Democrats in congress voted to recognize Islam as "one the of the great religions of the world" and condemned the persecution of Muslims around the world. They also voted to honor the Islamic holiday of Ramadan. Now there's nothing wrong with condemning the persecution of anyone or respecting the religion of anyone, but there is something wrong when Democrats vote for religious tolerance for Muslims but refuse to do the same for Christians, especially when it is known that Christians are the most persecuted people in the world, more than any other peoples around the world.
The Ramadan resolution began:
Whereas Ramadan is the holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal for Muslims worldwide, and is the 9th month of the Muslim calendar year; and Whereas the observance of the Islamic holy month of Ramandan commenced at dusk on September 13, 2007, and continues for one lunar month:"
The Christmas resolution began:
Whereas Christmas, a holiday of great significance to Americans and many other cultures and nationalities, is celebrated annually by Christians throughout the United States and the world... Whereas on December 25 of each calendar year, American Christians observe Christmas, the holiday celebrating the birth of their savior, Jesus Christ...Whereas many Christians and non-Christians throughout the United States and the rest of the world, celebrate Christmas as a time to serve others:"
The Democrats that voted yes to Islam and No to Christianity are:
Gary Ackerman and Yvette Clarke of N.Y., Alcee Hastings, FL, Barbara Lee, Fortney Stark and Lynn Woolsey, CA, Jim McDermott, WA, Robert Scott, VA and Diane DeGette, CO.
This just shows that liberal Democrats want to stray farther and farther away from the values that this country was founded on. It's ridiculous this even happened in this country, which was founded "under God."
I believe that it is now evident, to those who denied it, that there is a war on Christmas in the United States and liberals are to blame. If any of these idiotic Democrats are representing your district, then you need to let them hear your voice and let them know that Christians founded this country and that Christmas is an American holiday. Let them know that the persecution of Christians deserves the same condemnation as the persecution of any other people.
Thank you for reading and God Bless.
