Prayers on the Other Side

Two months ago, while visiting my family in Chicago, I performed my Friday prayers in a nearby church that had been very graciously made available by its congregants for the local Muslim community's weekly services. Sitting there and listening to the sermon, my eyes wandered to the various church accoutrements on the tables and walls, and while I was grateful for this clear display of interfaith harmony, I also couldn't help think that this is exactly the kind of thing would tick off folks on the far right. Well, as The Daily Show's John Oliver showed this past Thursday, not only is this not at all a unique phenomenon, but yep, it really does.

That was hilarious. John Oliver deserves his own show.
