tyler — This from "The Tower", the school newspaper at Catholic University, in Washington DC.
A private school.
New charges have recently been filed against the university on counts of illegal discrimination against its Muslim and female students.
The official allegations claim that the school, "does not provide space - as other universities do - for the many daily prayers Muslim students must make, forcing them instead to find temporarily empty classrooms where they are often surrounded by Catholic symbols which are incongruous to their religion.
[GW Law professor John] Banzhaf claims that [Catholic] University is denying Muslim students the same benefits that students of other religions are able to enjoy since there is no formal Muslim association sponsored by Catholic University but the Columbus School of Law has an association for Jewish students.
Is this all getting out of hand.
I have nothing against Muslim people. There are many who came to this country for a better life. They love it here and they assimilated.
But here lies the problem.
There are others who are here, and now that they are here, they want us to make a featherbed for them.
The Muslims who are upset here applied to go to school at Catholic university. Not the university of Tehran at Washington D.C.
What did they think they were going to find?
Why can't they be happy to be here and use the space afforded?
This is all getting ridiculous. This country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles.
Christianity and Judaism.
We don't hate others who aren't..
But what part of our culture do you not understand?
That's my point of view, what's yours?
