Catholics and homosexual adoption

Catholic Care loses to Homosexuals

Roman Catholic ideology believe practising Homosexual acts is a sin but like most Christians they will forgive if they repent, that does not mean you stop being Homosexual you just stop practising Homosexual acts. No if you can not deal with or do not agree with it leave the Catholic Church.

Why I mention this is Catholic Care is an Adoption Agency that abides by the doctrine of the Catholic Church so they will not let Homosexuals adopt children one would have thought in a free country you would allowed to practise what you preach NO yet again the state steps in to stop freedom. Militant Homosexuals have used the Human Rights Act to enforce them, why should they do that when there are plenty of other agencies who will do this? Simple the very small homosexual community what to have inordinate power given to them and convince all of us their relationships are normal, most of us accept Homosexuals but most like me find the homosexual act abhorrent, most of us believe marriage should be between Man or Women. Yet we accept that a Civil Partnership is needed to protect a couple for legal reasons but why is a Civil Partnership just restricted to Homosexual and Lesbians?

It is not normal for two men to have children Nature and God makes reproduction of offspring the mating of Male and Female of the species. Also all surveys and enquiries have found that the best way to bring up children is in a Traditional Marriage, followed by a long term stable relationship between a man and women, the most difficult way to bring up a child is with a single parent so why with all this knowledge should we put children into this Homosexual experiment. Yes experiment because that what it is I dread to think what sate of mind the children will be in when they reach 16 but then again who cares as long as the militant Homosexuals get their way.

Well done the Catholic Church for sticking to their beliefs maybe the Church of England could learn that lesson to

Police time for change

Dear Editor

Last week in the EKG an article appeared titled “Policing changes Foolish” this is where Ann Barnes Chairman Kent Police Authority rejected the proposed changes to Policing by the present Government particular FBI Type National Crime Agency and elected Police Commissioner. Firstly surely it makes sense to have one overall body for the UK it works in the USA and they are bigger country then us and as some who suggested years ago having an elected Sheriff it is an obvious that we need elected Chief Constables. People like Ann Barnes prefer the status quo because they like their authority as do the Chief Constables.

Yet when it was reported recently that there is a “Caution Culture in the UK “ because Police are just trying to keep their arrest figures up for the benefit of impressing the Government and the people that they have a grip on crime which they do not have. 80% of the population believe that the system respects the rights of the accused rather then the victim. Senior Officers are more interested in promoting their own future and abiding by the Political Correct liberal softness.

The Police and the Judicial System are there to protect the people of this country something they are failing to do, with the country in such financial mess cuts have to be made by the Police but I hope the government does not allow each individual Police Chief Constable the responsibility of applying the cuts because they will cut the PC’s and PSO’s etc, the cuts should come from the top.

Here are a few ideas to save money cut ranks such Chief Inspector, Chief Superintendent, Assistant Chief Constable this was done many years ago and it was successful, cut chauffer driven cars for Senior Officers why can not a Chief Constable drive himself? Cut things that are not policing last year Kent Count Constabulary organised “Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual week “what has someone’s sexuality got to do with Police Work, stop all diversity courses recently on Sheppey officers had to go a two day diversity course instead of doing Policing, is their need for Police Magazine being sent to every household in Kent? Why not employ officers on their ability rather then their sex, sexual orientation or ethnicity, the cry from these people is the Police needs to represent society RUBBISH the Police are there to do a Job of work protecting the public and upholding the Law; this positive discrimination has led to a drop in the quality of Police Officers.

Here is a way to make money get Police vehicles to carry advertisement (monitored) get an outside organisation to print a Police Magazine which can be self financing by way of advertising, share Central Offices with the other emergency services.

The Public demand an effective Police Force that will cut crime and support victims of Crime it also needs a judicial system that deals with crime in a sensible manner and in some cases using Draconian way and stop talking about Human Rights and start talking about Human Responsibility

Englishman are Lazy?

The Coalition Government have vowed to get Dole cheats back working and I totally agree with them, why should us tax payers pay for the lazy and feckless BUT there is a problem where do the Jobs come from? We have unemployment on the increase amongst British Subjects yet work for foreign workers and immigrants are on the increase. Our new Government have told us there will be a new beginning BRITISH JOBS FOR BRITISH WORKERS that what we were told and all the time they new they could not uphold this ideal Why?

1) EU Nationals are allowed to work here by Law something the last Government signed up for

2) Greedy Share holders and Company Directors and farmers are only interested in profit and do not care for their own Countryman

3) The Conservative Majority ii this government is being dominated by Libdem policies which exasperates the problem

4) Can I give a few example in the Swale area nearly all Fruit pickers are Foreign with one farmer in Faversham employing over 700 I would suggest there could be a couple of thousand in the area, many factories in the area employ foreign labour i.e. I am told 20% of the new Morrison’s Depot are Foreign Labour. I recently spoke to a chap who works for a major building company in London and is in charge of 700 men working on building sites and not one is English!

So why not employ the English first the normal excuse comes out “The English are lazy and have no pride in there work, will not work the hours etc” most of the Foreign workforce and Immigrant Labour will work 6 days a week 12 hours a day but then most of them do not have a family here and are here to work and earn as much money to send back to their own country, most do not stay here long enough to pay Tax or National Insurance and will live together sharing a house or caravan very admirable you may say but how can English live and work like that. He wants to be part of his family, he wants to see his children, he wants to have free time to enjoy and he will be paying mortgage or living in a house for one family, we are not living in the middle ages anymore “YOU WORK TO LIVE, NOT LIVE TO WORK” the latter was what was expected 200 years ago. As for pride in their work why have English craftsman been asked for all over the World, there is good and bad in all nationalities but if you pay peanuts you get monkeys.

When I was growing up all we heard from the Unions was the need for a 40 hour week which I agreed with what’s happened to that? As for the Unions they are more interested in Politics and feathering their own nest why are there no Demos outside where all these places which employ mainly foreign labour that White Elephant the Olympic Games no shouting Scab or is that against the Human Rights.

One other reason given to me by the Construction industry is that we do not have enough Tradesman and you have to agree with them Governments over the last 20 years have concentrated on Academic Qualification getting as may youngsters into University and forgetting about the 60%, let bring back the old fashioned apprenticeship. All the time we have this coalition government nothing will happen with immigration, the human rights act and unemployment for the people who live in GB. How long before we have riots in the streets attacks on Immigrants who knows maybe never because I expect this Government will just keep on paying English to stay at home.

Robin Williams



The Plan!


Robin Williams, wearing a shirt that says 'I love New York ' in Arabic.

You gotta love Robin Williams........Even if he's nuts! Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan. What we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message.

Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with this logic!)

'I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan.'

1) 'The US, UK , CANADA and AUSTRALIA will apologize to the world for our 'interference' in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those 'good 'ole' boys', we will never 'interfere' again.

2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany , South Korea , the Middle East, and the Philippines . They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.

3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave. We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are from. They're illegal!!! France will welcome them.

4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in. If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5) No foreign 'students' over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a 'D' and it's back home baby.

6) The US, UK , CANADA and AUSTRALIA will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing non-polluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for a while.

7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)

8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not 'interfere..' They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army.. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.

9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us 'Ugly Americans' any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH...learn it...or LEAVE. Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?

The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying 'Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses.' She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?' '

If you agree with the above, forward it to friends...If not, and I would be amazed if you DELETED it!!

read and say thankyou

Just wanted to say thank you.

As we progress into the year 2010, I want to thank you for your educational e-mails over the past year. I am totally screwed up now and have little chance of recovery.

I no longer open a bathroom door without using a paper towel, or have the waitress put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying about the bacteria on the lemon peel.

I can't use the remote in a hotel room because I don't know what the last person was doing while flipping through the adult movie channels.

I can't sit down on the hotel bedspread because I can only imagine what has happened on it since it was last washed.

I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving because the number one pastime while driving alone is picking one's nose.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I can only imagine how many gallons of Trans fats I have consumed over the years.

I can't touch any woman's purse for fear she has placed it on the floor of a public bathroom.

I MUST SEND MY SPECIAL THANKS to whoever sent me the one about rat poop in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with every envelope that needs sealing.

ALSO, now I have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason

I no longer have any savings because I gave it to a sick girl (Penny Brown) who is about to die for the 1,387,258th time.

I no longer have any money, but that will change once I receive the $15,000 that Bill Gates/Microsoft and AOL are sending me for participating in their special e-mail program.

I no longer worry about my soul because I have 363,214 angels looking out for me, and St. Theresa's Novena has granted my every wish.

I can't eat at KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes, feet or feathers.

I can't use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day.

THANKS TO YOU I have learned that my prayers only get answered if I forward an e-mail to seven of my friends and make a wish within 5 minutes.

BECAUSE OF YOUR CONCERN, I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains.

I no longer buy gas without taking someone along to watch the car so a serial killer doesn't crawl in my back seat when I'm filling up.

I no longer drink Pepsi or Fanta since the people who make these products are atheists who refuse to put 'Under God' on their cans.

I no longer use Cling Wrap in the microwave because it causes seven different types of cancer.

AND THANKS FOR LETTING ME KNOW I can't boil a cup of water in the microwave anymore because it will blow up in my face. Disfiguring me for life.

I no longer go to the movies because I could be pricked with a needle infected with AIDS when I sit down.

I no longer go to shopping malls because someone will drug me with a perfume sample and rob me.

I no longer receive packages from UPS or Fed Ex since they are actually Al Qaeda agents in disguise.

And I no longer answer the phone because someone will ask me to dial a number for which I will get a phone bill with calls to Jamaica , Uganda , Singapore , and Uzbekistan .

I no longer buy cookies from Neiman-Marcus since I now have their recipe.

THANKS TO YOU I can't use anyone's toilet but mine because a big black snake could be lurking under the seat and cause me instant death when it bites my butt.

AND THANKS TO YOUR GREAT ADVICE I can't ever pick up a .25 cent coin dropped in the parking lot because it probably was placed there by a sex molester waiting to grab me as I bend over.

I no longer drive my car because buying gas from some companies supports Al Qaeda, and buying gas from all the others supports South American dictators.

I can't do any gardening because I'm afraid I'll get bitten by the Violin Spider and my hand will fall off.

If you don't send this e-mail to at least 144,000 people in the next 70 minutes, a large dove with diarrhea will land on your head at 5:00 p.m. Tomorrow afternoon, and the fleas from 120 camels will infest your back, causing you to grow a hairy hump. I know this will occur because it actually happened to a friend of my next door neighbor's ex-mother-in-law's second husband's cousin's best friend's beautician . . .

Oh, by the way.....

A German scientist from Argentina, after a lengthy study, has discovered that people with insufficient brain activity read their e-mail with their hand on the mouse.

Don't bother taking it off now, it's too late. (Love this one-got me!)

P. S.: I now keep my toothbrush in the living room, because I was told by e-mail that water splashes over 6 ft. out of the toilet.

And another thing

And another thing... PENSIONERS

Let's put the pensioners in jail and the criminals in a nursing home. This way the pensioners would have access to showers, hobbies and walks. They'd receive unlimited free prescriptions, dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs etc and they'd receive money instead of paying it out.

They would have constant video monitoring, so they could be helped instantly, if they fell, or needed assistance.

Bedding would be washed twice a week, and all clothing would be ironed and returned to them. A guard would check on them every 20 minutes and bring their meals and snacks to their cell.

They would have family visits in a suite built for that purpose.

They would have access to a library, weight room, spiritual counseling, pool and education.

Simple clothing, shoes, slippers, PJ's and legal aid would be free, on request.

Private, secure rooms for all, with an exercise outdoor yard, with gardens.

Each senior could have a PC a TV radio and daily phone calls.

There would be a board of directors to hear complaints, and the guards would have a code of conduct that would be strictly adhered to.

The "criminals" would get cold food, be left all alone and unsupervised.

Lights off at 8pm, and showers once a week.

Live in a tiny room and pay £900.00 per month and have no hope of ever getting out.

Justice for all we say.




Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a

single cow, born in Bourne almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the county of Lincolnshire?

And, they even tracked her calves to their stalls.

But they are unable to locate 125,000 illegal immigrants wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.



They kept talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq ...

Why didn't we just give them ours? It was drawn up by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for centuries and we're not using it anymore.



The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse or Parliament, is this -

You cannot post 'Thou Shalt Not Steal', 'Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery' and 'Thou Shall Not Lie' in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians ... It creates a hostile work environment.

£20.8 million a day to EU

copied from the Democracy Movement

Every day Britain pays £20.8 million more to the EU than we receive back in grants and subsidies.

That's £7.6 billion being given to the EU this year alone, at a time when public services are being cut and taxes increased in order to pay off Britain's debts.

In the recent Budget, our new government announced that VAT will rise sharply to 20% from January 2011 and that almost all government departments face spending cuts of up to 40%. But there was no mention of cuts to the billions we are giving to the EU.

This is even more inexplicable given that auditors continue to question the "legality and regularity" of large areas of the EU's accounts and regular reports of waste and fraud (see below).

It is completely unacceptable for the EU to be exempt from cuts, able to continue to enjoy lavish, pre-crisis levels of funding while everyone else across Europe tightens their belts.

That's why the DM and the TaxPayers' Alliance have teamed up to launch this new campaign, demanding that, if public services face severe cuts, its only fair that the billions we hand over to the EU should be cut too.

The campaign was launched in Westminster with a stunt for the media. Activists dressed as

Chancellor George Osborne and Treasury chief secretary Danny Alexander posed with a giant cheque at the gates to Downing Street and outside the Treasury (right) and then tried to pay it in at the European Commission's London office (see the

video here).

In the first initiative, hundreds of thousands of cheque style leaflets have been produced for nationwide distribution by DM and TPA activists. Further local and national events, as well as additional campaign materials, will follow.

We're asking supporters to sign the letter on the back of the leaflet and return it to us, so that large numbers can be presented to

10 Downing Street. MPs will also be informed how many of their constituents support cuts to spending on the EU being prioritised over tax rises or cuts to public services.

The letter to Prime Minister David Cameron on the back of the leaflet reads:

Dear Prime Minister,

In 2005 Tony Blair agreed to increase the amount Britain contributes to the EU budget by 60% - despite opposition from both the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats (Hansard, 19 Nov 2007).

As a result, we are due to pay the EU the huge sum of £7.6 billion this year alone (March 2010 Budget, page 204) - even taking into account the EU grants and subsidies that we receive back.

That’s £20.8 million every day.

In a recent speech you said that our national debt is "the most urgent issue facing Britain today" and all political parties agree on the need for large cuts in public spending.

If public services face severe cuts, it is only fair that the billions we hand over to the EU should also be cut.

Cutting wasteful spending on the EU would make a big contribution to reducing our deficit and solving the national debt crisis. Continuing to send billions to the EU is particularly unjustifiable given frequent reports of EU waste and fraud, coupled with auditors raising questions about the "legality and regularity" of large areas of the EU's spending year after year.

I write to express my support for the TaxPayers' Alliance's and Democracy Movement's demand that the Chancellor, George Osborne, should refuse to sign more cheques like the one shown overleaf, and instead cut the billions Britain is giving to the EU.

50p on Credit Card

I recently travelled to Scotland whilst in the service area in Peterborough I queued up for a newspaper there was quite a delay as someone was paying by Credit Card as this foreign lady left I noticed all she had was a 50p pack of sweets which she paid for by Credit Card! This amazed me and I told this to my wife and she said in shops like the Aldi foreign workers would often pay for very small items by credit card, I would have thought the shops put a fee on people using a card on small amounts so it just doesn’t make sense.

I related this story to a friend of mine who works on a very big Farm in the Faversham area, he could not understand why this is the case because most of the immigrant labour are on good money especially this time of year, he explains that his farm is practically all fruit and the Summer is when all the immigrant pickers are on the farm. Most are on peace work earning £100 to £150 a day, some doing a seven day week the remainder are on basic wage and the fact they only pay £30 per week accommodations and are not here long enough to pay tax they are well of, I went on to say how many were working he replied in access of 500, I the asked the question how many were English his reply was NONE as his employer will not employer any British people.

So we have 500 plus jobs in Faversham being taken away from British Workers and no matter what the Coalition Government say they can not do a thing about it as the workers are all EU citizens and entitled to work here. Once again the European Union over rides the interest of the British People but then what do they care, come to that what do Farmers care as long as they get their massive profits and keep their snouts in the trough

Will the press print this Article?

This has been circulating the Internet for sometime now I sent a copy to our local newspapers do you think they will print it?  NO. The one big thing about the Internet is that ordinary people can have their say, no longer are they told by the press, media and politicians what they should think

Thought you might like to read this letter to the editor of a British national newspaper. Ever notice how some people just seem to know how to write a letter?.

Here is a woman who should run for Prime Minister!

Written by a housewife, to her daily newspaper. This is one ticked off lady.

'Are we fighting a war on terror or aren't we? Was it or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores in July 2002, and in New York Sept 112001 and have continually threatened to do so since?

Were people from all over the world, not brutally murdered that day in London, and in downtown Manhattan , and in a field in Pennsylvania ?

Did nearly three thousand men, women and children die a horrible, burning or crushing death that day, or didn't they?

And I'm supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency.

I'll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11 and 7/7.

I'll care about the Koran when the fanatics in the Middle East start caring about the Holy Bible, the mere belief of which is a crime punishable by beheading in Afghanistan

I'll care when these thugs tell the world they are sorry for hacking off Nick Berg's head while Berg screamed through his gurgling slashed throat.

I'll care when the cowardly so-called 'insurgents' in Afghanistan come out and fight like men instead of disrespecting their own religion by hiding in mosques and behind women and children.

I'll care when the mindless zealots who blow themselves up in search of Nirvana care about the innocent children within range of their suicide bombs.

I'll care when the British media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.

In the meantime, when I hear a story about a British soldier roughing up an Insurgent terrorist to obtain information, know this:

I don't care.

When I see a wounded terrorist get shot in the head when he is told not to move because he might be booby-trapped, you can take this to the bank:

I don't care.

When I hear that a prisoner - who was issued a Koran and a prayer mat, and 'fed special food' that is paid for by my taxes - is complaining that his holy book is being 'mishandled,' you can absolutely believe in your heart of hearts:

I don't care.

And oh, by the way, I've noticed that sometimes it's spelled 'Koran' and other times 'Quran.' Well, believe me!! you guessed it ......

I don't care!!

If you agree with this viewpoint, pass this on to all your E-mail friends. Sooner or later, it'll get to the people responsible for this ridiculous behaviour!

If you don't agree, then by all means hit the delete button. Should you choose the latter, then please don't complain when more atrocities committed by radical Muslims happen here in our great country! And may I add:

'Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. Our soldiers don't have that problem.'

I have another quote that I would like to add, AND.......I hope you forward all this.

Only five defining forces have ever offered to die for you:

1. Jesus Christ

2. The British Soldier.

3. The Canadian Soldier.

4. The US Soldier, and

5. The Australian Soldier

6. The Ghurka Soldier

One died for your soul, the other 5 for your freedom.




Isn't it interesting that so many people in the Western World feel this way, but not one of our politicians, who are supposed to represent us, ever have the guts to state the situation like it is ???

Government ignores us

It seems our New coalition Government is doing just what the Labour done ignoring Public Opinion and treating the Electorate as idiots two things I especially

1) 85% of the Public want the banning of the Burka and what do we get from Government ministers “it is Un British to make this illegal” what is Un British is ignoring the will of the people.

2) The same percentage is for the removal of the European Hum Rights Legislation from our Law. This is the legislation that allows killers and murdering terrorists to go free and give rights to Sobham Murderer to sue the government at our expense. This was a promise of the Conservatives to rid us of this unjust act but as a milk sop to the LibDems it was dropped. Why is it that LibDems are most interested in the rights of the criminal then they are the rights of the victim and law abiding citizen

For those in politics


No matter what side of the AISLE you're on, THIS is FUNNY and VERY telling! It just all depends on how you look at same things.

Judy Rudd an amateur genealogy researcher in southern Queensland’s, was doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s great-great uncle, Remus Rudd, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Melbourne in 1889. Both Judy and Kevin Rudd share this common ancestor.

The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows at the Melbourne Gaol:

On the back of the picture Judy obtained during her research is this inscription: 'Remus Rudd horse thief, sent to Melbourne Gaol 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Melbourne-Geelong train six times. Caught by Victoria Police Force, convicted and hanged in 1889.'

So Judy recently e-mailed Prime Minister Rudd for information about their great-great uncle. Remus Rudd:

Believe it or not, Kevin Rudd's staff sent back the following biographical sketch for her genealogy research:

"Remus Rudd was famous in Victoria during the mid to late 1800s . His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Melbourne-Geelong Railroad.

Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad.

In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the Victoria Police Force. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honour when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed."

NOW That’s how it's done, folks!


I have been to Billings

Three strangers strike up a conversation in the passenger lounge in the Bozeman , Montana airport, while waiting for their respective flights.

One is an American Indian passing through from Lame Deer, another is a Cowboy on his way to Billings for a livestock show and the third passenger is a fundamentalist Arab student, newly arrived at Montana State University from theMiddle East.

Their discussion drifts to their diverse cultures. Soon, the two Westerners learn that the Arab is a devout, radical Muslim and the conversation falls into an uneasy lull.

The cowboy leans back in his chair, crosses his boots on a magazine table, tips his big sweat-stained hat forward over his face, and lights a cigarette. The wind outside is blowing tumbleweeds around, and the old windsock is flapping; but still no plane comes.

Finally, the American Indian clears his throat and softly he speaks, 'At one time here, my people were many but sadly, now we are few.'

The Muslim student raises an eyebrow and leans forward, 'Once my people were few,' he sneers, 'and now we are many. Why do you suppose that is?'

The cowboy removes his cigarette from his mouth and from the darkness beneath his Stetson says in a smooth drawl . . .

'I reckon that's 'cause we ain't played Cowboys and Muslims yet, But I do believe it's a-comin'.'
