Looks as much fun as Christmas in Saudi Arabia…
Those poor Saudi Christians! Being prevented from celebrating the birth of Jesus in their own land by a foreign and Imperial government. I will light a candle in solidarity.
John, how perceptive of you. There is such an obvious comparison between a bunch of greedy Westerners who hate their hosts but spend their time in the country anyway just for the sake of the Almighty Riyal and the Uigher who are living under the one of the most brutal regimes on Earth in their ancestral lands.
Are there Saudi Christians already?
Been here for ages. Arrived here as Christians and we celebrated X’mas alright – exchanged gifts on the midnight of the 24th and attended mass on the 25th. Found out later on though that X’mas is not at all like Ramadan.
Expatriate Christians can always get days off work to go to their home countries and celebrate Christmas there with their families. Uighers don’t have that choice, do they?
You’re so right. Let’s talk about the remaining Christians of Bethlehem, or the Coptic Christians living in squalor in Egypt, or the Orthodox Christians in Turkey, or any number of non-Muslim minorities enjoying the bare tolerance, if they’re lucky, of the majority in their homelands. Malaysia anyone? Sudan? Somalia? There are 52 Muslim majority countries in the world and yet no emigrant or refugee, Muslim or Christian or Zoroastrian, is queuing up to get into them. If the Uighers could leave the vile Chinese totalitarian bullies behind and emigrate, where do you think they’d probably go? Can you identify their top ten Muslim-majority destinations?
