from Creeping Sharia:
Why are ‘Iftar dinners’ being promoted by schools, churches and official government offices?
When powerful people in our communities start promoting one specific religion, giving it special prominence not offered to others, it’s time to wake up and ask questions.
Nowhere is this special treatment more obvious than during the month of Ramadan, the 30 days of fasting and special prayers that ends with the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Fitr. Each night the fast is broken with an Iftar dinner. During Ramadan, we see Iftar dinners being openly promoted and in some cases even co-sponsored by local governments and attended/promoted by politicians.
White House Ramadan dinner
President Trump’s White House even got into the act. Trump hosted an Iftar dinner this week, a truly shocking change of policy over last year when the president decided to break with the tradition started by President Clinton, who hosted the first White House Ramadan meal in 1996 [it was actually Hillary’s idea not Bill’s].
President George W. Bush continued the tradition, as did President Obama, who declared upon being elected that “American is no longer a Christian nation” and was eager to put meat on the bones of that statement by taking advantage of every opportunity to honor Islam.
Ramadan in the schools
New York City public schools have since 2016 remained closed on the Islamic holiday of Eid, even as the school system has eliminated Christian holidays in favor of secular “breaks.” Easter has been replaced by “spring break” and Christmas with “winter break.”
Franklin High School in Seattle rescheduled its prom and senior breakfast to avoid disrupting Ramadan. The school last year also interrupted its late-night graduation ceremony and provided loaves of bread for graduates to break their fast.
