Meck Commissioner Bill James went on to tweet "I think Democrats will come to regret the opening of this spigot that blurs the lines of church and state. Could be wrong, but we will see."
CP's Take: Can you imagine the backlash over a request to recognize Lent, Advent or The 12 Days of Christmas?
Beyond the church vs state question, there is the timing. Fuller's agenda item popped up not prior to the start of Ramadan several weeks ago, when debate could provide a fair and proper discussion but in the middle of the 30 day religious period.
Several commissioners said they didn't know the proposal was on the agenda.
The proposal was also presented just 48 hours after another horrific attack by several of the religion's "rotten apples".
Recognizing and providing a formal proclamation by government supporting any religion much less a religion whose followers are urged to murder non believers, a religion that by permitting it to exist has cost our nation billions to defend against, is just nutty.
Will the ACLU step in to object? Doubtful.
