No religious exceptions — for anybody

So Lolla Mohammed Nur is upset that Eid isnâÄôt a recognized holiday in the U.S. Good luck with that. The only way to make sure that everything is like home is to, well, stay home. How much attention does Christmas get in Saudi Arabia?

Actually, IâÄôm against making religious exceptions for anybody, Christians included. Once you start doing that, where does it stop? The only way to be fair is to make no exceptions for anybody. The world just keeps on spinning. If you want to skip a day, take the consequences.
