Democrats Support Ramadan But Not Christmas

Amanda Carpenter reports that,

Democrats who supported a House resolution to honor Ramadan voted against a similar resolution to honor Christmas and Christianity last night.

18 Democrat voted “nay” or “present” on a resolution to “recognize the importance of Christmas and the Christian faith.” An eagle-eyed Republican House staffer points out that those same members, with one exception, voted to “recognize the commencement of Ramadan,” a Muslim religious observance in October.

According to the Pew Report on Muslims in America, “A sizable majority of Muslim Americans (63%) identify with or lean to the Democratic Party. This compares with 51% of the general public who are Democratic or Democratic-leaning."

Are these Democrats pandering to the minority Muslim population for political purposes, or are they simply showing their hatred for Christianity?
