Archbishop Promotes Self To Santa Claus For Kids

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – Looking ever so jolly, New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan played Santa Claus sitting in a corner handing out gifts wrapped in red paper to needy kids at St. Cecilia’s on 106th Street.

Unlike Bethlehem, where there was no room in the inn, Dolan says, “Well, the church tries to make room for everybody and… today, we’re making room for kids and their moms and some of our elders who come here for just friendship and warmth and a good meal and some fraternity and prayer.”

Of the celebration, says the Archbishop, it’s hospitality, it’s Christmas time.

    I don’t know how somebody can live happily with the false-hood way of life. Quran says that Christians are closest to Muslims. Closest in what? The answer is closest in religion. Christians are almost there. What Christians have to acknowledge is the messenger-hood of another Prophet called Muhammad, an unlettered prophet, an illiterate person who could neither read nor write. Quran is 100% God Almighty Allah’s words and Quran is error-free and a master-piece of Arabic literature.Islam is the religion of all prophets. Are NOT Christians running away from Christianity because of Trinity, Original sin and crucifixion?Islam is a straight way. Quran says that no other religion will be accepted by Allah except Islam. Accept Islam for your salvation. Islam is rational and Quran is for men of understanding. Equality and woman rights attract others towards Islam.
