Calling Democrats “people of faith,” the Democratic National Committee today announced a huge interfaith gathering to kick off the convention in Denver on August 24.
Its the first time the Democrats have brought together so many people of different faiths at one of their national conventions — and heralded musicians will share in the gala, officials said.
The gathering will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, August 24, at the Wells Fargo Theater, inside the Colorado Convention Center.
Sharing the dais will be an evangelical bishop; a leader of an Islamic society, a Catholic nun and a Jewish rabbi.
Well, it’s really the Abrahamic traditions, but it is something of a start. . .
