    HONOLULU -- Hawaii's state Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill Wednesday to celebrate "Islam Day" -- over the objections of a few lawmakers who said they didn't want to honor a religion connected to Sept. 11, 2001.

    The Senate's two Republicans argued that a minority of Islamic extremists have killed many innocents in terrorist attacks.

    "I recall radical Islamists around the world cheering the horrors of 9/11. That is the day all civilized people of all religions should remember," said Republican Sen. Fred Hemmings to the applause of more than 100 people gathered in the Senate to oppose a separate issue -- same-sex civil unions.

    The resolution to proclaim Sept. 24, 2009, as Islam Day passed the Senate on a 22-3 vote. It had previously passed the House and now goes to Republican Gov. Linda Lingle.

    THAT is all you have to say? What happened to all the spittle and screams from the left over a moment of silence and that vaunted Separation of Church and State? As Usual the only religion that bothers you turds is the Christian religion.
