Aww. Anglican Priest & Muslim Imam Bond Over Their Love for Amazon

Aww. Anglican Priest & Muslim Imam Bond Over Their Love for Amazon

Amazon has released a new television advertisement featuring a Catholic priest and Muslim imam chumming it up over a cup of tea.

 

The dialogue-free commercial opens with an imam in full Islamic regalia visiting the home of an elderly man in plain clothes and clerical collar, where they make small talk, laughing and touching each other affectionately.

As they stand to bid farewell, both grab their knees in pain. Moments later, after parting ways, they place orders on their Amazon Prime smartphone applications. Gift boxes are delivered to each man from the other, followed by scenes of the the imam entering a mosque, and the other man entering a Catholic church, now in priests’ robes.

It is then revealed that they sent knee pads to each other, as both kneel and pray in their respective ‘houses of worship.’

Predictably, the mainstream media is ecstatic about the new ad, universally propagating the talking point that it is a “total repudiation of Trumpism,” according to the Daily Beast.

“Amazon’s ad offers a not-so-subtle counterargument to some of the angry anti-Muslim rhetoric espoused by President-elect Donald Trump and his supporters,” wrote David Goldman at CNN. “As talk bubbles of Muslim registries and even a potential ban on Muslim immigrants, Amazon’s message offers a different approach: We are people first. We embrace the things that make us different, but we’re all very much the same. Muslims have arthritis, too.”

Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post, made a rare appearance on Twitter to express his pride in the commercial.

Islamic historian, Cristina Laila, offered her take on the message behind the advertising.

“It’s another way to put Muslims on your TV, on your computers, in your homes – as if they are in the fabric of western society,” she said. “Amazon is implying that an Imam and a priest both basically pray to the same god as if they’re the same religion, same belief system.”

“The depiction of an Imam walking into a priest’s home and hugging him and having tea with him is ridiculous.”

The web retailer recently came under fire for banning sales of the Confederate flag – while still carrying ISIS and Hamas flags, paraphernalia, and publications.

A Catholic priest in Normandy, France, was beheaded in July by Muslim terrorists in Islamic garb. They stormed the church during morning mass and forced the priest to kneel at the altar, while they filmed themselves slitting his throat in front of the congregation.

Muslims Outraged Over Doormat That Says “Allah”

Muslims Outraged Over Doormat That Says “Allah”

Amazon has removed a third-party line of ‘door and dog mats’ featuring the Arabic word for God – Allah – after a complaint from Muslim users, including a British politician.3add97be00000578-3984112-offensive_-a-36_1480459257046

The mats – sold through Amazon by a number of independent users including ‘Dargon
One’, ‘Trendy Mats’ and ‘Gear One’ – had been garnering complaints from Muslims since June, according to RT.

But it was only when Mariam Khan – a Councillor in the English city of Birmingham – complained on Twitter Monday that the site took the items off the market.

‘These mats are extremely offensive to Muslims & out of order,’ Khan wrote. ‘@amazon @AmazonHelp please remove these from your site immediately.’

She called the company to complain, earning an apology and promise to remove the items, but she said that the company would take them down faster if her followers complained – which they duly did.

Anam Hoque said the items were ‘disgusting’, ‘irresponsible’ and promoted ‘hatred’ and ‘islamophobia’.

Moeed Sheikh, meanwhile, called the items ‘Disgraceful & Diabolical’, adding: ‘shame on @amazon & @AmazonHelp for selling these door mats’.

But others mocked the eventual removal.

Conservative talk show host Phil Valentine tweeted: “Amazon caves to pressure to remove Allah doormats. What happened to if you’re offended don’t buy it?”

“You must be new here.”

Amazon’s terms and conditions prohibit the selling of items “that promote or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual or religious intolerance or promote organizations with such views”.

Evangelicals Want Christmas Back at Pennsylvania Avenue

Anti-LGBT evangelicals want Trump to reclaim the White House from Obama’s rainbow cooties by hanging a giant ‘Merry Christmas’ banner.

President Obama, was a big fan of usurping the power of the executive branch. He especially didn’t like to miss an opportunity to shove his Cultural Marxist agenda down American society’s collective throat. In one incident we can all be proud of, he famously ordered the White House to be lit up in rainbow colours in 2015, following the Supreme Court ruling that brought same-sex marriage to all 50 states.

Teleprompter equipped, he parroted some heroic platitudes:

“All people should be treated equal regardless of who they love.”

We traditionalist Christians of course are never impressed with his shenanigans. Conservative radio was quick to criticize his actions and his attempt to pass an assault on our values off as “heroic” by sputtering tired boiler-plate banalities at us. Speaking on American Family Radio, activists from the evangelical American Family Association called for Donald Trump to reclaim the White House from homosexuality by writing ‘Merry Christmas’ on the side of it.

Noting Trump’s repeated use of the phrase “Merry Christmas” at rallies – words that some evangelicals accurately note Obama avoids saying – AFA President Tim Wildmon made the suggestion of hanging a banner from the White House.

 

Right Wing Watch, a group dedicated to repeating the standard “Wow. Just wow.” at anything traditional or anyone advocating common sense, definitely had a problem with the things being said in the video:

  • “Good for Donald Trump! Go, Donald, go!”
  • “He’s probably going to hang a ‘Merry Christmas banner in front of the White House, the way he’s going.”
  • “None of this Happy Holidays… it’s Christmas we’re celebrating!”
  • “Wouldn’t that be wonderful, if he put ‘Merry Christmas’ on the White House like Obama put the rainbow colors on the White House. Wouldn’t you love to see that?”

 

The limp-wristed cynics over at the liberal critique site quipped:

“The call is somewhat confusing, given Trump doesn’t actually take office until January 20 – which is decidedly past the socially-acceptable period for Christmas decorations.”

Hopefully Trump will show his true commitment to the cause of Christmas by hanging the “Merry Christmas” banner all year round!

Against All Odds, Electoral College Certifies DJT

Against All Odds, Electoral College Certifies DJT

From Breitbart.com:

 

President-elect Donald Trump celebrated the official tally of the electoral college vote,taking the opportunity to boast about his unexpected victory.

“Today marks a historic electoral landslide victory in our nation’s democracy,” he said in a statement.

Trump has been celebrating his victory since winning the election on November 8th. But he took the opportunity to humiliate the media and Democratic protesters after weeks of speculation that the electoral college could theoretically choose a different candidate.

“We did it!” he wrote on Twitter. “Thank you to all of my great supporters, we just officially won the election (despite all of the distorted and inaccurate media).”

Trump thanked his supporters and the American people for electing him as their president.

“The official votes cast by the Electoral College exceeded the 270 required to secure the presidency by a very large margin, far greater than ever anticipated by the media,” he said.

Trump cited the “millions of hard working men and women” who supported his campaign, but he did not note his opponent Hillary Clinton’s lead in the popular vote.

“With this historic step we can look forward to the bright future ahead. I will work hard to unite our country and be the President of all Americans,” he said. “Together, we will make America great again.”

Parents of German Girl Raped/Murdered by Muslim Migrant COLLECTED DONATIONS FOR MIGRANTS AT HER FUNERAL

Parents of German Girl Raped/Murdered by Muslim Migrant COLLECTED DONATIONS FOR MIGRANTS AT HER FUNERAL

From PamelaGeller.com:

What’s worse: jihad or the sanction and support of its victims?

It is depravity, a sickness of the soul or perhaps it speaks more to a moral bankruptcy.

Like the daughter of one of the victims of the San Bernardino jihad slaughter, who said, “I just kind of didn’t understand how people could be that ignorant about another religion” said Kate Bowman, recalling the day her father, Harry Bowman, was murdered. Who doesn’t understand, Ms. Bowman? The dead or the jihadis?

This is hardly unique. Maria Ladenburger, the rape/murder victim of a Muslim migrant and whose father is a senior EU official, told people to not bring flowers to the funeral but give money to a pro-migrant organization that works to stop deportation of “refugees.”

These are the acts of a conquered people. Their daughter was brutally raped and murdered by a Muslim refugee and her parents are urging donations to an organization for migrants.

Unfortunately the organization “Weitblick Freiburg” deleted the Facebook posting with the comments, but this article reports that that Facebook users were outraged because Maria’s parents used her murder to raise funds for Muslim refugees.  “Weitblick Freiburg” works to stop the deportation of “refugees.”
