The Obama administration which is forcing the Little Sisters of the Poor to provide abortifacient coverage has now banned all pork from the menus of federal prisons, a move which Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is cheering, according to CNS News.
Now, to be clear, the administration is reportedly claiming this isn't kowtowing to pressure because Muslims don't eat pork. They're saying inmates just don't like pork. Yeah, because you know you how men hate bacon.
“In general we welcome the change because it’s facilitating the accommodation of Muslim inmates," Ibrahim Hooper, a CAIR spokesman told the Washington Post.
How ironic is this that the president who attacks the religious freedom of Christians at every turn is getting adulation from CAIR for accommodating their religion? So freedom of religion isn't an important enough principle to allow Christians not be forced to participate in same sex marriages. And freedom of religion isn't important enough to allow nuns not to be forced to provide abortifacient coverage. But pork is banned from prisons.
The twisted priorities of this administration continue to stun.
