Father Kevin and the Djinns
In any conversation, I like to take the helm - other people tend to choose tedious subjects to talk about -usually a glorified version of talking about themselves; wittering on about their children, or the price of stuff they have being buying recently, or where they have been, or would like to go on a holiday and I really don't care about any of those things at all. I spend enough time in my working life listening to people going on and on about themselves- in my free time I like to talk about more serious and philosophical things.
So I decided to talk about Djinns to Father Kevin, and to find out whether or not he would be prepared to kill a cow, in order to appease evil spirits. He kept on: "I don't believe that killing a cow would get rid of Djinns anyway," and I was saying "Even though I am a vegetarian I would kill a cow with my bare hands to placate the Djinns". So then Father Kevin was all: "I don't even believe in Djinns" and I had to point out that if people, perhaps as a result of the savage, uneducated, simplicity of their Non-Catholic lives, chose to believe that there were Djinns - then there were Djinns. It was a matter of these heathen folks' perception -something that might not feel like a problem in one person's life, could be perceived as a highly stressful event in another's. Catholics might not register Djinns as a threat to their spiritual lives - but if we are in a society where Djinns are perceived as a threat - they are a threat, it is as simple as that. So, therefore, in a society where the Djinn is a feared mental aggressor, killing cows to appease them is necessary, whether you personally believe in Djinns or not.
Then Father Kevin got out the trump card, and said that killing a cow to appease a Djinn would be an occasion of sin, which I think is bollocks, and he only said it because he wanted to talk about Tridentine mass and praying for the conversion of Jews.
Word Verification: hfxxbcz, the sound of a drunken djinn burping in Polish.
And look at America - the perceived threat of terror is a great political tool, innit. A threat is as serious as peoples perception of it - if you tell a kid there is a bogeyman under the bed, he won't sleep. Tell a Berber there is an evil Djinn and bad things will happen - maybe it's the stress created from the threat thnt makes people more accident prone or depressed - who knows. But don't talk to me about trucks - gottit?
Until recently, you would only find the djinns in Muslamic countries, but now they have been coming over here inside all those filthy illegal immigrants, spreading disease, Allah, germs, terrorism, and cleaning ladies. The only way to get rid of them is repatriation or conversion; perhaps we could have a dual ceremony with them and the Jews at the same time.
Trucks. Trucks, trucks, trucks. Trucks trucks trucks trucks trucks. Trucks!
Word Verification: crcikmm, a broken neck with Maltesers.
Philip - that is extremely juvenile. I think we are going to be friends.
A. An Amish drive-by shooting
"clip clop clip clop clip clop clip clop, PING TWANG OUCH"
(an arrow being fired and meeting its mark)
I just googled - they do use guns, the violent sons of bitches. Honestly I depsair of Americans- they are so fucking inconsistent - even ones in victorian dress with mutton chops and everything made out of wattle and daub.
For god's sake, girl, isn't a djinn akin to a guardian angel? The priest may be off the mark, perhaps, not understanding the elements of Islam. But, again, what do I know? Though I must bestow my humble, human blessing upon you for having an accommodating upper alimentary canal with regard to male genitalia. In some circles, you're divinely unique!
In an effort to clarify some habits of the Amish, it was told to me, ions ago, most of them are closeted wankers. ---If only those flies upon their walls could write a tell-all!
