Scottie Dogs At (Commonwealth) Games 'Disrespectful' To Muslims
The Daily Beast ^ | July 29, 2014 | Tom Skyes

Posted on 07/29/2014 9:50:36 AM PDT by C19fan

The Commonwealth Games, which opened last week in Glasgow, Scotland in the presence of the Queen, was, like all sporting events these days, ushered into existence to the accompaniment of a lavish and visually impressive opening ceremony.

But amidst the dancing mechanical giants and gay kisses, the organizers also sought to celebrate Scottishness by having each team led out by Scottie dogs wearing tartan coats embroidered with the name of the team.

Social media, predictably, fell in love with the doggies, however now political and religious leaders in Malaysia have cried foul, and are accusing the organizers of disrespect towards Muslims by forcing their teams to be led out by a dog.

What a horrible religion to hate man's best friend. Did a dog do something to Mohammad to make him not like dogs?

Moslems should be offended at every turn. In fact, they should be so offended that they go back to where they came from, so they won’t be offended anymore.

I suspect "gay kisses" were much more offensive to Muslims than some dogs, but no one wants to open that can of worms.

My female Brittany catches moles and brings them to the door and drops them at my feet unharmed. I then transport them to a nearby wood lot as they are not welcome in my lawn.

A Scottie dog named Nessie sold me my house. The little devil ran ahead of us on our tour with the realtor and jumped up on the furniture in each room as if to say, “ This is the living room and I can perch on this silk chair if I want to.” And, “This is the bedroom. The kids who live here throw their clothes on the floor, and that’s OK.”

It was difficult to come to terms with the sellers. At oone point, I told the realtor to include the dog in our next offer.

Scottie dogs BUMP.

The reporter missed the crux of this story.

The Scotties, a proud and noble breed, were incensed by having to be in close proximity to mohammedans, a group they consider to be unclean.

So they are forced to have sex with goats, which apparently are clean. LOL

Islam is a cult centered around Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Do not try to find reason within their dislike of dogs.

Do not try to find reason in their cleansing ritual in the bathroom which must be restarted if you pass gas while washing your feet or saying your prayers.

I had a big shepherd back in the 70s who frequently caught and shook squirrels and rabbits. A couple of shakes and dead.
Stopped him from offing a possum once. The possum was hurt and I built a pen for it and kept it for the winter till it healed and the weather heated a bit. Named the possum Mr Spacely. He would let me pet him after he hissed and barred his teeth... then he would let me pet him.

One story, unsubstantiated, is that when Muhammad died, his body was dug up and eaten by dogs. Therefore, he wound up as dog s**t.

I’m guessing that they really mean “gay” in its original sense of “happy” rather than the twisted version commonly in use today.

Dogs are considered ‘unclean’.
Idiots.
(yet the muzzies use their left hands as toilet paper?)
However; cats are considered clean and are permitted by the muzzies.

I think, in the end, Malaysians were offended by poop. The girl who had the dog with the Malaysia blanket was carrying him in front of the team... JUST IN CASE!!!! (Posted a pic to the thread) How many moslem majority countries are participating in this? No non-Moslem country complained...

Hindu


Christian



Even some of the Moslem countries were OK with the country being led in by a dog

So why is Malaysia so OFFENDED?

Mohammad was a desert bandit. Dogs would sound an alarm at strangers approaching.

My Professor told our class that one day, the “King” got drunk and while in the public square tried to have “relations” with a pig. this is why Muslimes don’t drink or eat pork.
