Catholic University investigated for not providing Muslims a ‘Christian-free’ room in which to pray


Welcome to multiculturalism:

Fox News Radio – The Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights confirmed that it is investigating allegations that Catholic University violated 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.

The investigation alleges that 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.”

A spokesperson for the Office of Human Rights told Fox News they had received a 60-page complaint against the private university. The investigation, they said, could take as long a six months. …

[John Banzhaf, an attorney and professor at George Washington University Law School] said some Muslim students were particularly offended because they had to meditate in the school’s chapels “and at the cathedral that looms over the entire campus – the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.”

This is so stupid that the commentary is obvious. If you are a fervent Muslim who is dedicated to praying 5 times a day and you choose to attend a very religious Catholic university that is based in Christianity, don’t complain when there are crosses everywhere! If you find Christianity so offensive that you can’t pray in a room with crosses, then either don’t pray or find a new university.



But the bigger element of this is that the government Office of Human Rights is investigating Catholic University for human right’s violations. This is eye-bleed material here. There is no one being oppressed, being told they can’t practice their religion. This is all about a room being devoid of Christian symbols at a Catholic university. And the government is stepping in to investigate this?

2012 can’t get here fast enough.
