Skip to comments.DNC plans 2-hour Islamic prayer after rejecting blessing from Cardinal

The Democratic National Committee is raising a number of eyebrows after choosing to proceed with hosting Islamic Jumah prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention, though it denied a Catholic cardinals request to say a prayer at the same event.
Watch the promotional video, via the Bureau of Muslim Affairs, which is partnering with the DNC for the event.
The first two minutes are rather dry, but around 2:04 a muezzin sings the call to prayer with an American flag background, and the video picks up considerably:

The Democrats are extremely open about their agenda. No one should be surprised by their actions. Ending the manned space program and reorienting NASA to Islamic outreach. Calling the Fort Hood shootings a workplace incident. Celebrating Ramadan while ignoring the national day of prayer. Supporting CAIR and the Islamic brotherhood. Filling the military and Homeland Security with Islamists. It is all pretty clear to me.
Obama is a islamic muslim - step by step he is ruining our country. I weep for the countless lives lost in wars defending our freedoms - only to be destroyed in four short years by this POS.
I heard on Laura Ingraham’s show this morning that the cardinal was going to say a prayer at the DNC confab as well. No?
satan always overplays his hand.
Fox news says Dolan WILL be at the DNC
Cardinal Dolan giving equal time to both parties, agrees to pray at Dem convention

Cardinal Timothy Dolan will end up giving equal time to both parties, agreeing give the closing prayer at the Democratic convention next week after making the same commitment for the Republicans.
When it was announced last week that Dolan had accepted the Republican National Convention invite, critics claimed it made it seem as if the Catholic Church was siding with the GOP.
Dolan, New York’s archbishop and president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, has led the battle for the church against President Obama’s so-called contraceptive mandate.
But his office confirmed Tuesday that he will give the benediction next week in Charlotte for the Democrats, after doing so at the Republican National Convention this week in Tampa.
In a statement released by the New York Archdiocese regarding the DNC invite, spokesman Joe Zwilling said, “It was made clear to the Democratic Convention organizers, as it was to the Republicans, that the Cardinal was coming solely as a pastor, only to pray, not to endorse any party, platform, or candidate. The Cardinal consulted Bishop Peter Jugis of the Diocese of Charlotte, who gave the Cardinal his consent to take part in the convention that will be taking place in his diocese.”
Even some left-leaning Catholics had been critical of Dolan’s initial move to pray at the GOP convention only. Michael O’Loughlin wrote in the a post for the website of America magazine, a Jesuit weekly, that “Cardinal Dolan’s appearance in Tampa will damage the church’s ability to be a moral and legitimate voice for the voiceless, as those who view the Catholic Church as being a shill for the GOP have just a bit more evidence to prove their case.”
At the same time, Dolan himself said he had made it known to the Democrats that he would also like to offer his ecclesiastical voice to their gathering as well.
When the DNC made no such offer immediately, many assumed it was a snub. The Catholic League’s Bill Donohue said: “The Republicans are smart enough to get the ‘pope of America’, and the Democrats are stupid enough not to invite him.”
Now that the Democrats have extended the invitation and Dolan has accepted,
My head is spinning around and I’m throwing up on my shoe.
That will be TWO HOURS of unintelligible mumbo jumbo that will pre-empt the dnc agenda, and delay the “business of the convention!
Makes for GREAT TV Coverage! hahahahahahaha
what’s the betting that this will not be reported up north on their local channels, their local news and certainly the national programs and news.
No Christians but scchh don’t tell the public we still need their vote and can you imagine what this muslim loving idiot will do if he ever got a second term?
course they’re open about this and other issues as they knwo the media has their back and not report this especially up north in mostly Catholic areas like PA, NJ, NY, DE, MD, NH, a swing state this time, NM, and CA out west
One day the dems are going to find out that living under Sharia Law wasn’t worth uniting with muzzies in their shared hatred of Christianity.
DUH!!! if they aren't already they should be!
Obama must have his multi-state voter fraud aperatus all ready to go.
“satan always overplays his hand.”
a bunch of homosexuals and a bynch of muslims,
it;s sounds like a joke, I;m hearing the nuts for Ron Paul and thnking O no how they don’t act liek this all the time and instead show some class but after reading this then muslims and homosexuals , LOL
Oh yea homosexuals you are intolerant, muslims you are intolerant.
Both play the victim card, both are appeased by the socialist party and both have no clue what gives us our rights and how laws are done
Be great for bozo to mention he;s for the homo’s and turd pokers whilst 20 000 muslims are there too.
“satan always overplays his hand.”
Shall we say that he is unable “to read the handwriting on the wall”?
Hmmm looks like they’ll be hosting Cardinal Dolan after all. No doubt this is because some of their most voter-savvy advisors had an “oh-sh*t” moment when they realized how bad they looked
From the 24th though.....looks like they changed their mind?
This moron is playing to 0.8% of the populace, and infuriating 99.2% of it.
Don’t let your head explode. Just enjoy watching everyone elses, once this guy follows through.
I think he’s shooting for 0.8% of the vote this election. I hope he meets his goal.
