the face of mohammed on a taco shell?

Listen,

Does the Vatican shut down every IHOP or Taco Bell every time some wacko sees the face of Jesus or Mary on a piece of French toast or a taco shell? Could you imagine if it went one extreme way or the other with the Church either closing these locals or declaring the deep fryer or griddle shrine worthy of veneration?

What's going to happen when someone accuses Mc Donalds soft serve of printing out some squiggle preceived as anti Islam?Where are the Islamic intellectuals here? Their people need them badly! the beauty of Islam needs them!

This "offense is in the eye of the beholder" syndrome that we now find in our American campus "PCism' and fundamentalist Islam are two sides of the same coin that is bringing us to our knees!

I'm not lovin' it!
