NY Public Schools: More Islamic Pandering


The Education Committee of the New York City Council has approved two new Muslim holidays, Eid Ul-Fitr and Eid Ul-Adha, to be added to the school calendar, according to newsmax.com. How politically correct of them. AAARRRGGGHHH!

From Catholic League president Bill Donohue:

On January 14, I testified before this very same committee requesting equal rights for Catholics: Jewish and Islamic religious symbols are displayed in the schools every December, but Christian symbols are banned. With the exception of Councilman Tony Avella, and a few others, the Education Committee showed no interest in appeasing Catholics. But its members are apparently capable of demonstrating great sensitivity to Muslims. Speaker Christine Quinn, who was raised Catholic—and who has shown no interest in the push for parity that the Catholic League wants—is now urging all City Councilmen to vote for this new round of Muslim rights.

What’s at work is the politics of multiculturalism: tolerance for some, intolerance for others. But this fight isn’t over yet. Where do I enlist?

They work to remove Christmas and call it winter break and then they throw this crap in our face?

It's all for the sake of the children, Clay!! :-D
Really, they have gotten WAY outta hand with it. I just thank God that our local elementary school, where all my kids have gone, still sing "Away in a Manger (with all the words)" and "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing" at the CHRISTMAS program. I couldn't hack big-city life.
