Bollywood vs. Bin Laden. Now is the Month of Maying

Reason TV, why Radical Islam Fears Pop Culture. Telling stuff. Bollywood paradise on Earth vs. you're stuck until you get those virgins in heaven.

And even if you can have more than one wife under radical Islam, she's still not good enough. How about the words of the funeral service we learned about at the unlamented passing of Osama bin Laden?:
O Allah, forgive him, have mercy on him, pardon him, grant him security, provide him a nice place and spacious lodgings, wash him (off from his sins) with water, snow and ice, purify him from his sins as a white garment is cleansed from dirt, replace his present abode with a better one, replace his present family with a better one, replace his present partner with a better one, make him enter paradise and save him from the trials of grave and the punishment of hell. 
Marrying for love has been the idea for a few centuries in the West, even if parents often had some say, even if material considerations weighed in. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet may have been star-crossed lovers but that was a long time ago.

So, on a lighter note: 
And in Taipei too.

A culture of life is the natural choice.

Oh and I shared your post at the A-C page. :)

What a miserable existence islam compels people to live, where's the LOVE? (and I mean real love, not love of violence, oppression and killing folks) Bollywood certainly presents a much more welcoming message.

Thanks!

Yeah, this brand of Islam seems like hell on earth. India's model with more than one faith--and a growing economy--is much more appealing
