Very Christian? What a hoot.

It could be very Muslim, if the http://www.whitehouse.gov/photos-and-video/video/president-obama-lights-... ]transcript/video is accurate.

Which Muslim couldn't subscribe to:

Tonight, we celebrate a story that is as beautiful as it is simple. The story of a child born far from home to parents guided only by faith, but who would ultimately spread a message that has endured for more than 2,000 years -– that no matter who we are or where we are from, we are each called to love one another as brother and sister.

While this story may be a Christian one, its lesson is universal. It speaks to the hope we share as a people. And it represents a tradition that we celebrate as a country –- a tradition that has come to represent more than any one holiday or religion, but a season of brotherhood and generosity to our fellow citizens.

It's that spirit of unity that we must remember as we light the National Christmas Tree –- a tree that will shine its light far beyond our city and our shores to every American around the world.

But try saying "Allah took on human flesh and was obedient unto death, as the prophets foretold," which He did, and see what happens. But that would be very Christian, indeed.
