|The sign of the "true" Democrat religion|
Because Dems are really the only people who understand other cultures.
From The Washington Free Beacon:
The Obama administration was grilled on Monday for inviting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to a state dinner while he is fasting as part of a Hindu religious observance, a move that has been criticized by some as insensitive.
Obama will host Modi Monday evening at the White House “for a private dinner” that will also be attended by Vice President Joe Biden, the White House announced Monday morning. The event is closed to the press.
However, the administration appears to have forgotten that Modi is in the middle of carrying out a religious fast in observance of the Hindu navratri, in which the faithful abstain from food, according to reports.
The administration’s seeming insensitivity to Modi’s religious observance caused a tense back-and-forth during the State Department’s daily briefing with reporters.
State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki was forced to defend the decision to hold the dinner on the holy day.
Yeah, just eat in front of the guy. Give him a big red "overcharge" button while you're at it.
I have found many people on the Left have very little care about religion beyond getting upset about it. Upset at Americans who don't care for Islam, for instance, or upset at American who cling to their religion (and guns) in the face of Marx-inspired progress. As for the religion itself, the Left holds a pretty open disdain-- in this case enough not to even bother to look over a religious calendar for a visiting dignitary.
