This is the time of year when Christians around the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, Peace Be Upon Him, to Mary (Mariam), Peace Be Upon Her. This is also the time of year where Christians celebrate middle easterners and dress similar to them when portraying Jesus and Mary.
At churches they have a children’s play, showing the biblical story of the birth of Jesus, to the whole church. I used to be christian, so as a child I have portrayed the virgin Mary several times in the Christmas plays.
I wore, what today is similar to an, abaya and hijab, covering my hair and a loose long sleeved dress. Everyone in the Christmas play was dressed like some of today’s modern day Muslims and Arabs, going to the masjid.
If so many Christians hate how Muslim dress and think women are oppressed by dressing modest, why do they have Mary dress the traditional way in the plays. Looks to me like Christians are celebrating Muslims.
We also see nativity scenes at churches or in Christians yards, where the statues, look like Middle-Easterners, dressed in thobes and wear keffiyehs. Oh yeah, The people being displayed at the nativity scenes are arabs and middle easterners.
In these times in the U.S. many people are refusing to accept Syrian Refugees. My question is, would Jesus or Mary be accepted in the U.S. right now?
