I’ve been reading this blog for some time now. He’s a Saudi ex-patriot living in the UK. It’s very interesting that in the Saudi culture they have “religious police” patrolling the streets searching for someone breaking a religious law. How close are the parallels to Reverend Phelps, Doctor Dobson and the Theologues in this country. Why do we, as humans, feel the need to tell other people how to live their lives? I know you think you’ve found the answer in Jesus, or Allah, or Weight Watchers or Scientology or whatever legalistic power-mad cult is trying to take over the world this week, but please give the rest of us a little credit. Although it’s not apparent from network television, the american public can think for themselves.
