I don't know. Perhaps it might be something to do with this line:What has religion to do with this?
And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
Of course its no secret that a sizable proportion of those who identify as Christians in the real world and on here have a very pick-n-mix attitude to their faith. I'm pretty sure that sneering at the defeated and the 'least of [us]'' is a very un-Christian concept. No mention of her kids, they may not be going back to FGM but life for women in Nigeria is fraught with dangers nonetheless. I don't believe its our business to try to fix the world, but neither do I think it's exactly funny to make poor jokes either.
Why don't we put up a picture of her daughters and have some hilarious comments about the type, frequency and severity of sexual assault that they will now be at massive risk of? Won't that be hilarious? The woman should have gotten pregnant, she might have gotten massive numbers of a la carte Christians onside, at least until she gave birth.
I agree with you but that doesn't mean we have to have a 'victory' thread dressed up as 'humour'.a good sense of humour is required when you look at the laughable way Ireland has in dealing with illegal immigration. How much did it cost to deal with this case? I think the citizens of the Flawed State are totally entitled to vent after these scandels.
We have the usual 'I'm not racist, BUT.....' crowd on hiding their petty spite behind humour. Just to be clear, I think it was right she was deported, I think she got some incredibly stupid people onside with her lies, we do not need people like her, we are already overflowing with dishonest leeches. Perhaps I should start making jokes about people who find themselves having to live next door to immigrants. Perhaps we can laugh at the fact that they are not affluent enough to move someone else. How funny do you think that will be? (Not at all, but I am sure my point is clear.)
