The California State Assembly passed a resolution Monday declaring August 2016 as Muslim Appreciation and Awareness Month.
The resolution — officially called HR 59 — marks the first time any state has set aside a month in recognition of the Islamic faith. The bill, which was introduced by state Assemblymember Bill Quirk, D–Hayward, and which was passed unanimously, applies only to this August, but Quirk’s Chief of Staff Tomasa Dueñas said the assembly member hopes that the body renews the resolution in the future.

GOPUSA Editor’s Note: What is going on in California? A month after the San Bernardino terrorist attack, a poll was released that showed 71 percent of California voters believe another attack is likely. And now the state wants to show their appreciation? For what???
