Muslims ticked at Pope.

Blah Blah Blah. And in the story is the following sentence:

"Islam forbids drinking alcohol and requires non-Muslims to pay a head tax to safeguard their lives if conquered by Muslims. They are exempt if they convert to Islam"

Well guess what? I aint payin' no head tax.

What if conversion to Islam came with free fried chicken, a lifetime supply of tacos, and a guarantee that Hillary Clinton would never get into the Oval Office?

I bet that promise is how they get people to sign up for the Republican Party too.

The Pope can never win.
The Pope during the holocaust was chastised for not coming out against the Nazi regime (which he actually did early on, but no one was really listening).
Now he talks about some differences with Islam and other religions, even earlier versions of Catholism, and his life and all Catholics are now on a hit list.

whatever.

WARNING:

Don't do it!

First it's a "head tax," and next thing you know you're slammed with "arms, legs, hands and feet taxes." Those Republicans are sneaky that way.

Unless you're a REALLY RICH Republican-then you get to pay NO taxes.

Forget the body part tax; I'm concerned about the "no alcohol" clause.

If I want to pay $7 for a glass of wine . . . I should be left alone in my insanity, dammit!

Am I the only person who, when confronted with the phrase "head tax", immediately thought it meant --

Oh, never mind.

Well, it's like the saying goes: God made Lamont and Eve, not Lamont and Steve...

Works for me -- I just saved $10.00.

Wow, $10. Pretty cheap.
