DNC Provides ‘Interfaith’ Prayer Space at Convention… Islam Only Religion Present

Having a space for people to pray during a political convention is a good idea and the Democratic National Convention has done just that. But there was something strange about their “interfaith” prayer rooms: the only faith represented seems to be Islam.

From BizPac Review:

The Democratic National Convention has curtained off several “interfaith” spaces for prayer, but the only sign of religion in any of the spaces is Islam.

Convention goers looking to get in touch with the god of their choice can visit the “Interfaith Prayer Room” on the first floor of the Wells Fargo Center, which consists of a series of spaces sectioned off by curtains. A sign hangs over the first space, which is simply an empty room.

The second area has a few chairs and some prayer mats. A third large space is set up to accommodate Muslims, with a mat set up on the floor presumably facing Mecca and a sanitizing station so Muslims can wash before they pray.

A fourth space is another large empty room. Aside from Islam, no sign of any other religion was present.

Kind of surprising for a so-called interfaith prayer area. If they can set up a huge hand sanitizing station and figure out which way is Mecca, seems like grabbing a copy of a bible or a crucifix wouldn’t be a huge deal. Or a drum for the new age types. Or even some incense to help out Hindu believers. How about a pen and paper for believers who prefer to journal their prayers? Or a Jewish prayer book?

It seems strange that they would go to all of that trouble to make the Muslim prayer room perfect, but leave the other spaces completely empty. Are they intentionally trying to pander to Muslims, or are they just stupid and tone-deaf?
