I distinctly remember Ramadan. That was usually the time we’d postpone any impending war against Arabs, Muslims out of respect for their holiday month. I mean, these savages are out to slaughter you and you, you, stupid, naive dhimmi, will postpone the war out of respect to them.

Political Correctness is a b*tch.

When we were on cruise this spring, my wife and I attended a Bible study. At the end of the study, we gathered up some Bibles that had been borrowed from the cruise ship. I returned them to one of the cruise staff who looked Indonesian. He said that he was Muslim and couldn’t touch the Bibles and showed me where the Bibles went. Odd superstition. What silliness.
