One step forward...

Travel on, rider

Just when it seems that President Bush is making impressive strides in bringing the great ungroomed of the Muslim world to Christ through cosmetology, my Prayer Warriors at Little Green Footballs alert me to this stinging setback:
Iranian police have warned barbers against offering Western-style hair cuts or plucking the eyebrows of their male customers, Iranian media said Sunday.

The report by a reformist daily, later confirmed by an Iranian news agency, appeared to be another sign of authorities cracking down on clothing and other fashion deemed to be against Islamic values. ...

The student news agency ISNA quoted a police statement as saying: "In an official order to barbershops, they have been warned to avoid using Western hair styles and doing men's eyebrows."
This is the grossest violation of human rights since Iran forced its Jews to start wearing yellow stars! Choosing one's hairstyle is perhaps the most personal expression of Our Christian Faith that we can undertake, and the suppression of this Sacramental act calls into the question the very possibility of a democratized Middle East that sells us oil on favorable terms.

Liberals, naturally, are silent on this matter, as they typically are when the barbaric nature of Islam impinges on the religious liberties of Christians, which leads me to one conclusion: The Left is going to impose hairdo sharia here in America. While there have been ample reasons for bombing Iran in the past, this alarming development shows us that Freedom's survival is in its eleventh hour, and that immediate and decisive action is of the utmost necessity. Praise Him!
