Religion is stupid

They where so close. They didn't like the Turkish head scarf ban, so a court case was brought the arguments where put forward and a judgement given on the merits of the case. Then they shot up the judge as they didn't like the judgement.

So close, just drop that last stage and I think they might finally gain entry to the twentieth century.
