On Christmas the Prince of Wales gave a speech to his country. He and his family attended mass together to celebrate the festivities. Unfortunately the Queen was suffering from a cold and had to stay behind. Listen to what the future kind said.
“Normally at Christmas, we think of the Birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. I wonder though if this year we might remember how the story of the nativity unfolds, with the fleeing of the holy family to escape violent persecution.”
He compared the birth of Jesus and Christianity to Islam. Specifically, Mohammed traveling to medina to search for converts. He did this on Christmas no less. Listen more here,
“And we might also remember that when the prophet Muhammad migrated from Mecca to Medina he was seeking the freedom for himself and his followers to worship.”
The future kind went on to say that all religions and their members want the same thing. Which is the chance and opportunity to live their life and worship their faith in peace. He coined in with his speech,
“Whichever religious path we follow, the destination is the same – to value and respect the other person, accepting their right to live out their peaceful response to the love of God.”
Perhaps the prince forgot that the British people voted to leave the European Union in large part due to the influx of Islamic Arab immigrants. Perhaps it was horn the best choice of words to mention Islam and Mohammed on Christmas. Especially considering the terrorist attack by a radical jihadist ISIS member at a Berlin, Germany Christmas market just a few days prior.
Many on social media were displeased with his comments so they took to Twitter to express their disgust. See some of their responses to the princes comments here,
didn't Mohammed wipe out Medina five years after pretending to taking refuge there?

If the monarchs weren’t so busy trying to push a progressive agenda perhaps they would realize the folly of their ways and get the support of their people.
