In Response To: THE MESSAGE IS NOT FROM GEORGE CARLIN (Zubair )

Thanks brother Zubair!

George Carlin has been my favourite comedian for years, and I should have spotted the misattribution of the subject message to him.

As for the “Bill Gates’ Rules”, I had received this email many years ago, and since the words hadn’t seemed at all like Gates’, I had checked out Snopes.com and learnt that the list was indeed Charles Sykes’.

Similarly, a message entitled “AN IMAAM WITH GUTS” is circulating these days, which talks about an “Imam” called Joe Wright, a supposed leader of a mosque in Kansas, speaking to the Kansas Senate about the weakening of morality in the US. When I checked Snopes, it said that Wright is not a Muslim Imam, but a senior pastor of the Central Christian Church in Wichita, KS.

That’s why the Qur’an asks us to verify things before we reach conclusions :)

Wassalam
Umar
