Obama and Ramadan

Yes, there is a Christmas Tree at the white House for Christmas and a Santa Claus party.  Is that Christian?

I do not know if there is a Yom Kippur Observance?

I also do not know if there is a special day set aside for Buddhists, or Hindus?

It seems like there is selective approval here.  Yes, for a secular Christmas, Yes,  for a religious Ramadan.  No for the Jews, Buddhists and Hindus.

Now maybe the Pres. should do nothing.  Just be secular toward all religion from the White House?  Maybe we the citizens shouldn’t care because it is the expression of his personal faith? (I know he says he is a Christian!) Well, what about you?  What do you think?  We would sure like to know.
