Took my kids Halloween costume shopping....

While we were costume shopping at several halloween stores, my wife and I browsed the adult sized costume areas.

We saw nun costumes, and priest costumes, and even Jesus costumes. No lie.

Even Rabbi and Pope costumes.

Heck, they have Mary and Joseph costumes. Moses and Wise men, too.

Buddha? Check.

Ya know what they didn't have, so we asked?

Muhammad.

So, we went home and Googled looking for Muhammad costumes....and you can try this yourself:

Google Jesus costume and you'll get hundreds of sales sites and pictures.

Google Muhammad costume and you get nada.

What's up with that?

Oh, for the record; my 12 year old son will be an evil clown, my 10 year old son is going to be Predator (the Sci Fi monster, not the priest,) and I am going to be a tiki something. Wifey is TBD.

I keep the lights off, retire to the back bedroom, and ignore the door bell.

Muslims believe it's a sin to attempt to portray Allah either in painting or as impersonation. That's why the interior and exterior decoration of mosques have none of the 'vain images' we find in churches.
We could go further than even Islam and claim all so called Holy Books are themselves potentially blasphemous productions of the human mind pretending to speak for and on behalf of the creator - whatever he, she or it is.

Are you patronizing us? No fucking shit, Sherlock. What would we do without you? Don't you have a kangaroo to rape?
