"Top blog/Renato Obeid's World/Today's pick: This rambling weblog is worth reading not so much for its satirical posts but more for its insight into the minutiae of life in Lebanon, including the etiquette of road accidents and how to hire a taxi.”

A rape case brought against him was the latest in a series of scandals that have dogged him throughout his two year tenure ( including promoting a child molesting priest whilst he was Anglican Archbishop of Brisbane ) was seen as the straw that broke the camels back.
Ayatollah Hollingworth maintains he is inocent of all the allegations leveled against him and says the rape allegation is a case of "mistaken identity" - i.e he thought he was raping somebody else.
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

Being temporarily depayse I'm not too familiar with all the details and the exact cause - but, from here, it sounds like something about raping a dead woman.

"What hath God wrought?"
(Samuel Morse, first telegraph message, 1844)
Welcome to my world.
This is the New World Order - I ordered a new world from our gracious hosts and now I am trying to bring some order to the new world I have created and invite you to join me.
Whether it is "the best of all possible worlds" is a heavy burden on my shoulders, but is not a burden I have chosen but one that has been thrust upon me by the prevailing circumstances.
Incidentaly, this is meant to be satirical - if you havent worked that out I invite you to fuck off.
I dont really mean that, I'm just trying to chisel my ne plus ultra to morons on my Pillars of Hercules, albeit in the modern vernacular.
Stay tuned for more breaking news - be the last to know at renatobeidsworld.
