Not Rex: On praying for Paris... sort of.

rabble is expanding our Parliamentary Bureau and we need your help! Support us on Patreon today!

Keep Karl on Parl

The Paris atrocities have unleashed the worst in our nature and become an excuse to deny refugees access to safer lives and to let Islamophobia run rampant.

Don't pray for Paris, and passively march behind the drum beat of war. If you really want to help Paris, dig deep for your humanity.
