I have nothing but love for my Muslim friends, brothers, and sisters. ESPECIALLY in this political climate. But I'm wondering if anybody else feels the same way I do, in that it bugs me when POC convert to Islam on the basis that "Christianity is a white man's religion"??? Like does that bother anybody else? Like Christianity started with MENA people, it is steeped in tradition and orthodoxy / oriental Catholocism is nothing like American branches. Our faith was hijacked
You are completely right to feel this. Christianity was born in the Middle East and was founded by middle easterns and thinking that Christianity is a white religion erases the existence of MENA Christians, who are discriminated against and persecuted for being non Muslim in a majority Muslim region. Saying so is not islamophobic.
