A series of Muslim Outreach Summits
are planned coast-to-coast by the Obama administration to get feedback
from Muslims on how the government can better serve them and their
The Hussein Obama’s adopted home town of Chicago will be the first stop.You know, there’s a reason for the separation of church and state thingy that the Constitution establishes. It’s not that I specifically don’t think the government should reach out to Muslims. I don’t think the government should reach out to any religions… Why is the government going to cater to some religions like Muslims and then demonize others (currently Christians)?
What in the world does religion have to do with government? In the past several decades numerous lawsuits have been won against schools and courthouses who had historic biblical references such as the ten commandments hanging on a wall. The reason? Stuff that has to do with religion, churches, God, etc, just simply don’t belong in places that are paid for by tax dollars. No one should force their religious views on others, but the government certainly shouldn’t be allowed to force a religious view on others. The government isn’t allowed to promote religious symbolism or ideologies. Too much intermingling of public funding and religious ideology for the comfort of many atheists.
Yet no one minds when the federal government decides that Muslims are now the new “in crowd” and begins to cater to their desires and decides that Christians are now the fabled “step child”. Should the government be catering to anyone? Should the government even care what religion you are? No! Catering costs money… Just ask a wedding planner.
So let’s get this straight: You can’t cater to Christians because the government is never supposed to intermingle between religions and government-run, taxpayer-funded organizations. It’s unconstitutional and unfair. However, the government needs to reach out to Muslims because they need to have their needs met by government programs and need to be made to feel right at home in America.
And now, at least one school is putting prayer back in school… but only for Muslims… What gives?
