First He’s A Vampire Hunter And Now This

| Learning | December 23, 2014

(I’m attending an interfaith discussion group and today’s topic is how people of different faiths celebrate holidays.)

Discussion Leader #1: “A major Muslim holiday is Eid al-Adha, or the festival of Abraham’s Sacrifice of Ishmael…”

Man: “Who was Ishmael?”

Discussion Leader #1: “He was the son of Abraham by Hagar.”

Man: “Who was Hagar?”

Discussion Leader #2: “She was a slave. Sarah’s handmaiden.”

Man: “And who’s Sarah?”

(At this point the rest of the group is rolling their eyes and sighing.)

Discussion Leader #1: “She was Abraham’s wife.”

Man: *pause* “Huh, I didn’t know Abraham Lincoln was married…”
