In Canada this week, they aired a new show called "Little Mosque on the Prairie".
Apparently, this is supposed to be somewhat of a funny take on being Muslim in a rural community in this great country. I'm not sure because I didn't watch it.
I thought about watching it in the interest of seeing how they would cast a humourous twist on what was sure to be a bunch of situations involving white people misunderstanding the well-meaning, honest, hard-working Muslim family who, no doubt, disavowed terrorism and hugged their Christian and Jewish neighbours. Well, okay, maybe not Jewish...most of us are smart enough not to wind up living in Black Fly Bite, Manitoba or Wind Blowing Shit In My Eye, Saskatchewan.
Anyway, after I thought about watching it, I had a different thought which was: "hell, why bother? It's not like there's anything unusual about people moving to Canada and freely practising their religion."
Nope, nothing unusual at all. But, feel free to call me when they make a show called Little Catholic Church in Riyadh or Little Synagogue in Amman.
Now, that would be different.
