"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

A Muslim Woman Speaks Out About Her Right to Choose (Dedication to the Women of Mid-East Music, Part 4: Deeyah of Pakistan)

This is really eye opening. A first hand account of what it is like to be a Muslim woman who is also a successful pop performer. Her name is Deeyah:

I predict that if the N.O.W. can embrace and defend THIS form of "Choice" it will find a whole new life, and an influx of members. Which it apparently, desperately needs.

BTW, Interesting decision in a Michigan court: no masks while testifying.

Oh, and one other thing... in the face of such dangerous and overwhelming oppression in the world .... can we now cut with the faux charges of racism in the U.S.? (Please note, I am not suggesting that there is never real racism in the U.S. There is. But geesh, gimme a break fellas. We are being "racist" in our reporting on Michael Jackson's death?)



  1. Does the issue of repressed homosexuality come into play when a male fanatic wants to kill a woman because she is attractive?

    Just asking.
