"Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious." -- Ayatollah Khomeini

Surprised by Joy: The Shape of My Early Life
C.S. Lewis
http://www.amazon.com/Surprised-Joy-Shape-Ear...

"A young man who wishes to remain a sound Atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere ... God is, if I may say it, very unscrupulous." ~ C.S. Lewis

This book is not an autobiography. It is not a confession. It is, however, certainly one of the most beautiful and insightful accounts of a person coming to faith. In this case, that person is C.S. Lewis and his path takes us from a childhood in Belfast through the loss of his mother, to boarding school and a youthful atheism in England, to the trenches of World War I, and then to life at Oxford, where he studied, read, and, ultimately, reasoned his way back to God. It is perhaps this aspect of Surprised by Joy that we—believers and nonbelievers—find most compelling and meaningful; Lewis was searching for joy, for an elusive and momentary sensation of glorious yearning, but he found it, and spiritual life, through the use of reason.

In this highly personal, thoughtful, intelligent memoir, Lewis guides us toward joy and toward the surprise that awaits anyone who seeks a life beyond the expected.

"Fascinating."—The Nation

"Lewis tempered his logic with a love for beauty, wonder, and magic ... He speaks to us with all the power and life-changing force of a Plato, a Dante, and a Bunyan." —Christianity Today

"The tension of these final chapters holds the interest like the close of a thriller ... God moves, indeed, in a mysterious way, and this book gives a brilliant account of one of the oddest and most decisive end-games He has ever played." —Times Literary Supplement

C. S.(Clive Staples) Lewis (1898–1963), one of the great writers of the twentieth century, also continues to be one of our most influential Christian thinkers. He wrote more than thirty books, both popular and scholarly, including The Chronicles of Narnia series, The Screwtape Letters, The Four Loves, Mere Christianity, and Till We Have Faces.

Good post. I can remember that dark scowl on Khomeini's face during the Carter years. It never changed.
More fun quotes from Khomeini:

"The Islamic regime does not have oppression." -Ayatollah Khomeini (in an interview with France Press news agency, Paris, October 25, 1978)

"The foundation of our Islamic government is based on freedom of dialogue and will fight against any kind of censorship." -Ayatollah Khomeini (in an interview with Reuters news agency, Paris, October 26, 1978)

"In the Islamic Republic the rights of the religious minorities are respectfully regarded." -Ayatollah Khomeini (in an interview with an Austrian TV reporter, Paris, November 6, 1978)

"In Iran's Islamic government the media has the freedom to express all Iran's realities and events, and people have the freedom to form any form of political parties and gatherings that they like." -Ayatollah Khomeini (in an interview with the Italian newspaper Paese Sera, Paris, November 2, 1978)

"Our future society will be a free society, and all the elements of oppression, cruelty, and force will be destroyed." -Ayatollah Khomeini (in an interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel, Paris, November 7, 1978)

"In the Islamic government all people have complete freedom to have any kind of opinion." -Ayatollah Khomeini (in an interview with Human Rights Watch, Paris, November 10, 1978)

"In Islamic Iran the clergy themselves will not govern but only observe and support the government's leaders. The government of the country at all levels will be observed, evaluated, and publicly criticized." -Ayatollah Khomeini (in an interview with Reuters news agency, Paris, October 26, 1978)

"That group that due to its opposition to Islam is opposing us, with the same fist that we destroyed the regime we will destroy that group as well. Pay attention to your statements. Repent from your writings. I am warning you that you still have time to repent." -Ayatollah Khomeini (in a talk at the Fayzieah School, Qom, June 5, 1979)

"The intellectuals, the writers, those who have information and thoughts, you see some of them take their pens and in the name of democracy they write whatever they want and they cause disagreements. This group of so-called intellectuals has to correct themselves. Whatever we are suffering is from this group of intellectuals and judges. What we are suffering is because of them.-Ayatollah Khomeini (in a talk in Qom, July 23, 1979)

"We have to warn these intellectuals that if they don't stop their meddling, they will be crushed. We have treated you gently so that maybe you would stop your evilness, and if you don't stop, we will have the last word. These American sympathizers and others must know that in just a few hours we can throw them in the trashcan of annihilation any day that we wish to do so." -Ayatollah Khomeini (in a talk to the Iranian people, August 8, 1979)

The Joy of Sects
http://www.amazon.com/The-Joy-Sects-Peter-Occ...

Religion is one of the oldest human activities and even in the present day pervades almost every aspect of life, but with so many seemingly incomprehensible beliefs, laws, rituals, and terminologies, you can't tell the players without a program. The Joy of Sects overcomes this confusion by presenting a rich trove of information in a concise, browsable format. It is a guidebook to the world's religious traditions not only for the devout follower but also for the interested outsider, for the curious unbeliever, and for anyone who ever wondered about the difference between karma and dharma, yin and yang, Talmud and Torah, the astral plane and the akashic record, Pharisees and Sadducees, Sunnis and Shiites.

Don't worry Patriot. This Timesten is nothing but a frustrated homosexual loser. I've been verbally stomping his sorry ass for two years now. He's an idiot, thin-skinned like his pedo-cult's founder, but absolutely lacking in any type of logic or reasoning skills. Just another piece of slime from the slime-pit that is islam. He's like an annoying fly. He can't stand to hear about how islam denies those under its sway ANY of the rights listed in the UN's 1948 Declaration of Human Rights. He doesn't have a leg to stand on whatsoever. And since he was put on the sex offender registry in Massachusetts, he REALLY has to mind his P's and Q's, and that frustrates him further. Let him have it if you like. He deserves every drop of vitriol we pour in his face.

Joke #3:
Appears Arabs didn't exist before 853 BCE. Now that's 1,400 years before Islam. Hebrews have been around since 1,900 BCE. Twice as long as Arabs.
So "abba" comes on here and says he is a "tall Arab", which means he has to be one inch taller than the 4 foot three inch average Arab height.
But he joke part is, hahahaha, that I looked up the name "abba" and found it was a Hebrew name dating back to the time of Abraham, which means "abba" is a Hebrew with Jewish bloodline connections.
Jokes on you "abba" ben juden.
That should make his head spin. LOL
