Would you be OK with stores decorating for a muslim festival?
If muslims had a major celebration like christmas and stores and shop fronts were decorated accordingly (as they are for xmas), would you take offence or not?
Would you tolerate little 'birth of the prophet' scenes, crescent moons atop palm trees, banners in Arabic proclaiming the prophet muhammed's divinity, etc. or would you be pissed?
Hmm?

Well I guess that would depend on if I were in their country or not. In a muslim country they are perfectly entitled to do as they wish without concern about my tolerance level. And when people are in a majority Christian country they can just mind their own business in the same way.

When I can open a shop over there and decorate it with traditional Christmas (Christian) decorations, then they can come here and do the same. How about that?

They can decorate it however they want. I'll just find somewhere else to shop if I don't like it.

I've never heard any Jews complain about Xmas. Only the muzzies.

My policy is...

Respect me and my beliefs...

I'll respect yours...

The places I have been that are ran by Muslims are already highly decorated in their culture and beliefs... If I was offended I would not enter their store.

Yep....it's what intelligent human beings call logic

America started off as a Christian nation....it's in our DNA basically ...

Christmas is a part of our heritage .... just like Muslim holidays are in Saudi Arabia

Do you think that the Saudis should have up Christmas decorations and nativity scenes on every street corner and inside of every dept store?

I don't ....

Okay, seriously, the fact of the matter is that they are FREE to decorate their shops as they wish in both the U.S. and Canada, cause we're cool like that.

If I needed something that was in one of their shops, I could find no where else, then, of course, I'd shop.

It's not any different than the China Towns we have who decorate with their own heritage and we find it cool and different, like we were visiting their homelands. I was being facetiousness in that they do not honour anyone else to be this free in their heritage and beliefs.

So, because I am all about freedoms, I would have no problem with them decorating their shops with their heritage and beliefs in mind.

Maybe they need little Muslim Towns.

Yet everyone is just fine and dandy participating in a pagan ritual every year. Giving gifts, Christmas trees, etc have absolutely nothing to do with Jesus Christ. You're all devil worshippers.

I've seen Ramadan displays in Kroger. You might not recognise it. Its usually centered around good dates.

Look up what the "seven s-things" are that go on the table for Now Ruz (Spring New Year). Goldfish, coins and green herbs are some. Bet you might see a display this spring.

NowRuz displays? LOL things changed since I moved overseas.
But FYI NowRuz is more Zorastrianism and related to Persian peoples of old than islam.

To answer your question:I would be offended.But for different reasons.
Because it would mean that the muslims have turned a religous event into a shopping spree just like Christmas.And we have enough of that shit.

Calling Christmas a religious holiday is just excess crack smoking. The Pope says Dec 25th was not Christs B-Day.
The Xmas tree are pagan
Santa was developed in the 1820s based on the concept of St Nicholas and the Norse god Odin.
And I have yet to find a version of the Gospel where Santa visits Jesus in his crib with reindeer and elves.

Lets not even get into rabbits laying eggs near the time of NowRuz. --the Zorastrian New Year,a time of new beginings and rebirth.

Those of you who take religion too seriously should really spend a few hours researching how they are all related.

Religion is big business.Nothing more.

one of the best thing of living in a cosmopolitan city is the tolerance here in Mexico we all celebrate chinese new years and Hanukkah and End of Ramadan and some other festivities and in New York those and many other festivities from different cultures are holidays and you can park as in Sundays

don't muslims hate christians?---even more then atheist?

I,ve read they kill christians.

why would a judeo christian nation want to have this ? its bad enough we have athesits and special interest taking christian rights away.

do muslim countries allow christmas?
do they promote it?

i;ve also read muslims do not take it well when a muslim learns of the true God , Jesus Christ and converts to christianity----arn;t converts killed?

do you really honestly think once muslims gain the appropriate amount of voting block they will not make moves to join with the atheist to undermine christianity?

isn't Briton being taken over, as is france and others?


why would we want this here?


just asking?


having said all that if a store wants to celebrate anything--they should be able to--freedom and christianity are synonymous ...

however they risk losing all that christan business---we are waking up---so so slowly---MSM don;t ya know.

when the atheists are finished with there transformation to fascism..its over---forgeta bout it---there won't be any wealth to have any celebrations anyways
