What a kind, loving display. Are all Imams’ so sweet? Can you hear the conversation? The one between the school principal and the mother of a disobedient child? I imagine it would go something like this;
PRINCIPAL: I’m sorry Mrs. Matar, but your little Suzy was caught in class with a Snickers bar.
MOTHER: Where is my little Suzy, bring her to me. Suzy… Suzy… (sobbing)
PRINCIPAL: Her Teacher, Mr. Abad, caught her red handed. She was sitting at her desk, holding the candy. When Mr. Abad asked her to hand it over she took a bite.
MOTHER: I do not believe this!
PRINCIPAL: It’s true. He even warned her about breaking the fast, the dishonor she would do to Allah and the punishment for such an evil deed.
MOTHER: I see. I am sorry. I should have never questioned you as you are a Man and wise beyond my ability to understand.
PRINCIPAL: Here is your little Suzy. Now take her home… be gone. Take this, her bike bag, her cell phone… and here is Suzy and her head is in this bag over here.
PRINCIPAL: Oh, by the way. Mrs. Matar? I don’t see your husband or a male guardian has visited with you today.
MOTHER: No, I was told the situation was serious and I rushed right over.
PRINCIPAL: I’m sorry, Mrs. Matar, but it is a sin for you to walk unchaperoned and we will have give you 300 lashes now.

Our satire of other faiths is much more frequent and often more severe, so... please, lighten up, Francis.
