[rant] Blaaaaah Blaaaaah [/rant]

Apparently, the human spirit possesses a capacity to withhold much under extreme duress. How often do people wonder what their inner tensile strength is? Or do people sit about like the Talamasca and watch and wait and are always there waiting for impending doom? So that they can cash in their bonus points for vouchers on the pre-prayed system when they've accumulated enough?

There's got to be nothing more irritating than religious zealots who believe they have a God ordained moral right to pontificate purely because of they claim they're in the possession of the title deeds for the monopoly on Truth. But whilst they spend a lot of their time in physical prayer, their minds are busy praying to the Great God of Materialism. Not only do these people meet the basic minimum requirement in the prayer stats but they surpass it with adding all the optional extra ones. And they let you know it as well.

Strange thing is, these people cannot understand why they're classified as resolutely Blaaaaahnian by yours truly. But I, and most people with a conscience I suppose, find it extremely offensive when the aforementioned types pay their staff minimum wages, or less. Work them to the bone as well, declaring that they need to get their money's worth out. I find it offensive as well when staff complain about their pay that they get told to pray. Prayer's one thing, inflation and reality quite another. If you can buy your daughter a Mini Cooper S as a birthday present, then please don't preach the value and importance of living a simple life.

Hypocrisy rears it's ugly head all the time. I cannot reconcile the social hypocrisy of being the height of piety to the world, but callously oppressing any underlings and not having any qualms about. If piety means anything, be a decent human being without the religious fluff attached. Attempting to be decent will at least add a bit of practice to the preaching.

The Blogosphere 'conspiracists' are probably wondering what inspired this post.Well, lots of things have, but I think the most relevant to these parts is that while I've been AWOL, I have been receiving odd bits of "soul-saving" advice from the Association of Anonymous twits. And no, I will not renounce my Satinic (sic) ways. Bitches.

I'm back with a vengeance baby.Next post in two months :P

Ditto young niece.

The problem I have with People of the Blah, is that they tend to use the length of their beard, and the shortness of their trousers as status symbols, and then have the audacity to point out your faults to the world. There is no point in running off to Masjid 5 times a day if inbetween prayers you are defrauding the government of VAT, or offloading a load of cigarettes that "fell" off the back of a truck. And even if they aren't into illegal activities, the Blahnians tend to have this "In your face" attitude when it comes to religion.

yup, most people in Blah need to realise it is being a good person that makes you a good person, not praying 5 times a day when exploiting people at the same time.

I told you have found out who your stalker is. It is a Chinese person. Or Black person. Or previously disadvantaged person. Who believes your support of the textile industry should be stopped in favour of cheap chines/black/previously disadvantaged imports, from China.

These hiatuses are good for you, not so much so for the Blaaaaahnians.
They remind me of some of the Azaadvillians who'd frequent our supermarket back in the day.
Your soul-savers need hugs, preferably from ghair-mahrams.

'Conventionality is not morality.Self-righteousness is not religion.'

Take the cups of meaning off the shelf, dust them off, and spill a little some into your veins. Idiots.

Btw the Sanctifier is me. My default is set to this identity and I can't get rid of it.
