Last week, the Seattle Police Department rescinded an invitation to officers to attend a thank you dinner hosted by Christian evangelist Franklin Graham. Councilwoman Lorena Gonzalez pressured SPD to withdraw the invitation because she said she was afraid the LGBTQ community would be offended by a Christian event.

On Thursday, the Seattle Police Facebook page posted this: “SPD sends warm wishes for joyous Eid al- Fitr to our Community. Eid Mubarak!”

Do they have any idea what the Muslim religion’s stance is on homosexuality? The Dori Monson Show requested a comment from Seattle police and were told they decided “not to engage in this conversation.”

Listen to the Dori Monson Show weekday afternoons from noon – 3 p.m. on KIRO Radio, 97.3 FM. Subscribe to the podcast here.
