My friend John Cole finally had enough. He has good advice for us all.
Finally, I couldn’t take it anymore, and when he said “You can’t even pray anymore. Christians get stopped from praying, but Muslims get to pray,” I lost it.
“When was the last time someone stopped you from praying,” I asked.
He seemed startled- “Me, never. But they…”
I cut him off- “And when was the last time anyone stopped anyone you know from praying?”
“Well, I don’t personally know of anyone…”
“So who exactly is stopping people from praying?”
A little reality goes a long way. It’s time to start introducing it to the discussions.
