Obama Campaign Will Hold Muslim Jumah at DNC – But Won’t Let Catholic Cardinal Lead Prayer

It’s an Obama world.
The Obama Campaign will sponsor an Islamic Jumah at the DNC in September. Obama’s DNC lists the assembly as an “official function.”

Robert Spencer wrote this about the DNC Jumah:

But the most disturbing aspect of the entire “Jumah at the DNC” is not the obvious victimhood-mongering of its agenda, but the people involved. The Democrats are playing host to an unsavory gang of Islamic supremacists with numerous ties to jihad groups. Even this is not surprising, but it should be a matter of concern to any Americans who are more aware of the jihad threat than the average politically correct Democrat pol.

But, as Atlas Shrugs pointed out, the Obama Campaign denied Catholic Cardinal request to lead prayer at the convention.

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.

    Freedom of religion Mr Hoft means freedom from religion as well. Muslim Americans are just as American as Catholic Americans.

    Now do you believe he’s a muzzie?

    Ever notice how much the Democrats side with all things evil?
    The culture of death in abortion and euthanasia,
    Theft from future generations (debt); theft from current taxpayers (welfare galore including funds and funds to foreign countries and hellholes),
    Increasing the size and scope of government at all levels,
    Increasing all levels of taxation,
    The favoring of Islam,
    The suppression of Christianity which predictably will worsen,
    The embrace of communist and socialist thug governments,

    Sarah Bloch, you are dead wrong. Freedom OF Religion absolutely does NOT mean Freedom FROM religion. Your understanding of the Constitution is flawed.

    In any case, Muslim Americans should not receive preeminence over Catholic Americans or Baptist Americans or Jewish Americans.

    Have you got a list of religious events connected with the DNC that other religious groups are involved in? Didn’t think so . . .

  • Joe Blow

    #1 perhaps you haven’t noticed that the Democrats and Obama have a tendency to suppress the Christians and Jews all the while pushing Islam.

  • Emilie Green

    #1, Bloch,

    You couldn’t be more wrong.

    Muslims prove the point over and over again. Namely, that they are loyal only to Islam, and to nothing else. Explaining why Muslims can never be trusted and never be considered loyal Americans, British, French, Italian, Australian, and so forth. They represent an enemy living among us.

    Here in America, as elsewhere, they are out for colonization and conquest. They cannot be considered Americans because of their adoption of Islam. Sharia (total government) and American constitutional principles (government contained/controlled by the people) couldn’t be farther apart.

    There is no such concept as a Muslim American.

    At best and at most they can only be described as “Muslims who live in America.”

    Thanks for the lecture Ms. Bloch. Perhaps we can expect a repudiation of violent jihad from all these decent “Muslim Americans” and a recognition of Israel’s right to exist in peace? You know, from the people “just as American as Catholic Americans”?

    When pigs fly, right?

  • pantone1987

    Islam is not a “religion of peace”. Islam is not a religion. Islam is hate. Islam is death.

    Sadly, I bet 50% of Catholics will still vote for this idiot in the White House.

    So, is there anyone who thinks Obama ISN’T a muslim now. Would a Christian deny a Christian priest from delivering a prayer at the DNC? Muslims are liars.

    Just a point to make – the polls are probably skewed big time showing a close race between Obama and Romney, when in fact Obama is most likely trailing a mile behind. This way after all of Obama’s fraudulent practices are put into effect, it will look like he squeaked in. If the actual polling numbers showed Obama way behind, people would see how extensive his election fraud has been, and this is if he even allows an election to take place.

    Sarah Bloch, get a clue. Obama portrayed himself as a Christian to get elected, but is in fact a muslim. Why do you think he did that? A predominately Christian nation led by a muslim? Islam is not a religion and practicing muslims are about as American as Mohammed, their demonic prophet is an American.

  • Joe Blow

    I should also add that if reelected I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Obama “deems” it is the right thing to do to put Sharia Law in place.

    actually it’s totally believable, that’s whats so sad

  • Marmo

    The Democrat party has officially jumped the shark. Imagine, a political party promoting one religion to the exclusion of all others. That, Sarah Bloch, is exactly what the first amendment to the Constitution does not allow.

    Quick check all the mental institutions, I believe one of them has a person by the name Sarah that has escaped.
    On second thought maybe Jug Ears had her released to speak at the Democratic convention…

    “Freedom of religion Mr Hoft means freedom from religion as well.” by Sarah Bloch

    It doesn’t mean this at all. America was founded on Christian beliefs and all her laws are founded on the Word of God. Muslims follow Sharia Laws, which are in the complete opposite spectrum of evil and are founded on the Word of the followers of Satan. If you support Islam, you support pedophilia, because Islam supports pedophilia. Are you a pedophile, Sarah, because only a pedophile would support muslims to have the right to practice their sick ideology?

  • Sarah

    The GOP should be hammering away on this like crazy. But they won’t.

  • http://none tommy mc donnell

    its not just obama, its the entire democratic party. the party of suppression of religion under the guise of the not in the constitution principle of sepration of church and state seems to be willing to submit to muslim superiority at every turn. the atheists better watch out, islam is on the verge of subplanting atheism as the official religion of the democratic party.

  • Joanne

    “Muslims follow Sharia Laws, which are in the complete opposite spectrum of evil and are founded on the Word of the followers of Satan.”

    I should reword this sentence. Muslims follow sharia laws, which are the complete opposite to the Laws of God Almighty, and sharia laws are founded on the Word of the followers of Satan/Satan.

  • Lance o Lot

    The Left is operating under the canard that My Enemy’s Enemy is My Friend. And since Christians are the enemy of the Left, they embrace Radical Islam to help them destroy Christianity. They should pause and reflect on how well that has worked for the European left. They should watch how the EuroCommies attack dogs have turned and bitten their masters.

  • Sarah

    #1 – I think the element you are missing is that thousands of innocent people are killed every single year in the name of Islam. That Islam has declared war against the West (and has been waging war for a very long time). This isn’t conjecture, it’s the facts. They are saying: We want to kill you. Historically the left have been aligned with Islamofascists and they still are today – in Europe and here in America. This is the reality we are facing. Wake up and educate yourself.

    In the Flyer, the photo 4th from the left, shows a guy in uniform. That is a violation of military rules.
