Texas House declares “Muslim Day” but no signatures required on resolution

Why not? Why wouldn’t politicians in Texas follow the normal procedures and sign this important resolution declaring it Muslim Day across Texas? Why wouldn’t these politicians want their constituents to know they supported a day for Muslims – a day to advocate for sharia law in Texas? via The Dallas Morning News.
Muslim Day resolution procedure is altered
House members deviated from their usual practice Thursday for a resolution declaring it Muslim Day at the Capitol.
The sponsor of the legislation routinely asks that all names of House members be added to resolutions.
But Rep. Lon Burnam, D-Fort Worth, said that as a courtesy to some members, he would not ask for the names to be added.

Instead, he asked those who wished to honor Texas Muslims to sign the resolution in the House clerk’s office.
Islamic organizations and mosques from across the state came to Austin to meet with elected officials and advocate civic participation by Muslims and interfaith partners.
The Texas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said that the event prompted threats online, forcing an increased police presence.
 The day was the creation of terror-linked, FBI-banned CAIR and its many like-minded sharia-promoting Muslims and others.
