Come Together, Right Now, Over My Silly Stories

A group of Muslim scholars wrote a letter to the Pope, among others, saying that the faiths should really really try to understand each other better. Somehow I don't think this will work. You have groups of people who just believe stupid things trying to grasp which ridiculous story has merit and agreeing that both are just dandy. The Muslims, who think a guy rode up to Heaven on a horse with wings, think that the Catholics, who believe a guy walked on water, got killed, came back from the dead - all after performing Copperfield-like miracles - need to get together on the issues.

This reminds me of that episode of The Simpsons where Skinner and Krabappel are holed up in the school and wont' come out until their love is celebrated. Supernintendo Chalmers asks with scorn dripping, "Oh yeah, that'll do a lot...who do you want to talk to first? The guy in the bee suit or the guy with the bone in his hair?"
