Does bullying Muslims never get tiring, especially at this time of good will to all men?


Apparently not is would seem.

Christmas is a westernised Christian holiday.

Why not ban something that goes against your beliefs, Christians do not have to live there if they do not wish.


By that ruling, would it therefore back your argument (if you have one) that Muslim celebrations should be banned from X (your town/the West/UK/US/EU)?
Just out of interest really, because I know some would be inclined to agree..
To woodwardjr, this post was in no way 'bullying'.

3 D's of Disseminating Disinformation if I ever seen it. Dismiss, Debunk, and Demean are the Muslim supporters favorite method when issues like this are brought up.

What is being seen is a truth that has been hidden and thanks to todays lightening fast media we can see how great Sharia Law works at controlling their populations.

For those who think it is easy to leave Brunei/Mynamar many of the Christians are minority and poor

I feel sorry for you.

You have no concept of "the world" obviously.

Other sovereign nations have different customs, different laws and different ways of doing things. It is their business what laws they pass

I'm surprised that someone who is capable of posting on ATS hasn't figured that out.

People don't have to do things *your* way.

You are using ignorance as an excuse to spread hate.

BTW, you missed this from the BBC article.


Celebrations will be allowed at UN compounds and bases for African Union peacekeepers, who are in the country to back the government's fight against the al-Qaeda-linked militants.

"Those celebrations are not in any way related to Islam," an official at the religious affairs ministry said.


It has very little to do with Jesus, as well.


Foreigners are free to mark the Christian holiday in their own homes, but hotels and other public places have been prohibited from marking the day.



Mogadishu's mayor, Yusuf Hussein Jimale, told the BBC that such gatherings might also be a target for the Islamist al-Shabab group that has targeted hotels in the city in the past.

Celebrations will be allowed at UN compounds and bases for African Union peacekeepers, who are in the country to back the government's fight against the al-Qaeda-linked militants.


There is a lot more to this story than what is presented by the OP. I'd be curious if they view Christmas as commercialized nonsense that has nothing to do with religion, or if they are trying to actively persecute Christians.

We need a lot more context before we knee-jerk about the evils of Sharia Law.

Oh but please remember Islam supporters will tell you it is just a small fringe of radical Islamic that are that way it is not the Majority like the Muslim in England.

England has the second highest radicalization of Muslims next to Germany.

Ok maybe Christmas has pagan origins but its still a Christian holiday. So you endorse persecuting minorities? I swear as long as Christians are the ones being mistreated atheists find no problem. Its so hypocritical

What this does show is that Sharia Law, when implemented, destroys the freedoms of minorities. You have to be Muslim or you get taxed, stoned, forced to convert, or imprisoned.

No, i don't claim Islam as the bad boogieman out to get everyone but I don't particularly ever wanna visit a majority Muslim country.

It is not just a suppression of a religion it is a suppression of the whole country seeing that it would mean an economic boom that otherwise leaves this poor nation even poorer.

Anytime a relgion represses another one no matter which one we should be upset.


Just like Christianity repressed pagan religions in Europe and the native American beliefs?

If Christians are okay with gay marriage being illegal then what's the big deal with Muslim countries on the other side of the world making Christmas illegal? Both are based on cultural traditions after all.


False equivalence.

How do Muslims feel about gay marriage by the way?

The same point can be made for Muslims in Western cultures since everything in the Quran contradicts western values.

Western values are irrelevant. What matters is that our entire outlook is informed by the constitution. In that document we have freedoms that are granted to all, not just those that believe differently than the people that wish to define "western values".

There countrys.

They can do what they want long as they dont try and spread beyond there borders.

I honestly dont see how you or anyone can deny the so called "progressive left" is doing their best to phase the holiday out over time.

Also, it's "their countries", not "there countrys".


Grammar nazi

I see a lot of posts saying "its their country they can do what they want" or "country founded on muslim beliefs". You know I actually agree with everyone saying that. They can ban what they want, even Christmas because like was said before its their country founded on their beliefs.

Well America is our country founded mostly on Christian/catholic beliefs.....We want to ban muslims because it's our country and they are culturally different. That's ok too right?????

Yep, and Catholics did to Jewish in Spain etc. We can't accuse just one religion all the time. No religion should suppress other religions.
