During Ally Week the President Makes a Poor Decision About Supporting Religious Diversity

A somewhat stunning article in the New York Times articulates why President Obama will not visit the Golden Temple, the spiritual center of Sikhism in India. As schools around the nation celebrate Ally Week to show solidarity with the LGBT community it is sad to see the White House catering to American ignorance on religion, afraid to put the President in a situation where people might mistake him for being a Muslim by visiting a Sikh temple. It would be laughable if it weren't so sad.
