What a relief-but I have questions

Reader comment on item: The Mystical Menace of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Well then, when the Mahdi comes then the 'People of the Book" will be spared. Will the Madhi know right away that I have not read the "Book" lately? Could there perhaps be a classification of "auxilliary 'People of the Book'" that I would fall under? Should I proclaim myself as "Dhimmi" in advance of his coming so as to avoid his wrath? Should I rid my house of anything that would cause a problem: ie. the small statue of the Buddha that I have or perhaps the cows up behind my house? Would he think that I am a Hindu just because I keep a cow or two?

Pehaps I will just join a right-wing hate group and rant on and on about secularism-that should do it. To borrow from Dante, these dratted secularists should be in the "First Circle". They then would be the first to be dealt with by my new best buddy-the Mahdi.
