Skip to comments.Muslims Want Catholic School to Provide Room Without Crosses
Posted on 10/26/2011 7:37:22 PM PDT by bkopto
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.
Patrick Reilly, the president of the Cardinal Newman Society, an organization that promotes Catholic identity among Catholic schools, seemed stunned by the complaint.
I dont 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 dont have to look at it, he told Fox News. Catholic University, he said, is a Catholic institution.

Words fail me.
People in Hell want Sparkletts.
OK ... there are no Crosses in the Latrines or the Broom Closets.
Why in hell would muzloid students attend a CATHOLIC university if not to just cause trouble?
I say SCREW ‘EM!
Muslims, may pigs be upon them.
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.
TOO STUNNED TO SPEAK.
As long as they sense weakness, they’ll keep pushing the envelope.
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.
AMERICANS FOR A MUSLIM FREE AMERICA.
WE LEARNED ALL WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ISLAM ON 9/11
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.
One of these days we’re just gonna have to push BACK!
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.
The Islamobastards just keep pushing.
I say it is way past time for us to start pushing back.
the world is insane
Bingo! You hit it. The radical Muslims respond only to strength and force. They will not back off. They will not be reasonable, only drive for more. This is not shocking in light of the Ground Zero mosque, the push for recognition of Sharia law in our courts, push from the Left to stop recognizing traditional American holidays. The only chance in the long term is to force them back. As Europe is understanding too late, the cultures don’t mix.
In other words, start making demands of them. And mean it.
Aren’t there Muslim universities they can go to?
Private property is not everyone’s house
Muslims are always pushing the boundaries. When will we as a country start pushing back instead of bending over?
Yep. I’m sure our “government” would back up those Christian traditions, too. /sarc
In November 2012!!
Exactly who placed a gun to the heads of these Mooselimbs miscreants and forced them to enroll at a Catholic University?
Do religious Muslims actually believe in the existence of such a thing as “human rights”? Or is it merely a convenient weapon to wield against infidels?
What evidence could possibly exist to support such a proposition?
Breed them out of existence?
I'll bet they aren't ~ although a couple of them dealing with the DC government may have visas ~ possibly stolen from someone else.
And I want Catholic Schools without moslems!
What ever happened to the huge RAT tenet of "seperation of church and state"?
If the government orders a catholic church school to do away with their crosses, how long before they’re ordered to do away with their bibles. This is exactly what separation of church and state means.
It’s not the Catholic response, I know - but I would tell them to stick their 60-page report where the sun doesn’t shine, and then ignore them afterwards.
No, it’s what they THINK it means.
This might be the beginning of yet another Christian persecution era. We have survived many so far....we’ll see
how strong we are this round.
Modern Muslims seem to be a bit weak on higher education. It requires thinking.
It is a Catholic school if you want that find a muslin school to send them to.
And Jews want Kosher bacon.
Response: GO BACK TO MECCA
Christians beware! Satan comes in many forms~beware the anti-Christ.
A time to fight back is here!
Not until there is a Catholic church in IRAN.
Tolerance is a one way street.
Catholic University, thus far, has done well sticking to its proverbial guns. They are a PRIVATE institution. If they fight this, they will win. The successfully fought the NAACP as well as others and they have not backed down ever. If they back down this time, it is their CHOICE. I hope they don’t.
Looks like the slippery slope just went vertical.
Meanwhile, I was listening to news today that Coptic Christians in Egypt are being killed, raped and tortured. What the hell???? The illegitimate idiot POTUS praised the “Arab Spring”... where is his condemnation of this persecution of Christians? More likely he is celebrating with his “crew” in West Hollywood noshing on Roscoe’s chicken and waffles... despicable and damn him to hell.
Headlines ought read America wants States without Muslims.
Or Catholic Schools ought be allowed to be Catholic—not subject to Islamic Law. Stealth Jihad folks —first the bloody buggers use our laws to get the camels nose under the tent —then they want to destroy the tent from the inside. I recall a Muslim folk notion Trust Allah -but tie up your camel. or something like that. Time we tied some camels eh?Let the Catholics be Catholic-and let the Muslims go back to whatever dismal State they came from.
What you “smell” is typical Muslim supremacist behavior.
It’s not really that they are “offended” by the crosses, or that they even bother them.
What they really want is to exercise their supremacy over the existing order and force their culture on it.
