The Beheading of David Haines

Haine’s Beheading 


Cameron and Obama are blessing David Haines and his family.

Are they priests?

No, they’re just borrowing the robes.


Prayers are not as powerful as bombs;

We don’t need the leaders of the free world mumbling mumbo



Did Haines really think that goody goody work in Syria was more

Important than bringing up his two kids?


How can our leaders make up for Haines’ decapitation.

The knife that cut off his head will be digging into his neck

For a thousand years.


I’m surprised Ward Churchill and Bill Ayers haven’t arisen

From their degradation

To say that Haines deserved it because of our fighting the Islamic state.


What does the Islamic state deserve?


They kill adulterous women,

Decapitate gays,

Murder apostates,

Tax non-Muslims,

And practice Sharia law.


Even without David’s beheading the Islamic State does not deserve to exist.

With the beheading,

Muslims should be drugged before they spread like a deadly disease.
