Have you ever been awakened early in the morning by a Jehovah’s Witness?
Maybe you’ve been accosted by a crazy street preacher with a megaphone?
You turn on your TV, and there’s Tammy Bakker, Jerry Falwell, that
Reverend Scott guy who never sleeps. Has it ever dawned on you that heaven
might be a very annoying place?

From the recent MeFi post on Terry Schiavo:

"So, the same entity that rubber stamps a war that kills thousands of people needs to take specific steps to try and save the life of one lady who has been in a vegetative state for over a decade."

-- edgeways

I pretty much agree with his/her statement.  At least, that is part of a broader context in which I see this whole issue.

Dungeons and Dealers:
GM: Yeah, there was PCP in that pot.
EDDIE: Great, that means I get a +6 to Brawl and all my damage is delayed until I come down, right? I’m going to beat the living shit out of this guy.
GM: Sorry, but you know full well Potheads aren’t allowed any violent actions. If you were playing a Pro Athlete, you could use Roid Rage, but you aren’t.

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN— Mullah Muhammad Omar, head of the Taliban movement, in a press statement released yawm-ul-ahad to the "Fourth-World Warlord Gazette" announced both the founding of the "Taliban Museum and Mortar Range of the Fine Arts," and his intention to pursue his "one true dream" – becoming an artist.

Stating that the Taliban "needs to open to self-statement, and find the beauty within," Mullah Omar indicated the museum’s first exhibit would be "Death to Dharma." A provocative piece of performance art, "D2D" evokes the wonder that the wonders of the world aren't so wonderful at all, especially when blown to smithereens by Kaytusha rockets.

"In case Buddha didn’t get all of his chunky arse out of Afghanistan 1300 years ago, this semiotic work signals him to keep on moving" said one Talib shrapnel-sculptor, not giving his name; "we'll send him sky rocketing back to Dar-ul-Jahiliya."

Critics have raved about the originality of mixing fusillades of fireworks with ancient Gandhara stone, some going so far as to proclaim the advent of a new movement. Said art historian Jacques Hoffer, "I think what we have here is a Neo-rubble movement. Total alienation from modernity, and indeed, all of history to boot. An aesthetic theory that puts a premium on hirsute men, while fetishizing cloaked women as suicides and prostitutes. Reminiscent of Dadaism, Die Kunst ist tot. All art is dead, or should be murdered, except that birthed by purifying pyrotechnics." Asked to comment on Hoffer’s insight, Mullah Omar replied only "Yaba-daaba-doo!"
