Just days after the horrific Islamic terrorist attacks in London, Democrats in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina have declared the month of June as “The Month of Ramadan,” to honor the Islamic holiday that runs from May 26 to June 24.

The proposal passed 6-3 on June 6, with all Democrats voting “yes” and all Republicans voting “no.”

Conservative Republican and 11-term county commissioner Bill James, who opposed the proposal, tweeted that “Democrats will come to regret the opening of this spigot that blurs the lines of church and state.”

Included in the official government proclamation is language stating that the holiday will help Muslims “become closer to God” and that “each day of fasting teaches the soul to struggle with the self.”

Republican Mecklenburg Commissioner Jim Puckett said the resolution “seems a bit close to government endorsing a religion.”

“To the best of my knowledge we have never (and I don’t think it would be proper) adopted a Resolution in support of Lent (the Judean/Christian Ramadan) Easter, Christmas, Hanukkah, Passover, Yom Kippur, Pioneer Day for Mormons, or Diwali,” Puckett said in an email to colleagues Tuesday afternoon, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Meanwhile, ISIS has taken responsibility for the terrorist attack in London, urging jihadists to kill people using any means possible during the Muslim holiday of Ramadan.
