New possibly controversial monkey
As the text under the picture indicates (I must emphasize this in as big and bold a text as I can), THIS IS NOT AN IMAGE OF THE ISLAM PROPHET MUHAMMED!!! What it is though is a representation of the zany Muslim zealots who go nuts whenever they see an image of Muhammed or even if they think they see his image. Worse yet is that they try and justify their violence by stating how these images defile Him so much. There are some recent murmurs like this over an episode of South Park from Season 5 (an episode I happily own on DVD by the way).
Nation of Islam, I'd like to be frank with you for a bit. I'll start by telling you a brief bit of history of the Catholic Church. For years and years, all the masses and other ceremonies were done entirely in Latin. This was a practice continued well into the 20th century. However, this caused many people to decry this church as out-dated and irrelevent to today. So, in 1960, something called Vatican II was organized. This brought many religious leaders together in order to hold a series of meetings so that they could find ways to modernize the church while still keeping with its traditional values. One of the things thankfully thrown out was the Latin. This and a few other changes brought many parishoners back to the church and Catholicism is still quite strong today, minus the priest/boy molestation of course. No, the church is indeed not perfect, but noone has any malatav cocktails to throw at anybody.
Islam, you need a Vatican II equivalent now more than ever. Or maybe you needed one back before Osama bin Laden and George W. Bush started this whole mess.
In any case, the monkey above will be joining these monkeys along with this monkey and these wittle monkeys too. Watch for all of them in a new adventure coming...................... I'm not sure when.
