Though I Be Rude in Speech

God, as we know, has strong opinions on many subjects, while taking a liberal and tolerant attitude to others. He has no objection to taking a little wine for your stomach's sake, for instance; but if you take too much and are witnessed by your son in a compromising attitude, that son shall put forth only hewers of wood and drawers of water for the white folks. Equally sanely, God doesn't mind an occasional rape, massacre or genocide, but He does not take at all kindly to profane language. Hence, the Almighty has warned the president of the Philippines to stop his epithets, or else be killed in a plane crash. Summary executions in the name of the War on Chemical Heaven remain, however, acceptable in His sight.

    Not particularly à propos of this (but Asia all the same), I hadn't realised that Theresa May was Korean. She now seems to have become a 'letter-of-comfort woman' for the Japanese.

    Considering her enthusiasm for the good old populist Conservative values of self-reliance and independence, I should have thought her spiritual heritage rather obvious. And it is rather distasteful to compare her to the sexual victims of Imperial Japan who, unlike our beloved and enlightened Warden, lacked the pluck and gumption to ensure that others got screwed instead of themselves.
