Aproveitando que os ortodoxos  ainda não comemoraram o Natal, reproduzo notícia publicada pela Ria Novosti. Pode-se enquadrar tranquilamente nas bizarrices que a gente vê pelo mundo (e claro que eu tinha que divulgar esta aqui, né?)… Um Imã turco acusa Papai Noel de desonesto pelo “comportamento suspeito de entrar nas casas pela chaminé ou pela janela e não pela porta, como manda o Corão”… Daqui a pouco resolve decretar uma fatwa contra o bom velhinho… Ainda bem que a humanidade não tem outros problemas…

The imam of the Turkish town of Kuzan has issued a warning to Muslims about Santa Claus, who he called a dishonest person, Italy’s Corriere della Sera wrote.

Imam Suleiman Eniceri said it was suspicious that Santa Claus brings presents into a house by climbing down a chimney or through windows. “If he was an honest person he would come through the door as we do,” the imam said. The imam cited a passage in the Koran that calls on the faithful to enter houses through doors.

“Christmas is not our festival,” he said, and warned Turkish Muslims against drinking alcohol.

Turkey’s population is over 96 percent Muslim and less than one percent Christian. At the same time it is a secular state with many European traditions.
