    I read about the revelations about Cardinal Pell.
    It occurs to me that it might have been appropriate for J to be playing a flute to accompany M.

  2. Sosusk says:

    I feel that the last text bubble should read something like “why would you think so?”in genuine astonishment.

  3. Steeve says:

    I think George Pell was just paying lip service to his calling

  4. machigai says:

    When is their album coming out?

  5. Krokus says:

    I imagine there is a hypocrisy-meter rattling behind the scenes to produce a twisted rhythm of their song.
    I’m looking forward to listen to J&M hottest album in hypo-crop genre.

    Pells lawyer is a twat…Suppose he would be using the “but he was a vegetarian and loved fluffy kittens” in a defence of Hitler…

  7. Pandora Oliver says:

    This reminds me of a Laugh-in segment starring the Farkle Family – two tweens: Hi, I’m Simon, Hi, I’m Gar. [together] We’re Simon and Gar Farkle.

  8. Troubleshooter says:

    I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
    — Isaiah 45:7

    SPROING!!! Oh, dear, J&M’s hypocrisy meter just stroked out again!

  9. Mr B Elms-Lester says:

    The realisation of this position as a child is what lead me to Atheism.

  10. postdoggerel says:

    This lip service and mendacity, hypocritical duplicity, deceitful charade, doublespeak, dishonesty, pretense, sham, arrogance, spurious posturing and sanctimony with its perfidy, hubris and pettiness are the hallmarks of kakistocracy. It’s always been there before us. I know this, it’s in my thesaurus.

  11. M27Holts says:

    Apparently, parliament are going to bring back a blasphemy law for those who attack Islam…Stupid fookers…

  12. Someone says:

    Preaching to the choir in 3…2…1…

    A nation that classifies itself as “civilized”, especially a western nation, has no excuse to (re)introduce and enforce blasphemy laws whilst encouraging and championing free speech, especially in secular societies.

    It shouldn’t matter if the religious don’t like the critiques, protests or flat out insults they receive, considering how much they regularly dish out, every person should have the right to speak out against such an establishment if they please, be it Islam, Christianity, Scientology or whatever horseshit creed is being discussed.

    Monitoring those who are vocal with hate speech and credible threats of violence is, needless to say, something a responsible government should follow through with, but not to the point where blanket laws are put in place to pacify those whose very “faith” is rooted in suppression.

    For those of us on the other side of the world who don’t follow events in the UK from day to day, could you point to a reference on this?

  14. M27Holts says:

    Donn, A contact who is a member of the UK secular society informed me that parliament is considering special case modifications to the hate crime bill. These specifically include making it a hate crime to depict mohammed or question the Qur’an. This cartoon would become of interest to the dibble if such amendments are made statute…

  15. Donn says:

    So it’s not public knowledge, in the sense that news about it would appear in the legit press?

  16. machigai says:

    I can’t get to comments on the next cartoon.

  17. M27Holts says:

    Donn. Its public Knowledge that the hate crime laws are currently being scrutinised by parliament, I have emailed my own MP to try and see what is the likelyhood of specific islamophobic legislation being statute in the future as specifics are added to existing statutes.

  18. Donn says:

    If you take the “Next >” link from here to the current installment, do the comments show up there, too? That’s how I get around it. Usually fixes itself.

    As for various types of public knowledge … I am kind of particular about that. We have a big problem with it here, and there’s no reason that problem would be confined to the US. It was common knowledge that our previous president was going to enact sharia law, that he was a Moslem, etc. The only way to break that is to disbelieve word of mouth news no matter who you hear it from, until it’s out in the open in the responsible press. Even that isn’t an ironclad defense, but it’s the best I can do.
