Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is in the news and free.

So let’s talk about Passover. During Passover the Invisible Magic Friend passed over those houses that had lamb’s blood on them. (The Invisible Magic Friend obviously couldn’t see inside the houses to tell who were Egyptian.)

The Big Book of Magic Stuff tells us that we must protect the outcast because we were imaginary outcasts in Egypt. Those of you who haven’t been outcasts, either imaginary or otherwise, probably don’t care about outcasts.

How can we happily celebrate the imaginary freedom from enslavement, and the genocide of Egyptian boys, when Uyghurs Muslims are undergoing similar, non-imaginary, persecution?
