Legislators in Illinois have proposed a “Muslim Advisory Council” to advise the governor on issues related to Islam. It would be the first of its kind in America.

Illinois Seeks Nation’s First Muslim Advisory Council
Legislation currently pending in the state of Illinois would authorize a special Muslim-only advisory council if signed by Gov. Bruce Rauner.
It would be a permanent 21-member council made up of volunteer members appointed by the governor and House and Senate members to advise the governor and the General Assembly on issues that would impact Muslim-Americans and immigrants. Meetings would be held monthly with two public hearings each year. Members would serve two-year terms and are required to have expertise in business, law, or health care.
The timing of this legislation is a bit curious, as Bruce Cornibe notes at Counter Jihad:
At the end of an especially bloody month of Ramadan, which included the worst terror attack in America since 9/11, some politicians and lawmakers feel the solution is to give Muslim community more of a voice in government.
Not to mention the mixing of religion with official state business.
“This special status for a religious group is surprising in a country that bars an official state religion,” Cornibe states. “Why wouldn’t Illinois require a Christian council? Or how about a Jewish council?”
It all makes perfect sense if you understand progressives.
In their world, Christianity is hate but Islam counts as diversity.
Is it any wonder Illinois is going broke?
