Liberal NYC mayor de Blasio: Let’s close public schools for Muslim holidays

Bill De BlasioHow many Muslims does it take to close New York City Public Schools? The answer is 69,985 — roughly 21/2500 of the total population of the Big Apple — going by the most recent demographic breakdown (2000 Census).

The scant size of the Muslim community hasn’t deterred the city’s new absurdly liberal mayor, Bill de Blasio, from pushing to close city schools for two Muslim holidays and the Lunar New Year. The Daily News reports (h/t Weasel Zippers) that hizzoner appeared on WNYC’s “Brian Lehrer Show” on Monday, where he announced his plan to publicly observe the Muslim holy days of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, as well as the Islamic New Year, with school closures. Said the mayor:

A&E Suspends Phil Robertson Indefinitely For Anti Gay Beliefs.  In an interview with GQ Magazine, Robertson said he couldn’t understand a man preferring another man’s anus over a woman’s vagina.  This is far from the first time A&E have tried to rein in the Robertson’s Christian beliefs.  Duck Dynasty is by far their most popular program and there is little doubt that if they cancelled it, stations across America would be fighting for the chance to put them on the air.

“We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the series Duck Dynasty.  His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

School gives children opportunity to explore other religions … and they better take it

Rotten appleOh, no, not the dreaded “permanent record.” In England, it’s evidently called “educational record,” but it’s the same deal — a stain on your child’s reputation that will dog him for the rest of his (the school hopes) miserable life.

Daniel Hannan, writing at The Telegraph, shares a letter sent to parents of eight-year-old students at Littleton Green Community School, in South Staffordshire. The document is reproduced here. It references a “statutory requirement” that “Primary school aged children” — elementary school-aged in our neck of the woods — “experience and learn about different cultures.” If that includes absorbing the customs and beliefs of other religions, including hypothetical faiths that advocate slaughtering heathen disbelievers, so be it.

Al Gore claims Republicans ‘privately’ say they believe global warming dogma

gw-al-gore-fireLast Thursday, the Washington Times said that Al Gore is now claiming that Republicans are “privately” telling him they believe in the religious dogma known as the man-made global warming hoax.

“A lot of Republicans have shared with me privately their growing discomfort with the statements of some of the deniers in their ranks. Even though they’re not yet willing to come back to advocate constructive policies, there is definitely movement,” he said.

Christians are in danger of being wiped-out, namely in the Middle East according to a release published yesterday by Civitas, Institute for the Study of Civil Society.

Christians are in danger of being wiped-out, namely in the Middle East according to a release published yesterday by Civitas, Institute for the Study of Civil Society and reported by the Paulding County Republican Examiner.

In the release, Civitas stated, “Christianity is in serious danger of being wiped out in its biblical heartlands because of Islamic oppression, according to a new report from a leading independent think-tank. But Western politicians and media largely ignore the widespread persecution of Christians in the Middle East and the wider world because they are afraid they will be accused of racism.” Continue reading

Liberal bumper sicker: “In Obama We Trust”

In Obama we Trust.

Bumper sticker: In Obama we Trust

While cruising around on Facebook, I happened across a photo of a bumper sticker that made me do a double-take.

“In Obama We Trust,” the sticker read, a clear reference to the national motto, “In God We Trust.”

“What?” I asked myself.  Surely this must be a joke.
