At first I read that Obama denied a a Catholic cardinal’s request to say a prayer at the same event. The cardinals name is Timothy Dolan is considered the top Catholic official in the nation I guess.
I'm not religious,,,, I read one of the reasons Obama and the DNC rejected this Cardinal was because he was to speak at the RNC also.
But, come -on,,,, Do you here at ATS think having Islamic Prayers held to open the DNC Convention is a good idea or it just doesn't matter.
I continued to look around and I found where this Cardinal will hold the closing prayer.
The Democratic National Committee is choosing to proceed with hosting Islamic “Jumah” prayers for two hours on the Friday of its convention. President Obama initially declined the opportunity for Timothy Cardinal Dolan to deliver a prayer at the Democratic National Convention. However Dolan has accepted an invitation and is slated to deliver the closing prayer.
