Those darned Christian Crusaders...

...defiling everything in their wake...

The remains of a Turkish diplomat buried in Canada were reportedly forcibly removed from a local cemetery after a prominent Christian family said they weren’t comfortable praying next to a Muslim grave.

Arthur MacDonald, described by the paper as a businessman belonging to “one of Toronto’s leading families,” said he objected to the fact that Mr. Dayioglu had been buried next to his mother and his cousin.

"My Irish Catholic grandmother wouldn't be buried anywhere besides a "Catholics Only" cemetery...right here in Toronto."
Hmmm, there's an equivalence... your grandmother... modern day Turkey.

I think that's my point, you dumb bunny.

Sorry, it was to early this morning, I wonder if I could get a person of x faith removed from lying by family grave. X meaning anything but mine.
We now know your will means what a Judge thinks it means, you can't be buried by someone who might complain in the future.
But, congratulations to all those Ont families and communities who came to the aid of stranded passengers.

"nonny-mouse shrieks... My Irish Catholic grandmother..."

well... there's the gold standard for how civil society should be run... your granny.

tell me... how does granny feel about alcohol... or gay or polygamous marriage... or safe-injection sites... or, say... digging up dead bodies?

hmmm... it almost sounds like gran might actually have a lot in common with the jihadis.

government by grandmother... an idea whose time has come.

Yes Neo, nonny's gran would have a problem with polygamy - but I think the jihadis would support it.

Back to the topic: I don't think there are any completely Christian cemeteries left in Turkey - I think the Greek cemeteries have been paved over, plowed up or had buildings built over them.
