What NoName is referring to is that when those in the west unknowingly greet one of those Muslims, the response will probably be a grunt, angry shout, "F you", no response...literally anything but a "Merry Christmas to you too". This only strengthens the image of the stereotypical Muslim man as one of a bearded mullah that stares angrily at the infidels around him. The image of a Muslim that is insular, has no care for those outside the faith, no interest in assimilating into the western country that's given them the economic opportunity they don't get back home. THe unfriendly gruff that has nothing but disdain and loathing for the decadent western ways. One who is so crippled by his faith that he can't even utter mere words without feeling shame and seeking repentance.

As a wise man once said "Its no wonder our image is in shambles."

I'll introduce some controversy, let's see if it sells (got it?)


It's Christmas Father, not Santa Claus

Wow, how did that even happen? It is incredibly important to be open and accessible and treat people fairly and look them in the eye and tell them what is on your mind.To protect themselves, people those who are worried about blasphemy should spend time understanding what specific scriptures tell about tolerance and may be listen to experts in media/youtube/personal connection. It is always how you make them feel, does not matter how it was presented or said. If it renders altruist view with truancy and honest expression of concern that what matters.The individual should keep himself focused on a very clear strategy of modernizing the thought process.
In an alien condition it is important to understand their culture and assess its intended and unintended effects.

Again I am just a messenger .

Not been the best xmas so far.
Sister is talking down 2 me lecturing me,giving me the silent treatment last 2-3 days.
My nephew is a spoilt brat ate all my chocolate I had heaps there,he didn't even thank me and my brother for his xmas money,my sister did't thank us for her presents.BTW he is 16 he doesn't give presents he only recieves them.
Can't wait for my sister and nephew to leave Coota the day after tomorrow.
And I missed cricket at my sisters,no cricket rule.

Will definitely leave my nephew out of my will,he is a hateful child.My close friends are definitely more family to me.Thanks for listening 2 my rant.Hope you guys have a blessed new year.

Sorry to hear that Brockley.
Yeah, totally cut him off, the 16 years old nephew. Include him in your Will, my hass...are you nuts? DOn't give him nothing.
Tell your sister to teach him some manners or else, tell her and the boy that you will give him a serious whipping! IS it okay to beat his hass? I mean in Australia? In my country, where I come from, I would have whooped his hass til he goes to a monastery and turns into a full-time monk/ nun!
What a jerk...eating all your candies! Listen brother, next year, give him no money. Tell your bother to do the same. Tell the boy to get a 'job'! And tell him that he is old enough to deliver pizza, groceries or what not and give his parents and uncles gifts.

DO you and your brother really live in a town called Cootta? In Bengali it means Dog/.

Well to his defense, he's 16.. the age of rebellion.

But it's Christmas time, should have decency and decorum.

Are you kidding me, Brockley? She can't make you not drink coffee and soda after 8...that is ridiculous! You are an old grown man! Sister has no right to do this to you, her old grown up brother - when she does not even teach her own kid, a sixteen years old - simple manners to say hi to her uncles or say 'thank you' after receiving gifts????

I would have asked my sister to leave and given the kid a hard kick in the butt! And would have taken the money I gave him as gift.

Sixteen, rebel? What rebellion? rebellion by not saying 'thank you' to your uncle after receiving cash from him? How about being a rebel and say I am not going to take the money in the first place - first? You can't eat the cake and keep it too! Rebel my hass! That is NOT rebellion, that is just plain old RUDENESS, lack of simple manner, laziness and growing up feeling 'entitled'!

But I have had my fair share of discipline, the same kind Bujhee kom is referring to.

Changed my way of thinking. ...discipline

I am so sorry to hear that mate. Kids that age can be real insensitive jerks, I know, I used to be one not so long ago.

THANKS Aklemalp and Buhjee.
My sister will come round,she does this ignores you then does the opposite.
But my nephew is a concern.
In my will,if my brother dies first I will have 2 houses,plus some cash.
And would rather leave my goods to friends who have been like family.
I am lucky I have 5 good close friends,maybe more I can count on 1 hand.
Plus I have friends on this forum and another.

My sister says he has trouble relating to adults.But the Jibberish he comes out with is out of this world.He has himself deep into cartoons,games etc,and when he talks 2 adults he talks on another dimension.I see him having problems when he goes 2 uni.

Thanks Roy.

I used to get a hand round the back of the head when I was out of line,even when I wasn't.
I remember the first gift I gave was my blocks which I wrapped rather badly for another member of the family.
I learnt to give gifts young.

Mate, be grateful you got a gift, at the rate we are going gifts will soon be digitalised.

Nah got money or gift cards.
Or got the gift from my nephew that my sister bought.
Gee at 16 you'd think he'd be independent enough to buy gifts.
Was seeing the writing on the wall,when at 12 he was not giving gifts now its not funny anymore.
