Sultan of Brunei Threatens Muslims Who Celebrate Christmas With Up to 5 Years in Prison … Intended to Control the Act of Celebrating Christmas Excessively & Openly, Which Could Damage the Beliefs of the Muslim Community
IMAGINE IF WE TOLD MUSLIMS IN THE UNITED STATES THEY WOULD BE JAILED FOR CELEBRATING THEIR RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS?
Sounds like a modern day Burgermeister Meisterburger … Talk about your War on Christmas. The Sultan of Brunei is warning residents of that if they plan on celebrating Christmas, they could face up to five years in jail. UNREAL, because Muslim countries are so tolerant, eh? So why arrest those who would dare celebrate Christmas or make plans to organize Christmas get-together’s? It is being done so in fear that celebrating Christmas will affect the faith of its country. In a statement from the Ministry of Religious Affairs, “These enforcement measures are…intended to control the act of celebrating Christmas excessively and openly, which could damage the aqidah (beliefs) of the Muslim community.”
So Muslims countries across the world can ban Christian religious celebrations and threaten individuals with jail time, but Muslims can come to the United States and celebrate their religion without any consequences what-so-ever and in many cases radicalize in mosques without a damn thing done to them.
The super-rich ruler of Brunei has told residents of his country that if they plan on celebrating Christmas, they could face up to five years in jail.
In fear the the religious holiday will affect the faith of its country, the tiny oil-rich nation’s Sultan, Hassanal Bolkiah, has banned the public celebration of Christmas.
Any Muslims caught celebrating Christmas, and non-Muslims who are discovered organising celebrations, could face the lengthy prison sentence.
While non-Muslims are allowed to celebrate the holiday within their own communities, they must not disclose their plans to the nation’s Muslims – which make up 65 per cent of the 420,000-strong population.
Around 20 per cent of Brunei’s residents are non-Muslim, including substantial Buddhist and Christian communities.
‘These enforcement measures are…intended to control the act of celebrating Christmas excessively and openly, which could damage the aqidah (beliefs) of the Muslim community,‘ said the Ministry of Religious Affairs in a statement.
Freedom of Religion is obviously in the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution; however, how does a free and open society deal with a religion which is allowed to operate under “freedom of religion” which looks to spread and become the only region, even if by force?

WHAT A SHOCK … A LIB BUSINESS LIKE STARBUCKS MINIMIZING CHRISTMAS.
Starbucks Holiday cups have some folks seeing RED. It would appear that Starbucks has decided to take the Christmas out of their holiday cups this year. Instead of a secular Christmas theme on their cups like ornaments or snowflakes, they have decided to go with just red. Maybe they are looking to save money as they can use the same cups for Valentine’s Day. Enough of the excuses from Starbucks about how they are inclusive and serve customers from all walks of live and religions because that never stopped them in the past to having some sort of Christmas holiday decoration on their cups. Was it just this year that they decided to only serve those folks?
The Evolution of the Starbucks cup … Is anyone else noticing a change?
The sight of red cups being handed out at Starbucks usually signifies the “most wonderful time of the year” is underway, but this year’s holiday season at Starbucks is already being marred by a red cup controversy.
While red cups of Starbucks past have featured holiday symbols like reindeer and ornaments, this year’s cup is plain.
When the cup was unveiled earlier this month, the coffee chain described it as having a, “two-toned ombré design, with a bright poppy color on top that shades into a darker cranberry below.”
“Starbucks has become a place of sanctuary during the holidays,” Jeffrey Fields, Starbucks vice president of design and content, said in a news release announcing the cup. “We’re embracing the simplicity and the quietness of it. It’s a more open way to usher in the holiday.”
Ever since the 2015 cup was released in U.S. and Canada stores Nov. 1, Starbucks customers have taken to the Internet to say they do not like the cup’s “purity of design,” as Fields called it.
So if you have a problem with this you can do two things. One, do as former pastor Joshua Feuerstein did when he ordered his coffee and told the baristas that his name was “Merry Christmas” and thus making Starbucks write Merry Christmas on their cup. Or you could just not go to Starbucks and save yourself $5 for a coffee.
WHERE IS BUDDY FROM ELF WHEN YOU NEED HIM?
The war on Christmas has started early this year, just as early as stores rid themselves of Halloween displays. The Roosevelt Field Mall in Long Island, NY has ditched its traditional holiday village and put Ol’ Saint Nick inside a winter-themed “glacier” instead. And why did they do this? To avoid offending people, of course. Do these morons realize they are offending people by sanitizing Christmas? The mall charges anywhere from $24.99 to $59.99 for pictures with Santa who is sitting in front of an all-white background. Wait, isn’t that racist? Why is it black or inclusive of all colors? (sarcasm intended) There is no Christmas tree, no presents, no elves, no nothing!!! So now the secular commercialization of Christmas with Santa Claus is offensive. When will the absurdity end? Frankly, people should just do their Christmas shopping elsewhere is this mall is so offended by Christmas. Why is Santa even dressed in a red coat and hat? Just have the children take a picture next to some dude names Stan wearing khaki’s and a sweater.
Honestly, people need to boycott and not shop at places like this to show them the stupidity of their ways. In is simply ridiculous that less than 1% of people complaining that something is offensive would ruin in for so many children.
I guess people find the movie Elf offensive too
A Long Island mall swapped Santa’s sleigh for something resembling a spaceship and nixed the Christmas tree because it didn’t want to “offend” anyone, irate shoppers told The Post.
The Roosevelt Field Mall ditched its traditional holiday village and put Ol’ Saint Nick inside a winter-themed “glacier” instead. But some say the white and blue display looks more like something out of “Star Trek” than “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”
“Santa comes along with a decorated tree; he doesn’t come with a spaceship,” Maria Lovdahl fumed.
The Williston Park mother of two was shopping Thursday night when she spotted the apparently futuristic Santa photo kiosk.
“Me and my husband looked at each other and said, ‘What is that?’?” Lovdahl recalled. “They said it was because people were offended by the traditional Christmas display, that they had gotten comments in prior years.”
After a lifetime of shopping at Roosevelt Field and bringing her kids there, Lovdahl said, “I won’t be shopping there this year.”
Betty Borrero, 32, heard so much about the new display she came to see it for herself.
“I bring my child, I want to see the big tree in the background. This is blank,” she said, noting she’ll take her kid to Macy’s for this year’s holiday pictures.
In an update from Legal Insurrection, it appears that the Mall has somewhat relented on their stupid premise and they have put back the Christmas trees. Although, I can pretty much guarantee they call them festival trees.
The War on CHRISTmas: Parents Livid as Long Island School Removes Words From Silent Night as Too Offensive
THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS CONTINUES WITH POLITICAL CORRECTNESS NONSENSE …
At Kings Point Intermediate School on Long Island, NY it was ok for the liberal school edumacators thought it was perfectly okay to offend Christians by sanitizing the Christmas song ‘Silent Night’ of all references to God so they did not offend others. Yup, because the birth of Jesus, the son of God is just of darn offensive. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! What kind of IDIOTS do we have running schools these days? Turns out they did offend many people, the parents that were wondering what song they were listening to their kids butcher.
There is anger at a Long Island school because they changed the words to the song “Silent Night.”
The district says it was to avoid offending people but it seems like it did the opposite.
Parents are so confused that 5th graders at RJO Intermediate School in Kings Park recently performed the song “Silent Night” with all religious words like Christ, God and Jesus taken out.
Dan Gallo, a parent of one of the students was completely offended by it.
“There is so many Christmas songs. Why would you change the lyrics to something that is very near and dear to so many people?” said Gallo.
Another parent, Tina Byrne, doesn’t have a problem with what the school did.
The school district says the school principal and the choral director decided to teach the students the altered version.
Watch the VIDEO below and try to figure out just what song these kids are singing.
Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
‘Round yon virgin , mother and child
Holy infant so, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glory streams from heaven afar
Heavenly, hosts sings Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.
Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.
I sense a pendulum swing back the other direction of people are getting real sick and tired of this PC nonsense.
