More meaningless ramblings from another guy you don't know

Melbourne mutt morass makes Muslim mufti's mandate meaningful...maybe

If you ever needed a reason to justify the surfing you do on the greatest time-waster in the history of man Internet, learning things you otherwise wouldn't have has to be way up there on the list.

For instance, did you know that the Muslim religion proscribes contact with dogs? I have to plead total ignorance here.
"I don't refuse to take people, but it's hard for me because my religion tells me I should not go near dogs," he said.

It seems that Muslim cabbies in Melbourne are refusing to pick up blind fares with guide dogs for religious reasons. That's right, the Religion of Peace hates man's best friend.

Victorian Taxi Association spokesman Neil Sach said the association had appealed to the mufti of Melbourne to give religious approval for Muslim cabbies to carry guide dogs.

Besides the fact that I own three labs, I couldn't be prouder to be the impresario behind THE YELLOW DOG BLOG.

But Mr. Sach (who's evidently lacking one) couldn't leave well enough alone in his attempts to to get special dispensation from Melbourne's mufti. No he had to denigrate Australia's white majority:

"Muslims are good people and the community has to realise that the days of the white Anglo-Saxon Protestant are well and truly over," he said.

Looks like Mr. Sach has adopted groveling and appeasement as his preferred method of staying on the right side of all those scary Muslims.

Good luck with that.
