U.S. Muslims Say Crosses At Catholic University Violate Their “Human Rights”…
(Fox News) — 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.
The complaint was filed by John Banzhaf, an attorney and professor at George Washington University Law School. Banzhaf has been involved in previous litigation against the school involving the same-sex residence halls. He also alleged in his complaint involving Muslim students that women at the university were being discriminated against. You can read more on those allegations by clicking here.
Banzhaf 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.”
“It shouldn’t be too difficult somewhere on the campus for the university to set aside a small room where Muslims can pray without having to stare up and be looked down upon by a cross of Jesus,” he told Fox News.
and I say stuff it lying muslims. it is absolutely shameful! muslims have no shame. it is absolutely routine for muslims to make people of other faiths second class citizens in their own country (if they allow them to stay alive) in the muslim world it is routine to murder and attack christians with impunity and never suffer consequence for the carnage. and it is routine for muslims to burn churches and desecrate christian places of worship in muslim countries. muslim countries one and all restrict the right build churches and constantly oppress and harass christian communities. their is no compromise with muslims only ceding territory, rights, freedoms, the game is always the same and that is islam forcing “the other” to constantly be in retreat in some fashion no matter how small
we will some day be obliged to play cowboys and muslims to put a stop to the retreat or lose the future of our childrens children.
cedarbark at weasilzippers made these exellent points:
litigation jihad is very commonplace now; like the muslims who got jobs at the beer factory then wanted desk jobs away from alcohol, like the taxi drivers who refuse to carry blind people with seeing-eye dogs, like the taxi drivers who refuse to transport people even with closed new containers of alcohol, like the muslima at Disney who worked there for 3 years wearing her uniform then after she got her green card threatened to sue if he could not wear her slave cloth, like the muslims at the amusement part who were forewarned that the slave cloth was dangerous on certain rides and they still tried to get on and were stopped so are threatening to sue, like the muslims at the meat packing plant who want prayer times even though the Mexican and American workers have to stay extra time, like the muslima teacher in Chicago who took off for the Hajj abandoning her students then sued when she was terminated as warned even though a muslim can go to hajj any old time, like the muslima in JROTC who wanted to wear her slave cloth in a military parade…and on and on and on, like the muslima with bleeding homorrhoids who went to an incredibly busy ER and demanded a female doctor even though there was none working there at that shift and threatened to sue.
They embed themselves in conflicting circumstances precisely TO sue.
here is the flip side, here is what happens to a student in a majority muslim school, yeah its all relative. muslims have iit just as bad here as christians do in muslim lands…. blech.. puke.
The merciless persecution of Christians in Islamic lands continues.
(AINA) — In mid-October Egyptian media published news of an altercation between Muslim and Christian students over a classroom seat at a school in Mallawi, Minya province. The altercation lead to the murder of a Christian student. The media portrayed the incident as non-sectarian. However, Copts Without Borders, a Coptic news website, refuted this version and was first to report that the Christian student was murdered because he was wearing a crucifix.
“We wanted to believe the official version,” said activist Mark Ebeid, “because the Coptic version was a catastrophe, as it would take persecution of Christians also to schools.” He blamed the church in Mallawi for keeping quiet about the incident.
Today the parents of the 17-year-old Christian student Ayman Nabil Labib, broke their silence, confirming that their son was murdered on October 16, in “cold blood because he refused to take off his crucifix as ordered by his Muslim teacher.” Nabil Labib, the father, said in a taped video interview with Copts United NGO, that his son had a cross tattooed on his wrist as per Coptic tradition, as well as another cross which he wore under his clothes.
Both parents confirmed that Ayman’s classmates, who were present during the assault and whom they met at the hospital and during the funeral, said that while Ayman was in the classroom he was told to cover up his tattooed wrist cross. He refused and defiantly got out the second cross which he wore under his shirt. “The teacher nearly chocked by son and some Muslim students joined in the beating,” said his mother.
