The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.

Some thoughts for the Bishops:
"Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!" says the LORD. Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who care for my people: "You have scattered my flock, and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the LORD. Jerimiah 23

Let not many of you become teachers, my brethren, for you know that we who teach shall be judged with greater strictness. James 3

Thus says the Lord GOD: Ho, shepherds of Israel who have been feeding yourselves! Should not shepherds feed the sheep? You eat the fat, you clothe yourselves with the wool, you slaughter the fatlings; but you do not feed the sheep. The weak you have not strengthened, the sick you have not healed, the crippled you have not bound up, the strayed you have not brought back, the lost you have not sought, and with force and harshness you have ruled them. So they were scattered, because there was no shepherd; and they became food for all the wild beasts. My sheep were scattered, they wandered over all the mountains and on every high hill; my sheep were scattered over all the face of the earth, with none to search or seek for them. "Therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: As I live, says the Lord GOD, because my sheep have become a prey, and my sheep have become food for all the wild beasts, since there was no shepherd; and because my shepherds have not searched for my sheep, but the shepherds have fed themselves, and have not fed my sheep; therefore, you shepherds, hear the word of the LORD: Thus says the Lord GOD, Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my sheep at their hand, and put a stop to their feeding the sheep; no longer shall the shepherds feed themselves. I will rescue my sheep from their mouths, that they may not be food for them. "For thus says the Lord GOD: Behold, I, I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out." Ezekiel 34

Holy crap! Caribou Coffee is 87.8% owned by crazy Islamists! Lileks furnishes the details.
The Islamic investment group employs a scholar to ensure that their actions are religiously permitted. This Scholar says that, well basically the whole muslim spiel about women, no mixing of the sexes- no working- one man is worth two women- etc. ACK! Well not that I drink much coffee but I sure won't be drinking Caribou any time soon.

Update: Now instapundit is covering it too. I sent an email to Caribou and got the form-letter response. It said that "that dude is totally an outside consultant to this other company. we totally don't belive that stuff. we're only owned by First Islamic. we are so totally committed to being totally against terrorism." (to paraphrase.) I'm not concerned about terrorism I'm concerned about racist sexist brutes making money from my mocha.
