    This is actually false. The Gregorian and Julian calendars have only been 13 days apart since 1900 AD. The difference between the two increases by one day every 400 years. Because the events in question occurred in the seventh century, the difference between the Julian and Gregorian dates of those events would be less than thirteen days.

    In addition to the source, there are two problems with this article. The first I've already explained. The second is that it claimed this was planned by "Muslims" who "tricked" the legislature into creating this holiday. That's retarded. Beside the fact that there are almost no Muslims in Hawaii, I highly doubt that any of the Muslims who do live there invented some ingenious ploy to trick all of Hawaii's representatives into creating this holiday, which they supposedly believed would fall on September 11th.

    WOW. This is seriously... Wow. This is the dirt BELOW the bottom of the barrel we've started to scrape. There is no hope.

    Personally, I see no reason for the holiday and would have probably voted against it. I was merely pointing out that it wouldn't fall on Sept. 11th, nor was it likely to have been passed due to the efforts of Muslims.

    If this is true then why pass an 'Islam Day' in Hawaii?

    Thank you for that info.

    I wouldn't be fine with a day like this for any faith group. It's shows favoritism of one over another. If we tried to give each religion a day we'd run out of days of the year if we tried to please each group.

    Doesn't National Pray Day cover all religions? Isn't that what it's for? Oh yeah, Obama gave that a pass this year.
