Did you know that by law, Muslims cannot be appointed as sweepers in the land of the pure? This interesting titbit - that I almost forgot to share - I found in an article in Thursday's edition of the Daily Times, Karachi page. It's amazing how a land created (or-so-the-fairy-tale-tells-us) to escape religious persecution and discrimination is so hell bent on practicing just that in every single possible way. It's disturbing how, on so many levels, these practices are so blatantly 'wrong' that they serve only to stamp in yet another nail into a coffin already closed so tight the corpse within would have asphyxiated by now - were it not for the fact that it is already dead.
I really wonder if I've lost all hope. And on dark days, I fear that I truly have.
