    Just what the kids at failing schools need, more days off for religious holidays:

    De Blasio Announces Addition Of Muslim Holidays To NYC Public Schools Calendar
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York City public schools have added two Muslim holidays to the school calendar, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina announced Wednesday.

    Schools will now close for Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, making New York City the largest school district in the nation to recognize the two holidays on the official school calendar.

    “We are committed to having a school calendar that reflects and honors the extraordinary diversity of our students,” said Farina.

    De Blasio said the change means that Muslim families won’t be forced to choose between observing the holidays and sending their kids to school.

    “They want to celebrate their holiday but they also want to go to school, they love school. So now they don’t have to make that choice and this is why this is so amazing,” mother of three Linda Sarsour told WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell.

    I thought they weren't supposed to have religious holidays anymore.

    I wonder how many Christian or Jewish Holiday's are observed in Muslim countries? I'm guessing 0.0

    Didn't someone start this thread yesterday?
    But yeah...its freaking ridiculous.
    What great thing have Muslims ever brought to America? I'm being serious.
    I'm all for freedom of religion. I truly am. You should be able to believe whatever fairytale you like.
    But why all the pandering?? I just don't get it. :facepalm:
    If you need a day off to celebrate, TAKE IT. But the whole school shouldn't be off for your bullshit

    it used to be the country celebrated you if you did good things for the country. so far the only thing Islam has done for the US is fail to blow up more buildings.

    "De Blasio said the change means that Muslim families won’t be forced to choose between observing the holidays and sending their kids to school."

    What about all the other families will be forced to keep their children home ? Why not bow down to every other religion and close the schools for all religious holidays ? The school year would amount to 6 months a year. How did this jerk off ever get elected ????

    That only applies to the Christian sects. :secret:






    This isn't about religion. It's about diversity.

    You know he has been planning this for weeks. The problem is ISIS keeps cutting the heads off of Non-Muslims.

    I'm sure the other day Bill called his head of PR. It probably went something like this.

    "Did ISIS cut off any heads today? What about yesterday? What time is it in the Middle East right now? 3:00am? Perfect! Let's roll out that Muslim Holiday press conference to show I am the most Liberal mayor every before ISIS wakes up."

    In spite of the best efforts of atheists and progressives, religion isn't going away. True, Christianity is on the ropes and nearly extinct in Europe but Islam will be the dominant religion some day. They will make every demand the traditional western religions once made and they will GET it.

    And when the last church has been converted into a microbrewery or club the Muzzies will start a holy war to shut them down.

    I wonder what his carpet munching wife thinks of the Muslim teachings regarding women and homosexuals, although if there ever was a face that could be improved with one of those rags.......

    He got elected for two reasons...

    1) He married a BLAECK woman and he put his biracial son with the HUGE afro in his campaign ads.

    2) No one in NYC cared about the mayoral election that year because there was nothing but a bunch of other jerk off candidates to chose from. I think people will turn out in droves next time to send this shit head packing!

    Not everyone has that choice, my life would be a lot easier if I didn't have the private school tuition to pay, but others simply don't have the resources to pay it.
