This trailer is for the movie “The Master”, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman. The story is about a new religion called “The Cause” and it’s author creator. A lot of people say that it’s actually based on Scientology and its founder Sci-Fi author L. Ron Hubbard.
“The Master” is coming out this October, and is poised to be a prime runner for many Oscar nominations.

More than 30 MPs have signed on a proposed bill that states that all future laws must comply with Islam before they can be approved into laws. Of course this absurd nonsense and civil rights\liberties nightmare is spearheaded by the one and only Hayef.
I’m not a fan of his nor have any respect for him, so I personally just going to ignore his lead just like he ignores our national anthem.
But as we all can expect, a proposed law like this will definitely cause strong and radical reactions and commenting from both backers and opposers. These following comments, all by the same person, are my favorite so far on this subject. I don’t know if the guy\girl is being sarcastic or is actually serious. Either way, some of the changes are deadly funny.

This painting is called “My Harem in Heaven” by local Artist Dr. Shurooq Amin.
Yesterday was the opening of her new art show “It’s a Man’s World“ in Salhiya Complex. But sadly, that show was suddenly shut down by authorities.
Someone complained that Shurooq’s art show was pornographic and insulting to the general taste and decorum. The fact that Dr. Shurooq is a respected professor at prestigious Kuwait University made no difference whatsoever against the complaint.
Surooq’s view of art was beyond what authorities view as acceptable. They even threatened to fine her and the gallery owner for showing ‘Mu5ela’ pieces.
The shutdown of Shurooq’s show last night together with today’s proposed 7eshma law is just disgusting.
I’m tired, as a lot of people are, of others dictating what’s socially acceptable. They are not better than us. They are not smarter than us. They are not more Kuwaiti than us. They are not even more respectable people than us.
Kuwait is for all of us. As much as we tolerate their so-called-religious-moralistic beliefs, they’ve got to respect our more tempered and civilized views of what these are.
I’m a Kuwaiti, I’m a Muslim; but I still enjoy beautiful art like Shurooq’s, and beautiful sites like people wearing bathing suits and having fun on the beach. These people look so happy, comfortable, and relaxed; that they inspire tranquility, peace, and tolerance to us all.
I Am A Kuwaiti.
This Is My Country.
I Love Shrooq’s Art.
I Love People Wearing Bathing Suits On The Beach.
I Love People Hanging Out and Having Fun.
I Have The Right To Live In A Tolerant Society.
Like seriously, do you compreender what I’m saying?
This Is My Country!
Not Yours Alone.
If you don’t, then feel free to join all the other hypocrite dimwits we got in parliament and ministries council.
I have said this before.
It’s the fact that we have money is what’s making us act so carelessly about our country. We can afford to be hypocritical. We all fly out every chance we get. And for what: To do and enjoy the exact sort of thing we preach against here in our own country.
That’s why Kuwait was a lot more tolerant throughout old history. I hope we continue to be a rich country, but I also hope we can be tolerant again. A country who’s every segment feels free and comfortable in. We are tired from what a few force us to accept. We are a “Many”. We can win this.
This isn’t the time to be hypocritical at all. It’s the time of standing up for what we believe, of stating the obvious: Kuwait has lapsed decades into the past, just because of a few ugly loud voiced extremists.
So stop listening to them. It’s time to take action and stand for progress and development, stand for our historical traditions:

This guy is even crazier than Hamza Khashgari of a few weeks back. This new guy, Humoud Saleh Al-Amri, went way further than Hamza in his insults, talking about our Prophet Mohammad in a very derogatory and insulting language.
He claims to have converted to Christianity a few years back and had asked the authorities reflect his conversion. That doesn’t give him the right to insult Islam or our prophet, plus it really just basically means he’ll most probably be executed in Saudi.
He’s been in and out of jail a few times over stuff like this before, but I think this is his worst work yet. For his sake, I hope he turns out to be a certified mental nutcase, otherwise he’s in for some tough trouble [Source].

Nabeel Al-Fadhel promised to read Sorat Al-Baqara before he takes his parliamentary oath. And guess what. He did just that yesterday. Of course, he didn’t read it properly, and made a few errors. But frankly, I commend him for just reading Quran out loud. What I’ve heard about Al-Fadhel is that he’s very not-so-religeous, so I think he irritated his opponents big time reading The Quran.
