Good advice for ladies QK. No bare anything, no Rushdie t-shirts, no Nike shoes, no talking, no rainbows, no resisting, and don’t tell them your name if it sounds Jewish? ;-)

Sage advice Jlabute, but will QK see this life saving message before she goes to mosque??

We will be unable to save her if she is already swaddled in black wool blanket...cannot tell who is who (I think that was the original intent).

As they say, the plot pluckens or plickins. Will she return unscathed, to Cnet home??

It's an interesting theory, and totally unproven. But presenting unproven theories as fact is how the man-made climate change lunatics roll so ..

It's what is known as a "two-fer". Two giant guilt trips built into one bogus study. I just want to know who paid these losers to do it.

I’ll bet Marty will be going to Open Mosque Day. Because, unlike some, Marty has obviously taken the time to learn about his Muslim neighbours, rather than be frightened of something he doesn’t understand.

Take care Rider59. Some religions and/or cults intensely dislike being the center of fun or close examination.

There is good to be found in all religions with some who take it far too seriously. That is where the problems start.

If more had laughed at and poked fun at Hitler at the beginning of his wicked career rather than taking him seriously, world history would have dodged that bullet.

He should have been ridiculed and laughed at, then pushed right off Germany's stage. Instead he took his ugliness right to the world stage.

Now now, how are you to have an open mind and be receptive to other cultures with obvious contempt oozing from you peeps posts? :200: This is the Open Mosque Day from 2015 but I'm sure it still apply's to the coming one on Feb.16 this year.

KELOWNA — UBC Okanagan’s Muslim Students’ Association welcomed people of all faiths and backgrounds to the Kelowna Islamic Centre on Saturday for Open Mosque Day.

Dozens of people came to the centre to learn more about Islam and Muslims and to visit the mosque.

(The goal is) to bridge the gap between Muslims and non-Muslims, and to boost the mutual understanding and respect between each other,” said Adnan Bhat, member of the Muslim Students’ Association and organizer of the event.

People are often fearful of what they don’t know, so by allowing them to come to the mosque, we allow them to understand us as much as they can, hence getting rid of any skepticism around Muslims or mosques in general.”

The Open Mosque Day allowed people to ask questions about Islam and Muslims and to witness Muslim prayers.

After the recent terrorist attacks in

Paris and backlash against Muslims, Bhat said he feels a responsibility to share the truth about Muslims.

“I don’t think Muslims should have to necessarily clarify our faith, but it is the situation,” he said.

“The ideal case would be people understand Muslims have nothing to do with terrorism, but that’s not the case, hence putting us in this position.”

Bhat said he hopes having open conversations and inviting people into the mosque will help eliminate some of those stereotypes.

“Muslims have been telling people what we are not, especially in the last 15 years, but we want to change that and let people know who we are, not who we are not.”

Kyla Gowenlock was one of the people to visit the mosque on Saturday with her nine-month-old son.

Gowenlock is working with a group of people who are sponsoring Syrian refugees in town, so she wanted to come and experience the Islamic faith firsthand.

Seeing how many other people were also interested in seeing the mosque and learning more about Muslims was encouraging, she said.

“Seeing that people are interested (and that) the Muslims in town are open to having us here and building more of a partnership is nice to see,” she said.

Laura Green also stopped into the mosque to learn more about the Muslim people in Kelowna.

“The Islam religion is in the news at the moment, and I just wanted to come and see what they were discussing here about his mosque in particular and their presence in Kelowna,” she said.

Green also wanted to show her support for the mosque and the local Muslim community.

“This is just a way to learn more and connect with people and show my support for them,” she said.

The Kelowna Islamic Centre is located at 1120 Highway 33.

and I'll bet Marty isn't an uber-sanctimonious jack-arse either, or would be comfortable with others using his generosity to generate warm-tummy memes and send them out with holier than thou phraseology. Marty is just a good guy, like most people out there.

And playing ‘double-dog-dare ya’ in public over attending seems pretty childish.

"Betcha I can run up and ring the doorbell."

"Betcha ya won't 'cause you'll get caught."

"Betcha if I get caught there'll be cookies and you'll miss out."

"Betcha maybe, but remember 'I told you so' when you're trapped inside."

The disrespect here where Muslims might view it is very unsettling.

Hence my example for a preview above.

Been all over the world and met people from many cultures. Have an extremely open mind, and very receptive to other cultures. Why would you imply otherwise?
