Happy Burka Hallowe'en

Societal values are pushed / squashed by political activity. Is the influence of religion increasing? Is skepticism being deemphasized? Help us understand it all...

Happy Burka Hallowe'en

Postby zilch » Tue Oct 31, 2017 3:51 pm

As some of you may have heard, the burka is now outlawed in public here in Austria, along with any other face covering. So far, a couple of burka'd women have been cited, along with several bicyclists with scarves over their mouths, some street musicians with masks, and one penguin. Hallowe'en has been specifically excused from this law. I'm expecting all kinds of Muslim women in burkas ringing our doorbell tonight.

Have a good pagan festival, fellow smrties! Cheers from rather cold Vienna, zilch

OK, you're going to have to explain the one penguin.

A penguin mask it was. I find penguins to be pretty sneaky characters. After all, it's the laser-armed NWO-trained army of seven million penguins who wait behind the ice wall surrounding Antarctica, making sure that all the flat Earthers trying to photograph the edge don't return.
