Why is the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional, yet White House Ramadan dinners are not?

It only ever seems to be unconstitutional if it's a Christian themed day.

    Why must a National Day of Prayer to be Christian-themed? Many other religions pray.

    Did you forget they celebrate Christmas in the White House? You also seemed to have missed the fact that Obama will still hold an interfaith national day of prayer, regardless of any rulings. You also seem to have missed the fact that Bush did the same thing. You can complain all you want about your poor unrepresentative Christians, but nobody at the White House has failed any Christians.

    The White House is a personal residence. That's why there can also be a National Christmas Tree there.

    Oh, if you fell asleep in church, Christmas is a Christian-themed day. Also, National Day of Prayer isn't Christian-specific.

    It's unconstitutional because having a day when everybody prays is joining church and state. A Ramadan dinner is him trying to suck up to foreign leaders. If you were trying to get someone to like you then you'd try to show that you appreciate their culture.

    Is it a white house Ramadan dinner or National Ramadan Dinner day?

    There's a difference, a pretty big one too.

    For the same reason Christians are not permitted to burn Korans, yet liberals CAN burn bibles and smear feces and urine on Christian symbols.

    Liberals hate Christians

    Liberals love Muslims

    Wow, you just don't get it, you really don't. The answer you want is, yes, you are sooooo right, Obama is just awful, he is going to destroy this country, the nasty Muslim, socialist that he is.... Feel better?

    Here we go again, the Republicans are playing the victim card yet again. Spare me.

    Oh, wait. They did. Never mind.
