It’s about midway through the Islamic season of Ramadan, an annual period of fasting and reflection for Muslims. Around the world, millions of Muslims are fasting, praying, reading the Qur’an, and striving for purity in thought and deed.

Some good ideas here. Imagine if a spiritual revival from the Holy Spirit were to occur in the Muslims in America.

Pork rinds!

Absolutely delicious, but... is it my imagination or is it becoming more and more difficult to find ‘em at the local grocery...?

This is very thoughtful, I must reciprocate by putting together a list of things Muslims should do during Lent. Although I expect that a few of you are already starting to do that...

Learn more about Islam?

Okay, Islam is a Satanic cult. When Mohammed thought he was recieving the word of God from the angel Gabriel he was in fact receiving the word of the devil, Satan himself. How else do explain some of the details in the Quran as practiced by Muslims through the centuries?

It’s really very self-explanatory.

Never liked Pork Rinds. Until I went to a place in Atlanta that makes fresh, deep-fried pork rinds, or Bacon Puffs as my friend calls them.

Still cannot stand the ones you get in stores, but I can easily go through multiple baskets of those Bacon Puffs!

Look for “chicharrones.” Since salsa passed ketchup as #1 condiment in the USA, this is probably also following the trend...

Well, I thought that the point of the thread was what could Christians do. I hope that they were not suggesting that we should emulate Mohammed and his minions. Hence my original suggestion.

Flush Korans down the toilet?


I will have 20 copies on hand. I will also schedule 20 pork meals that will be consumed with great relish. The BBQ will be PMCS’d and extra propane, charcoal and plenty of alcohol on hand. Since most pork dishes produce a goodly amount of grease, what better to marinade those quo-rahns in before I flush them. Oh wait, I will need to purchase a 21st copy for toilet paper, too.

Suck pork fat, muzzies.

If you run short of pork rinds, give me a jingle and I’ll you some. We have very spicy, fairly spicy, or just plain.
All pretty good, but not as good as when we did them ourselves.

Didn’t know DNA is in urine. Biologically sterile for washing a wound, they taught us in survival school.

Guess that means if a mosque door gets p***d on in Dearborn, the police will round up the local “infidels” and subject them to mandatory urinalysis.

If in fact you wanted to post a serious article - you failed.

Read...

You do know that you can post more than 10 words in a thread, don't you?

Even posting the 4 things you mentioned in the title would have helped.

Heh, when I first saw it, as it started, I thought “Oh man...I hope this isn’t two minutes of my life I will never get back...”

Then, I thought...”Heh, it was mildly funny” and I watched it again.

It must have been the second time, because then I thought it was really funny and the song has been stuck in my head for a few weeks!

A Hog Roast is always good summer time fun.

When I was a visiting professor in Turkey, I was invited to give a faculty seminar on American political party organization. One of the questions asked of me was how do we raise money. I had to tell them that a hog roast was a very popular fund-raising practice in my county.

I get the feeling that the author has one of those ‘Coexist’ bumper stickers on his car.

It’s awfully hard to ‘Coexist’ with someone who keeps trying to kill you.
