God Bless Us Every One

The best antidote to lies is truth: and thus the best antidote to all the stupid lies about Muslims demanding that Christmas trees be torn down, or protesting against Santa's visit to a primary school, is to post some pictures from Dakar.

Dakar (most famous for the Paris-Dakar rally) is the capital of Senegal: and Senegal is a majority Muslim country (best known for its vibrant musical culture). So not somewhere you'd expect much in the way of Christmas celebrations - perhaps private ones, low-key?

Balls to that. Dakar goes the whole hog, with even the Central Mosque being festooned ith Christmas lights. And why not? Jesus is a prophet of Islam just as surely as he is the Son of God for Christians, and it's his birthday.

Here is the story from the Huffington Post. it's worth looking at all the pictures.

Meanwhile, here's somewhere else where Muslims and Christians get on fine (and when the IDF and settler terrorists aren't shooting or bombing them they both get along with Jews as well).

Anyway, a very happy Christmas to all readers of EKN, whether they be Christian, Muslim, Jewish, atheist or anything else.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:17)

Note that "the world". Not "Christians". Not "everyone except Muslims and leftists". Not "everyone except neo-Nazis and Zionists". Not "everyone except gays and lesbians". THE WORLD. From Martin Luther King to Osama bin Laden, from Frank Zappa to Benyamin Netanyahu, from Anders Breivik to Hillary Clinton.

He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world (1 John 2:2).

So relax. Chill. Be of good cheer. Not only did the world not end on 21st December, but you're not going to Hell. And neither are those other guys.

Thanks Joe, and to you and yours.

We're planning to do Route 66 next July and will undoubtedly swing by Vegas, so maybe we could meet in realspace in 2013?
