This will jam a stick in the spokes of the ‘all cultures are the same’ crowd.
Tolerance is the coin of the realm for leftists, right?
They care so very much about bending over backward to ‘not offend’ people that Leftists impose their politically correct rules on the rest of us to protect their delicate feelings.
Now you get to meet someone the Left’s PC ideology actually lines up with. (Warning: it isn’t pretty.)
Canadian Cleric Younus Kathrada: Congratulating Christians for Christmas is Worse than Murder pic.twitter.com/1S73XPjfRk

Here’s a transcription of the key part of the translated message:
“Nowadays, of course, we are close to Christmas. We see around us people who are preparing to celebrate Christmas. And with great sadness we see amongst us there are those who think it’s a small matter. And so, not only might we congratulate them on their Christmas, on their false holiday and celebration, but we might take part in their holiday as well.
Do you know that you and I must be offended when people say that they worship Jesus? Or when they say that Jesus is the Son of God?
Why do our hearts not react? There are those who will say to them ‘Merry Christmas’. What are you congratulating them on? (Are these) congratulations on the birth of your Lord? Is that acceptable to a Muslim? Are you now approving of their beliefs? By saying that you are approving of it.
If a person were to commit every major sin — committing adultery, dealing with interest, lying, murder… if a person were to do all of those major sins, they are nothing compared to the sin of congratulating and greeting the non-Muslims on their false festivals.
Saying Merry Christmas is WORSE than adultery, lying and murder, now is it? While you might find some liberals who could nod their heads in sage agreement with that statement it might surprise them to learn that not even every MUSLIM would agree with that stupid statement.
Another Muslim man, also in Canada, is almost his polar opposite:
"As my Christmas wish I hope Canada opens its door to another Catholic left behind in Pakistan — #AsiaBibi who has spent nine years on death row, simply for being a Christian." https://t.co/Liaq7kH0o2

Tarek Fatah is not the only Muslim wanting his religion to embrace Western values about human rights. The Imam of Peace, for instance tweeted this:
Let there be peace this Christmas???? pic.twitter.com/i682x5kWHQ

And a British news outlet ran a story with this headline and subhead:
Iraq makes Christmas Day an official nationwide holiday to mark ‘the occasion of the birth of Jesus Christ’
The Iraqi cabinet has approved an amendment to the national holidays law
It makes December 25 a public holiday for everyone, not just Christians as before
Iraq’s population is 95 per cent Muslim and there are around 300,000 Christians
That’s a long way from what we’re seeing here at home, isn’t it?
Bernie Sanders tried to disqualify a nominee because he held sincere Christian beliefs. That sounds like a ‘religious test’, doesn’t it? Pretty sure we’re not permitted to use those to disqualify candidates.
SICK: Bernie Sanders Puts His Bigotry On FULL Display During Trump’s Nominee Hearings
And just yesterday, we saw a story where Knights of Columbus membership could disqualify judicial nominees.
Senators Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) raised concerns about membership in the Knights of Columbus while the Senate Judiciary Committee reviewed the candidacy of Brian C. Buescher, an Omaha-based lawyer nominated by President Trump to sit on the United States District Court for the District of Nebraska.
Senators also asked whether belonging to the Catholic charitable organization could prevent judges from hearing cases “fairly and impartially.”

Isn’t this the same party that’s got some uncomfortably close ties to the race-baiting Louis Farrakhan?
The Crazy Imam denounces muslims that say Merry Christmas. How different is that, really, from the Democrats denouncing Catholics volunteering at Knights of Columbus?
But it’s perfectly fine for Mad Maxine to hijack a church pulpit to deliver a blistering anti-Trump political screed?
Nothing to see there, right?
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
