Here's some theological dissonance

Evidently, Louis Farrakhan, theoretically a Muslim, is saying that Barack Hussein Daley Obama is "the Messiah." I believe that would be blasphemy not just for Islam (which strictly speaking doesn't believe in one, let alone refer to one with a Hebrew name), but also for Judiasm and Christianity.

Calypso Louie should be very glad that burning heretics at the stake is no longer in vogue!

Well, Farrakhan's not actually a Muslim, he's a Black Muslim, which despite the name is not a racially specific subset of Islam, but itself a heretical offshoot (a cult vis-a-vis Islam, if you will.)

Of course, I don't think Black Muslims seek a Hebrew-designated Messiah either, but he's already deemed a heretic, so what's a little more theological creativity?

The funny thing is, I thought some of Farrakhan's followers thought that he was the...whatever-you-call-it-in-Islam-like-the-Messiah. Fortunately, the whole Black Muslim scheme, particularly under Farrakhan, has become such an absurdist sideshow of a religion that the dissonance will go down as smooth as silk.

Removing the noggin of a heretic is still en vogue in many Sharia countries. Hmmm, maybe we could arrange a trip for him?

Actually, he's at least been to Libya. But I don't want him dead; I just pray that people would wake up and see him for what he is.
