Go to: Nurses Told to Turn Muslims' Beds to Mecca

First of all, although it may ruin my credibility, Nothern Bright... you're Hot!

Secondly, you have to place this in context. The story is fairly true, patients are periodically spun on the God rotisserie at tax payers expense and there is a training course for nurses in orienteering.

But One has to remember that this part of the most staunchly English county is >60% Muslim, the 7/7 bombers could tell you that, if they were not scattered to the winds that is.

Personally if I was asked to do such a thing I would insist on my right to refuse to perform this clearly religious act as I was an atheist... as similarly the courts would not force a Muslim to be a bacon taster or a Hindu a burger flipper.

So these poor indoctrinated torn and troubled western Muslims would be forced to have separate spinning wings in hospitals, doors locked to "outsiders" increasingly Muslim doctors and staff....

.... all of this to hang on to a religion (read culture) that they are rapidly losing. You see the flip side of the story is the stark reality of Muslim youth in this part of the UK is drink drugs, sex, violence and dissolutionment ... the usual product of a subtly discriminated imigrant population.

This is why they ( the American religious right and the Muslim west ) are fighting so hard for the little things.... because they are losing the big things.


Let them spin I say.... and hurry to Act II

I really enjoy hearing Eddie speak, I find him engaging and intense, clear and knowlegable.

... and practical...

...if a bit "historical"...
