"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


a miracle

Kelso's column on the Hyde Park/Austin Area Interreligious Ministries flap is hilarious. Favorite quotes:

"...what I can't understand is why it wouldn't rent it out to a prayer group because it includes local Muslims. Muslims don't bring in no hoochie-coochie dancers. Muslims don't even drink. If you took a 12-pack of Milwaukee's Best and had a bet on who could hold out the longest from breaking into it, I'd take the Muslims over the Baptists and give you the points.

"...But last week, Hyde Park Baptist told the group they couldn't use the Quarries, mostly because of the Muslims. So the prayer gathering took place Sunday at Temple Beth Israel instead. You had Jews and Muslims in the same place and no barbed wire. So in a sense, the Baptists performed a miracle."
