In a strife-torn world of different walks of life, we too seldom see people
focus on what they have in common. The miracle of Christmas is that it
transcends denominationalism with a universal message of hope for Peace on
Earth, Good Will Toward Men.
This is NOT an "interfaith" event; it is intrafaith. There is only one
faith represented, and only one faith observed by the participants:
Christianity. Referring to this as interfaith is disrespectful to all
dbrbmwYou obviously don't get out much. People work together,
go to school together, work on community projects together, shop together, have
friends over for dinner, and many other things. Individual choices of religious
affiliation doesn't enter into it, nor does race, gender, or gender
attraction. What's your point? The media's coverage of stories leads
people to believe that every person isolates himself/herself from other by these
biases. The real world is quite different than the media portrays it. Or
haven't you noticed?This story is news because it shows that
many people don't have these biases. We just live, work, play, and
celebrate together the life of Jesus Christ. Don't try to make this into
anything more than that. Chill!
It is just not that hard for all with different views to get together. A nice
lesson learned. It would be nice if this lesson were applied year round.
