I thought I should let you know.

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes
in response to reader comment: Western Culture or Islam? Islam of course

I thought that you should know that here in the West we are not looking for anyone to fill the position of moral police to go around terrorizing women because legs or arms or elbows or shoulders or feet or toes or ears or noses are showing. And we are not looking for anyone to go around terrorizing pregnant women demanding to see their marriage certificates. And we are not interested in anyone seeking to go around with a knife or scissors to terrorize women because they are wearing pants.

We are also not looking for anyone to operated a crane to hoist up the body of women or men because they broke a morality law and the town must see their shame. And we are not looking for anyone to dig a hole to put a woman so that we can stone her because someone said that she broke a morality law. We are also not looking for someone to cut off anyones head because they do not belong to the religion we say they should belong to. We are also not looking for teacher to tell our children that they should kill themselves or murder others so that they can become martyrs.

I know that you think that the West is evil without morals but I wanted to let you know that we do not have any job openings for anyone who wants to fill the position of the moral police to terrorize our people. I hope this is clear to you.
