No Need to Separate Church and State …

…when the church is Islam.

It continues. Public educational institutions refuse to celebrate holidays that are Christian, Jewish or other religions, but Islam gets a pass. California students have dressed like Muslims, taken Muslim names and proclaimed “There is but one god … Allah.

Here’s the latest example.

The University of Michigan-Flint is listed as the “organizer” and “contact” for a June 7 Muslim religious celebration on campus, according to screenshots shared with The College Fix.

“Please join UM-Flint at an Iftar feast and breaking of the fast. The entire UM-Flint community is welcome to partake in this gathering and celebration,” reads the invitation shared with The Fix by Prof. Mark Perry.

It continues: “Iftar is the meal eaten by Muslims after sunset during the holy month of Ramadan, when observing Muslims abstain from food and water during the daytime.”

The email screenshot lists Pam Zemore, community relations specialist in the university advancement office, as the contact for the event.

“Chancellor’s Office” is the department responsible for hosting the June 7 event, according to a UM-Flint calendar listing that remains live as of Thursday afternoon. This listing says the contact for the event is Dru Doran, executive assistant to the chancellor.

Prof. Perry also shared a screenshot of a subsequent invitation he received that replaces the university as the organizer with the “Muslim Student Association and the Saudi Student Club.” This invitation still lists Zemore, the university advancement employee, as the contact.

Perry’s email correspondence with Zemore, also shared with The Fix, shows that he inquired about the university’s role in the event after business hours on Friday, asking how it can serve as organizer when the University of Michigan itself includes a disclaimer that “as a public institution [it] does not observe religious holidays.”

Zemore responded Monday that the event “is intended to help develop cultural awareness within our campus community, not as a religious event”:

Therefore, it is open to all members of the UM-Flint community, regardless of their religious beliefs. We have been advised by the Office of the General Counsel that holding a cultural event such as this does not violate the policies you cited.

    Islam is the WELDING of church (mosque) & State. In fact, the Koran is more about gaining & wielding POWER than anything else.

    It is a false religion that gains adherents by promising them control over others. Anyone who doesn’t go along with the scheme is to be enslaved or killed.

    Too bad about the change in Starbucks policy.
    Would have been fun to walk in with a bucket of KFC and sit down for a meal LOL.
    Why buy anything when you can have a space for free?

    People are mocking Obama advisor Ben Rhodes piece on how devastated he was by the Hilary loss.

    bc3b, folks everywhere are watching what’s happening in Venezuela.

    Rational people look at what’s happening in Venezuela and say: “Oh my God…that’s HORRIBLE!!

    the Ruling “Elite” in Seattle and the People Republik of Kalifornia look at what’s happening in Venezuela and say: “Hold my joint!!

    these are the “Crazy Years” that Robert Heinlein predicted in his ‘Future History’ timeline…they just took longer to blossom, and don’t look to be ending anytime soon.

    Somehow I can’t be too sympathetic with the Venezuelans, as it was after all their belief in “gimmie dat free shit” that got them there.

    4, Jim grab that bucket of chicken. You can still watch the show for free. Their policy change is meant to eject disruptive customers.

    6, Consider that meme stolen.

    8, The best solution to Bee is to ignore her. Trump came out swinging defending his wife. I would do the same.

    14, I am watching VZ very closely. Politics aside, its an interesting look at an industrial economy coming apart. Folks should be taking notes. Its an in-your-face look at what SHTF looks like.

    The People’s Republik of Seattle and the People’s Republik of Kalifornia are “ahead of the curve.” They have discovered something backward states like Michigan, Ohio and North Carolina haven’t: drug-addicted homeless people and uneducated, unskilled, low IQ Illegal immigrants are the key to the future.

    Michigan does dumb things like removing one of the country’s most oppressive corporate business taxes to try to lure business, but Kalifornia and Seattle know what really attracts business: higher taxes, more regulation, homeless people and illegals.

    bc3b, Seattle needs to think outside the box.
    Instead of aggressive taxation to solve homelessness just settle them in Starbucks!

    Shot by a cop.
    The family gets … $4. Yes, that’s right, FOUR dollars.
    ‘Black lives don’t matter,” lawyer says after jury awards family $4 in police killing

    Don’t get drunk and point a gun at a cop, you’ll only get $4 from the
    court for burial expenses.

    Look for the others, especially the brits to do everything they can to distract and obfuscate (or not allow reporting on – at least in-country) their involvement.

  23. 2018 June 1 11:38 am

    22 – Actually they didn’t even get the 4$, they got nothing, also he didn’t point the gun at the cop. All this though predicated on a noise(loud music) complaint. Unreal. Then piggy calls in swat and snipers… after he’s already killed they guy. Cop should be very glad I wasn’t on the jury.

    8 – Says everything doesn’t it?

    14/15 – Agreed, and someone elsewhere will say the same about us soon enough when it happens here, and I will not much blame them for saying it when they do.

    You can bet CNN and the rest of the media will do everything in their power to cover this up.

    Saw earlier this week on Zerohedge, that Venezuela had an inflation rate of 13,680%. That is right – Thirteen Thousand Six Hundred and Eighty Percent.

    Have you heard the left say anything about their favorite Socialist State – crickets.

  27. 2018 June 1 4:31 pm

    27 – nah to them it’s still Obama’s economy, in fact haven’t they pushed that previously…until there is a downturn of course then they’ll jump on it’s Trumps train…lol, you know the game. 😉

    Record oil and gas output as well.

    “Squishy RINO Climate Commie Arnold Schwarzenegger Mocks President Trump for Supporting U.S. Coal Industry, Moronically Compares Coal to Pagers and Blockbuster Video”

    At least when Pagers and BBVideo was around you had a career Arnold, and your name wasn’t synonymous with dog-shit.

    Is he really that stupid that he doesn’t know like world wide coal use is up 45% from around 2000? That we’re the 3rd or 4th largest exporter of it in the world… that as I recall a substantial amount of that flows out through west coast ports (at a minimum creating\supporting jobs in the state he was governor of)? Hey jackass, economies run on energy…even better on cheap energy that countries have easy, plentiful access too, you can’t keep closing or regulating out of existence generation plants, nuke,coal or otherwise and not replace the generation , not without prices ‘necessarily skyrocketing’, and no, ‘renewables’ don’t cut it.
