Blogging in the spiritual battlefield I found this gem from The Muse On The Rock:
I have read, with increasing disbelief, the current news story about the British Teacher incarcerated in the Islamic state of Sudan for allowing her class to name a Teddy Bear Muhammad. The reactions of religious zealots demanding her public flogging, death, or both, is only surpassed by the deafening silence from the supposedly peace-loving majority of Muslims.
My anger is swiftly overtaking my despair. I tried to release some of it in the following verse.
Good Men do Nothing
Such anger boils within me
What right have they to hijack faith
And use it as a stick to beat the innocent?
Projecting their warped hatred of faith
On that icon of love, a child’s teddy bear
Where’s the condemnation for those
That murder in their prophet’s name?
Poisoning Islam blood-lust to kill and maim
The so-called moderates standing piously by
Oblivious to horror, pain and suffering
This evil will take wings and fly
If all good men do nothing.
