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...


I bet if I looked into the eyes of this religious nutter I would see the typical blank stare of the mindlessly indoctrinated.

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

Well...I had something negative to say and decided not to until I read your post. So here it goes.

Hey OP...don't eat the chocolate and check the snow-globe for a faint ticking sound.

lol, thats the reverse psyops. Theres no need to fear people of different religions or cultures either. How about people treat each other friendly all year, instead of just on holy days.

Instead of knocking, saying hi, were nice people and were muslim or christian or whatever and happy celebrate day…

heres a "card".


A false front, they are putting on a show on a given day, performing a given ritual and giving a non gift.

meh, thats nice.

You have been here long enough to know the answer. Not the symptom, not the detailed pick it apart...but the actual problem.

Humans suck!

Most people are born into religions and grow up with them as family traditions rather than as things they have serious convictions about and they get upset with people who criticize the values and traditions of their families. It's totally understandable and isn't exclusive to Muslims.

I've had numerous Muslims in my life in different sorts of relationships. They have been fine. Ethnicity is a lot like race. Once the initial novelty wears off, human relationships are about personality and the other stuff is forgotten.

Humans suck!

Not if we behave like human beings.

No labels, no divisions, just human.

The weight of everyones programming is so heavy upon their humanity. The world screams at us to be different, better, more than, win, swell with pride, nationalism, religious fervor, competitive spirit.

Beautifully written, a good reminder that Muslims are humans like all of us not some crazy "terrorists" that the media makes them out to be. Happy Holidays!

Hey there ipsedixit - that's so true! Tradition - it's got a lot of power. I used to get upset inside at an atheist family member celebrating Christmas. This person used to do everything they could to try to upset me about my faith and then has a Christmas tree????

But of course when one looks at the history of how Christmas began, etc I realized it has nothing to do with trees and who gets to celebrate this or that. Nothing belongs to my "me". It is simply tradition. And Christmas is a man made tradition.

When one delves deep into what love truly is all the human trimmings fall away and there is only you and your God, or you and what you believe in or not. And love, which we throw about so loosely and casually and almost flippantly, can be the force that makes us more than we are.

Exactly dogstar23 - we can't paint every other person with the same brush and we can't believe the news, we have to be alert and wise and loving. Well said.

I am with you on this. It may be they feel that others are more approachable the one day out of the year. Whatever the reason, go with the flow and accept the kindness I say. And who knows what doors will open.

a reply to: reldra

Exactly Reldra - kind gestures can be such a huge effort for others. And they don't need to do so. Let's just accept it for what it is - an act of kindness extended to another person. Life is too short to think anything past that. These are acts of the old days when you needed each other just to survive the elements, etc. Now we are so closed off from each other. Take care Reldra

Exactly eletheia. And sadly, the media is so controlled and you have to dig and dig to get any of the other side of things or the real truth.

Yes! That one little act might open a world of new friendships, opportunities, awareness.

I look at it this way, a few (perhaps WAY MORE than a few) bad cops make a lot of good cops look bad. The responsibility of going above and beyond to correct correct the image portrayed by the bad cops falls onto the shoulders of the good. The evil in both cases are similar...cold blooded murder, rape, torture of )either mental or physical) exists on both cases. I feel moved when the cops gives a homeless family a place to stay, or the Muslim family shows respect for someone else's beliefs.
So anyway, good on this family. Hopefully we see more of this. We're on the verge of some sort big uprising against either one of these two example of groups of people. Mosques are being burned down or vandalized, I don't think I need to give examples when it pertains to the police force.
