The news feed is sparse tonight for two reasons: (1) Our webmail has been down for five hours or so, and (2) it’s Christmas.
That last post I wrote was not very Christmassy, so I’ll have to try again in the morning. In the meantime: Merry Christmas, everyone!
A chairman of the Ulema Council in Indonesia says that Christmas decorations put up by Indonesian Christians are “excessive and provocative”, and that Christians need to show more restraint to avoid hurting the feelings of Muslims.
In other news, a DMV in the U.S. Virgin Islands has denied a driver’s license to a Muslim woman who refused to remove her veil for a photo. CAIR is on the case.

Caveat: Articles in the news feed are posted “as is”. Gates of Vienna cannot vouch for the authenticity or accuracy of the contents of any individual item posted here. We check each entry to make sure it is relatively interesting, not patently offensive, and at least superficially plausible. The link to the original is included with each item’s title.
