Whatever. If the flashing lights show up next door, I'll just peer from behind my curtains at them.

Its their way…

Love is essential. It's refreshing to see someone really living their faith, it's beautiful and I'm fortunate enough to see it fairly frequently just out and about or during my work commutes, it's jarring to see so little of it on the internet. I don't believe in a particular faith or God so I truly respect all faiths (though some may not always see that it's hate and hypocrisy that I rage against, nothing else), so in that vein...

A very merry Christmas to you.

I have always loved them - they are the most loving people I have ever met. And I already adore them. I wanted to share to say that we must love each other. Let's hate evil but love one another - always.

Awesome stuff OP...


You ought to watch Todd White's video where he talks about his ice delivery job.

I think you would like it...


See life is short, you're not here to build a reputation, you're here to leave a legacy, life is short, you're here to make Jesus famous. When I delivered ice, I saw between ten and thirty people healed every day, on my job. Did you ever looked in a Muslims eyes? It's not happy, it's not... It ought to break your heart, not make you want to debate with them. It ought to break your heart for them because you have something to give for them. You don't have to prove them wrong... You represent your Jesus and you love them and you will see them come into the kingdom...

There is a Muslim young man at the corner store I frequent. We sometime change information about the different religions.

On Christmas eve he asked me about Christmas in the US...he knows I am not Christian or any religion.

Seems our traditions of going to religious services, giving gifts and gathering with family is much the same as their Eid and another tradition they which has a similar sounding name. The exception is they limit their meals for 30 days I think it is and they do for the poor until the last day when they do the above.

Seems more alike than different except for their giving up their conveniences and doing for the poor for 30 days.

I may have not gotten some of this completely correct, but it is what I remember.

He is a great young man. So personable and friendly to everyone. I am much older but we are able to talk and understand each other regardless the differences in religion and age.

Great story, I'm sure in today's climate, it takes a little extra love and courage to do what they did today. I'm glad they did so, and glad you graciously accepted their kindness.

I believe the extremist anti-Muslims are as rare as the extremist Muslims. On both ends, they're just the tiny minority of ignorant cowards, who unfortunately have the loudest voices (as is typical of ignorant cowards.) Maybe peace and love just needs to be a bit louder to drown out the idiots...if only we could get the media to comply.

Hey if people want to look at me once a year and acknowledge my existence for that brief moment who am I to complain about that? That is even if they avoid me for pretty much the entire other 364 days per year. People barely connect to each other in their own home never mind their neighborhood.

Meh, the neighbors, (Hindus) knocked at the door to say Merry Christmas and give us flowers. They don't give us the time of day any other day.

I went outside right after and encountered them again while walking my dog. I wanted to say something about how I don't observe holidays like others do, I'm not into religion or commercialism, but they didn't look at me and ducked into their house as I walked by.

So 5 minutes made all that difference. Reinforces my notion Christmas is a facade, an expectation of behavior. more ritualistic than sincere. People should be neighbors anyday, friendly gestures aren't universal? Just a wave, a nod or acknowledgment instead of ignoring each other, except for one day or two.

When my mom had a stroke earlier this year, there was ambulances on three occasions at the house, lots of visits by in home care, lots of therapy out front, in plain view with walkers, canes, rehab was extensive. Not once did they show any interest in all that. I know they know, they saw everything.

I know,

bah humbugs


Ya, bah humbug.

They took the time out to do that, when they are normally very private.

I don't speak to a lot of of my neighbors, but even the ones I do-- don't knock on the door to ask about my mom, generally, though they know she was in hospice and then sent home just a couple years ago. We try to keep to ourselves as we mainly complain about the 'nosy' neighbors.

ANY neighbor, knocking on my door to say happy holidays and hand me ANYTHING..even a $1 candle or a card...I would be so happy!

It's nice to hear a story like this, especially considering the heated climate right now. Most people are good people, it's the few bad apples that get all the attention and focus while the majority get lumped in with the few.




Sadly it is those *few bad apples* with hate and control fuelled agendas

that spread chaos, mayhem, suspicion, destruction hate, unrest and death

to everyone, and often including their fellow believer's.

That's nice but it seems really odd that they wish you a merry Christmas when that very concept suggests that Jesus is the Savior by grace and therefore Mohammad is therefore nothing than a violent hooligan promoting the old ways Jesus came to change as the new way to God. Either these Muslims are only Muslims by name rather than actual belief, (that is possible), or they were taking the piss. It's nice but very very odd.

Not a big fan of irony myself...

I AM a big fan of truth though, which is what motivates me to share things such as Todd's info.

If I had even the slightest doubt about the authenticity of Todd's message, I would have voiced it.

My own personal experiences confirm his as well.

One day you'll understand, I can assure you of that.

FYI, the greatest man that ever lived was also accused of being a lunatic as well.

I skipped the video, but watched it after I saw your post. Was there something he said or did in particular that you found offensive? I guess I could have missed something, but I don't think I found any of it offensive. It seemed like something you might hear in any of 1000 full gospel or non-denominational churches and came off pretty benign, at least to me.


Was it because of all the healing talk? Or the fact that they were Muslim? It seemed to me they got something worthwhile out of it, at least according to the story.

I assume that most any non-Christian would just call bull# on anything like this anyway, and that could very well be your reasoning as well. I just got the impression that there was something in particular that you took offense with.

Just thought it was interesting, and was curious as to your thought process.

Thats because you are conditioned to think thats whats important. I prefer people who are friends and neighbors on any days, rainy days, too. Not just far weather traditional fairy tail token friends that would let you drown when you really could use some help.

Someone that ignores their neighbors 364 days of the year then puts on a show one day a year isn't really sincere, imo

Thank you for sharing this!

It speaks to how the vast majority of Muslims honor their beliefs.

For the Christians/Catholics that are out their scared wits of their Muslims neighbors, I suggest shutting off the TV and going next door and meeting themselves. They might have quite the interesting talk about the prophet Jesus and the way they both honor and revere him!

I'm sure they would appreciate that.

There it is, the true state of the Union.

Ive helped several neighbors of mine during their final stages of life, responding to emergencies, driving them back and forth to hospitals, gaining entrance to their homes when they locked themselves out, watching their house, collecting mail, taking care of their pets while they were away or could;t do for themselves.

Elder people here that were dying slowly that needed grocery trips, things repaired in their homes, plants watered, given rides, while they were away convalescing in hospitals. Old fogies that were basically alone late in life, seemingly abandoned by their family, who lived nearby but didn't lend a finger so I had to step up.

I could only know about these things if I had normal relations with them, checking to see if their alright once in a while, calling on the phone, knocking on the door to see if they needed anything. Wheel chair bound, bed ridden people aren't always able to ask for help and just need a little something that could become a disaster if left undone.

The last fifteen years here in this complex have seen 5 people pass on and their homes sold to be taken over by Indians (from India) that are all very friendly with each other, but ignore us. They are taking over the complex. Every time someone moves or passes on they move in.

Now my mom has had a stroke earlier this year and the lady across the street is permanently in the hospital on her death bed and thats two more people that have been friends that I know, cultured relationships with, that will be gone and I'll eventually be out of here too, when my mom passes.

Meanwhile I'm floundering in a sea of Hindu culture and I'm the minority, and trying to remain afloat. Its kind of hard, the people here now don't know what a friend in need I can be if they call on it, everyone I used to know is dead, all my references are in graves. I don't impose though, I mind my own business too (thats very american).

When I was under the bridge I had more means than most there and I also helped them out with a few dollars, a ride, some water, a cig, when I could.

I saw that almost (literally) nobody from the "real world" came under there to help anyone at any time. So much for civilized society.

My neighbors and "homeless' friends appreciated me very much. How would you know that though, we see each other through another window screen.

Sorry for the rundown, I knew it could turn into a defense of what I'm about in the real world because here I'm not the popular opinion… thanks for reading.

I know several Muslims and they like every religion, vary in degree.
Some drink, yes drink. None eat pork, but they smoke and drink.. beer, wine, hard stuff.
So, not all are hell bent on killing non-Muslims... just sayin.
