define chutzpha.  To stand outside someone’s place of worship with a megaphone and slander their religion.

I especially like the rant at minute 6 of the first video.  We don’t convert to christianity because we don’t want to give up our sin, that we’d rather have a few minutes of pleasure then all of eternity.  Srsly?  Aside from polygamy and not believing in the divinity of Jesus (as), I can’t think of anything muslims are allowed to do that is considered a sin for christians.

If they took down the signs, put away the megaphones, and just tried to engage in dialogue (a’la the Prophet Muhammad), I’d have no issue.  But dudes, a megaphone?

  1. Oh, I don’t mind megaphones in relation to protests in general. It’s just so gauche to stand outside a place of worship before/during/after a worship service and yell at the worshipers.

    Really, if they had wanted to make a positive impact on the people, they could have just stood outside and tried to engage people in dialogue, but all they did was p*ss everyone off.

    Thanks for defining chutzpah. But you misspelled it. Thats really lame practice to use megaphone and disturb the people busy in worship.

    جزاک اللہ خیرا
