‘Fox And Friends’ Infuriated Over President Obama’s Proclamation Honoring Ramadan

President Obama’s proclamation honoring the Muslim holy month of Ramadan has some pundits up in arms.

The statement, a simple sentence reading “Times like this remind us of the lesson of all great faiths, including Islam – that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us,” caused an uproar in the “Fox and Friends” newsroom.

The show’s hosts claimed it was a double standard – since President Obama hadn’t issued a proclamation for Easter this year, another issue the conservative-leaning show had taken up in April.

At the time, White House spokesman Jay Carney brushed off a Fox reporter’s question about issuing a statement with a slight laugh and pointed out that Obama went to church.

    Yeah because it’s not like we don’t mention Christianity year in and year out or anything?! We are bombarded with christianity, give one moment to mention an Islamic holiday and it’s a CONSPIRACY! XD Just another perfect example of the far right wanting to eliminate all other religions but their own.
