This should be interesting…

Heh, I was checking out my dashboard when I saw an article from WordPress about their new ranking algorithm. It’s supposed to take into account a blog post’s “awesomeness”. So, I decided to go take a little look-see at who the WordPress algorithm thinks is “awesome”.

Of course, they don’t think the bacon suit is awesome. They have to put up a post that will draw the most pissed off psychos to my site.

Oh well, welcome.

Update: Just a thought, if you have a WordPress blog, do me a favor and check their ranking page and see if your blog shows up at the top. Since it’s a new feature and it’s April 1st, they may just be playing a little joke on our egos.

Updated update: Yep, it’s a prank. This post shows up there now. Either that or I’m just REALLY awesome. It’s about fifty-fifty either way.

The religion of peace atrocities

Posted by mesablue on April 1, 2007

If you are still one of the uninformed sheeple who feel that muslim extremists pose no threat to the world — read the articles that I link here. If you are not compeletely disgusted and horrified, I suggest that you make a trip to the Middle East to commune with your buddies. Make sure you wear the bacon scented tuxedo to ingratiate yourself — until they cut off your head with a rusty knife while video taping it for their pals.

The Christian victims of Iraq

Holy Week is a time when Christians think of the crucifixion of Jesus. This year, they should also be meditating on another crucifixion: that of a 14-year-old boy, nailed to a cross by Islamists in Iraq.


This diabolical crime was part of a campaign by jihadists to extinguish one of the most ancient Christian Churches in the world, that of the Assyrians.


I don’t know if the Christian teenager who was crucified in Basra last October knew Jesus’s language, but by the time the Islamists had finished with him he certainly knew a great deal about his suffering.

From The Catholic Herald:

“When they cook a dish in the Middle East, it is traditional to put the meat on top of the rice when they serve it. They kidnapped a woman’s baby in Baghdad, a toddler, and because the mother was unable to pay the ransom, they returned her child – beheaded, roasted and served on a mound of rice.” The infant’s crime was to be an Assyrian, but this story, reported by the Barnabus Fund, went unnoticed in the West, like so many other horrific accounts of Christian persecution in Iraq.


Since the invasion of Iraq, Muslim militants have bombed 28 churches and murdered hundreds of Christians. Last October, Islamists beheaded a priest in Mosul in revenge for the Pope’s remarks about Islam at Regensburg. But never let it be said that jihadis do not have a sense of ironic humour: that same month they crucified a 14-year-old Christian boy in Basra.

Barbaric. Disgusting. Evil.

The articles I link are very interesting, but try to blame the West for indifference to the suffering of Iraqi Christians as cause for the incidents. Never mind that we have over a hundred thousand young men and women on the ground working to quash these lowest of human scum.

I blame the animals that perpetrated the acts.

There is a large Assyrian Catholic and Chaldean community here in the Detroit area. Their plight over the centuries is well known to many here. The media, with their nano-second long term memory, like to blame us for anything bad that happens in Iraq, saying that toppling Saddam created a power vacuum that is responsible for the hideous events described above. Saddam was the reason hundreds of thousand of Iraqi Christians fled their country. Many returned after his toppling, some finding the situation too volatile and leaving once again.

Assyrian and Chaldean Christians were being persecuted long before the US invaded Iraq. The only difference now is that the bad actors are not following the orders of Saddam and his henchmen. Saddam was able to reign in some of the extremists in the past, but only because he pacified them with fear and the occasional mass slaughter.

Extremists with the support of Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia are behind most of the the problems we are seeing today. Any religion that fosters and tolerates this special kind of evil needs to be questioned. Moderate muslims say that these acts are not representative of most muslims.

So, while these primitive animals continue to wage terror on their own citizens, all in the name of Islam — we wait for the voice of moderate Islam to stand up and condemn their savage brethren.

So far, the silence has been deafening.
