Dems tell Christians to keep their stinkin’ cookies …

… while the media ignores their prayers.

In September 2012, 9,000 members of 56 Christian churches in Charlotte, NC, got together to pray for the success of the Democratic National Convention. The gathering was largely ignored by the media.

A similar, but much smaller gathering of some 200 Muslims praying for the convention in Charlotte was given extensive national coverage.

The Christian coalition also planned to create “Welcome to Charlotte” gift baskets to distribute to the delegates. The baskets were to include a traditional local treat — pecan cookies known as Carolina Pralines — plus a letter welcoming the delegates to the city and offering assistance with transportation, childcare or spiritual matters.

Nevertheless, both the convention organizers AND the mayor’s office told the group they were not welcome to send welcome baskets to the delegates, because the churches are all pro-life.

The organizers made it clear the baskets did NOT include a single political or pro-life message of any kind. Didn’t matter.

So the group asked if, instead of gift baskets, they could just send simple letters of welcome. The DNC said no. Same reason. The churches views were “contrary to the Democratic party platform.”

One of the organizers said, “We were just trying to display Southern hospitality. We wanted them to know we were happy to serve them.”

Muslims are also opposed to abortion.

    I think there was an ulterior motive here, by the Christians. I have a southern friend who taught me how to make pecan pralines. They are a bit tricky to make, but they are soooo good. But we really should not eat all that sugar. These things could kill you!

  4. KD provided links to some of the Craigslist-type ads being placed prior to the Dem convention. 😯 The “Southern hospitality” these guys had in mind was most DEFINITELY not what the churches were offering!!
