In Texas today, it’s Muslim Capitol Day, an-every-other-year event whose sponsors call it “an opportunity for community members to learn about the democratic political process and how to be an advocate for important issues.”
They needn’t call on Rep. Molly White.
The Dallas Morning News reports the 200 Muslim and non-Muslim attendees were met by “Christian protesters.”
