The Daily Caller: “PHILADELPHIA — The Democratic National Convention has curtained off several “interfaith” spaces for prayer, but the only sign of religion in any of the spaces is Islam.
Convention goers looking to get in touch with the god of their choice can visit the “Interfaith Prayer Room” on the first floor of the Wells Fargo Center, which consists of a series of spaces sectioned off by curtains. A sign hangs over the first space, which is simply an empty room.
The second area has a few chairs and some prayer mats. A third large space is set up to accommodate Muslims, with a mat set up on the floor presumably facing Mecca and a sanitizing station so Muslims can wash before they pray.
A fourth space is another large empty room. Aside from Islam, no sign of any other religion was present.
Opinion: The obvious answer is that a cross might upset Muslims and according to the left-leaning Washington Post, the number of Muslim delegates attending the Democratic National Convention has quadrupled since 2004, according to a Muslim advocacy group.
“The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations counts more than 100 Muslim delegates representing some 20 states at the Democratic convention in Charlotte, N.C., this week. That’s up from 25 delegates in 2004, according to CAIR.”
The sad part of this story is that we now have an answer as to why out of 61 speakers on Monday not 1 mentioned ISIS.
