Florida: CAIR-ex gets Human Rights position, quickly seeks ban on Christian prayers

You can take an Islamist out of CAIR, but you can’t take the CAIR out of the Islamist. And if you put an ex-CAIR member on a so-called “human rights commission” you can be sure that the rights of most humans will be in danger of sharia law, as proven in this story below. Check out the byline too – the ACLU doesn’t have a problem with Capitol Hill becoming a mosque every Friday, but do in Jacksonville?

ACLU To City: Stop Prayer At Sessions

Group Says Practice Violates Establishment Clause Of Constitution

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The American Civil Liberties Union sent a letter Wednesday to Mayor John Peyton and City Council President Richard Clark asking that the city stop opening council sessions with sectarian prayer.

According to ACLU attorneys, the practice divides the community along religious lines and violates the establishment clause of the constitution. The issue arose when Dr. Parvez Ahmed, a Muslim, was nominated to the Human Rights Commission earlier this year. Councilman Don Redman and Ahmed had an exchange about prayer at one of the meetings that became widely controversial.

According to the ACLU, that issue has caused a number of complaints over Christian-themed prayer to start council meetings.ACLU attorneys said if the City Council does not stop the practice in the next 30 days, it will file a lawsuit.

“The practice that the city is doing right now basically says Christianity is the faith that people in Jacksonville should be practicing,” said Benetta Standly, of the ACLU. “We want the city to really respect the diversity of all the people in the city.”

“We’ve got a 19-member body, all of whom are Christians,” Clark said in a phone interview. “I think a prayer is very appropriate, and I plan on continuing that practice. My hope is that (Councilman) Jack Webb in the next council year as president continues to practice. I think it’s certainly something we should do to ask to have a higher power look out after us a little more as we make these decisions for the city.”

Clark said the council is not forcing a Christian prayer on anyone, adding that just happens to be the makeup of the council. He said prayers would also be accepted, for instance, from a Jewish Rabbi or a Muslim.

The ACLU said it would be accepting if the council decided to have a rotating prayer schedule at each meeting, such as having a Muslim prayer one week, a Buddhist prayer the next week and a Christian prayer the week after that, for instance.

So the ex-CAIR flack is teaming with his pals at the ACLU (which seemingly has a division dedicated to CAIR lawsuits) to force Islamic prayers in an all-Christian body or no prayers at all. Jacksonville dhimmis haven’t seen anything yet but are probably starting to regret allowing the “Master of Deception” into their ranks.

  1. It may be hard, is it impossible? All right-thinking Christians of the state of Florida and U.S.A. as a country should begin working for an amendment of the Constitution recognizing

  2. WTF?????

    The fucking muslims have taken over the Capital on Fridays for their prayers, and are getting time set aside for prayers in our school systems, and now they are trying to ban Christian prayers.



    • USA Jim,

      I don’t have a problem with the government getting rid of officially endorsed sectarian prayers in their council buildings, however, I do have a problem with Muslims getting special treatment. I’m I supporter of the separation of church and state, and While I don’t agree with Americans United For The Separation of Church And State’s official opposition to Oklahoma’s amendment banning our courts from using Sharia, state endorsement of any religion does violate the establishment clause, and they would be right to oppose the government officially endorsing prayer of any kind. However, someone should ask Dr. Parvez Ahmed what he thinks about Muslims using capital hill as a Mosque, just to back him into a corner, and reveal how disingenuous he really is.

  3. Sharia should be ILLEGAL. Sharia is a LAW. The Muslims make no distinction between LAW and RELIGION. If the Muslims start to pray in public, then it’s also like saying the pledge of allegiance in Saudi Arabia and a Christian prayer back to back. I wonder how that would go over. As a matter of fact, it wouldn’t.
    Muslim prayer is an assault to Americans, because it’s a call to war (jihad). Muslims don’t respect other religions. Their religion, since it incorporates a military call to arms should be illegal. Jews don’t go around saying that one must convert or that person will die. Hindu’s don’t go around saying that they will not rest until all are HINDU. Those are words of violence. Those words are OFFENSIVE to people of other faiths.

  4. If only the Moslens would follow the Christian example of dealing with those of other religions over the last 2000 years.

  5. If only Tom Baxter had a functioning brain. The Moslens [sic] have quite a bloody history, but unlike the Christians they also have a bloody present, you idiot. And in their country, I’d like to see you insist on Christian prayer anywhere, Tom. Knock yourself out. Go get ya some diversity, genius.

  6. No matter what your theology has you believing, G-d did not forget to tell us about islam.. start with Psalms 83 ALL tribes mentioned are islamic today, ‘they have joined with the children of Lot ‘ (all the godless pagans of today are descendents)
    question..do we not see this today ?

    please consider reading ‘islam in the end times’ by Ellis Skolfield here: http://fishhouseministries.com/ FREE download.


  8. You have all forgotten your history and are giving up your country. You better re-educate yourselves & read up on the religion of Islam.

    An Act for Freedom of Conscience 1682
    December 7, 1682

    William Penn was deeply committed to religious freedom, but his commitment was not absolute. Although anyone who professed a belief in God could live undisturbed, one had to believe in Jesus Christ in order to vote and hold office (see the Pennsylvania Frame of Government [59], Articles xxxiv and xxxv of the Laws Agreed Upon in England). Coupled with a belief in toleration was the belief that true liberty, political virtue, and civil justice rested on Christian principles. The following ordinance is an attempt to further explicate freedom of religion and its limits.

    Wheras the glory of almighty God and the good of mankind is the reason and end of government and, therefore, government in itself is a venerable ordinance of God. And forasmuch as it is principally desired and intended by the Proprietary and Governor and the freemen of the province of Pennsylvania and territories thereunto belonging to make and establish such laws as shall best preserve true christian and civil liberty in opposition to all unchristian, licentious, and unjust practices, whereby God may have his due, Caesar his due, and the people their due, from tyranny and oppression on the one side and insolence and licentiousness on the other, so that the best and firmest foundation may be laid for the present and future happiness of both the Governor and people of the province and territories aforesaid and their posterity.

    Be it, therefore, enacted by William Penn, Proprietary and Governor, by and with the advice and consent of the deputies of the freemen of this province and counties aforesaid in assembly met and by the authority of the same, that these following chapters and paragraphs shall be the laws of Pennsylvania and the territories thereof.

    Chap. i. Almighty God, being only Lord of conscience, father of lights and spirits, and the author as well as object of all divine knowledge, faith, and worship, who can only enlighten the mind and persuade and convince the understandings of people. In due reverence to his sovereignty over the souls of mankind;

    Be it enacted, by the authority aforesaid, that no person now or at any time hereafter living in this province, who shall confess and acknowledge one almighty God to be the creator, upholder, and ruler of the world, and who professes him or herself obliged in conscience to live peaceably and quietly under the civil government, shall in any case be molested or prejudiced for his or her conscientious persuasion or practice. Nor shall he or she at any time be compelled to frequent or maintain any religious worship, place, or ministry whatever contrary to his or her mind, but shall freely and fully enjoy his, or her, christian liberty in that respect, without any interruption or reflection. And if any person shall abuse or deride any other for his or her different persuasion and practice in matters of religion, such person shall be looked upon as a disturber of the peace and be punished accordingly.

    But to the end that looseness, irreligion, and atheism may not creep in under pretense of conscience in this province, be it further enacted, by the authority aforesaid, that, according to the example of the primitive Christians and for the ease of the creation, every first day of the week, called the Lord’s day, people shall abstain from their usual and common toil and labor that, whether masters, parents, children, or servants, they may the better dispose themselves to read the scriptures of truth at home or frequent such meetings of religious worship abroad as may best suit their respective persuasions.

    Chap. ii. And be it further enacted by, etc., that all officers and persons commissioned and employed in the service of the government in this province and all members and deputies elected to serve in the Assembly thereof and all that have a right to elect such deputies shall be such as profess and declare they believe in Jesus Christ to be the son of God, the savior of the world, and that are not convicted of ill-fame or unsober and dishonest conversation and that are of twenty-one years of age at least.

    Chap. iii. And be it further enacted, etc., that whosoever shall swear in their common conversation by the name of God or Christ or Jesus, being legally convicted thereof, shall pay, for every such offense, five shillings or suffer five days imprisonment in the house of correction at hard labor to the behoof of the public and be fed with bread and water only during that time.

    Chap. v. And be it further enacted, etc., for the better prevention of corrupt communication, that whosoever shall speak loosely and profanely of almighty God, Christ Jesus, the Holy Spirit, or the scriptures of truth, and is legally convicted thereof, shall pay, for every such offense, five shillings or suffer five days imprisonment in the house of correction at hard labor to the behoof of the public and be fed with bread and water only during that time,

    Chap. vi. And be it further enacted, etc., that whosoever shall, in their conversation, at any time curse himself or any other and is legally convicted thereof shall pay for every such offense five shillings or suffer five days imprisonment as aforesaid.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
