Tony Perkins Slams NYC Mayor De Blasio Over Muslim Holidays For Public Schools

“In New York City schools, kids are learning Rs: reading, writing, and Ramadan. Thanks to the far-Left priorities of Mayor Bill de Blasio (D), city schools have added two Muslim holidays to the school calendar — a concession that took even Big Apple parents by surprise. While the largest religion in the country fights to even be recognized, ‘NYC schools will now close for Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha — making (it) the largest school district in the nation to recognize the two holidays on the official school calendar.’ Although families already had the option of taking excused absences for these days, Mayor de Blasio took it upon himself to close school for 1.1 million students in the single largest display of political correctness the district has ever seen. The reality is, America wasn’t founded on Muslim principles — but Christian ones. That doesn’t mean ignoring other religions — but it also doesn’t mean surrendering our identity to a small minority either.” – Hate group leader Tony Perkins, via email.
