Today I stumbled upon this little gem.
City Council Meetings to Begin with Muslim Prayers
The Council announced Tuesday that it has invited local imams to perform Islamic invocations at the beginning of the Council meetings in September.
Though meetings don’t regularly begin with any form of prayer, an email from the Common Council called it “an act of solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters.”
The email even referenced the ongoing issue in New York. “One of the goals of the Council is to give a voice to the many diverse peoples of the City, which is especially important given the recent anti-Islam events throughout the country.”
Council President Jo Winch called it an important move for the Council. “I feel it is very important that, as a Council, we project a culture of inclusiveness in the City of Hartford. Too often it is our differences that divide us. In my opinion, it is our combination of differences that makes us strong,” Winch said.

Where is the separation of church and state? If the council never starts with a prayer why do so now. This baffles me to no end. Earlier this week Muslims in Afghanistan burned the US flag and chanted “Death to America!” Muslims (extremist muslims) hate everything the US stands for and here Conn. is holding out their hand only to have it cut off. tolerance is one thing but this Bullshit has got to go. Take a stand if one side is not willing to bend you will gain nothing for your charity. When law-abiding muslims refuse to stand up and denounce their extremist counter-parts you know that something smells fishy.
Stop trying to appease these people and stick to your guns. They only respect force.
