The Religion of Peace -BC Division

Blasphemy is more grievous than bloodshed. (Q 2:192)

“What freedom? No one has that type of freedom. There is always a limit to it. For example, could you just drive by in a red light because you felt like it, because you have the freedom to do as you wish?”
- Shaykh Ahmad Shehab on the relative threat to life and limb posed by reckless driving and the Danish Motoons.

Inshallah, Shayk Shehab will be the "special guest" at an upcoming fundraiser for the Surrey Muslim School. This promises to be a fascinating evening as the special guest is apparently quite the polymath, being not only well, ahem, versed in Islam's views on free expression, but an expert on marriage, as well as the dangers of black magic and possession by jinns.

One can't help but wonder how these topics are covered at the school, which lists amongst its goals cultivating their students into "ambassadors of Islam."

On the other hand, the BC Muslim Association, which runs the school, may well be alerting everyone to their complete disagreement with Shehab's teachings on one of the basic freedoms on which Western Civilization is based, and making sure they don't make their poisonous way into the curriculum, since we all know (or should) where that sort of thing leads.

Anyway, one thing's for sure, if I'm ever possessed by a jinn, I'll know just where to turn.

This sort of loony toon shouldn't be anywhere near a school in this country.
