I met this italian couple who converted to islam on a holiday to some muslim country and they came back and asked for the church to remove its cross from public view from atop the pinnacle. they also asked for the local catholic school in their village in Italy to stop preaching the bible, ive also heard that muslims want christmas not to be celebrated in schools and nurseries, also the red cross not to have a cross as their symbol.

Look! im not a brilliant guy but i can sure as heck see trouble coming my way...

Its so hypocritical that a muslim country doesnt make allowance for any other religion or beliefs.

Just imagine if the UN went to saudi and said lets not have the imams praying over a microphone at six am!, or some christians wanted to open a church for the minority christians!

Theyd be screwed !

.... what do we do?
