Earlier this week, we were treated to a charming, real-life coming-of-age story as we witnessed Louisiana lawmaker Valarie Hodges’s harrowing realization that the term “religious” is not actually synonymous with “Christian,” and that some children in her state might use their school vouchers to attend yucky Muslim schools instead of Christian ones because the commie-atheist-probably-homosexual Supreme Court says we all must be forced to pray to Allah everyday, or something like that.  It was a difficult lesson, but she had to learn the ways of the world at some point.

Geert Wilders, current Dutch parliamentarian and presumed former character actor for the highly specific niche role of "That Evil Hitler Youth Kid Who Treats the Jewish Protagonist Horribly But Eventually Gets His Comeuppance At the End Of the Movie"

But as surely as the sun rises majestically over Christian, God-fearing parishioners’ heads this morning as they make their way to their non-Islamic churches, so too does the new day bring word of more wingnut lawmakers who do not think “freedom of religion” should apply to the scary religions. At the annual Western Conservative Summit in Denver this weekend, Dutch parlia-mentarian Geert Wilders warned the crowd of 1,000+ that if “we do not stop the Islamization, we will lose everything: our identity, our culture, our democratic constitutional state, our freedom, and our civilization.” In fact, Wilders said, unless America wants to be crawling with Muslims like the Netherlands (with its overwhelming 5% Muslim population), it is imperative that America outlaw the construction of any new mosques.

Cowboy hat enthusiast Kevin Grantham, during the curiously named Colorado "Call to Prayer" Day in 2011

Naturally, Colorado state Senator Kevin Grantham, R-Cañon City, was outraged and told Wilders that here in America, we have a little thing called “Freedom of Religion,” which applies to all religions, buddy.

Hahahahahah, just kidding!!!  As you can see, Grantham is fond of wearing cowboy costumes in everyday life, so obviously he didn’t really say anything like that. Grantham actually told the Colorado Statesman that yeah, you know, this Wilders fellow has a lot of totally reasonable ideas that we ought to implement right away:

“Mosques are not churches like we would think of churches. They think of mosques more as a foothold into a society, as a foothold into a community, more in the cultural and in the nationalistic sense. Our churches — we don’t feel that way, they’re places of worship, and mosques are simply not that, and we need to take that into account when approving construction of those.”

See?  Despite the cultural differences, Grantham was ultimately able to find some common ground with his Dutch counterpart.  And that’s what America is all about, really: tolerance.

  47. yes, actually they do that sometimes. they've done that with chowder and flapjack before, too. they show, once in a while, an older episode and say that it's new when it isn't. i guess cartoon network does that to show there are still new episodes so people won't worry about anything ending or anything and so people who haven't seen it get to at the scheduled time for the new episode. i hope this helps!

They keep changing artists through every chapter of the movie so the overall style changes, which SOUNDS badass in theory, if it weren't for the fact that I swear to god the characters are drawn by the? same guy who designs characters for yu-gi-oh. Downfalls good though. Watch that instead
