OBSERVATION ABOUT THE NEED FOR INCLUSIVITY - from Fr. Tom Collins
President Obama has repeatedly asserted that Islam is a religion of peace.
If this is so, should we not try to make our Christmas celebrations more
inclusive by stopping our imposition of the Christian "Peace on earth"
and, instead, loudly proclaiming in crowded shopping malls during the
Christmas season, "Allah hu Akbar"? I believe that people would respond
quite dramatically [And how!] to such a pro-active effort to make Christmas more
inclusive. It is just a thought to help all of us stay politically correct
during the holiday season and to bring a smile to the face of our President. [And, of course, we all want to do that, eh?]
