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.

  1. Don’t move a centimeter for these Muslims. It well past time to push back on these guys. Show them where the freaking door is.

  2. Why do we not wake up and smell the coffee. It may be our grandchildren, but some day we will be fighting these people in the streets of our country. They will out breed us and when there is enough of them they will vote Sharia Law in and put a bounty on the head of every Christian still brave enough to stand up for their religion.

    1. Sadly, I don’t think we’ll have to wait for our grandchildren to see fighting in our streets. Love it or hate it, the foreign front strategy in the war against terrorists has been extremely effective. After 9/11, I don’t think there was a person in America who thought that attack was the end. Didn’t everyone expect later attacks across the country? I know I did. But, because we took the fight to the enemy, tens of thousands of would-be attackers died, untrained and anonymously, in the deserts and mountains of Asia as cannon fodder for the greatest fighting force in the history of the world.

      President Obama is intent on removing the foreign front and bringing all the troops home. As much as we all want them to be here with their loved ones, bringing them back is not going to end the war. War does not end just because one side stops fighting. It ends because one side is defeated and gives up. The war will follow our troops home and, instead of hearing of IEDs detonating along roadsides near Kandahar, we will be hearing of car bombs in St. Louis and suicide bombers at Mardi Gras. It is a terrible risk Mr. Obama is taking and he’s obviously failed to consider the possible ramifications.

    U.S. Marines: No Spitting Toward Mecca


    Mubarak teaches US Marines:

    Don’t spit toward Mecca.

    Don’t urinate toward Mecaa.

    Don’t sleep with your boots toward Mecca.

    In other words, Mubarak teaches US Marines to become intensely sensitized to the whereabouts of Mecca, and to be guided by that magnetic North for Muslims as a matter of the most personal habits and hygiene — in accordance with sharia (Islamic law). This goes well, of course, with ISAF’s guidance to all troops to revere the Koran and its teachings.


    Bat Ye’or, who has been addressing groups on American college campuses, said she was so stunned by what she’d observed at universities that she decided to alter her remarks. “We are facing today a jihad against America,” she said, because “America is a fortress of Judeo-Christian values, which Europe is no more.” The jihadis intend to Islamize the West, but they are not only doing it by violent means. She said that they are doing so by splitting America from Europe, and by using multiculturalism and Western notions of tolerance to immobilize resistance to its demands.

    In Bat Ye’or’s view, universities and naive Jewish and Christian religious leaders are carrying water for Islamists, as is the political Left (“The leftists were educated with hate of America and rejection of Judeo-Christian values,” she said, and this perversely leads them to view Islamofascism uncritically). “We have to understand the cultural war we’re in,” Bat Ye’or said. “The war is not only a terrorist war, but a cultural war on our values and on our integrity.”

    Bat Ye’or was stunned to see how far the self-dhimmitization of Americans has already progressed, at least on elite American college campuses. Speaking at Georgetown the other day, she said about three-quarters of the students who turned up to hear her speech were Muslims, and they responded abusively. All they could say was that she was defaming Islam; they couldn’t argue the facts with her. But that didn’t surprise her.

  5. If the Catholic University has to remove their cross what are the Islamic universities going to give up?

  6. Clearly this another attempt of various Muslim groups to be “shit disturbers”just to get free press and try to disgrace a Christian group.Undoubtedly there will be lawsuits to further cause trouble.If anything It will teach people that it’s time America and West woke up to agenda of Islam!!! Also to realize that the lefties are on the WRONG side and CANNOT BE TRUSTED TO DO THE RIGHT THING!!!

    1. Yeah. They could do this:

      Matthew 7:6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall freward thee openly.

  7. They,as are the illegals,taking over America without firing a shot. This is the America obbastard envisions. A sickening cesspool of factions who hate America & its culture & all Christians. The evil bastard watches in glee as this country is torn apart by the seams by these leeching pieces of shit. Soon civil war will be inevitable. Sadly, the sheepage seem to outnumber true patriots. They are in for a very rude awakening.

  8. Perfect example of how you destroy a society from within. You challenge that society to live up to its IDEALS. Unfortunately IDEALS are not necessarily achievable.

    How will a religious institution who touts “tolerance” handle his challenge? OMG- are Catholics tolerant? You know that God watches the Catholic Universities. What will God say if His university turns out to be– INTOLERANT?

    The Catholic University is being isolated, personalized and tested at its root exactly as it is described in Sol Alinsky’s, “Rules for Radicals.” It’s just a game…

    Now Catholics, you must learn that, even in free societies where tolerance is the rule, sometime you must draw the line over which none shall pass. None. You are the masters of your fate. You are the ones who must draw the line.

    So what will happen if you DO NOT give in to the Muslim demand? You will appear intolerant and you will be subject to criticism.

    Please read that again. “You will appear intolerant and you will be subject to criticism.”

    GOD will not send fire and brimstone from the skies if you tell the Muslim, “Kiss my a$$!” God will not take your name off the passenger manifest for heaven if you tell the Muslims, “Kiss my a$$!” The government will not and cannot shut you down if you tell the Muslims, “Kiss My A$$.”

    The worse that will happen to you is that “You will appear intolerant and you will be subject to criticism.”

    Muslims and the rest of the Liberals and communists continually confound the conservatives and a society by testing its ideals. So what if you don’t live up to your ideals? Try genuflecting and making the sign of the Cross with your right hand in a Mosque in Egypt if you want to know what real intolerance is.

    Stop the BS now. Just look the Muslim in the eye and say, “Kiss my a$$.” You control your borders, you set the standards you determine what will occur within your own borders, not a bunch of loud-mouthed, drooling Muslims. (Genuflecting and making the sign of the cross following your pronouncement is optional.)

    1. “Perfect example of how you destroy a society from within. You challenge that society to live up to its IDEALS. Unfortunately IDEALS are not necessarily achievable. ”

      On target. It is how the leftists attack anyone who stands for conservative, constitutional, or Christian values and principles.

      The second we concede to their premise – we lose.

    2. U might also refuse to step out of the way, as a Rajah comes your way with his bodyguards. Refuse Burnooses at any of your private meetings. They really hate me for this.

  9. What? No, wait….say it ain’t so…a Catholic University with Catholic symbols and Chrisitan stuff and Jesus and probably pope pictures and who knows, maybe some holy water…
    I’m not Catholic, and I didn’t go to a University, but even I figured this one out!
    Ha ha….the truth is they know exactly what they are doing and there’s nothing funny about that.
    I hope the ACLJ gets involved.

  10. This is another example of muslims wanting to take over- conquer for islam. This is like that situation in Texas a couple of years ago where a muslim bought land to build a mosque and learning center… only the guy who owned the land next door is a pig farmer. They muslim knew the farmer raised pigs, but bought the land anyway. Soon after, he tells the farmer he needs to get rid of the pigs. Glad the farmer decided to have pig races every friday during prayer time instead. I haven’t heard what’s happened since.
    This however shows just how America’s government has been following world opinion and law instead of the Constitution. This is so wrong, but it doesn’t surprise me.

        1. It’s their fault for doing such stupid things like buying land next to a pig farm! So, I’ve decided to laugh without the guilt! 🙂

          1. Buying land next to the pig farm was quite strategic, not stupid. Establishing legal precedence in shutting down the pig farmer is a strategic move for them, not simply building another mosque.

            This is sharia.

            1. Yep, I know. I was just fooling all the way round….these monsters aren’t stupid, just devious, evil and prey on the un-informed population, not to mention appealing to the mis-guided sense of intolerance the left has foisted on our culture.

    1. If I remember correctly, the pig farm had been in the family on that location for 4 or 5 generations, too. It wasn’t as if some corporation just dropped it there & the mosque moved in the following week. It was well known pig land. Everyone, for generations and from miles around knew it.

  11. They act surprised! They opened their arms to their own mortal enemy, whose religion demands its followers force Catholics into submission.

    Of course this is all part of the plan for islamic supremacy. It started with wearing hijabs on the job, footbaths for cabbies and the label of islamophobia.

    They have already infiltrated our federal institutions, Judicial, Cabinets, law enforcement and Intelligence.

    Now the CAIR lawyers, with unlimited petro dollars behind them, are stepping it up a notch.

    What could be a more essential, what mortal fight more crucial for the Catholic universities and the Catholic church to engage in? If they do not entrench and win this – all is lost.

  12. A: It’s a private school. They don’t even have to let Muslims attend if they don’t want to. Any action taken against the university is a violation of its First Amendment right to free exercise of religion.

    B: Why would a Muslim choose to attend a university owned and run by a religion they find inappropriate and offensive?

    The answer to the second question is obvious; the Muslim students making the complaints are political/religious activists who went there to cause problems. I’m sure there are plenty of others who share their religion who accept the fact that they are there to get a quality education and not to change the university into something it wasn’t before they chose to go there.

    I think that second

    1. A Christian attending a muslim university would be repulsed by the true reality and evil of islam.

      A muslim attending a Christian university is honoring their deepest religious duty to lie and deceive their foolish host – to plot and see to the demise of that university and its Christian foundations.

      1. Is there such a thing as a Muslim university? I mean, I’m sure there is, but all their best educated have gotten their degrees from institutions in Europe and North America – so their own universities can’t be any good. What would they teach? I think it would be mostly practical, like a trade school, with some academic classes mixed in for good measure.

        Women’s Studies 103, cross-listed as Patriarchy, female opression and rape 101.
        How to make an IED out of what you have in your pockets right now.
        How to identify kuffar who will believe anything and not have your head blown up by Slim Whitman – the lessons of Mars Attacks.
        Blending in – Yes, you can sympathize with Islamic Rage Boy without looking like him.

        I’m sure there are plenty more. Just nothing we ever hope to see in a western university.

        1. From the age of 5 to 13, every Muslim boy is forced to attend a Muslim school. After that, as a man, he can do anything he wants. Ask the Catholic church what they say, about you give me a child at 5, and he will always be a Catholic.

  13. This is Jihad. I hope the university plans to counter sue for the recovery of their legal fees. That way they can seek discovery, depose them, and find out who is funding them. Students don’t have this kind of money to do this on their own.

    This is becoming their mo. Get on airplanes, cause a ruckus, and then sue for some type of discrimination. COUNTER SUE! We need to find out who’s really behind this. And THE MUSLIM IN THE WHITE HOUSE NEEDS TO BE REMOVED.

  14. What is next. A group of Muslims going door to door to talk about Islam and they find a house of christians and they decide to sue? This is another sign that the govt is trying to seize private property. We need to fight these bastards.

  15. This is another example of the radical left trying to minimize the christian community. If you don’t want to be at a school that prays to Jesus maybe you should go to a school that isn’t focused on Jesus!

    If I go to a school based on muslim faith, will they take down all their “alla” stuff so I can pray to Jesus? NO!

    The difference here is that I’m smart enough to realize this and wouldn’t attend their school.

    Super Big DUH!!!! Stupid people are ruining this country!!!!

  16. Stupid ain’t the right word here. Heard about this yesterday. Mind you, it’s a private university so what business has the government in any of this. Again, this means no government money so what business does the Fed govt have here. Oh, silly me, in the age of Obamakov, Obama’s gons make policy for everyone, not even your dogs and cats are safe from it.

    Oh, Lord, deliver us from this evil any way shape or form. AMEN!

    1. The Central Government has been quite methodical is ensuring that nearly all private universities are dependent on Federal funds and controlled by Federal regulations. Soros and Saudi like non-profits donate heavily to private universities. With that leverage, the Statists have also placed their henchmen on the Boards of Trustees of private universities..

      Much pressure can be applied!

      The Lord has given us the knowledge and tools to fight this mortal enemy. It is now up to us. Will we take a stand?

      1. The USA gov has forced it’s way into private schools, by the use of grants, then scholarships. If a school want to ban those grants, they can ban Muslims. Take in to consideration, that about 1970, most colleges were losing money. Talk to a local college dean, they will be glad to tell you how their school is contolled this way. I had many conversations like this, and the dean always says we can stop this, with the community help. Up to you.
