Naik in the Grass

Get yer tickets for Journey of Faith, Toronto's Third Annual Islamic Conference, July 2-4. This year's theme is--wait for it--"the Holy Quran" (what are the odds, eh?). The featured speaker is one Dr. Zakir Snaik, er, Naik, who's quite famous in his neck of the world for preaching the kind of stuff gets that gets the faithful hot and bothered charged with ardor (you can read about some of it here); Dr. Naik's Peace TV is helping defray the cost of the event (no problem there since its costs are defrayed by the deep-pocketed Wahhabis).

Update: Infidels are invited, too.

Update: The perfect theme song?

Update: A more animated version of the song.

Update: Definitely not on the conference agenda is
a searching reevaluation of the meaning and continued relevance of material from the Qur’an and Sunnah that devalues and dehumanizes women, and [a] call in no uncertain terms for Muslims to reject explicitly and definitively the literal meaning of such texts, now and for all time to come.
