new hope for interreligious dialogue?

hey, is that a scratch-and-sniff koran? or HERESY!

despite finding a silver lining in the possibility of a muslim takeover, i for one am not quite ready to greet our new overlords with a smile and a heartfelt “dirka dirka dirka.”

nonetheless, an informed reader has alerted me to a certain similarity between the true catholic faith and the teachings of a certain mohammedan name ayatollah khomeini.

here’s the quote from khomeini:

Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.

wow, a few changes and this could be a verbatim citation from SAINT pius v.

God did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. A Catholic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Real Catholicism. There is no humor in Real Catholicism. There is no fun in Real Catholicism. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.

it makes you wonder…
