Muslims Want Catholic School to Provide Room Without Crosses
Fox News ^ | Oct 26, 2011 | Staff

Catholic University has been accused of violating the human rights of Muslim students by not allowing them to form a Muslim student group and by not providing them rooms without Christian symbols for their daily prayers, according to a complaint filed with the Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights.

The 60-page complaint said Muslim students “must perform their prayers surrounded by symbols of Catholicism – e.g., a wooden crucifix, paintings of Jesus, pictures of priests and theologians which many Muslim students find inappropriate.”

SNIP

Patrick Reilly, the president of the Cardinal Newman Society, an organization that promotes Catholic identity among Catholic schools, seemed stunned by the complaint.

“I don’t know what the attorney wants them to do – if he wants them to actually move the Basilica or if the Muslim students can find someplace where they don’t have to look at it,” he told Fox News. Catholic University, he said, is a Catholic institution.

What would they expect to find in a catholic school?
Am I to understand they had NO CLUE these items would be present?
I smell a setup.

Uh...it’s called Catholic University. I would assume they kind of stress being Catholic. If you have a problem with that, I think you’re at the wrong university.

As long as they sense weakness, they’ll keep pushing the envelope.

Well, the Muslims don't have to go to the Catholic colleges. They chose to go to these colleges. There are other options.

Knowing the Catholic mindset, they'll accommodate the Muslim students. The Catholic Church is afraid of our government and will do almost anything to keep the status quo.

It's too bad they don't investigate Glenn Beck's appeal to Christian churches to call the government's bluff.

I can see this will be a no win. The official religion and official language of America is “NONE”. Thus a religion/belief may be different, but their right to worship will not be denied. A Plain Chapel can be used by many religions, bring your own icons for the service. The house of God is everyone’s house. I knew of a GI who prayed in a Shinto Temple during post WW II, and treated it like it was his hometown church.

Exactly - they knew full well what they were doing.

Can’t they pray on a sidewalk? That is what happens when a mosque overflows.

Can they pray in yard there?

I agree, they will keep pushing the envelope.

WTF!! If they don't like it, don't go there. What's so hard about that.

They want to go there because it's safe. Period. How long will it take after more and more of them come will it no longer be safe. They always want to visit the peaceful places or neighborhoods until their ilk move there. Then it is no longer crime free. The cycle has to stop.
