So Jack and his mom were at TJ Maxx yesterday shopping. Directly in front of them in the checkout line there was a Muslim woman wearing a head scarf. According to Mandi there was a point where the light bulb came on in Jack's mind, his face lit up, and exclaimed with great wonder and joy, "Mary!" "Look Mommy, Mary!" And the proceeded to continually point out Mary to anyone who would listen.
Would it be offensive for a Muslim woman to be confused for the mother of Jesus? Probably.
Is it safe to say Jack would have made a better Catholic than Protestant? Probably.
Did the Christmas store register this year? Definitely.
