Have any of you tried to speak with a Muslim and how many Muslims do you see playing games such as tennis, football, snooker, I am fortunate to have a Colombian living next door to me and my local shop is Hindu also very friendly so any remarks responses please

It sounds as though you think they have two heads and come from another planet!

There are plenty Muslims who you wouldn't even realise are Muslim, who will be playing tennis, football, snooker.
I worked with a girl until recently who was of mixed race, wore make up liked a drink, it was only when a chat about sausage sandwiches came up and she said I don't eat them I am a Muslim that I knew.
It didn't even cross my mind to worry about her religion or nor should it?

I've heard some talking with a broader Lancashire accent than we have, and all polite.

My doctor is a Muslim, speaks better English than me and is, obviously far more intelligent. Good golfer too, he was playing off a 3 last time I asked.

Yes that's all well and good but have you ever tried having a conversation with them ??

Posted by: tonker (19344)   Report abuse
I've had loads of conversations with quite a few Muslims.

Why d'you ask?

Have any of you ever tried talking to a Jehovah's Witness ...

Posted by: Stardelta (6255) Report abuse
Yes, whenever I visit my doctor!!!!!

I was talking to an Irishman on the phone last week and couldn’t understand him.

And I do believe there's Protestants and Catholics also speaking with Lancashire accents.
And someone once told me there's a Mormon in Darwin who also has a Lancashire brogue and is the nicest man you could ever meet!

Isn't it strange how your religion doesn't stop you having an accent or being a decent person.
Stranger still that some people think it would!

aitch , do you talk to Jews ? Irish catholics Budists , Sikhs , or worse of all Protestant Americans ? .
Well you must lead a sheltered life.
Wake up and smell the roses

I talk to anyone I never considered religion to be a problem with a good chat although the worst that I have had or tried to have is a chat with the Mormons who come around frequently

Posted by: ayrefield (4463) Report abuse
chatty and stardelta, are they the same poster, it isn't difficult to understand why they find the majority of folk more intelligent.

When the Jehovah's Witnesses call, I pretend to be an even greater religious bigot than they are. They very quickly bugger off.

Posted by: momac (8830)  Report abuse
I just tell them I'm a Roman Catholic no thank you,it always works.

Posted by: ayrefield (4463) Report abuse
They are polite when they knock at your door, so be polite back, a simple no thank you as momac says will always suffice, it's when folk go off on one that makes their day, they think they are being victimised. see Matthew 5:11

I know someone who opened her door and shouted at them "We're
Catholic in here"..then slammed the door in their faces I couldn't believe it..nice Christian...NOT.

Posted by: chatty (5977)  Report abuse
ayrefield, anyone who posts on here asking others if they've ever spoken to or seen people of a certain religion playing particular sports as if they are a different species isn't in the majority of the folk you for some reason think I find more intelligent!

Posted by: chatty (5977)  Report abuse
As for "how many Muslims do you see playing games such as football"....
How about:
Marouane Fellaini
Paul Pogba (I bet that cheers laughing boy up no end)
Sadio Mane
Emre Can,
Mohamed Salah,
N’Golo Kanté
Mesut Özil
İlkay Gündoğan
Riyad Mahrez.... just a few of the dozens that play in the Premiership every week!

Rugby League.


"Trailblazer Ikram Butt made history by becoming the first British Muslim to represent England at either rugby code when he appeared for England against Wales in the European Rugby League Championship in 1995, dispelling the myth that such physical sports did not appeal to those with an Asian heritage"

The truth is out there

Sir No Farah,

I suppose some people think he is a Welsh Baptist and got his knighthood out of a cornflake box.
