    Don't try to make the sign of the cross in Pakistan,Iran...etc. You would be shot on the spot.

    Dr. Jazz's comment demonstrates that Catholics have the best sense of humor!

    As I understand it from the Daily Telegraph of London, *all* prayer is to be banned in the street in France, not just Muslim prayer.

    So, this large military depot that the French government will permit Muslims to rent . . . will it still have weapons in it? I suppose if it does, it will make the Muslim takeover of France (and Europe) that much easier.
