GRIPE

Another, gathering of redneck infidels for pork eating in sympathy with the Blue Revolution of France and Convenanters of Canada has concluded. Pilgrim and I met with a fellow 910 member , degreeofmadness, and discussed -what else?- that prevaricating death cult called islam.

I wondered aloud how much of the evident dislike for islam, to be found in Alabama, might be based on an ill informed xenophobia that would sublimate during a well administered infliction of guilt. It is a dangerous conceit to think that islam can not make the same type of inroads here, that it has made in Europe. Not if the underlying reason for resistance is an ignorant hatred of a foreign peoples. I want the people of Alabama to know exactly what islam is. Hatred of such a set of values does naturally follow such knowledge. Such honest confrontation, with what islam actually is, can even lead muslims to depart from the death cult.

Also discussed was the mithrab in Shanksville that I posted about
here .

I enjoyed meeting with y'all last night. Great food, great fun and GREAT conversation. I have much to learn and next time I'm bringing a notebook so I can write it all down. Remember to speak slowly!

Covenanters of Canada. That has a nice ring to it.

My mother's side of the family were involved with the original Covenanters from Scotland.

Many families from Scotland were involved with the Covenanters in one way or the other. I believe the involvement of my ancestors with those Covenantors was of an adversarial nature.

I think even some of the Canadians, that I refer too, dislike the accidental comparison for similar reasons.

I really wanted to be there tonight, but I'm having a yard sale tomorrow (I really don't have good sense) so I have lots of work to do! I'm interested in your take on the election in France. Will you save me a seat for next Thursday???

The fate of the Covenanters brought on by King James, the Papish ruler of England, is the top reason why my family dislikes Catholics. I come from a long line of devout Protestants, but I do not follow religion. I guess things changed for me because I tied religion in with violence when I used to watch the "orange walks" which were parades that gave excuses to drunks to bash in the heads of those who opposed their religious beliefs.

What makes you think King James (I of England, VI of Scotland) was "papish?" He was not Catholic. Do you think that he had too much respect for the RCC? ,hence pap-"ish" rather than papist?

I neither dislike Catholics nor Presbyterians. I dislike the inodinate authority invested in the pope and the long discarded practise of forced conversion practised by the Covenantors of history.

Perhaps, I too am pap-"ish" because I beleive in a vague catholicsm, wherein Orange Unionists, Republican Catholics, and Canadians seeking to renew or create new and volunatary covenants with their neighbors, agree on enough of the important matters.

Oops, I'd overlooked your second comment here MadCow, but I will certianly save you a seat.

I've been linking, through Covenant Zone, to Galliawatch to get some approximation of how French conservatives are reacting to Sarkozy's election. Some of the sentiments expressed remind me of how I mulled over the term "compasionate conservative" prior to 2000. I think the news of Sarkozy's election is good enough news. I look forward to discussing this.
