    That carrot looks raw in more ways than the obvious. Excessive raw carrot causes a pain in the gut.

    FD, you have nailed it.

    We need people in Govt who can show leadership & educate people about tolerance.

    We needed them at the time of Tampa and we need them even more now.

    Just the thought of creeping sharia vegetables keeps me awake at night.

    Utterly correct, FDOTM, especially frame four.

    These sort of people might be depicted as Leeks, still have some snap, best cooked and living in rows. Almost impossible to educate out of intolerance because they love thinking these dreadful thoughts.

    Leeks, piss off!

    Yeah, religio-racism-intolerance is bad, no doubt.

    On the other hand, I still have a problem with the warm and fuzzy nice people choosing to believe in the Islamic teapot in the sky insisting that animals they eat be killed with a knife slashed through their throat. I know there’s other Middle Eastern Teapot followers (ahem) doing the same, but I guess that’d be off topic.

    Do you struggle with that? I don’t think I want to condone it as ‘cultural enrichment’ in the name of being nice to the religious.

    I want to see the day where swearing on any bronze age or medieval religious text is laughed at and parodied.

    Now, on the other topic, some are expecting to be taught by the government & media on what is right & wrong. That is more the totalitarian model of government. In a democracy, we elect those who *represent us*, not those who teach us how to think. If we want our leaders to be more enlightened, we have to vote more enlightened people in. As the quote goes ‘You elect the government you deserve’.

    Peter @ 23. The cutting of the lamb is symbolic - just as the wine and bread is for Christians.
    FD - ‘Mussos’ as a label is as effective as ‘Christian’ is for covering the different groups such as Quakers, EB, Catholics and C of E.

    I think I’ve seen that carrot posting on the white pride hate site stormfront. Those boneheads love a handful of rupert’s opinion writers.
    I’m still not sure where the “line that can’t be crossed” re racism is for News Limited? Apparently punters can’t write offensive Facebook posts on Husic’s page, but rupert’s hacks can be celebrated by the knuckle draggers.

    So the carrot has learned that racism will make him sick will and it will make Husic as well. Sorting out which is the bigger problem, racism or a pathological lack of humanity, will assist in arriving at a resolution that will be the lesser of two weevils.

    It’s a bit off the topic of the cartoon but just for the record: all halal slaughtered beef, sheep and chooks in Australia are stunned first. The main physical difference is that the halal slaughtered animal must not have been killed by the stun. A benefit of this is that with the heart still beating the meat is better drained of blood.

    Well noted, Andybob.
    I for one have certainly learnt less about vegetable psychology from studying all the botanical textbooks, and so much more about it from some of the more off-the-cuff writings I’ve encountered in the course of my longterm enrolment in the University of Hard Bathroom Walls.

    For religious fundamentalists to insist on a three to five thousand year old form of butchery is bad enough. For the Australian government to have let our jobs go-once we could kill our own meat-to the extent we have to export live animals is grotesque. Worse, by selling these wretched animals to be butchered in primeval circumstances, in the name of religion is utterly amoral.

    As for the fuss over Ed Husic swearing on the Qu’ran it reflects dreadfully on the Oz people. People who believe a religious book carries greater authenticity that their own word are selling themselves short.

    Andybob - there’s a web site called something like the worst of perth which has turned bathroom wall photography - and lots of other eyesores into an art form. They have millions of views - people don’t seem to be able to get enough awful cr*p to look at.

    As a common sewer of twarlet humoir, - when the Hadron thing was in its apogeewhizz - I found their high speed pen1s collider graffiti amusing.

    MIKE SMITH: At the recent swearing-in the non-religionists (not including Ed Husic) took an oath of Affirmation. I’m not a hundred percent sure but I believe the same thing applies in a law court. Cheers V
