Have we really come to this?

John Hayward of Breitbart reported.

Catholic University Investigated for Offending Muslims by Having too Many Crosses

“Complaint says crosses at Catholic school offensive, prevent Muslim prayers,” reads the headline at BeliefNet.

It’s one of those headlines that sounds like a bad joke, but it isn’t. It’s not exactly a serious complaint, either, and it isn’t coming from actual Muslim students in any event. “Baffled Catholic University officials say they have never received a complaint from any of the schools Muslim students,” writes BeliefNet.

In fact, the university expressed its bafflement in a full-length statement: “Catholic University’s faithfulness to our Catholic tradition has also made us a welcome home to students of other religions. No students have registered complaints about the exercise of their religions on our campus. We understand that a professor unaffiliated with Catholic University has made public allegations claiming that we are discriminating against our students on religious grounds, but we have not seen any legal filing – and will respond to them if we do.”

The sixty-page complaint was filed with the Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights by a one-man nuisance-lawsuit factory, George Washington University Law School Professor John Banzhaf. Muslim students are but pawns in Banzhaf’s game against Catholics.

Don't like crosses? Don't go to a Christian school. It really is that simple.

What do the Muslim students gain by attending a Catholic school? (I am a liberal just looking to get conservative views on current issues.) id like legitimate answers. Do the Muslim students feel they miss out on something if they don't go to a Catholic school, specifically this one?

A podium to complain from.

Isn't this like voluntarily moving to Alaska and bitching about cold weather? The students didn't suddenly become aware, and shocked by these crosses.

You're a liberal and I'm interested in your view on this.

Do you feel a school up front in it's leanings should change what these students had to have originally found tolerable? And, would you expect a Muslim school to make similar accommodations for Christian students?

A degree from a good school, the same thing most students are looking for.


It's not the Muslim students who are complaining. It's some activist claiming offense on behalf of the Muslim students.

I think he needs to go file a suit against UM Dearborn, for having footbaths that can only be used by Muslim students. My feet get dirty, too.

Have they put in separate areas for menstruating women yet?
