This Land is Not Your Land, This Land is My Land

J Continuum is on a bit of a hiatus, pending our return to the United States. Time permitting, we may "replay" here some more Slate rants, but in the mean time, here's something to keep all of you with as low a bullshit tolerance level as me.

From today's Slate's Today's Papers:

The NYT notices something that is finally bringing together some Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Jerusalem: homophobia. A few leaders from the three religions made a joint appearance decrying a planned 10-day "WorldPride" event slated for the city. "We can't permit anybody to come and make the Holy City dirty," said one Muslim cleric. "This is very ugly and very nasty to have these people come to Jerusalem." One fine American rabbi who helped organize yesterday's announcement concurred, explaining, "This is not the homo land, this is the Holy Land."


Isn't reactionary homophobia bad enough without tortured puns?
