All Hail the Teapot!

In Malaysia, according to the Telegraph, a 57 year old woman has been sentenced for worshipping a giant teapot (pictured). Her crime is to convert from Islam to teapot-worshipping and this is forbideden in Malaysia under sharia law (what the Archbishop of Cantebury thinks of this is anybody's guess). The woman says the teapot signififies the purity of water and "love pouring from heaven". Completely bonkers, of course, but quite sweet in a way and no more bonkers than any other relegion. Do these fruitcake sharia judges realise how utterly ridiculous - not to say how small-minded and nasty - they make themselves look? Probably not; they are intoxicated by bigotry and nonsense.
