jojofolkagogo The Wisdom of Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens (154* d) RE: The Wisdom of Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens 30 Jun 06


Hello, nice thread... (well it could be !)

The epic story of the introduction of the mormon faith at Utah just happens to be TRUE ....

but I have to say, as is usual, the media (the silver screen) just LOVE to glorify things just a tad .... which makes for slushy movies, sad and joyous, etc - something to write home about and talk about, it is all part of the hype to get you to go see ...

but it DID happen ...

Getting back to Cat Stevens - well, the hateful post by Penguin Egg, I think just needs to be ignored - it certainly is a shame that some people feel such hate - everyone has a right to their own views of course - but generally I think the point is that Cat is a man of CHARISMA, which I think Jesus was, people listened to him, he had something concrete to say, and he (Cat) says it beautifully is some of his songs.

If/when anyone tries to promote peace they tend to get a slogging, look at MLK, JFK, etc - history shows that MEN just love to hate and fight generally, I think its in their genes. (just watch boys at play ...they always push each other around, bump, hit, scratch, berate, all the time - just WATCH !)...

I have THREE albums of Cats - Mona Bone, and I cant remember the other two, but AL THREE had some wonderful songs on them, I really MUST get them out again and have a listen, its been some time ...

thanks for the reminder ...
Jo-Jo
