Four imams traveling to Charlotte for a conference on prejudice against Muslims got a little something extra to discuss over the weekend. Mohamed Zaghloul and Masoud Rahman were booted off a Delta flight on Friday night in Memphis after the pilot refused to fly with the two on board. On the same night, Al Amin Abdul Latif and Abu Bakr Abdul Latif were forced to miss their flight from New York after discrepancies arose with names and birthdays.

These guys have a right to be upset. If I was heading to Vegas and missed my flight because I bared resemblance to an extremely dashing and handsome terrorist, I’d be pissed. At the same time, you have to know that there’s going to be a ton of security the week Osama bin Laden is killed. If you’re trying to take a plane dressed like one of his cousins, you’re probably going to be scrutinized. Maybe the pilot didn’t have a great excuse throwing these two lads off his plane, but I bet if they were rocking Z-Bo jerseys, they would have made their flight. So if you don’t want to ditch the cool white hats in the future, make sure to show up a few hours early, guys. Yeah, it sucks and it’s racist but that’s life.

>Simpsons Video of the Week: Homer Eats God

Posted: April 19, 2011 by Keith Stone in religion, Simpsons, videos


With Homer desperate for tickets to the big football game, he turns to God for help. Unfortunately, he ends up violating the Eleventh Commandment: “Thou shall not eat God.”


Lady Gaga is under fire from Catholic League President Bill Donohue, but not for the reasons you’d think. Gaga’s new single Judas has been hitting airwaves over the past week, in which she proclaims her love for the man who betrayed Jesus. She also dresses like Mary Magdelene in the video. Did I mention that Easter is this Sunday? It’s fair to think that the Church would be furious but Donohue took another approach. He called Gaga “irrelevant” and the song a ploy to distract fans from her lack of talent. I didn’t realize the Catholic League dished out verbal beatdowns but I love it. I haven’t seen anything like this since Jesus started flipping tables over in the temple. If Bill Donohue ever leaves the Catholic League, he has an open invitation to hang out in The Suite. I wonder what the Pope thought about the whole thing. I’m pretty sure he’s more of a Ke$ha fan.
