Liberal Christian Church Debuts Christmas Play Telling Story Of Jesus’ Birth From Muslim Point Of View

CHICAGO (RNS) — The scene is familiar from many Nativity scenes arranged at this time of year: the Virgin Mary, cradling the newborn Jesus.

Then, the baby speaks, defending his mother’s innocence and declaring he has been appointed as a prophet.

That might come as a surprise to Christians in the audience of the new play “Christmas Mubarak.”

The play, an original production from the Chicago theater company Silk Road Rising, sets the story of the births and lives of both Mary and Jesus from the Quran and Muslim traditions alongside the Christmas music of Christian traditions, in hopes it will illustrate how much the two religions have in common.

“This is a love letter to the Muslims we know and who come, that they’re going to feel like they’re incorporated in the Christmas holiday,” said Corey Pond, a Silk Road member who directed and adapted the play, working with a consultant on Islam to make sure it wouldn’t offend.

True. A "believer" would not go

It's meant to "influence" non-islamics to believe the 2 are similarly derived ... so what's the concern about islam?

I posted it only as one example of huge efforts to "soften" islam for those who want to believe it's soft

If one believes that Jesus Christ was a prophet and not our Lord and Saviour they are not Christian.

That's the point. The concept is a phony / a ploy geared to parrot a now common islam propaganda tool >

"islam is just like Christianity, so what's to worry about it?"

Progtards are in denial about oslam. Every ignorant twit I have argued about islam with has always been white, blames the West for islam acting like a rabid animal and analogizes it with shit the church blessed five hundred years ago. Even muslims themselves don't deny islam is more than simply a religion.

Yes. That's what's so silly.

islamics all know it's FAR more than a religion - that it's a political ideology designed / geared to achieve ultimate supremacy

Many say so up front in fact .. even those who carefully or unwittingly deny supremacy per se, say it's a political, social, legal and monetary ideology

Islam is fascism for the 21st century.

And I will guess that the same Caucasian people who defend Islam, would not do the same for Christianity.

This is because they are afraid of Islam, and think appeasement will prevent Islamic violence and terrorism.

It never has and it never will.

Correct!!

Appeasement with islam only makes things far worse and plays into islam's hands and emboldens islamics to up the ante .. i.e. greatly increases the chances of violent behavior. ... like, hey!! It works!! .

But, this is what it's apologists do
