WHY NOT JUST A RED CARD?

TODAY’S WORRY

In another edition of “You Must Believe the Way I Tell You To Believe or Else,” a businessman and a girl were killed yesterday in Somalia for watching the World Cup.  The hard-line Muslim fighters there have banned watching television and opened fire after a crowd of teenagers defied their orders to leave a hall where a businessman was showing Tuesday’s Germany-Italy match on satellite television. 

Anyone who reads my blog knows I am not a fan of organized religion.  Whether it’s the Hundred Years War, the Inquisition, witch-burning or the Crusades,  there’s a lot of bad that’s been done in the name of belief.  But killing people for watching something as trivial as soccer shows that extremism has reached a new low.
