  1. It is both simple and not so simple.

  2. Since Dhrump is trying to establish a Muslim registry we must be like our late great Sister in Christ Corrie Ten Boom who hid and sheltered Jewish people from the nazis.
    I make it a point to smile and great all my Muslim Hijabi Sisters. Women often bear the brunt of abuse.
    I support, encourage and pray for my Muslim co-workers who are wonderful praying God Loving people. I will not give into hate. I will be a Corrie Ten Boom in America!

    1. Wonderful reference. Corrie Ten Boom certainly is a heroine we can all imitate by her example. If given the chance, I certainly will do the same.

      1. Since Jim Crow is about to make a comeback after January 20th we will probably need a version of the Underground Railroad also.

      2. Interesting perspective – yes, perhaps we will. And since it’s been done before successfully, we’ll know how to do it again even better because many more stations will be available.

  4. So a question. What would you suggest would be a similar response? Do Muslims have anything similar to a Christmas tree in their culture? The tree is not a Christian symbol, so I can see them displaying that. But how would we do in kind? Just curious.

    1. Pete, Yassir Saad erected the tree “in order to show solidarity with the persecuted Iraqi Christian community.” The tree was simply a very public and visible sign of support.

      As Christians, we are called to love. We could show a visible sign in many ways. Standing up publicly to the ever-present bullying of Muslims would be good start.
