Rendered doubly idiotic now that we dont even have a Caliph.

Of course the Shiites claim their man is hiding somewhere and will return at some point, hence, 'the hidden Imam.'

How awkward would it be if he turned up at the same moment Jesus reappeared. Get the popcorn out for that one, or what?
Jesus just appeared to me the other day. On toast. Pity I am not a fan. His trip was wasted on me!
Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

Just to follow up on this story.


So...there seems to be a bit of misunderstanding at play here, i think. When Abdel-Magied refers to 'sharia law,' she is clearly referring to the various innocuous practices of being an observant Muslim, like daily prayer and dietary regulations. However, for most Australians, myself included, 'sharia law' is normally thought of as a total legal system based on Islam that renders other secular legal practices obsolete.
Not only that but a politician standing up and defending their Christian religious convictions wouldn't even make the news.
