Today is Banned in Brunei, Tajikistan and Somalia

In case you didn't know it, there is no today in three Islamic countries today. Tajikistan, Brunei and Somalia have banned any celebration of Christmas.

Not very inclusive, I would say.

More importantly, we remember that Christians in the Middle East are living in fear for their lives especially in Syria and Iraq, which heretofore had significant Christian minorities.

Meanwhile, here on the home front, universities are issuing strict guidelines that limit just how students and staff (Christians and Jews) are supposed to celebrate "the holidays". They want to make sure nobody feels offended or "excluded".

So much for the religion of peace. Not!
