Oh, come on now! They want credibility, and they parade with a sign saying...

No, it's better if you see it for yourselves...
The photo in this article says it all.

What we have here is a case of profound moral debasement trying to masquerade as spiritual elevation. They are not "saints," they are ghouls(1), and it is obvious to anyone who has the facts.

Odd isn't it, that in this age if instant communication, the standard of truth seems so much harder to maintain. So it isn't surprising that most people who only have access to MSM are often confused. What is really encouraging though, is that there are so many who are able to cut through the B.S. I'm just not sure if there are enough of them yet.

On a more comic note:

"One of the pretexts for the Jakarta riot was the inclusion of Mohammed in the frieze depicting "lawgivers" on the U.S. Supreme Court building:
Reuters news agency said the protesters were angered over the depiction of Muhammad in a frieze that adorns the facade of the U.S. Supreme Court.
That depiction is, of course, complimentary--Mohammed is included along with Moses, Confucius, etc.--and has been there since 1935. The depiction of Mohammed on the Supreme Court building was mildly criticized by CAIR earlier this month; so far the Supreme Court has refused to alter the frieze. I suspect, though, that if the Court should some day decide to remove Mohammed from his position of honor among those who have promoted the resolution of conflict through law rather than violence, very few Americans would object."

Well, at least one can say that they are sincere in the belief that their evil is "good". The problem is that not enough of us have realized how dead wrong they are, or how dedicated to proving it.
(1) ghoul ( gūl ) n.
a - "One who delights in the revolting, morbid, or loathsome."...,
b - "A perversely bad, cruel, or wicked person"....,
c - "The Arabian ghoul taken from the original Persian is a desert-dwelling, shapeshifting demon that can assume the guise of an animal, especially a hy├Žna. It lures unwary travellers into the desert wastes to slay and devour them."
Oh, you mean like the "good" "moderate" Muslims of CAIR who try to lure us into complacency so we can be more easily defeated? Or, perhaps it's like those Islamists who say that now, when the hunger-crazed beast is in a feeding-frenzy, is the best time to "tame" it by having a "dialogue" with it?
