Obama Denies Catholic Cardinal’s Request to Say Prayer at DNC

Comments Off on Obama Denies Catholic Cardinal’s Request to Say Prayer at DNC

And you wonder why people keep saying Obama is a Muslim.

UPDATE:

Though Cardinal Dolan was originally not going to speak at the DNC, on Monday it was announced that he will now be giving the closing prayer.

In a move that some will certainly deem shocking, Cardinal Timothy Dolan says he’ll now be giving the closing prayer at both the Democratic and Republican conventions. The New York Roman Catholic leader made the fascinating announcement Tuesday through his spokesman.

Read the full story, here.

Barack Obama turned down the top US bishop’s request to say a prayer at the DNC in Charlotte in September.
Obama doesn’t like his politics.


The New York Post reported, via Weasel Zippers:

President Obama turned down a chance to have Timothy Cardinal Dolan deliver a prayer at the Democratic National Convention after Dolan told Democrats he would be “grateful” to deliver a blessing in Charlotte.

Dolan — considered the top Catholic official in the nation, as head of the Archdiocese of New York and president of the Conference of Catholic Bishops — tipped off Democrats a few weeks ago that he had agreed to deliver the prime-time benediction at the Republican convention in Tampa next week, Dolan’s spokesman Joseph Zwilling told The Post.

President Thin-Skin doesn’t appreciate the Cardinal’s stance in opposing his HHS abortion mandate.

But this isn’t all of the story……now we have this as well.

Starting at the end of this month the Democratic National Convention
will open with a focus on Islam. 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend
according to the.Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs (BIMA), the national Muslim American non-profit coordinating the two days of events they claim are non-political. ”Jumah at the DNC
begins August 29 and will start with a Friday afternoon jummah prayer
followed by other unnamed programs and events, leading up to the Islamic
Regal Banquet.

The following day will be an all day Islamic Cultural
and Fun Fest which will include discussions on the topics
of Islamaphobia, Anti-Shariah, Middle Eastern Crisis, Patriot Act,
National Defense Authorization Act and more.

The purpose, according to  BIMA, is to attract national and international attention to the plight of American Muslims and to hold political parties accountable for issues that affect them. However, not all Muslims feel that BIMA represents them and M. Zuhdi Jasser M.D., Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, has expressed serious concerns.

Do Crosses at Catholic University Violate “Human Rights” of Muslims?

2 Comments

Is this about the stupidest thing you’ve ever heard of or what?   If they don’t like a cross at a Catholic University, then don’t go there or take an online course. So I guess we’re all just going to have to do things that violate our conscience in order not to offend a muslim and to keep them from violated their consciences. Would a muslim university put up crosses in a room for Christians to pray? You know they wouldn’t.

The Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights confirmed that it is investigating allegations that Catholic University violated the human rights of Muslim students by not allowing them to form a Muslim student group and by not providing them rooms without Christian symbols for their daily prayers.

The investigation alleges that Muslim students “must perform their prayers surrounded by symbols of Catholicism – e.g., a wooden crucifix, paintings of Jesus, pictures of priests and theologians which many Muslim students find inappropriate.”

A spokesperson for the Office of Human Rights told Fox News they had received a 60-page complaint against the private university. The investigation, they said, could take as long a six months.

The complaint was filed by John Banzhaf, an attorney and professor at George Washington University Law School. Banzhaf has been involved in previous litigation against the school involving the same-sex residence halls. He also alleged in his complaint involving Muslim students that women at the university were being discriminated against. You can read more on those allegations by clicking here.

Banzhaf said some Muslim students were particularly offended because they had to meditate in the school’s chapels “and at the cathedral that looms over the entire campus – the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.”

“It shouldn’t be too difficult somewhere on the campus for the university to set aside a small room where Muslims can pray without having to stare up and be looked down upon by a cross of Jesus,” he told Fox News.

A spokesman for Catholic University released a statement to Fox News indicating they had not seen any legal filings — but would respond once they do.

“Our faithfulness to our Catholic tradition has also made us a welcome home to students of other religions,” said  Victor Nakas, associate vice president for public affairs. “No students have registered complaints about the exercise of their religions on our campus.”

In a 2010 interview with National Public Radio, university president John Garvey acknowledged that they don’t set aside prayer rooms for Muslim students.

“We make classrooms available, or our chapels are places where they can pray,” he told NPR. “We don’t offer Halal meat, although there are always meals that conform to Halal regulations, that allow students to do what they want.”

Banzhaf said that it is technically not illegal for Catholic University to refuse to provide rooms devoid of religious icons.

“It may not be illegal, but it suggests they are acting improperly and probably with malice,” he said. “They do have to pray five times a day, they have to look around for empty classrooms and to be sitting there trying to do Muslim prayers with a big cross looking down or a picture of Jesus or a picture of the Pope  is not very conductive to their religion.”

As for the creation of a Muslim student group, Banzhaf said the university has an association of Jewish students – so why not a Muslim group?

Trial begins in suit against proposed Tennessee mosque

Comments Off on Trial begins in suit against proposed Tennessee mosque

Opponents of a proposed new mosque in Tennessee will get to make their arguments at trial beginning today, Wednesday, April 25, 2012.

A legal battle over public notice in Rutherford County’s approval of a mosque site could affect Tennessee’s definition of a newspaper as well as guidelines for how and where governments can advertise their meetings.

In a two-day trial that starts today, plaintiffs will argue that the county government failed to provide adquate public notice of its May 2010 Rutherford County Regional Planning Commission meeting, where officials were to vote on a site plan for a new mosque for the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.

“In this case, the issue should be whether the published notice should have included more information about the agenda, not which publication,” Frank Gibson, public policy for the Tennessee Press Association, told The DNJ this week.

The public notice published in the Murfreesboro Post did not state that mosque site approval was on the agenda because Rutherford County’s zoning laws allow places of worship to be treated the same as residential developments. No rezoning was required; therefore, no public hearing was needed before the planning commission reviewed the site plan and voted.

Chancellor Robert Corlew III has ruled already that Islam is a religion and that the ICM holds First Amendments rights to build the mosque. Work on the first phase of the building next to Grace Baptist Church on Veals Road off Bradyville Pike, just outside Murfreesboro, started in September 2011 and is nearing completion.

Comments Off on Muslims Demand All Citizens Stop Celebrating Christmas Or There Will Be Hell To Pay!

This is why we don’t need to let Muslims get a foot hold in America. MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE !!!

Faithful Muslim leaders in Europe and their allies in United States begin a campaign to stop all of us from wishing each other “Merry Christmas”. According to their document just released, we should all go to hell for even putting up Christmas lights. They threaten “hell to pay” on those who celebrate the birth of our God and Savior Jesus Christ.

Will you be intimidated this year and only say “happy holidays”, or “seasons greetings”, or hide your Christmas tree in schools and censor Christianity from the front of our public buildings out of fear of muslim terrorist retaliation if you dare celebrate the most important event in all of history?

To find out more of the demands from terror supporting muslims, watch this expose on the one demanding all Christmas celebrations to stop:

ABC network set to attack Christianity with “Good Christian B-tches” show

What will they think of next?

For Heaven’s sake, don’t let God get in the way of a good story!” – GCB author Kim Gatlin

March 7, 2011

The ABC network is currently working on a pilot for a prime-time program called “Good Christian B-tches.”

It’s a Christian-bashing version of ABC’s current “Desperate Housewives.” The show centers on a recently divorced mother of two who moves back to the affluent neighborhood where she grew up to find herself in the whirling midst of gossip, Botox and fraud.

Disney-owned ABC has no reservations about creating hate speech against Christians, but you can be sure they would never consider a show called “Good Muslim B-tches” or “Good Jewish B-tches.”

With a title like “Good Christian B-tches,” you can imagine what kind of show it will be. Even if they change the title, the content will still mock people of faith.

TAKE ACTION

Sign a petition to ABC and parent company Disney to drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program “Good Christian B-tches.”

We’ll add your petition to thousands of other voices in also urging advertisers to place it on their “do not advertise” list and consider pulling all ads from the ABC network in protest of this Anti-Christian bigotry.

Please let your local ABC station know that you will pressure local advertisers to pull their advertising business from the show and station, should it choose to air the program. You can find your local station’s contact information here.

Is Obama a Christian? We report you Decide

Comments Off on Is Obama a Christian? We report you Decide

Why does Obama have everything related to him sealed up and is paying attorneys Lord knows now much to keep everything related to him sealed up? Any honest answer would be he has to be covering up something. What is he covering up…..I’m not sure, but he’s hiding something. Maybe the fact that when he went to the Indonesian school and was adopted he gave up is US citizenship? And when he got it back some time in the future he was classified as a “naturalized citizen” because he can’t get the ‘natural born’ designation back? Maybe the fact that he was declared a Muslim on his school records and when he went to college here in the States he declared himself a ‘foreign student’? None of this can be denied because  no one has seen the paper work to deny it. And all of it is a possibility. We also know that the Founding Fathers definition of “natural born” was that both parents were to be US citizens, not just one. Obama’s father was a dual citizen of Kenyan/British subject, that is admitted by Obama himself. So yes, like it or not, there are many legitimate reasons to still question Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of the President of the US legally.

Coming to your town: More TSA Checkpoints and Patrols

2 Comments

I’ve been saying this type thing was coming for a while now. They’ll even have roving check points on our highways with the TSA in due time if we don’t buck it. This is all unconstitutional.I don’t think the American people will put up this this much “security”. Being stopped everywhere and checked all the time without warrants or probable cause? Come on now. This is not Nazi Germany and we don’t need to give up our liberties to be safe like the government wants us to.

Ben Franklin wisely said, “They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. And he’s right, because the more liberty you give up to the government, the more you become enslaved to them.
