Man beheads sleeping man; media also asleep

Let's see here...we have a large knife, blood-curdling screams, the decapitation of an innocent person, and an MSM that's mum on details.

This is just me, but I have a hunch the assailant is not a Christian, nor a Buddhist, nor a Jew, nor a Zoroastrian, nor a Hindu, nor a Shinto animist, nor an agnostic, nor a Sikh, nor a Bahai, nor a Wiccan, nor a Mormon.

Then again, even if we learn that the murderer shouted "Allahu Akhbar!" beforehand, the MSM will decline to call it a terrorist act.

"And he didn't even sweat! What a man!"

What a workout. What a messiah. What a crock.

Another euroreporter's heart skips a beat.

Heavy Metal monk

Some people will object to what this monk is doing, and to the distance he puts between his stage act and overt evangelization.

To me, it's not much different in nature (although the externals are wildly different) from selling jams and bad art.

When asked, he strongly affirms his faith and the zeal he has for his priesthood. How many parish priests will ever come across the typical audience member of a heavy metal concert?

Heavy metal isn't my cuppa, but neither is rap, the musical performance genre of choice for Father Stan Fortuna.

Something about being all things to all men. And all gangstas. And all Led Zep fans.
