https://www.foxnews.com/politics/te...ngly-reject-removal-of-muslim-county-official Texas Republicans voted to keep a GOP county official in his position after a small group raised a ruckus over his Muslim religious beliefs. The Tarrant County Republican Party overwhelming voted to keep Dr. Shahid Shafi as the party’s vice chair Thursday. Shafi, a trauma surgeon and Southlake city councilman, was targeted by a small group of Republicans – led by precinct chairman Dorrie O’Brien – who contended his religious beliefs are not in line with those he represents in the county. But the party rejected calls to oust him from the position Thursday in a 139-49 vote. Tarrant County Republican Party Chair Darl Easton said the vote “demonstrates we are a party that respects the right of those who disagree on an issue to have a seat at the table and their voices heard.” “Religious liberty won tonight and while that makes a great day for the Republican Party of Tarrant County, that victory also serves notice that we have much work to do unifying our party,” he said in a statement. ___________________________________________________ Now, contrast that with Democratic Sens. Kamala D. Harris and Mazie Hirono who think membership in Knights of Columbus is a deal breaker because it's a men's Catholic institution. So much for religious tolerance on the left, huh.
