Over at Pammy’s House O’ Crazy, Pamela Geller gets some minor (by her standards) ladywood over the fact that a Brooklyn KFC is serving halal chicken.
…for New Yorkers there is a new option for deep fried (and now grilled!) chicken from a popular and familiar fast food chain. Within the last 2 weeks, a new Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) has opened up in Brooklyn, NY which offers the taste of halal chicken on its menu.
Pammy’s post is of minor interest, but the comments are a treasure trove of good old fashioned American Paranoia & Lunacy.
Col. Sanders was a Freemason and a Shriner. Every Shriner is a 33d degree Mason who takes an oath to Allah, Mohammed and the Koran.
Candidates for induction into the Shriners are greeted by a High Priest, who says:
“By the existence of Allah and the creed of Mohammed; by the legendary sanctity of our Tabernacle at Mecca, we greet you.”
The inductees then swear on the Bible and the Koran, in the name of Mohammed, and invoke Masonry’s usual gruesome penalties upon themselves:
“I do hereby, upon this Bible, and on the mysterious legend of the Koran, and its dedication to the Mohammedan faith, promise and swear and vow … that I will never reveal any secret part or portion whatsoever of the ceremonies … and now upon this sacred book, by the sincerity of a Moslem’s oath I here register this irrevocable vow … in willful violation whereof may I incur the fearful penalty of having my eyeballs pierced to the center with a three-edged blade, my feet flayed and I be forced to walk the hot sands upon the sterile shores of the Red Sea until the flaming sun shall strike me with livid plague, and may Allah, the god of Arab, Moslem and Mohammedan, the god of our fathers, support me to the entire fulfillment of the same. Amen. Amen. Amen.”
You probably won’t be surprised to hear that the above commenter was one of the saner ones.
I swear on the penalty of having my eyeballs scooped out with a spork.
