We have a lost dog in our neighborhood. By the look of it he was a well trained pet. The children (me included) have been petting him at every opportunity.
Stanley our neighbor talked about putting up an advertisement on the lost and found column. The canine has been given temporary abode in his compound.
Late noon today, A lady and two gentlemen came to the neighborhood armed with a leash with the intent to adopt the dog. I was with adam.
“Why are you touching the dog? Are you a Muslim?”
“Why?” I asked.
“My muslims friends said that they cannot touch dogs. My Muslim friends refused to come to my open house because they said they cannot come because I keep dogs”
“Islam does not forbid” I explained,. ” Those are misinformed “Muslims”
” Some of My Christian friends also refused to come to my house because they think as a buddhist I worship the devil. I am confused.”
” ha,ha do not be confused. It happen to all religions., Our job is to seek the truth”
Bigot? are these bigots?
