Complaint says crosses at Catholic school offensive, prevent Muslim prayers

Crosses in every room at Washingon D.C.’s Catholic University of America are a human rights violation that prevent Muslim students from praying.

That’s the complaint to the Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights filed by a professor from rival George Washington University across town.


GWU Law School Professor John Banzhaf takes the Catholic institution to task for acting “probably with malice” against Muslim students in a 60-page complaint that cites “offensive” Catholic imagery all over the Catholic school, which he says hinder Muslims from praying.

Baffled Catholic University officials say they have never received a complaint from any of the schools Muslim students.

Banzhaf, who already has a pending lawsuit against the university over ending its policy of allowing mixed-gender dormitories and has a history of filing civil rights suits on such topics as childhood obesity and smoking, filed the complaint alleging that Muslim students are not given their own prayer rooms.

He alleges that the university, “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,” according to the Tower, Catholic University’s student newspaper. 


The complaint further objects that Muslims must pray at the school’s chapels “and at the cathedral that looms over the entire campus – the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.”

A spokesperson for the human rights office said they are investigating Banzhaf’s complaint — and the inquiry could take as long as six months.

“This attorney is really turning civil rights on its head,” observed Patrick Reilly of the Cardinal Newman Socity. “He’s using the law for his own discrimination against the Catholic institution and essentially saying Catholic University cannot operate according to Catholic principles.”

The complaint is absurd, writes Thomas Peters on the website CatholicVote.


“Can you imagine a law professor helping Catholic students to sue a Jewish or Muslim school to demand that the schools install crosses, remove their religious symbols, and allow the Catholics to construct a chapel on their property?” wrote Peters. “Can you imagine the argument being that Jewish and Muslims schools using their religious symbols and following their faith traditions would be described in the legal brief as “offensive”?!

“Normally I would have confidence that this lawsuit will be deemed without merit, but the way things are going these days, I just can’t be sure anymore. Simply incredible.”

    Is it not a Catholic school — Hello — Go to a Muslim school and be happy — And are they not stepping on Christians rights to freedom of Religion —

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment RedHogg

    They come to America and trying to change things. They go to a Christian school and complain about it being Christian.

    Muslims seem to be trying real hard to use our laws to defeat us in their ignorance.

    yes, and we keep bending over backwards to accomodate these people. This country is falling to these people and that is exactly their plan. The state prison system in Ohio has had to remove pork from its meals because it could possibly come in contact with a Muslims INMATES food.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Rick

    I am not Catholic and am happy to defend the university. This is an absolutely ridiculous complaint. You don’t like the crucixes, go to another school or pray somewhere else. If this was a complaint from catholic students at a private muslim university I would feel the same way.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Linda

    I think that it is only reasonable to expect that if you go to a private, religious school, you should expect to see religious icons. If you don’t like it, go to a muslim school. It is time that this nation stand for religious freedom. That is not what the religion of islam teaches. When will we say, Enough?!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Kim

    I hope this really does not go anywhere. They knew the decor before the registered. Do not back down! If we give in to this they will slowly take away every aspect of our beliefs and practices. They are allowed theirs why are we persecuted for ours!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Canon Alberic

    I hope that CUA fights this stupid lawsuit as hard as it possibly can. If these heathens want to attend a Catholic university, they need to expect certain things, and they need to adhere to University policies. If they don’t like it, they can go to a Public university where idiotic “racially discriminatory” whinings are actually taken seriously by the politically correct crowd. I will be hugely disappointed if the university gives in to this lawsuit and this moron of a “professor”

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment vanessa

    Here’s an idea: Don’t go to a Catholic University if Christianity is offensive to you.

  • Ralph Vaughan

    Silly Moslems! Stealth jihads are supposed to be stealthy, not stupid. You should take a few pages from CAIR’s playbook…that way, not only would the university not feel the knife go in, they wouldn’t have a clue until blindsided by attorneys from the DOJ’s Sharia Law Division. Seems like you have a dunce for a lawyer.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment bob johnson

    I don’t know if Professor John Banzhaf is Muslim or not, he definitely does not go to school there. So there should not be any comments about Muslims complaining about this. There should be lots of comments about an attorney trying to tell a private religious college not to offend anybody at the college with their religious practices.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment A Son of Liberty

    In case they are not aware this is a catholic school. Cartholic schools have crosses, pictures of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    If they want to find a place to pray then find one but leave the crosses and pictures alone! And if they do not like it then “LEAVE”!
    GOD Save the Republic!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Chris

    Absolutely incredulous. I believe in equal rights and the fact that there is a lawsuit for this is an insult to the intelligence of people.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment LutheranChik

    First of all: Folks, please re-read the article. Some nefarious cabal of jihadist Muslim students isn’t driving this complaint about the Christian visual art at the university — it’s a grandstanding, frivolous-lawsuit-mongering non-Muslim attorney at another university. Xenophobic much?

    Secondly: There are many reasons why students might want to study at private universities whose faith traditions are not their own. As most commenters have noted/alluded to, these students know what they’re getting into when they enroll and don’t need to be legally “protected” from exposure to that institution’s religious roots.

    Finally: I can’t speak for all church-sponsored colleges or universities, but many of them, aware that some of their student body are persons of other faiths, make accomodations for them of one kind or another — recognizing their student organizations, offering meeting space, working with students whose religious observances conflict with, say, exam schedules to make alternate arrangements, and so forth. That’s just hospitality to “the stranger,” which I seem to remember some guy named Jesus indicating he wanted his friends to demonstrate on his behalf.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Lara Stephens

    Can’t believe this! Why go to the school if it offends you? I think this lawyer is nuts. This should never be allowed to go any further.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Allan

    I find the Muslims complaint rediculous. Catholic University is a Catholic school. What part of “Catholic” don’t they understand? 40+ years ago I received my masters from DePaul University, after having attended all public schools and state universities. I found the crucifix in every room to be comforting. The crucifix just hangs there; it does not threaten anyone.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment dwzw

    when they applied did they somehow fail to notice the name CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY on the application? because the fact that they are seeking higher education there seems to be somehow incongruent if they find it offensive- it may also imply that they have yet to master their basic education as well if they never took these things into account until now

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Rayna

    None of the Muslim students have made ANY complaints so why are people turning against them? It was one man who made an assumption about them, and now they are being called ridiculous?? THEY DID NOT DO ANYTHING WRONG!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Frankenstein


    Racism, xenophobia, and religious intolerance are Christian values? That’s what I’m seeing from the comments here. Appalling. If you are swearing, judging people, and being an all out jerk, you ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN. I know God isn’t real, and I’M a better Christian than you! That’s pretty sad.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Tamme

    A Catholic University should have crosses. I would be offended if they were taken down. I am not even a Catholic but I am a Christian. As a Christian I have the right to see crosses, to hear church bells and to give a prayer of thanks in restaurants, which I do. If a Muslim – or any faith for that matter – would like to attend a Catholic Univeristy…why not? What better way is there to bring them to Christ.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Marge

    If the crosses offend other religions then they do not belong in a Catholic University. People are trying to take Christ out of Christmas to. Why don’t people leave us Catholics a lone. This lawyer should not be able to go any further.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment bstee

    This has nothing to do with any student going to the university. Not a single student has complained or made such an allegation. This law professor simply does this to gain publicity. He also sued MCDonalds for “pre-frying” french fries (and won millions). For all the possible just causes in the world, you feel the need to pick this? And the really sad part is, it is working. We are giving him free publicity, and so many on here have jumped into post that the “Muslim Students” are rediculous and when they applied they should have known…does anyone even know if there are practicing Muslim students attending the school? I suspect if they are practicing they are not attending this school. I can tell you, I personally would not attend a Muslim school (though I respect their rights to have one). I would not bow down to any but Christ Jesus. I suspect they would have similar views.

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Ei

    This is a non issue and the lawyer should never take this case. Only Christians should attend a Catholic school. Any one who doesn’t believe in these principals doesn’t belong there. We should not change the Christian principles on which this country was founded for anyone!!!!!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Dr.L

    I am a professor at a Catholic college and it is enriching to all students ( and faculty)to have classmates from all different faiths and cultures. We make certain accommodations such as excused absences for religious holydays and space for gathering for students of other faiths. We do NOT, in any way, diminish our Catholic orientation or symbols.
    No Muslim students are complaining at Catholic U. It is the action of an ego-maniacal American attorney.

    PROFESSOR NAJEEBA SYEED-MILLER from Lincoln said “The diversity of humankind is not a curse from God. It is a sign of God’s creation, and the beauty of humanity is in our very differences.” A special aired on PBS concerning a multifaith theological education program launching at southern California’s Claremont Lincoln University. The program describes itself as America’s first interreligious school of theology, one that will train pastors, rabbis, and eventually Muslim imams all on one campus. The school’s philosophy was captured in the opening remarks above are of Muslim-American religious scholar Najeeba Syeed-Miller, a professor at Claremont Lincoln.

    I can not believe this is even happening. This is a PRIVATE Catholic School. They have the right to display relics anywhere they chose.

I can not believe our country has come to this.

    When Catholic parents send their children to a Catholic school, it’s partly to learn the religion, not to be ashamed of their religious heritage and symbols, to apologize for being Catholic.
    BYU does not have mixed-gender dormitories. And, hey, not a crucifix in sight. Perhaps the offended Muslims ought to give Utah a try.

    It is unbelievable that this would not be a frivolous complaint. Why in the first place would a Muslim student choose a Catholic University for their higher education? This is human rights taken too far! You are right that if a Catholic student went to a Muslim university and filled a suit citing the same offensive signs and symbols of the Muslim faith, that person would be called crazy for going to a Muslim school expecting no visible signs of religion. Shaking my head in disbelief, how far do we bend over backward to protect rights before it just become contortion?

They fear freedom of other religons, freedom of choice, free speechand most of all FREE WILLThey are afraid of all forms of freedom. They are locked in their seventh century religon and know no other way to act toward other people. They are not here to be nice or be equal,they are here to take over our country.
    We must stand up to this action here and now and stop caving into their demands based on their like the public footbath stations they deemanded and won in many other places in our country. Well guess what they do not have them in their own countries. WAKE UP!!! America and start fighting back and remember the new word FREEDOMPHOBIA!!! Because that is what they are

  • http://Righttothepoint Nickie Stevens

    No one anywhere said that Muslims must attend this school or any other ‘private’ University. If Muslims don’t like what they hear and see, let them go else where. But I suspect that it isn’t the Muslim students who don’t like the school because I believe they do. I believe the problem is with the attorney who claims to represent the Msulim students who is causing all the problems.

    Apparently, the Muslims like the school or else they would never have gone there in the first place. They knew that this school, like all Catholic schools, are a in a ‘Catholic Way.’ Perhaps it is some radical trouble making Muslims who are reatining the lawyer.

    Why are the muslims going to a Catholic University? I’m not catholic, but out of respect for Jesus we really shouldn’t display crosses, that’s kind of arrogant. Let our actions show what kind of faith we have, it will either be a saving faith or a dead faith. Muslims pray to a false god, they have a dead faith, a born again saint prays to the heavenly Father in Jesus’ name, this is a saving faith.

    Islam needs reformation very badly, rather then whitewashing in America and pretending to be a “peaceful religion”. Nothing could be further from truth! Koran and Hadith are filled with hateful statements against the Jews, Christians and “infidels”.

    In the past Jews and Christians were able to live in Muslim countries as second-hand citizens, dhimmis, who had to pay special tax. There are no Jews left in the Arab world and very few in any Muslim country since Islamists have had pogroms when Israel was formed. There were more Jewish refugees who fled Muslim countries into Israel then Muslims who fled Israel in and around 1948. Those were settled in Israel and Palestinians are used as a pawn to rile up Muslim mobs around the world against the Jews.

    Now Christians are suffering the same fate in most Muslims countries, which underwent Jasmin “revolution” only to see rise of Muslim Brotherhood, an intolerant and violent group that is into grab for power and wants to impose strict sharia on everybody. Sharia is incompatible with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and all those countries practicing sharia should be expelled from UN since they do not belong to the family of civilized humans.

    Muslims in the US who think that they can use our laws to impose their medieval religion and its intolerance should to to countries where they are free to practice such “justice” and stop bothering regular Americans. The Ground Zero Mosque is an affront to human freedom and humanity!

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Gretchen

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Donald

    When I read this first in the news and later here I was still stunned.
    1) Is this Catholic School a public university or private. If it is private, then people don’t have to go there. If they do, it is common sense that they would accept the entire package, including crosses, and Catholic theology.
    2) I really don’t understand that now, suddenly there is malice toward Muslems. This university has been around for many, many years. Having taught in a private Catholic high school, I’m sure no one sat down and said “let’s upset the Muslems!” Again, this is a private university, run by the Catholic church. Doesn’t malice demand that there is predetermination?
    3) We need to use more common sense and less political sense. In today’s times, the political correctness has gotten to a level never seen before. It’s not that I’m anti-Muslem. I went to college with just about everything. But there was a difference….it was a public university and we all worked toward a level of cooperation. If there was a Muslem university, wouldn’t I be expected to respect Muslem points of view, although I was a Christian? After all, I would have made the choice to attend that particular university and therefore go along with its policies.
    Just saying…….

    At least the Muslim students are able to worship in the way they choose, which is FAR MORE than any Christian might be allowed in many Islamic countries. They are offered the freedom to worship, but THEY chose to attend a Catholic institution. The Catholic school should NOT be required to remove symbols of their faith for a few students who follow a different religion. I doubt the symbols offend anyone else. Freedom to practice religion DOES NOT mean DICTATING how ALL others should practice theirs!

    This makes absolutely no sense! If catholic or Christian imagery offends you, why would you go to a Catholic University? That is like a Christian going to a Muslim University and complaining about Muslim imagery! That would not be tolerated, and they would not cater to a Christian. This world is catering way to much to complaints from other religions and atheists. If they don’t like it, don’t look at it. The only valid complaint they have is the prayer space request. If there is a number of students who require this, then they should provide a room.

    The Freedoms provided to US citizens must be upheld. As long as Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, etc. institutions do not preach antagonistic and inciting teachings against fellow citizens, then, their specific cultural teachings should be off limits Constitutionally.

    However, when teaching declare and suggest aggressive behaviors be taken, to neutralize a specific culture, then We, Constitutionalists are bound to protect the maligned and to aggressively protest and thwart those hostile elements that stir real and true hatred based on falsehoods , revisionist histories, and 7th Century illiterate and irrationally thinking mobs, e.g. Islam comes to mind. Sharia Law has NO rightful place in American Society. The mere fact that muslim “sensitivities” are offended by a Private Catholic College religious decor, exemplifies that Islam has NO Place in the United States and its very existence here, if allowed to proliferate, will from their mosques, spill hatred and bloodshed. All one has to do is see the violence from muslims toward their host country citizenry. Europe is nearly lost. Our freedoms are truly at risk with the barbaric sharia doctrines. Already, Europeans act the ‘second class’ dehimi class. Islam sets its sights (sites – as in weapons) on ruling over, not living as equal partners and assimilating and integrating within its host country. The Catholic School should stand by its heritage.

    Doesn’t anyone else see what’s really going on with this lawsuit?

    It’s not really intended to force Catholic University to remove religious symbols. My bet is that it’s got another point — to sum up and highlight the aggression and supremacism of Islam and Sharia within our own culture. To wake people up.

    We’ve all seen the reports, day after day: demands for taxpayer-financed footbaths and mosques, lawsuits over demanded prayer and Ramadan “accommodations,” demands for Islamic gender apartheid in public facilities, the “right” to degrading and dangerous religious costuming, the silencing of any criticism of Islam or its self-proclaimed prophet as offensive, and the abusive treatment of women and people who try to leave Islam.

    I bet every remaining non-Muslim in the Middle East, all of whom live with the constant threat of Islamic silencing, violence, murder, rape and kidnapping, the burning of their churches and temples and the murders of their religious leaders, would know exactly what this lawsuit is about.

    This professor is crazy like a fox.

    I am not a big fan of catholicism. However, this could be typical of the encroaching camel with the nose in the tent. From what I understand, the muslim students are not the ones instigating the lawsuit. This lawyer strikes me as a troublemaker, and perhaps has an agenda he is unwilling to divulge. If this did originate with muslims, they can go to some madrassa or wherever they do not have to view offending symbols. Hopefully this will just get tossed out of court. Otherwise, I hope the school stays firm, does not remove any symbols. A separate room might be nice, but in this case not necessary. Stick to your guns, do not change anything.

    I know, why doesn’t someone file a lawsuit against a Muslim school to force them to have crosses and christian prayer rooms in heir facilities just like the article talks about. We will then be able to see how the ACLU and other liberal organizations handle that one. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander!!! It’s time to turn the tables folks!

    The lawyer who brought this suit was repeatedly asked the question this morning on WMAL, a local D.C. talk station, “Who brought this lawsuit to you?” He wouldn’t answer. “Did a student from the school bring the suit?” He wouldn’t answer. He refused to answer on the grounds of “privilege” no matter how the question was asked. Obviously no student brought the suit against CUA. Apparently Washington, D.C. is the one place in this country where you can sue someone without a client complaint. This guy is also suing CUA to prevent them from doing away with mixed-sex dorms. He has brought these suits under the pretext of “Human Rights” violations by the school. From the first-hand interviews I’ve seen/heard, I believe it has more to do with his ego than human rights. Also, if you type his name on a search, you’ll get his website where you’ll find that he teaches a course — “Legal Activism” to students so they can “learn to become public interest lawyers by bringing their own legal actions.” Reading through, I draw the conclusion the Mr. Banzhaf does not really believe in the unalienable right to freedom bestowed upon all mankind, only what he and the other “public interest activists” deem to be “allowed” freedoms. Just what we need today, PC lawyers looking for problems that don’t exist. UGH!

THEY CAME HERE,, DO I need to write it again, They came to America,, STOP TRYING TO CHANGE OUR way of life. Let a christian go to a muslim college and lets see what happens then,, Sorry But the idiot we have in the white house has been pushing this on the American People since he got elected,,Oh,but THATS RIGHT he is a christian,,YEA RIGHT, and for those that believe that I have land to sell you in Florida. What,WHAT is it going to take for people to wake up and get this crap to STOP. If we continue to ALLOW this to happen, you can KISS AMERICA as we ONCE knew it GOODBY,,and we are almost there people.

    If indeed Muslim students have not offered a complaint then why would anyone outside the University do so ? If

When I received Confirmation I never thought the day would come where in America I would have to defend my religion. No Catholic should apologize for Catholicism or its symbols.

    [Not sure if this comment posted properly the first time, trying again.]

    I’ve always believed this, and I’ll say it here; freedom OF religion is not freedom FROM religion. It saddens me that constitutional (not even civil) rights are thus misinterpreted as, among other things, the right to make everyone else let you do whatever you want.

    You’re allowed to have your own religion, and practice it – if doing so doesn’t violate any LAWS, that is, for law supersedes religion in THIS country – and Congress isn’t allowed to infringe upon it. The key is in remembering that everyone ELSE is as free to practice theirs as you are yours – so you can’t just say (effectively) “You don’t explicitly accommodate me and my freedom of religion trumps yours because my religion is of a minority.”

    And the worse thing is that it’s not even about Islam. It’s about a guy who, admitting that even the Muslims at this university aren’t speaking up about the “issue” themselves, still alleges a discrimination of omission, of inaction; still contends that diversity of beliefs must be met with universal acceptance; that there can’t be one truth but that everyone needs to believe that there can’t be one truth. Isn’t the paradox in that immediately apparent?

    Don’t just listen to me, read up on it. Do your own research. And after everything, apply common sense. Thank you.

    Is there a country in the world where immigrating Muslims have not caused a problem? Is there a country in the world where, once the immigrating Muslims became significant in numbers, they did not start to persecute non-Muslims(infidels in their eyes)–even to the death of their victims? Look at the trouble they have caused in France and the UK. You would think that Washington would take the hint —– stop the Muslim immigration and start deporting them. For those who think this sounds harsh —-just wait till your kids or grandkids have to submit to Islam or lose their lives —- and I am not being overly dramatic. Christians are fleeing Muslim countries in fear for their lives —-think it won’t happen here? It is just a matter of time if the trend is not reversed. Lebanon is a perfect example. It was a Christian country; the Christians gave Muslims asylum and before long the Christians were fleeing for their very lives —just ask Brigitte Gabriel.

    I am sick and tired for a muslim to tell other Americans that it is offensive for this and that. Let them go back to their country where it is offensive for us not to find a church. We will not live there!!!
    If a muslim choses a Catholic University to study at, they must accept for what it stands. If they dont like it, go to a muslim University, which hopefully will not offend you. This is the USofA and that is the way it is. Perhaps we should sue them for chosing an obvious University, which is catholic and wanting to convert it to what ever they chose. My advise is “dont accept muslim students, unl;ees they sign a paper that they will accept all the crosses and yet do their praying as they chose.” Have them sign it. Tell the professor he has no right to sue for what is OBVIOUSLY A CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY NOT MUSLIM UNIVERSITY. Unless the professor does not know how to read or know the difference.
    I am sick of this mess with muslims. Stick to your guns and dont give in, it is all about manipulation and gaining control.

    For the muslims who are devout and follow the koran, it is their duty to wage war against all other religions until allah and islam reign supreme, even if it means their destruction.

    Their religion and their sharia law are absolutely not compatable with the American way of life, our society and our laws.

    Either they relax their views to accept us as we are and coexist in peace with us, or they need to get out and go back to whatever armpit of the earth they came from.

    To D.T. Radmilovich: You are absolutely correct. He also cancelled/banned our national day of prayer, and then attended a muslim prayer breakfast with 50 imams from around the country on the whitehouse lawn, and on the day our national prayer breakfast was supposed to be held.

    I have my own copy of the koran translated to English by NJ Dawood in 1956 reprinted in 1993. It is one of the most hate filled books I have ever read. Everyone would do well to know thy enemy. Get the book and read it, even if you just borrow it from the local library.

If our own laws wont support & ensure our own way of life/beliefs,culture is maintained above all other fanatical & oppressive ideaologies then we must fight fire with fire. Christians,Jews & other religions must start the same far fetched actions opposing muslim prayer rooms, mosques,halal food,burqa’s etc etc. If it was up to this religion, Nothing western or non muslim would remain. I find it offensive that such a violent,fanatical & oppressive religion can cause such upheaval in our western world. Westerners need to make a stand or we will all be living like muslims. No rights for women,No hotels,clubs,mixing with the opposite sex,removal of all homosexuals,women wearing burqa’s and of course men entiled to have as many wives or partners as they wish.

    The Muslims cannot conquer us militarily so they have resorted to waging a campaign of cultural warfare to achieve their ends.To all those that think there are “good muslims” who want peace with us and “bad muslims” who work for our destruction; wake up! They ALL want our destruction; there is no such thing as a “good muslim”. The Koran is based on the death and destruction of all people not Muslim, and this includes us. If the Muslims don’t like the way we do things, they are more than free to go back where they came from. They are the immigrants and they MUST adapt to our way of doing things. If not, deport them. It is time for the American people to wake up and realize that we are under attack. Islam is NOT a peaceful religion and Muslims are NOT your friends. If these students don’t like Catholic accouterments, they should not have chosen to go to a Catholic school. Very simple. I hope to God that Catholic University defends itself vigorously and expels every Muslim currently attending class. We are losing ground quickly.

    Seems a bit unreasonable that a Catholic school would be required to remove its Catholic identity to make room for an incompatible religion.

    As a devout catholic (daily mass whenever possible) I read the article and subsequent posts with great interest. I am shocked by lack of reading comperehension and the degree of anti muslim sentiment of the posters.
    One person, the attorney, is objecting to the University’s alleged lack of accomodation. There was no mention any muslim students taking part in the law suit, yet the majority of posters attacked muslim students and muslims in genral.
    One person even called for an end to muslim immigration. How ironic, considering catholics were victims of the same type of discrimination in the mid 19th century (look up the Know Nothing Party).
    This is a straw man issue, there is no movement to limit the freedom of christian schools to operate in the way they see fit. There is enough religious intolerance in the world already, don’t get duped into contributing to the hatred! Live as Jesus would have us live, with love for all.

    I am amazed at how many people have responded to this article have simply not read the entire article, or read it through hate-tinted glasses and saw only what they wanted to see. As a number of commenters have pointed out, there is not a single Muslim student at this school who has made any kind of complaint about this issue, nor are they in any way involved in the lawsuit. Apparently they did know exactly what to expect when they enrolled in a Christian University (which has every right to display objects related to their faith anywhere on campus they like). Please place the blame for this frivolous where it is due, on the American lawyer (who is probably Christian) who filed it.

    In response to some commenters who assumed that no Muslim school would allow those of different faiths to attend, I know from personal experience that this is not true of all Muslim schools. In fact, I don’t know of one that prohibits students of other faiths.

    It disturbs me greatly about the passiveness of the American people and their lack of awareness. They are so busy with their electronic things that they either aren’t aware or don’t care about what is happening to this coountry.They elected a president that can’t and won’t produce his birth certificate and who allows illegals to run amok in this country and giving them everything free until Americans are losing their jobs and homes, and now when he should be questioning this renegade lawyer about his trouble making between the Catholic college and Muslim students he’s puting his nose in to a shooting because it’s white against black. None of his business.I’ve been writing my Congressmen since 1993 about the folly of allowing this country to be overrun with illegals. No one paid attention. Then in 2001 the unspeakable happened to the twin towers and oh yes, the American people thought it was terrible, but if you didn’t have anyone in it it was soon forgotten and they thought it ok for the Muslims to build a mosque next to the site.That was unforgiveable! I have written Congress about how quietly the Muslims are puching their evil religion on and nobody seem to care. And who gives backing to all of this? Our judges, Supreme Court and our President. When he spoke at the Catholic college and they took down all of their symbols to accommodate him was disgusting, and if he is a Christian as he claims why would they even dream of doing that? And why would they do it for anybody? This so called Christian president also cancelled/barred our day of prayer and on the same dayattended a Muslim prayer breakfast with 50 imams on the Whitehouse lawn. There should have been an all out hew and cry about that but the American people are too busy with their electronic games and toysto be bothered.This country is very close to a severe race riot and still nobody cares. Well, when we allow enough Jihadists in here it really won’t matter whether we care or not.I thought when they cut off our journalists head and showed it on tv that it would jar them in to awareness of the danger we are all in, but no, most of them don’t even know who Mr. Pearl was.As for the Muslim students at the Catholic college, maybe being exposed Our governmentAmerican peopleto a loving GOD would be to our and their advantage. Since they are in our country and our school I feel that all Burques be banned. Anyone completely covering themselves most likely has something to hide, whether it’s ID, sex, or weapon.If anyone has a right to complain it’s the American people.Since white Christian people settled this country and made it the most powerful country in the world I don’t understand since we’ve been overrun with all the scum the other nations could send us why we are being treated as if we were the enemy and are treated like second class citizens. Since I am a senior from the WW11 generation I have had a front seat watching my country being destroyed and it really hurts, since our government is allowing it. Lets waken the sleeping giant and restore the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Nobody will stop you… Stop trying to change our ways! I’ve heard more than enough on this issue! Religious daggers? and blah blah blah? Get Real!!! I wonder what would happen, if we went over to a muslim country etc.. and started trying to force our ways on them….I could just imagine, the uproar that would ensue.

    This is not “human rights.” It’s about Muzlim rights above all others. Rats continually attempt to take over any institution with their bullshit demans for special treatment. They should go to another school but the real issue for them is the fear of Apostasy. They fear that Rats may stop inbreeding with their cousins and sisters, leave Izlam and embrace Bacon. Bacon is the key to world peace. Izlam will submit to Bacon or pay the Bacon Jizya. If I were the students in that school, I would coat the place with Bacon Grease and continue to coat the rest of the USA so no place is good enough to pray and they can go back to whatever butt scab they came from and pounds sand then hump goats. Did I mention that Mohammed was the worst man to ever live? You gotta be pretty f’d up to go jump in the grave with your dead aunt Fatima, dress her up in your clothes. get caught, say she was the mother of all believers and you married her.

    The most wonderful thing about OUR culture is freedom of choice. Our Catholic Schools are FREE to have Catholic symbols anywhere and everywhere they want. Muslims are free to attend a Catholic school AS IT IS. They are equally FREE TO GO ELSEWHERE if the Catholic School elements offend them. What was the point of their even choosing to attend a Catholic School? All part of a plan I suspect. They would have toured the School in the beginning, they would have seen all the symbols etc. that they are now claiming as offensive yet they still signed up. Why? Why join? Because it is was stratagem all along. An agenda to infiltrate and eventually demand that YOU change things that offends their self believed SUPERIOR religion. Anything you do change simply confirms their narcissist superiority complex. Give an inch..take a nation. The fact that they find YOUR stuff offensive tells you ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW about who they are and how they think. YOU are unimportant to them period.

  • BozoerRebbe

    I don’t think Banzhaf is being anti Catholic here, he’s forcing the school administration to choose between Catholicism and multiculturalism. Banzhaf is a bit of a legal prankster and I believe that he’s trying to make a point, in a roundabout way, about how Islamists want it both ways and how institutions like our universities bend to their wishes. They want to suppress things they find blasphemous while insisting that others accommodate their own actions. This may be a Catholic school, but like most universities the administration likely tilts left politically and embraces multiculturalism.

  • Barbbieb

    Catholic University…what’s the problem…if you are not of the Catholic faith and choose to attend this university, you must be respectful of the guidelines and agenda of that university. You are absolutely free to attend any other university. This is another ploy to agitate…not even worthy of discussion.

  • Rick

    This is just plain stupid! A Catholic University (optional choice) is being complained against by a professor from another school (not affiliated with the school at all) about someone being offended (free speech, free religion). My guess is he didn’t get the teaching position at the school that he wanted.

  • Al_the_Plumber

    BTW, regarding: He alleges that the university, “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,” according to the Tower, Catholic University’s student newspaper.

    Then universities should not provide space such as this for Muslims or any other religion or any kind of group at all unless they pay for it. It is biased against the others. The costs can be included in the contract for students or elsewhere.

  • Rezqewr

    The question is this: Banzhaf is a professor at a different university, and is in no way affected by the policies of the Catholic college. Does he even have standing to file a lawsuit against the school? Sounds like another liberal trouble-maker to me.

  • jlh243_1

    The muslims don’t want to pray to allah in the presence of a cross because of the simple fact that allah is none other than satan himself, and satan was defeated at the cross! So these satan worshiping muslims want to pervert and twist the law to browbeat everyone to “respect and honor” their satanic god named allah, and their demonic “prophet” muhammad, goat feces and donkey piss be upon his head!

  • Thinkbeforeyoustink

    So what should the Catholic University of America have in it ?

    How can it be a “Faith” if it is coerced by FORCE? ….the threat of force turns their so-called faith into intimidation and undermines any good they could hope to do.
    No one should be more anti-terror than a Muslim, given the harm the use of force does to their claims or righteousness.
    Further, it is Soooo… out of date!
    They claim Jesus as a prophet who proceeded Mohammad…. yet they seem to completely have missed the entire theme change from the vengefulness of the Old Testament to the compassion of the New. How could they miss that?
    Bad leadership perhaps? ….perhaps it was FORCED upon them?

  • Mark_Trail

    The Enemy’s weakness is The Cross of Christ. Therefore, there should be more Crosses, more Crucifixes and more processions of the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar to drive away the evil spirits that infest the minds of Muslims. Christians in general are an offense to those who wish to deny the sacrificial love of Jesus, the Son of God and Second Person of the Holy Trinity. Love is self-sacrifice of our own selfish wants, and willing the highest and best good for the sake of the beloved, our God, and our neighbor, but God first. If that offends Muslims, then they need to re-think their faith that demands blood sacrifice of Christians and Jews.

And he who sits on the throne will give them shelter. 16 They will never again be hungry or thirsty; they will never be scorched by the heat of the sun. 17 For the Lamb on the

  • John Feasel

    Having read a little deeper into this issue, I’ve found that no Muslim made any complaints about the fact that there is at least one cross in almost every room on the campus. This appears to be something the liberal George Washington University professor came up with all on his own. While I do not trust Muslims any further than I can throw them, I will say that, according to the other reports I’ve read, they are standing with the Catholic University against the ignoramus, John Banzhaf, in his self-appointed role as the latest PC Policeman. Everyone needs to calm down, and understand that this is an attempt by yet another misguided liberal with an agenda to destroy Christianity or some other twisted goal. Maybe Catholic wouldn’t hire him or something, who knows, but this was not brought on by any Muslim.

    Crosses at a Catholic church? Really? If all the crosses offend you, go somewhere else to pray. Why should they change their church just for you?

  • johnd9425 .

    Typical liberal, Democratic complaint. If they don’t like something they want it banned for everyone. While a conservative…if they are offended then they just DON’T GO to a Catholic school….Liberals make me want to puke. they are the racists, bigoted assholes , not conservatives

    Do you know the story of Solomon? He was considered the wisest king of Israel. His downfall was he had to many wives from different nations with false gods. He soon became tolerant of their idols and soon fell because if it.
    I used to go to Catholic school. After reading the Bible, they are wrong in a lot of things, even the Bible I was reading while in school. They just didn’t teach those scriptures. like grace is a free gift, and no works by man will allow you to enter heaven. Only by God’s grace alone. You cannot pay or pray someone out of hell or this made up thing of purgatory. No where in scripture does it mention purgatory.
    But still, if you start letting false things enter your life, they will change your life. Don’t let the descendents if Hagar and Abraham ruin the descendants of Abraham and Sarah.

  • Flora Smith Key

    If someone from a non-Catholic faith applies to a Catholic University, aren’t they giving “implied consent” to studying & living among Christian symbols? The fight for legitimate Civil Rights is damaged by unrealistic lawsuits that exists only in the mind a overzealous lawyer, trying to make a name for himself.

    The catholic school has its own right too, the school has its own regulations,& must have been created under an act so no professor of law should come & start trouble. Can Islamic schools remove the symbol cos of Christians or believers of other religion. they (the muslim students)& the Prof. hear the name of the Sch. Let them attend Islamic universities if crosses are disturbing them, crosses cant be removed from christian schools cos they believe in the cross infact it’s the pillar of Christianity.

    I would expect that every room in a Catholic school or hospital would have a cross on the wall the same as I would expect every room in a Muslim school or hospital have a prayer rug or designated prayer area. I don’t know if Muslim’s have an icon so am not qualified to state what Muslim’s would have in their schools, but I certainly wouldn’t sue anyone if I saw something showing their religion. Either ignore the crosses or find another school. Simple.

    Jesus used a whip to get the money changers out of the temple. A muslim who enrolls in a Catholic school should expect to see all items of Catholic heritage and to study from Catholic approved books. There are plenty of universities to choose from. Find one that suits you.

  • Cali girl

    As Paul Harvey said, “Here is the rest of the story.” The lawsuit is not brought by students at Catholic University, but by a sue happy professor at George Washington University. This article states that the Muslim students at Catholic University are upset with him. In September he advertised for Muslim students to join him in the lawsuit and no one responded. This is the link to the article.

    I’m sorry … but WHAT THE HELL is a Muslim Student doing at a Catholic University? What did he or she expect going to a CATHOLIC University … the Star of David? … Mohammed? What kind of JACKASSES are they who complain that a Catholic Univ. would have CATHOLIC Icons, Crosses, Stations of the Cross, Masses? Why were they even allowed into the college since we know how the muslims feel about Christians(especially Catholics). When will the courts and Congress get smart and boot all these people back to the Middle East where they belong. They love and want to participate in their Islamic religion then go to a Muslim./Islamic school. You need to be in a place where you can pray freely and push your religion on everyone around you THEN go back where it is practiced religiously. Stop trying to change our country to suit yourselves. GO BACK TO THE DESERT and pray to whoever you want.

    The US is also home to various cultures and religions and was founded with freedom of religion in mind. So the statement that they should “go home and pray” is pretty absurd; talk about being un-American.

    As for the silly complaint, yes, that is absurd also. However, note that no Muslims have complained. This is a 2011 complaint (not the same as a lawsuit) made by an American law professor (not a Muslim) who has a history of doing this sort of thing for various “causes.”

    This is going wayyyyy to far. First it would be nice to know if a student actually filed a complaint or if this is this attorney’s idea of a joke. Anyone who attends a private educational facility in this country should know the philosophy of the school they are choosing. If they have difficulty with any of it’s philosophies then they are free to choose another school that shares their religion or philosophy, not complain about it once they are in the midst of it …. and then when they are there, if they are offended, they need to do the mature thing and find a new school.
    When my son attended a Catholic High School, we expected that the school would be sharing it’s religious convictions with the students, we are not Catholic. When he was going to Elementary school, I looked into a Christian School, I discussed their philosophies with the Principal, and found them to be too “radical” and chose not to send him there …. enough said … they should find a new school or accept what they chose in the first place.

    This is what is happening to the Christians in the orient… there are no comments to describe islamic cruelty and barbarism!
    Still people can’t accept that Islam is evil demonic death-cult and ‘allah’ is NOT the God of the Bible! Muhammad was evil psychopathic murderer who commended to torture and behead whole cities including women and children. Unfortunately many Catholics do not know that, and even the last three Popes compromised Faith with islamists allowing them to pray in churches! John Paul II kissed Koran and called it a “holy book”! So, if Popes don’t know what islam is – what to expect from other poorly informed catholics. Catholics are spineless showing mercy where shouldn’t be given none but a strong prosecution, and that’s why they pay the price for their religious liberalism, passivity and lack of biblical knowledge.
    They should kick out from the Christian school demanding muslims because they didnt come for education but to make sabotage and diversion, and that’s what they always do and are trained for.

There is a hidden agenda in which evil force are manipulating minds, hearts and will with lies that are making Muslim, Christians, Jews and many more mutate into beast that only will make many suffer the horror of hell for ever.
    As a human we should not fight each other, but the evil forces that are in us and around us with prayers and helping each other not to sin.
    We Christians need to stand in prayers as The bishop of Nigeria did with the rosary.
    Let us forgive and forget each other and plea with sincere sorrow our trespasses against God, each other and our selves. Let us also with prayers together stop the rage of Satan, Powers and The Flesh and May for once all human get together make clear to the devil that is enough.

    Why are Muslims attending a Catholic University when they know everything there is going to offend them? If there was a Muslim University, and Catholics attended, let’s see how far a similar complaint would fly! This idiocy cannot go on. There are plenty of secular universities available to Muslims, so one has to presume these Muslims chose this university for the purpose of being obnoxious and frankly stupid. They have no business in a university, as it seems they are mentally challenged.

  • Jasmin Chambers

    Why so you think!?! To be obnoxious and disruptive.

  • Jasmin Chambers

    Are you serious? If that is what they wanted, there are a myriad of secular schools from which to choose in this county. Do you honestly think that is the only university available to them. Heck there are on-line universities. So, think real hard and try to guess why these Muslims chose that school.

  • Jasmin Chambers

    Good one!

  • Jasmin Chambers

    If that was the reason, then these Muslims would clearly understand that these Catholics are not going to convert to Islam. What if the Catholic university told the attending Muslims they could not show any outward indication of their Muslim-ness because it made THEM (Catholics) uncomfortable in THEIR own university? How would that be? If that were the case, I believe there would be indignation and screams from the attending Muslims agitators for lawyers and probably threats to kill as well. If a cartoon offends, imagine what an overt demand for them to totally give up their show of “religion”, since Catholics apparently aren’t supposed to show their religion on a campus that is not secular, and sponsored by Catholics.

    If they are smart at all, they better stay away from Baptist universities. It isn’t just Muslims who will be voicing their offense.

Screw your fake god allah the helpless idiot, and screw your self-proclaimed prophet and profiteer, mohammed the maniac, the greatest criminal of all time. And since it’s mother’s day for the rest of the sane non-muslim free world, kiss your whore muslim mother’s ass and suck on where her clit used to be. How’s that for foul?

  • Tallulahdahling

    It’s not clear in the article, unless I missed something, whether any actual Muslims are involved in this complaint. It says the school has never had any complaints from the Muslim students. But it appears Banzhaf has a habit of stirring up trouble: “Banzhaf, who already has a pending lawsuit against the university over ending its policy of allowing mixed-gender dormitories and has a history of filing civil rights suits on such topics as childhood obesity and smoking, filed the complaint alleging that Muslim students are not given their own prayer rooms.”

    It doesn’t say that he’s acting on behalf of a client or clients.

  • FuerElise

    I’m in total agreement will all you said. Especially your last sentence took the words right out of my mouth. I get cross with myself that I continue to be astonishing how “Nazi” or “Hitler” or “Third Reich” is brought up by ignorant and/or lazy people in order to compare situations, and advance arguments that are totally unrelated.

  • Jane McDonnell

    Hello?! It’s a Catholic University. Don’t like it? Don’t go there and I can pretty much guarantee you will have your Mosque University to yourself also.

  • FuerElise

    Isn’t it extraordinary how most of the comments have been totally off course, being irrelevant rants against Islam and Muslims generally? Heaven knows I’m no Islamophile but I really find it pathetic how people vented their anti-Muslim spleen and failed to take note of the real culprit in this situation.

  • FuerElise

    Are you really offended by the “full length” of the burqa? I find the full face covering of the burqa far more offensive! But hey, each his own!

  • FuerElise

    It is quite obvious that you have not attended a university, Catholic or otherwise! Your rant is made quite incomprehensible by poor grammar and the absence of punctuation. I would be embarrassed to post such an illiterate comment.

  • FuerElise

    Gosh, isn’t pathetic how many times it has to be pointed out to the ignorant posters here that the complaint did not come from Muslim students from this Catholic university…nor any other, for that matter! One can’t cure stupid!

  • FuerElise

    Would you care to go back and re-read the article properly before mouthing off? Muslim students did not complain at that Catholic university…nor at any other. The complaint was made by a nutty professor from a rival university. Sheesh, if you can’t understand what this article is actually saying, why show your ignorance so freely by going off half-cocked and attack its contents?

    2 items related to your point. First, didn’t Clinton tell us the troops would be out of Bosnia by the following Christmas – yet they are still there? Second – One needs only look back to the 1940s to see what Muslims did to the people in Pakistan when they gained independence from India. Then of course, there are so many other former eastern and mid eastern non-muslim countries that have been virtually ruined by Islam.

  • Le cochon

    Islam is very similar in many ways to the deadliest microorganisms that infect humans—except for one: They are vectored into an area/culture free of their ideology, they rapidly spawn, they overtake the ability of the host to support or sustain them, and eventually are the direct cause of the death of the host. The main difference is that both them, as the pathogen, and the host do not both die, Islam survives and moves on to seek other hosts…to convert or kill for the creation of Sharia Law.

  • Lady Patriot

  • Jack Pittman

    As Always Religion is in the media again…the Christians don’t agree with the Muslim view… The Civil Liberties Union getting involved…. This is not a Universal Religion!! One God…One Faith!! That is the Christian view…we worship according to”our” faith …not Any other faith. If our Christian symbols prevent another faiths from praying to their god then they didn’t want to pray at all… They just wanted to complain, and I don’t feel another religions god cares where one prays, as long as one does…and as it is the Christian faith that our God is would feel the same in any other faith…or so it would seem!!

  • gman4567

    It’s going to eventually come down to us or them. Non-muslims don’t really grasp that they are out to take over the world and bring us back to the 10th century. We had better be ready for the war when it comes… and it’s coming soon.


    It’s not the Muslims who are at fault this time, is Banzhaf, one of America’s dirtiest and most evil lawyer.

  • sickntired

    Well…. it seems muslims all over the world don’t have a problem praying in Catholic Churches, since they have taken them and made mosques out of plenty of them. If they don’t like it… why are they even at a Catholic School??

  • Linda Woodcock

    This is absolutely wrong. Why are we letting these people dictate what to allow and what not to allow in OUR Schools! Take the prayer rug outside if you don’t like our way of doing things. My husband was raised by a Minister (his grandfather and his grandmother) but he seldom went to church! He told me one day, Linda, you do not need the church, you can pray to God anywhere, he is everywhere!!!

  • Lars Eighner

    The problem here is standing. The suit was not filed by any party that could claim to be injured. Otherwise it depends upon whether federal funds are used by the school or to pay tuition for students at the school.

  • Bookworm

    The last time I looked America was not a muslim country. It is a Western, Christian country. If you are a muslim and decide to live in America then your muslim “rights” do not apply. If you want muslim “rights” then move to a muslim country where you will be more at home.

    Who is that “OUR”? If federal funds are being use to support this school, then OUR is American taxpayers, which includes Muslims.

  • audieho

    Couldn’t agree more with you Tony. I spent a year in Bosnia and to this day I believe we were there on the wrong side. Before going in country, we had two days of briefing about our mission and the history of the country. After hearing the story about silver dollars being given to American bomber crews flying over Yugoslavia, I thought it was bizarre who we were helping.

    The crews were instructed to find a Serbian if shot down, as they would ensure their safety back to allied lines. They were to avoid Croats who had sided with the Nazis. In fact, Hitler’s own SS often complained the Croats were too cruel. The silver dollar was for the Muzzies. If you gave them money they would get you to the allied side; if not, they took you straight to the Croats who would skin you alive. And that’s who Clinton wanted us to help.

    Another interesting point, while there, I participated in the investigation of a market place bombing in Sarajevo. Speculation had been that it was Serbian perpetrators. It took about 5 days, but we identified the perps and it was even on video. The upper part of the chain decided to share this information with several news agencies, including CNN. I sat in on the briefing, so I know they were told correct information, but all of them kept reporting the bombing was done by Serbs. I guess they didn’t want to go against the Clinton narrative.

    Catholic colleges give better educations than many secular colleges. They’re more affordable than the elites like Harvard and Yale, etc. I’ve seen the results of both. I’m not saying you’re wrong about Muslims being agitators and that being another purpose for their attending Catholic colleges. That very well may be the case as well as a better education.

  • John S Bartell

    Both faith follow not the precise word of God. Shall any person desire to live with God for eternity they MUST comply to His rules for salvation. Adam and Eve disobeyed and were sent out of the garden away from the tree of life. One may never reclaim the garden by their own doctrine. Catholics announces she has changed the Ten Commandments and are proud for their accomplishment plus other blasphemies.

    “Question: Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?”

    “Answer: Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her – she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority.”8

    So the papacy is here saying that it changed Sabbath to Sunday and that virtually all churches accepted the new holy day. Thus, the papacy claims that Sunday as a holy day is the mark, or symbol, of her power and Ecclesiastical authority.”

    The complainant is a known Libtard who has a history of stirring up stuff for his own amusement. He’s going after the Catholic Church because he knows that attacking Christians is safe. He knows that neither the Pope, nor any of the subsidiary Catholic leadership is going to issue a Fatwa calling for his head.

  • sunnytruth

    You and FuerElise are incorrect in your analysis. Today, many on the left use intimidation tactics and other techniques that are surely reminiscent of yesterday’s Nazis. Clearly, the left pushes violence as a modus operandi, i.e., the loons from the Wall Street occupiers, the union thugs, and the gay fascists. Remember, the woman who wanted to burn down the Indiana pizzeria because that family made a public statement regarding their beliefs in traditional marriage. No, you guys do not want to face the unpleasant truth that today’s liberals are fascist in their thinking and hence practice an intolerance that is breath taking and eerily patterning that of the Nazis of yesterday. Read Jonah Goldberg’s NY Times best seller, Liberal Fascism. Even if you disagree with him, the evidence is clear that many gays, feminists, leftists represent a threat to free speech and free association just like the Islamo-fascists. So brining up the association to the Nazis of yesterday is not being ignorant but shows unfortunately how history repeats itself again, and again and again. I guess it is okay for the left to demonize the other side but once the shoe is on the other foot, than all of a sudden it is an issue. That is a hallmark of the fascist, liberal mind.

  • laurelladesborough

    I think that attorney bringing the lawsuit has an axe to grind…and it has nothing to do with muslims praying. There are too many occasions where attorneys are using the law to do damage to society as a whole…and not to benefit society at large, but to benefit themselves. Note that the muslim students have NOT complained! This is an outsider who is making a complaint. If I were a judge, I would call it a frivilous lawsuit.

  • Crinklecut

    It’s manipulation. Nothing better than getting a bunch of ignorant Christians and righties worked up to get a lot of clicks and bring in advertising dollars. Just read the comments. Most on here don’t even realize that it wasn’t any Muslim that filed the complaint. People, you’re being played.

    OK – its a Catholic School, my son goes to a Catholic school, but is not Catholic. He attends mass, quietly. He takes scripture. Its not that I want him to become a Catholic but he goes to a Catholic school and it does not hurt him to learn about the religion as the majority of people in the US subscribe to a christian religion. Secondly, if a catholic went to a muslim school, would they be able to demand the same?

    To quote Ron Burgundy “I don’t want to live in Rainbow land”. I hope Catholic University sticks to their guns, and their cross. The only way to combat this is to not let them get their way.

  • Joseph Newman

    I went to a catholic university some forty years ago. I am assuming there were crucifixes in the classroom. At the time being agnostic/atheistic these Catholic symbols had very little meaning for me. Perhaps that is the reason why I don’t remember whether or not there were crucifixes in the classroom. I suspect that it might be the same for Muslim or Jewish students going to a catholic university. Catholic symbols for them lack meaning and therefore are not memorable.

    In any event, a private university has the right to embrace whatever tradition it sees fit to embrace.

    The diversity of our universities and their traditions is the hallmark of our freedoms. Let us not loose sight of that.

  • Euro2000

    This has happened before – a Mexican/S.American convert to Islam and a Muslim immigrant who were attending the Trinity University claimed they were offended by the words ‘Year of our Lord’ appearing on their diploma. They lost that one.

    Similarly in the UK – a Muslim girl applies for a teaching assistance job at an Anglican/ Church of England school. During the face to face interview – she was interviewed by a man.

    She got the job! But when she came to work she was wearing a full face burqa. The school said no and a tribunal found they were within their rights.

    This case has nothing to do with common sense – this Catholic school needs to lawyer up – particularly with those experienced in Islamic lawfare – and has some understanding of the connection between Muslim sentiment and sharia law.

    The spurious suggestion of ‘racism’ or ‘intolerance’ means the well is already tainted. And the lawyer would need to understand how ‘anti-racism’ is being used to impose sharia.

    This is what Europe has been dealing with.

    More and more we are hearing – we did not want to be called ‘racists’ – ‘so I was just following orders.’ [That’s how you can have 100,000 vulnerable girls raped – by UK Muslim gangs.]

    There has been issues from Australia to UK – where Muslim students have insisted on having their own prayer rooms [even as multi-faith rooms were available] – and the ones they shared – Hindu students in particular faced harassment and sometimes blocked from entering [as Asian Muslims feel Hindus should convert].

    Worth checking out too – where head teachers in the UK were forced out by Muslim governors and parents – whenever they objected to going along with suggestions that were in line with the sharia. One headmistress, called a ‘racist’ – dismissed a suggestion that she wear only long sleeved shirts to school – was forced out of her job after a smear campaign. She took legal action and won – and the judge asked the school board why they did not act to help her – they stated they were more afraid of the anti-racism commission.


    This Catholic school should not take the matter lightly. If they can throw the cross out of one Catholic classroom – they can do it to them all.

  • Cheyenne

    It’s par for the course. As soon as Christians and republicans see the word “Muslim” in any context, they lose the few brain cells they have left.

    Cheyenne: 1) I am not your honey and 2) not only have I read the First Amendment, I can recite it:
    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    Brotherhood Objective: Global Islamic State
    Groupthink that portrays “dangerous” as “innocuous” has led to
    censorship by omission. The Muslim Brotherhood, according to the conventional
    wisdom on the left, is now a responsible Egyptian political organization that
    will compete in the first free elections Egypt has known since
    the late 1940s.

    Until now, the Muslim Brotherhood has done well under a different name and
    still managed to pull 20 percent in elections rigged to favor the deposed
    President Hosni Mubarak’s party. Now the Muslim Brotherhood plans to enter
    candidates under its own name — and straw polls indicate it may muster up to 40
    percent of the vote.

    Not to worry, say their liberal admirers in the United States and other Western
    countries. They have reformed; they are no longer religious extremists. The
    fact that they burned or trashed some 300 buildings in Cairo on Jan.
    26, 1952,
    was then and this is now.

    Like Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Muslim
    Brotherhood has camouflaged its strategic objectives in charitable social work,
    sports clubs, and prayer meetings. Its messages are also tailored to disarm its
    critics. The Muslim Brotherhood’s disinformation arsenal contains the political
    equivalent of dental laughing gas, designed to elicit lightheadedness as well
    as warm and fuzzy feelings.

    Conveniently overlooked, in what was described as the Muslim Brotherhood’s
    Western-style demand for freedom, are these inconvenient facts:

    — Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, 84, the Muslim Brotherhood’s chief theoretician,
    banned in the United States and Britain, advocate of violence against Israel as
    well as U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, returned to Egypt after a 50-year
    absence to address a million-plus crowd in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. State TV said
    it was 2 million. He also reaches tens of millions worldwide on al-Jazeera, the
    Doha-based Arab network.

    — The Muslim Brotherhood’s motto: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is
    our leader. The Koran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah
    is our highest hope.”

    — Mohammed Badie, the Muslim Brotherhood’s supreme guide, said upon his
    elevation last September, that the group’s objectives could only be attained
    “by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies
    pursue life.”

    — In 1989, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Action Front won 23 out of 80 seats
    in Jordan’s Parliament.
    King Hussein tried to check its influence by changing election laws. But in
    1993, they became the largest group in Parliament — and strongly opposed the
    Jordanian-Israeli Peace Treaty in 1994.

    — Despite a rigged vote that gave Mubarak’s followers almost 80 percent of the
    seats in the Egyptian Parliament dissolved by the new supreme military
    authority in mid-February, the Muslim Brotherhood still garnered 20 percent.

    — the Muslim Brotherhood’s official website says Jihad is Islam’s most
    important tool in a gradual takeover, beginning with the Muslim nations, moving
    on to restoring the caliphate over three continents for a conquest of the West,
    with a global Islamic state as the ultimate objective.

    — For the immediate future, the Muslim Brotherhood remains closely linked to
    Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Muslim Brotherhood’s second in
    command, Rashad al-Bayumi, said in a recent interview that the Muslim
    Brotherhood’s would join a transitional Egyptian government with one objective:
    Canceling the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel.

    — The Muslim Brotherhood’s platform says that government rule in Egypt “must be
    republican, parliamentary, constitutional and democratic in accordance with
    Islamic Shariah law that ensures liberty for all.”

    — The Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide — it has more than one — Mohammed
    Mahdi Akef said the Muslim Brotherhood opposes American democracy because
    “it is corrupt, serves the American agenda and wants to destroy the
    Islamic nation, its faith and tradition.”

    — Akef says the United States spends billions
    of dollars “and endlessly plots to change the Muslim way of life (by
    waging) war on Muslim leaders, the traditions of its faith and its ideas. They
    even wage war against female circumcision, a practice current in 36 countries,
    which has been prevalent since the time of the pharaohs.”

    — Jihad has a global strategy beyond self-defense — attack every “infidel
    rule” to widen the global caliphate until all mankind lives under the
    Islamic flag.

    For Egypt’s new government,
    whatever it turns out to be, accommodation with the Muslim Brotherhood is bound
    to be the line of least resistance. Whether 1 million or 2 million were on Cairo’s Tahrir Square to listen to
    Qaradawi in his first public appearance in Egypt in 50 years is
    irrelevant. Countless millions the world over listen to his politico-religious

    More important, the hero of Egypt’s latest revolution, Wael Ghonim, the
    Doha-based head of Google marketing in the Middle East whose Tweets and
    Facebook postings were credited with laying the groundwork for the popular
    uprising, was barred from the stage in Tahrir Square. Qaradawi’s bodyguards
    elbowed the cyber-activist to the exit ladder.

    “The Yuppie Revolution in Egypt is Over, the
    Islamist Revolution Has Begun,” captured the essence of Egypt’s 18-day
    upheaval. It was what Cornell Law School’s William A.
    Jacobson’s blog called a “Legal Insurrection.”

    The Muslim Brotherhood’s greatest asset: Gullible Westerners on both sides of
    the Atlantic.

    It was the same syndrome that enabled the same segment of Western opinion to
    applaud Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini’s moderation as he gave daily news
    conferences near Paris in 1978 while
    waiting for his religious revolutionaries and their yuppie helpers to overthrow
    the shah.

    For those with a little more memory, there is also the case of Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge,
    described for years as moderate agrarian reformers. No sooner in power than
    they established the “killing fields.” By their own reckoning, they
    slaughtered 2 million of their own people.

  • happyhomo

    And yet Catholics want to force their beliefs on the rest of the country and teach their beliefs in public schools… does nobody see anything wrong with this? You can’t complain if you are essentially doing the same thing to a school that is public to all…

  • sunnytruth

    I am not sure if I completely agree. Clearly, there are some liberals that would love to shut down dissenting views and call it “hate speech.” In fact, on many campuses, conservative voices are drowned out and intimidation and scare tactics are used to punish those who have traditional views. Calling such views as hate speech is form of fascism where individual liberty is curtailed. This is totally unacceptable and will come back to haunt us all. Instead, it would be better to have all voices articulated-even those that may make some uncomfortable. Though illegal force and violence are being used, other tactics such as ruining one economically is totally unAmerican just because someone, for example, may hold a different view over what marriage is. This cannot be allowed.

  • Cheyenne

    Well l don’t like brain-dead conservatards so I guess that makes us even. Have a nice day.

  • rinkydink

    Call me young and naive but refusing to pray in a room just because it has another religions symbol in it seems more hateful and intolerant than having the symbol in the first place.

  • SukeyMac

    This is a Catholic school and people know that before they attend the school. It’s an infringement on the rights of Catholics to even consider removing religious symbols.

    Obama is probably a reincarnate of what’s-his-name…….oh, yeah….Allah! Disgusting!!

  • MDPatriot

    What about Obama giving the Muslim Brotherhood a couple billion dollars of OUR taxpayer monies, 250 U.S. military tanks and 20, or so, U.S. military fighter jets so the Muslims could fight the Egyptian King, albeit a dictator, out of office and take over governing Egypt? Not long after the were successful in conquering Egypt, the Egyptian people did not like being ruled by the Muslims and they fought the Muslims and drove them out of their country. So, how much money did we pay into the Muslim screw-up of Egypt, which we should never have been involved in, in the first place? This is but ONE example of Obama’s professing that Muslims are the greatest! We are in trouble…………

  • MDPatriot

    Only because they support his One World Order agenda.

  • MDPatriot

    Everybody, STOP! STOP! STOP trying to defend the Islamists! They are here for one reason and one reason only……….to do their part, no matter how miniscule, to destroy the USA and take it over.

  • Deana Stacy Warner

    If these students do not care to be faced with the symbols of Catholic faith, then perhaps they should not be seeking to study in a Catholic school. There are various state colleges to which they could apply which do not have religious affiliation of any sort, unless of course the reason of their application is to tear down and demolish the strength of institution, its’ faith.

They can go home to their country, if that’s where they came from, and if they were born and raised here, let them go find a place to pray which does not have Christian symbols and/or crosses displayed in it.I don’t understand how these things are even ALLOWED to become issues here in America.

  • jeffersonpayne

    My perception is that the offense here is not by Catholics against Muslims, but by America’s official State religion, aka Liberalism, against everybody.
    The purpose of this manufactured insult is to justify using State power to strip the symbols of all other religions from public view.
    Dear Muslims, if you think the State is doing this to protect you, let me clue you in: it is just using your grievance to advance its own agenda.

  • bobwalton

    Legal principle: Volenti- (Volenti non fit iniuria) Latin: “to a willing person, injury is not done.” Common law doctrine which states that if someone willingly places themselves in a position where they know harm might result, they cannot bring a tort claim against the other party. I guess the rag-heads will have to prove they had no idea crucifixes would be ipresent at a Catholic school.

  • Helene Smith

    This is the time to start “nipping in the bud”. If those Muslims find that there are practices, such as Religious freedoms or Religious tolerance do not agree with their practices, then they should be STRONGLY urged or a better politically said to go back to their own country or whereever they came from.
    Here in the USA, Religious freedom and freedom of speech is OUR God Given Right! We also are responsible to practice religious tolerance. Thus those Muslims who are complaining, need to change their mindset and practice responsibility and religious tolerance as well. IT GOES BOTH WAYS! I am sure Allah will see things re: your New Found responsibility (practicing religious tolerance) in a much more favorable way!

  • David Boccabella

    I am A Permanent Deacon in Jerusalem, Israel. What I have noticed is that in the western world the human rights activitis are very active against the church while in the Moslim world they do not have a voice. Sure we have to analyze who is behind them? supporting them to fight the Church, especially the Catholic, in the name of human rights. Please send them my message: “Start asking for human rights for the Christians in the Arab world. Stop fighting the Church, you will not win because as Our Lord Jesus said to Peter: ““And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build
    my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18. Yes, no one will destroy it. Keep faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ. Pray for the Holy Spirit as we will celebrate Him in two weeks. God bless all those who have faith in the Lord and not in the servant (money).

So I am sorry but I think this is a case of bend to my will. Then after you do I will not bend to make the same considerations as that is equality in my eyes. Time for America to wake up and this is a good one to do so with.

    Main problem is that the Catholic schools system is publicly funded which then allows for this nonsense. One single secular public school system should be publicly funded only. Any Catholic or other religious non secular schools with private agendas should be Private schools only, and Privately funded. This should also apply to hospitals. No religious hospital or school should be funded by public funds. Separation of church and State are key to facilitating and maintaining a fair and just public system. In this way public secular institutions will not be required to provide religious space and Private Religious schools will not be required to provide religious or secular space.

  • Michael Harris

    I am not religious, but this is a catholic university. They are allowed to stick crosses wherever they so desire. Muslims (and other religions) should expect this and accept this. Grow up, have some respect and stop acting immature. I think it is more offensive to catholics than the muslims.

    John Banzhaf knows nothing about the law are he would be aware hat the first amendment says the government cannot interfere with the right to practice your religion as you see fit and that includes the Catholics of this country
    , and Banzhaf has no standing in any complaints about how the school is run, it’s a private school and he doesn’t go there and no want has asked him to intercede on their behalf!
    When these Muslims applied to go to a Catholic university knew exactly what was there and agreed to go anyway, if they have changed their mind, they need to transfer to another school!

  • phuq obama

    You people are IDIOTS. This suit was not brought by Muslims. It was brought by a stupid liberal professor from a different school. No Muslims have complained and none would because Muslims believe Jesus was a legitimate prophet in fact they believe him to be a “Great” prophet so No Muslims could claim imagery of Jesus was offensive and so far none have. You people have got to start reading the articles and put the blame where it belongs. I believe Islam is a Satanic death cult but so far the issue is not about Muslims it’s about a hateful liberal who is targeting Christians. This professor to the best of my knowledge isn’t even a Muslim himself.

  • Msw3681 sw

    NO it is not hard. His father was a muslim, so that automatically makes him a muslim, even though his mother was a Christian, and not a good one at that.

    I’m thinking the best solution would be for the Catholic institution to take down all the crosses and replace them with portraits of Mohamed.

  • phuq obama

    It’s because a liberal professor HATES Catholics and is using Muslims who have never complained about the school. The issue is NOT with Muslims it’s with a stupid liberal that doesn’t even understand that Muslims revere Jesus so they would never claim images of Jesus are offensive. You people need to start reading rather than jumping on the hate muslim bandwagon. It’s the hate liberals bandwagon you need to get your tickets for.

  • phuq obama

    The answer is NO. No Muslims have EVER complained and would never complain. They revere Jesus as a Great Prophet. This is a suit brought by a NON-Muslim liberal professor who hates Catholics.

    What the hell are muslims doing in a Catholic University? They are only there, probably for a situation just like this. Require mandatory Catholic classes in order to be eligible to remain. If it’s a private university, that should be legal.

  • Zappa

    This is the biggest bunch of hooie I’ve ever read !!

  • Will Dwyer

    It’s a Catholic school. Fuckoff Muslim assholes!!!

  • Will Dwyer

    They don’t. They just want to disrupt things till it gets so bad that the school shuts down and then build a mosque in its place.

  • Principalwilkins

    Maybe they should attend a great muslim university. Oh, wait…

  • Ron Malouin

    don’t like seeing them, do look at them….. simple

  • Barry Green

    what are Muslim doing at a Catholic school?

  • Debra Stevenson

    So are we to believe that Muslim students are actually going to Catholic University to pray? Or are evil rays penetrating across town to GWU and disturbing them? For the most protection from such a dire event, it would be best if those who are being disturbed just move to a Muslim country — lots to choose from — have a safe trip. Bye.

  • countrylove

    Why are the Muslim students in a Catholic school anyway? Go to a Muslim school if you don’t want to see Christian symbols. This is the USA – we have a Bill of Rights which guarantees freedom of religion. Don’t expect the government to give one group freedom of religion at the expense of another.

  • Ron Joy

    The best thing these Muslims can do if they find the crosses offensive in Catholic School rooms, if Keep their fuckin kids outtsa the catholic schools. It IS a CATHOLIC school NOT a Muslim ir Islamic school for goat fucker’s kids. Build your own schools and thay the hell out of ours and take you Law proffessor to hell with you scums.

  • Ron Joy

    Wondering how often you slave driving husband pimp-s you out for extra Obuma cash. How often is ‘giving head’ considered legal for you One World muslim wives?

    It’s a Catholic sxhool,if you don’t like it don’t go to the school!

  • guywb

    It’s a Catholic School, Crosses are part of the package, deal with it.

  • Greg Mitchell

    No one says they have to attend there!Go elsewhere then.Pray down on a park bench or on the bus whatever.Now do you think that a Catholic School is going to remove their crosses to suit you and your mixed up faith-NOT ON YOUR DAMN LIFE!!! Go to a non religious school or better yet get the hell out of this country as I am sure you will NEVER be happy here until we bend to your whims,No it’s not going to happen what will it take to get this through their heads??

  • Andrew Wildman

    Just seen this on my Facebook page and I cannot believe it, what the hell do they expect to find at a Catholic University, swastikas or there crescent and star plastered everywhere. If they find it so offensive why go there in the first place and what do they want to prey in the classroom for anyway they are meant to be in there to learn something, not stir the shit. We have similar problems with islam over here in the UK as well, trying to take over our country and system. By the way have you pork on the menu in that university, that will have to go !!

  • Rhonda Dowell

    Ok it is a private school which is not open to public problem solved they don’t get public funding…

  • disgusted

    I really hope the man wasting the time of the court will be required to pay the legal fees that this Catholic school must spend. Clearly, it is a Catholic school. How did he manage to pass law school when he can’t figure out the difference between a parochial school and another type.

  • Carol James

    Tell them instead of building mosque’s build a university for them in the middle of the ocean preferably would solve the problem then the others can get on with their learning in peace!!

  • derek

    Muslims play the race card in any and all situations to ensure they get their desired outcome.” Give me what I want or I will be offended and you will be a racist”.

  • rosey teo

    This totally absurd. Wasting the country money, court time. The person enrol himself or herself should know that it is catholic where all images are disply clearly upon entering the premises. If one is nothappy, shld choose another school. There is saying “in Rome, do what the Romans do”.

  • Never Play Chess with a Pigeon

    I haven’t seen anything showing that Banzhaf has any standing allowing him to sue in the first place. Will some resident of the appropriate court jurisdiction please sue Banzahf for wasting taxpayers money by filing lawsuits without proper standing? Oh, and since he’s a lawyer please notify the Bar Association of his incomprehensible behavior so the proper (disbarment) action can be taken.

  • Cathy

    And why would Catholic schools allow the mooselimbs (love that word so original) into Catholic schools knowing their reputation and what they are like as a whole? Perhaps because they would be sued by the mooselimbs? The only way they could win this is to get a good lawyer who represents them.

  • dallasplowboy

    THEN the PEOPLE need
    to take it to the next level a get to the root of his whole problem, that would
    be the Bush Crime Family and their capos Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Hank
    Paulson, Karl Rove, Rush Limbaugh, etc?

    This criminal
    organization has perpetrated MORE crime in a few decades than all the other
    Mafias put together since the early 1900’s. WHAT, cause they’re a bunch of
    White Anglo Saxon Protestants we should leave them alone? I’ll bet if they were
    Italian-Americans the FBI and news media would be on them like white on rice?
    But NO, the US government is holding on to its racist attitudes toward
    Italians, Irish and Jews.

    I have enough evidence
    on my desk to put these Con artists away for a life in a Middle Eastern
    dungeon. Wall Street and the 2 wars alone have generated a corporate crime wave
    of epic proportions. It’s INSANITY!

    I know it’s a stretch?
    but for arguments sake let’s say Americans can conveniently forget about the
    5000+ dead, 30,000+ wounded US soldiers and only GOD knows how many Iraqis and
    Afghanis. Forget that Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Rove took the good will of the world
    after 9/11 and turned it to HATE and mistrust.

    How these chicken
    hawks sent our troops into battle WITHOUT PROPER ARMOR or any clear cut plan
    beyond George W. declaring “Mission Accomplished’. Never mind military
    strategists didn’t think it was a good idea to get rid of the ONE dictator
    (Saddam Hussein) in the Middle East that had an IRON BOOT on the throat of
    fanatical Islam. Remember, the terrorist, Osama bin Lunatic, degenerates that
    caused 9/11, Bush/Cheney thought it was a good idea to put most of our
    resources in Iraq and allow Al Qaeda to escape to NUCLEAR ARMED Pakistan? Who thought
    up that retarded plan, Exxon?

    The TRILLIONS of
    dollars wasted in Iraq or the 20 BILLION dollars missing or the 175,000 weapons
    misplaced or all the arms dealers and WAR profiteers that milked our national
    treasury. FORGET about all the Constitutional VIOLATIONS, domestic spying, bold
    lying, Justice Dept. bias, Walter Reed, Abu Ghraib, soldiers getting
    electrocuted in showers due to shoddy military contractor work?

    Yeah once again,
    imagine we live in a country where almost half the population is dumber than a
    tree full of monkeys. These citizens are so damn ignorant they allowed some of
    the worst criminals in history bend them over and #*~/ them in the *** for 8
    years. Even worse these numbskulls LIKED IT so much they want MORE!

    MORE of the waste,
    fraud, abuse, lies, incompetence, scandal, fear mongering, sexual deviancy,
    corruption, off-shore tax evasion, media consolidation, arms dealing, reckless
    economics, deregulation, war profiteering, Bush/Paulson corporate welfare,
    Constitutional violations and a Corporate Crime Wave of EPIC proportions.

    FORGET ALL THAT, then the WORST thing the Bush Administration DID was NOT raise
    taxes to pay for the WARS, tax cuts for the rich and Medicare Part iDiot. You
    want to hear about Fiscal Irresponsibility GRANDE?

    Instead, Bush/Cheney
    borrowed from COMMUNIST China and Saudi Arabia (at outrageous interest rates)

    If there’s ANYONE out
    there who can explain away Bush/Cheney Administration CRIMES please reply
    because I’m NOT GETTING IT! Funny how we never heard any complaints from the
    so-called Tea Party crowd while Bush/Cheney were spending our national wealth
    like a crack HO with a credit card.

    It is a Catholic School. No one is forcing them to attend.

  • katieandcats

    If a Jewish or Catholic person filed a complaint against a Muslim university for such crap, the Jewish or Catholic person would not long be alive as the Muslim community would take the Jewish or Catholic person out – meaning that the Muslims would slit the throats of the Jewish or Catholic person who placed the complaint.
    It seems a bit weird that the Muslim students or Jewish students, or Jehovah Witness, or Morman, or Seven Day Adventists have not filed a complaint. The complaint comes from an outsider from another University. What business is it of this person to complain? Idiot is looking for fame and fortune. Judgement day before God will be interesting for this idiot. I hope I am not in the splatter pattern when God gets done with the idiot!

  • John Dunkelburg

    This is ridiculous. It’s a Catholic school….a religious school specific for Catholics to learn academics and the Catholic religion….why would go to a specific religious school of you don’t even believe in the religion or practice it? This irrates me. Don’t change the schools!…I am a devoted catholic and they are trying to stop our religous traditions.

  • Carol Soos

    Why did they choose to go to a Catholic School anyway. They knew what is there, it was no surprise. There are many non christian schools they could have gone to. They just do this to cause trouble. It is all in their plan. Infiltrate, destroy, take over. Come on America, are we not smarter than that? Unless they are willing to carry on the tradition of said school, they should not be allowed entry. That goes for anyone. No matter what their affiliation is. Play by the rules or go elsewhere. These traditions were here before they were so isn’t that like grandfathered in? Should be!! I wish everyone that doesn’t like what we do here would go home to their own country and enjoy their own traditions there. God bless America!!!

  • kbhart

    They are a bunch of crybabies. They want everyone to kiss their a–. If they do not like things are at this university then go somewhere else, hopefully out of this country!!

  • Cass Katia

    Did any of you who are so eager to bash Islam even bother to read the article?

    “Baffled Catholic University officials say they have never received a complaint from any of the schools Muslim students.”

    The problem is not with the Muslim students, but with the law professor who brought the suit, and who clearly has a history of filing ridiculous and inflammatory lawsuits like this.

  • Carol Soos

    If they think we are so good, why do they keep trying to get rid of us???

  • Cass Katia

    So if this lawsuit is allowed to go through, then I hope that the Catholic church opens up their eye’s and finally realizes something about this ideology. They only care about achieving the goal of a ‘Caliphate’, through means of entering the E.U., Australia, Canada, and the U.S. by ANY means necessary. They will reproduce by massive numbers and practice “Taqiyya” daily and never interact with Christians, Orthodox Christians, Hindus, Buddhist’s, or Jews. It is not permitted by the quran, nor is having friends or acquaintances of the Christendom nations. They will rise up in arms or with vengeance one day and they shall fail miserably when the U.S. strikes them down like we did against them on every battlefield we ever faced them on in the middle east, Afghanistan, and western Africa. If the Catholic church ends up settling out of court; I told my parents that their donations to the St Elizabeth Ann Seton is paying for this lawsuit, this garbage lawyer of the earth representing them, and these ‘aloha snackbar’ (allah snackbar) students that have no common sense. A Catholic church has no place for muslims who complain about going to a Catholic higher place of learning. WHY would any muslim attend a christian university; to while, complain, and seek a fiscal payout after they file complaints and a lawsuit? Hmm… well maybe after the Catholic Univseristy gets sued times ten, they can wake up and have every muslim student or potential student sign a waiver. Because that would be the most common sense thing to do. I’ll always remember what a British SAS soldier told me in my first two weeks in Iraq, “Mate, I am on my 5th deployment here, and I am telling you-don’t trust them one bit because they will strike you hard when you become complacent or comfortable with them”, and “use your 6th sense mate and stay vigilant.” His words resonated with me and took the smile from my face away; I am hard wired now. Especially after the radical islamist’s terrorize Israel daily, iSiS, HAMAS, Hezbollah, Boku Harram, and islamist’s in the Philippines battle in the name of “Aloha Snackbar.” They have proved that their idiology is a sickening ideology and not a peaceful religion. Thank the Lord for loving Texas, we know how to sort out filfth of the earth when they arrive here trying to stir up trouble. They won’t try it again here but they will try it in cities with strict gun enforcement laws. God bless America, our allies, and to all that accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Amen.

    Requires a swift robust response rather than pondering comments. It is a Catholic institution and should that offend or distract Muslims thenthe sensible and common sense solution is to leave. I hope any Catholic students would stand by the institution I am astounded.

    This article is not based on facts. Islam respects ALL religions (Christianity and Judaism) and the Koran does not mention anything of this sort. On the contrary, Islam recognizes Moses, Jesus, the Virgin Marry and demands that we respect Jews and Christian and treat them well as believers in God and people of faith. These kind of articles are just made to create hatred and misunderstanding against Moslems. There are a minority of fanatic ignorant Moslems who are against anything that is not Islamic, such as the likes of ISIL, Al-Qaeda and other fanatic groups. They practice the Wahabi and Hanballi thoughts which have nothing to do with Islam. It’s like saying that Rev. Jones in Guyana represented Christianity or that the Mormon faith is Christianity. One should not generalize. If one reads the Koran one will find out that it does not mention anything that relates to discrimination against other religions. Unfortunately, the fanatics in Islam are the ones getting the media attention and it reflects on all the rest of us moderate Moslems who are also suffering from their backward and violent ideology. This is not Islam.

  • Miro Jung

    Muslims have long gone to Christian schools and Catholic ones in particular, because they found them to be conservative, ie semi Victorian or Confucian in life style ie less chance of sexual relations happening between students…This life is believed to allow the students to focus and excel at their studies rather than have them lose focus and follow their teen/adolescent hormones or rebel child nature with the young ones…In the past Christians lived a Christian life students were expected to go to church…The Muslims went to church with their classmates without complaint…Some even prayed in their own ways in church. The problem with what is happening these days is to be blamed on “Christians” ie liberals and atheists with Christian ancestors. When Christians stopped keeping their religious traditions and stopped respecting their religious traditions it opened the door to others disrespecting Christianity too. “Love your neighbour as yourself.” can be read as “Respect your neighbour as yourself.” I think the current attacks on Christians and their traditions are waking Christians up to protect that which they once forgot and that is a good thing. While Christians have not been perfect ie crusades…Christianity is an ideal religion for living in a social setting as it teaches forgiveness and love of neighbour and self.

  • HobbyFlyer

  • Maria

    They knew it was a Catholic school before they started correct? If you didn’t want to see crosses all over then DON’T GO TO THAT COLLEGE!! Go to a NON JESUIT College!! So sick of this crap.. and I am so tired of CHRISTIANS being persecuted. You don’t wanna see crosses well ya know what.. I DON’T

  • canuckgirl

    This IS an Catholic school right? Have the Muslim students leave please!

  • dallasplowboy

    There would be no Catholic/Muslim issue if we, as a nation, stayed out of conflicts which aren’t our business. No one can deny that we armed Osama, whilst he was engaged with Russia? There wouldn’t be any wars if we just minded our own business.

    You were famously quoted as saying “if you break it, you own it” about the consequences of an American invasion of Iraq. So do we own it?

    Vanden Heuvel started off the segment by saying that “there is no military solution to Iraq.” Seated alongside Kristol, she launched into an attack on Kristol:

    Vanden Heuvel: Sitting next to Bill Kristol, man, I mean, the architects of catastrophe that have cost this country trillions of dollars, thousands of lives — there should be accountability…if there are no regrets for the failed assumptions that have so grievously wounded this nation…I don’t know what happened to our politics and media accountability, but we need it, Bill. Because this country should not go back to war. We don’t need armchair warriors. And if you feel so strongly, you should, with all due respect, enlist in the Iraqi army.

    Instead, sitting just a foot from him, vanden Heuvel told Kristol what we’ve all been thinking, especially of leading chickenhawks like him: that he’s one of “architects of catastrophe” who deserves “accountability,” and that what America—and by implication him and the neocons—has done to Iraq is “a crime.”

    The panel, including Matthew Dowd and Donna Brazile, was talking about presidential powers when Katrina bent the discussion:

    For example, the president should go to Congress if he’s going to take military action in Iraq…. There’s no military solution to Iraq, and I have to say, sitting next to Bill Kristol, man—I mean, the architects of catastrophe that have cost this country trillions of dollars, thousands of lives—there should be accountability.

    If there are no regrets for the failed assumptions that have grievously wounded this nation—I don’t know what happened to our politics and media accountability, but we need it, Bill, because this country should not go back to war. We don’t need armchair warriors, and if you feel so strongly, you should, with all due respect, enlist in the Iraqi Army.

    After more back and forth, Matthew Dowd, who worked for George Bush and has a son who served two tours in Iraq, in effect seconded Katrina and obliquely slammed Kristol, “We all know, everybody—most everybody knows—that this has been a colossal waste of money…and the blood of men and women of our country,” he said.

    “We don’t fix the first mistake by continuing to make a second mistake.” Anyone who’s an enlisted person, he continued, “will tell you that the only way this can be solved is you have commit troops there for 100 years. …I, for one, don’t think we should send another man or another woman, over there in a mistake that was made in the first place.”

    Catholic institutions save 10% for needy/under represented people and 10% for people of other than their own religion/public education. It’s an issue of diversity and SMU in Dallas is more Catholic, than Methodist by a large proportion.

    All I get is that you, fess up voted for Bush Jr TWICE. Enoughsaid, you ought to consider never ever voting again. Just hit yourself. Got it?

  • dallasplowboy

    The word liberal is in my vocabulary, go ahead and get
    it out my friend. Liberal means you are a partisan of liberty in its social,
    political and economic forms. If that is a disease let it spread!

    Our founding fathers were liberals in the John
    Locke vein, who prized liberty over tradition, opposed concentrated power, and
    thought we should fear our governments more than revere it. Adam Smith was a
    liberal, who understood that free trade and freedom were intertwined, and that
    while supporting steel tariffs might help you win votes in Pennsylvania, it
    distorts prices and ultimately steals from consumers to ,pick winners, rather
    than letting markets decide. John Stuart Mill was a good liberal, describing
    the threat of popular opinion as being as much a tyranny as any King on a
    throne and arguing that people should be free to engage in whatever behavior
    they wish as long as it does not harm others.

    Now I get it that you are out to bash folks who’ve
    taken the liberal tradition and remixed it in ways you don’t approve,
    but that is no reason to take down a perfectly good word and misuse it.

    I hate to see you lined up with abusing
    language. Orwell wrote about how language would be manipulated to reduce the
    ability to ever speak the truth. That is what is happening to that word.

    People misuse liberalism as a slander to attack
    what they actually practice‘s what you are doing) and others misuse it as a
    cover for statism or other types of collectivism (I think that is the disease
    you are after) but that doesn’t change the meaning of liberalism or the
    tradition it represents. Saying Americans “masses”; don’t understand this usage
    is insulting. First there are no “masses” just individuals who all have the
    means to learn what the word means and the tradition values. To give up on the
    proud tradition of liberalism and start using it as a slander is a mistake. You
    cut yourself off form the liberal tradition and make it that much harder to
    describe its values accurately to others. Don’t help build an Orwellian lexicon
    where “liberal” means something bad instead of something good. This is
    updownism. It’s a misuse of language that is beneath intelligent discourse.

    Liberalism is not ancient rhetoric, the issues
    liberals support are as pressing today in the fight for liberty around the
    world as it was when liberalism came ashore on the New World. There is
    certainly nothing conservative about fighting wars to protect human rights and
    institute democracy. Its classic liberal radicalism of the Tom Paine variety
    that believes humans weren’t born with saddles on their backs to be ridden by
    others (apologies for mixing a Paine reference and a Jeffersonian image, but it
    helps the larger point).

    From what I’ve read, you are a classical
    liberal. It’s not semantics that is the issue it’s philosophy, history, and
    ideas I care about.

    I don’t like seeing people mangle a political
    tradition, be it a socialist who believes in social liberties; but not economic
    ones, or a modern day “conservative” who too often doesn’t recognize the source
    of their own liberal beliefs, and too often sleepwalks into mixing social
    conservatism (morality politics) with a lazy attitude toward protecting
    individual liberties (like the truly Orwellian named “patriot” act).

    Milton Friedman makes clear what is wrong with
    your use of the term “liberal”, in the first chapter of Capitalism and Freedom.
    And Friedman may be ancient himself, but his explanation of classical
    liberalism is eminently relevant today. This idea that the term is archaic is
    asinine. It may not work on talk radio, but any educated person ought to know
    what liberalism actual refers to (though few actually do). As I tried to point
    out, it is eminently relevant in an age of liberal military adventurism where
    we are actively pushing back conservative regimes abroad to try and advance
    liberal values like free markets, free elections, and human rights.

    I’m with you on what is terrible about the
    Orwellian use of language, but you are doing it yourself by framing liberalism
    as a boogie man. You are trying to make white mean black and trying to blame it
    on the “masses” or mainstream usage is such a cop out. Step out of the matrix.
    Sure, you and George Will may want to conserve the nation’s liberal tradition,
    but you are no conservative in the traditional sense of the word. I know of a
    caliph or two who has a rather conservative outlook on the world, and it is
    pretty obvious you aren’t supporting his side in this global battle.

    It is too bad that people talk about politics at
    a Rush Limbaugh level and abuse language by turning liberal into a bad word. I
    don’t think it takes us very far toward understanding the world around us. John
    Kerry and George Bush agree on far more issues than they disagree on, they represent
    the left and right wing of “American liberalism” and to my mind, represent a
    sad chapter in the rather exhausted story of “American liberalism”, where
    neither is above supporting tariffs or takings when expedient or curbing
    liberty when political popular.

    But if you aspire to keep company with folks who
    read Friedman and understand what he is talking about, you need to come to
    terms with the fact that liberalism isn’t the sickness you are claiming it is.
    It’s more like the cure.

    I would like to move Liberals to a more
    classical and orthodox Liberal philosophy, something within the spirit of those
    early Republicans who strove for the abolition of slavery.

  • Ron Boutwell

    And he still misses the point entirely and goes so far off topic as to be absurd. I get that you are soooooo upset by the topic you insist on brining up. But again, it is not related to the article. It is miles off topic and you keep going even further off course. LMAO!

  • ElvisX

    This gets in front of the right liberal judge even the absurd can become reality. This is simply anti-Catholic hate dressed up in leftist “Social Justice”. The really sad part is that universities across the country are teaching our children to believe ridiculously absurd demands like this are in fact righteous demands for “Social Justice”.

    People like Professor Banzhaf are legion in our institutions of higher learning. They are and have been for years now winning the hearts and minds of our children. In the end if these views are left unchallenged and this indoctrination of our youth continues we have more to worry about than losing a frivolous lawsuit.

  • Bob

    I went to a school that had crosses in every classroom and nothing happened to me. I am Jewish. Of course Muslims don’t respect others and use democracy (that they do not have in any of the Muslim states) to destroy democracy. If they don’t like it in the US, let them leave. Good riddance!

    this muslim professor is just throwing as many lawsuits against the evil catholicism as he can think of. I wonder if he has ever set foot inside the university or is his knowledge secondhand? It is just another example how islam accepts no other religion but their own. Anyone who doesn’t share the same faith isn’t considered equal and if you are a woman, forget about equal anything. If they were in charge, no catholic could bring the same complaints about a muslim university, the lawsuit wouldn’t be taken seriously and some violent ends would be taken against any infidel who dares to insult them. This is not all muslims, I’ve met and been friends with several, but make no mistake, there are many out there, and this man is one.

    No, I didn’t say “all” anything. I get the impression your own voice is all that you pay attention to. That’s probably why you talk in circles. You also speak of “root causes” when you clearly have no idea what that term means. I’ve worked in Quality Assurance for 16 years. Root cause is my life and you clearly know nothing about it or you would not have made such an absurd statement as “root cause is always off topic”. Root cause is NEVER off topic. It is by definition at the “root” of the topic. You speak in absurdities. And you never speak about the actual topic of discussion which basically makes a discussion with you a waste of time.

    We have all allowed ourselves to be led completely off topic. Why don’t we try to return to the original topic of discussion. If some here refuse to remain on topic simply ignore their drivel. Just a suggestion.

    Again, the original topic was a bunch of self-centered muslim students who believe it is their right to demand crosses be removed from a Catholic school they chose to enroll in knowing it was a FREAKING CATHOLIC SCHOOL.

  • gdad

    Of course he hasn’t. What a dumb statement.

    I’m curious why you would claim this highlights anything at all about Islam when in act Islam has nothing to do with the lawsuit. Grow a brain.

    As for my comment, it’s further up. The guy who filed the suit is a nut and it will go nowhere at all.

  • intelligentes candida diva

    I took the post article at face value. I am opposed to sharia law. I was misled or misunderstood and take ownership of that but not the belief I hold.

That went over well, so you bring it home to degrade all people of a certain religion which isn’t to your fundamentalist liking. This fundamentalist ideology of revisionist history and their not accepting of a theory of The Origin of The Species is beyond intelligent discourse. First, I’m Catholic and thereby take offense that your charlatan attack on others religions would be rudely pontificated upon by others. Catholics, traditionally and historically reserve 10% for other faiths in their acceptance to higher education. Then too another 10% for the non parochial educated. Thereby, Pope Frank will take the matter under consideration. Go and sin no more.

I’m not defending Islam, I think it’s a cult rather than a religion. But I’m sick of all the a-holes who post comments that insult anyone who doesn’t agree with them.

    My first thought was ” Well we don’t want them to pray” I am not being uncharitable in my heart to say it. I think that is my thought. At a Roman Catholic institution it would be a violation of their rights to provide and image free space. In the Orthodox / ROman Catholic world view Mohammed is a false prophet and Islam a demonic religion. We do not want that kind of prayer in space we have consecrated to the worship of the Holy Trinity.

    If muslims are offended by the cross, it is no surprise

    1 Corinthians 1:18
    “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness: but unto s which are saved it is the power of God.”

    So, if they have not believed the good news of the Gospel, it is not a surprise that they are offended. The cross is an offensive to all who do not believe.

    I am just wondering why muslims would want to attend a Catholic School????

    Perhaps it is because it is a good school with dedicated teachers.

    I hope they will have an opportunity to also be taught how much God loves them and wants to redeem them but they will have to first hear it so that they can have faith and believe.

    Romans 10″17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

  • Juvy Olmilla

    Did he not think that it’s a Catholic school? Primary to being such and institution would be the cross and off course chapel or cathedral. Also, i guess nobody forces those non – catholic students to enroll in this Catholic school. Sometimes money just trips off the sanity and good reason of human kind.

    why? because people continue to elect left wingers into office.

I am not a deeply religious people, but there are people that are forced to make wedding cakes for homosexual couples. Even though it goes against everything they stand for. But crosses at a CATHOLIC university is a complaint? What ever happened to the right to refuse service to anyone? This country is going down the wrong road.

  • Joseph Patrick McCarthy

    however the catholic university that LET them attend has to bend their beliefs for them. What would happen at a Muslim university? Well we all know what’s happening to Iraqi Christians…..all of their belongings are taken and if they’re lucky they aren’t killed on their way out of town. It’s crazy I was in towns like Mosul. Everything we fought for over their is gone……Saddam was better sadly to say.

  • Joseph Patrick McCarthy

    why? because catholic schools provide EXCELLENT education.

    I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.

    This statement comes from the introduction to Dreams from My Father (p. xv), as part of a passage in which Barack Obama spoke of the difficulties of growing up as the child of mixed-race parents. The statement is actually a portion of a parenthetical remark Obama used to explain that people who did not know him well were often surprised to find that he himself was the child of mixed-raced parents (because he looked black, and he no longer made a point of gratuitously mentioning that his mother was white):


    I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.

    No such sentence (nor anything close to it) appears anywhere in either Dreams from My Father or The Audacity of Hope. This statement was taken from a March 2007 article about Barack Obama; they are not Obama’s own words, but rather those of the article’s author (recast in the first person):

    In reality, Obama provides a disturbing test of the best-case scenario of whether America can indeed move beyond race. He inherited his father’s penetrating intelligence; was raised mostly by his loving liberal white grandparents in multiracial, laid-back Hawaii, where America’s normal race rules never applied; and received a superb private school education. And yet, at least through age 33 when he wrote Dreams from My Father, he found solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against his mother’s race.


    Actual quote from “The Audacity of Hope” [pg. 261]: Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

    In Islamic LAW, the religion of the father is imposed upon the son. His father was SHIITE, by law, HE is shiite. Why do you think Val Jarret is kept so close? Why do you think he is selling the farm to the Iranians? HINT: They are SHIITE. Damn boy it’s a good thing that you aren’t an AG or detective or something because you’re a EPIC FAIL.

    The reality of your voting for Bush Jr TWICE is sinking in. You fail to see the missed/lost opportunity of spending trillions in attacking the wrong nation. So a defense mechanism in your brain keeps you from the mere thought of the transgressions of the American nationalism and a manifesto of superiority to a single nation bestowed from the creator. Your inability to connect the dots and see we now attack Muslims, more or less like the manner in which we blame our economic woes on illegals/undocumented workers. First business lures these illegals/undocumented workers with JOBS, not the population at large, then these are the very same business which ships you JOBS overseas. It’s no secret that the right wing Chamber of Commerce is for immigration reform. They true to their tenets, see that capital must move to its most efficient use. Labor being a part and or subset of capital too should be allowed to move to its most efficient use. Yet, they don’t write about this issue and have some absurd/preposterous article, which is a moot point and or to the asking for reasonable accommodation far from the realm of that of handicap. First, that is private property and there by exempt from reasonable accommodation would be a fitting argument, yet your using this to attack a people of faith, rather than to foster relations. Your silly argument is that we must hate and detest anything we label as and includes the Jewish people of faith. See as the author brings in the Jews? Did the Jewish object and or file the suit? Your being punked.

    “Can you imagine a law professor helping Catholic students to sue a Jewish or Muslim school to demand that the schools install crosses, remove their religious symbols, and allow the Catholics to construct a chapel on their property?” wrote Peters. “Can you imagine the argument being that Jewish and Muslims schools using their religious symbols and following their faith traditions would be described in the legal brief as “offensive”?!

    “You fail to see the missed/lost…..blah blah blah …. useless off topic blather deleted fro brevity”

    What I fail to see is why someone who claims a reasonable level of intelligence cannot argue ON TOPIC. This thread had nothing to do with Bush, Iraq or any of the other unrelated topics you have insisted on ranting about. It was about a Catholic school displaying crosses in school with Islamic students present. If you refuse to even come close to the topic – it is pointless to waste time going forward. If all you want to talk about are those other unrelated topics it would make more sense to start your own discussion thread rather than droll on and on ad nauseum in this unrelated thread.

    Umm, 32 seconds into this clip, there are those CHRISTIAN religious paintings. And at other times during the same clip. And this was a speech about the economy, not religion.

    And then there’s this from your VERY OWN link: “…President Obama as he spoke, the letters “IHS” are posted elsewhere around the hall approximately 26 times on shields representing different
    parts of the United States and the world.

    Obama did not mention the name of Jesus during his address [no reason to, of course]. However, he did mention Christ’s Sermon on the Mount. “There is a parable at the end of the Sermon on the Mount that tells a story of two men…‘the rain descended and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house…it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock,’” Obama said.

    Gosh, that would be Obama quoting from the Bible, not the Koran.

    Faulkner’s “mammy,” as he called her, was a black woman named Caroline Barr. She raised him from birth until the day he left home and was fundamental to his development. At her wake, Faulkner told the mourning crowd that it was a privilege to see her out, that she had taught him right from wrong and was loyal to his family despite having borne none of them. In later documents, Faulkner points to Barr as the impetus for his fascination with the politics of sexuality and race.

    The bending to Islamic appeasement is the single greatest threat to western freedoms. Every time Muslims are given into it emboldens them to ask for more and more.

    Petty bickering and yet you do understand the everything but the Bill of Rights and a good old Crimson Tide ass kicking. What exactly did you super dupe degree make in the way of GNP. Certainly they don’t pay you for diction? I saw a want ad for a sentence parser the other day. As soon as the masses began to read, thanks to child labor laws and compulsory education, they had to invent other means of to control the masses. So the syntax of the some bygone era is only an excuse to not face the issue. Irregardless, is a word, get over it, deal with it.

    “It’s a catchy dichotomy, but a false one. Anyone who has read an inept student paper, a bad Google translation, or an interview with George W Bush can appreciate that standards of usage are desirable in many arenas of communication. They can lubricate comprehension, reduce misunderstanding, provide a stable platform for the development of style and grace, and signal that a writer has exercised care in crafting a passage.

    But this does not mean that every pet peeve, bit of grammatical folklore, or dimly remembered lesson from Miss Thistlebottom’s classroom is worth keeping. Many prescriptive rules originated for screwball reasons, impede clear and graceful prose, and have been flouted by the best writers for centuries.”

  • dallasplowboy

    Certainly these folks are the GREAT WRITERS and you; I don’t know.

    “Like many usage controversies, the brouhaha over “like a cigarette should” is a product of grammatical ineptitude and historical ignorance. The ad’s use of “like” with a clause was not a recent corruption; the combination has been in use for 600 years. It has been used in literary works by dozens of great writers (includingWilliam Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, HG Wells and William Faulkner) and has flown beneath the radar of the purists themselves, who have inadvertently used it in their own style guides. This does not show that purists are only human and sometimes make errors; it shows that the alleged error is not an error. The RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company was confessing to the wrong crime; its slogan was perfectly grammatical. Writers are free to use either “like” or “as”, mindful only that “as” is a bit more formal, and that the Winston-tastes-good controversy became such a bloody shirt in the grammar wars that readers may mistakenly think the writer has made an error.”

    It is now generally admitted that Ali Mohamed (known in the al Qaeda camps as Abu Mohamed al Amriki — “Father Mohamed the American”) worked for the FBI, the CIA, and U.S. Special Forces. As he later confessed in court, he also aided the terrorist Ayman al-Zawahiri, a co-founder of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, and by then an aide to bin Laden, when he visited America to raise money.

    The 9/11 Report mentioned him, and said that the plotters against the U.S. Embassy in Kenya were “led” (their word) by Ali Mohamed.

    Our constitution states the congress holds the purse strings. So this Obama giving is political propaganda.

    “A number of the groups and individuals directly involved in the revolts and reforms sweeping the region, including the April 6 Youth Movement in Egypt, the Bahrain Center for Human Rights and grass-roots activists like Entsar Qadhi, a youth leader in Yemen, received training and financing from groups like the International Republican Institute, theNational Democratic Institute and Freedom House, a nonprofit human rights organization based in Washington, according to interviews in recent weeks and American diplomatic cables obtained by WikiLeaks.”

    “The Republican and Democratic institutes are loosely affiliated with the Republican and Democratic Parties. They were created by Congress and are financed through the National Endowment for Democracy, which was set up in 1983 to channel grants for promoting democracy in developing nations. The National Endowment receives about $100 million annually from Congress. Freedom House also gets the bulk of its money from the American government, mainly from the State Department.”

    They should simply send a general letter out to “everyone” saying no matter what religion you are, if you are “offended” by crosses, please feel free to withdraw, quit your job, etc..etc…Going to a Catholic school means seeing lots of Catholic stuff all over the place. You’re paying for an education or to do a job. If you don’t want to do it “Catholicly” regardless of your religion, get the fukk out.

    Up is down and Down is up. What nut cases are even allowing this illogical reasoning go forth?

  • Kelly Clover

    Muslims are taught from early childhood that they should harbor a venomous hatred against all Jews and all Christians. Muslims are taught from early childhood that they have been commanded by a supreme being to exterminate all non-Muslims as well as all so-called fake Muslims. Who is the author of the Quran? It’s Satan the Devil. Only he would teach people in scriptures that the slaughter of huge numbers of perfectly innocent people is justified. Only he would teach people thru scriptures that men are to beat up their wives.

  • Patricia

    Try going to a mosgue and complaining about the lack of crosses impeding your ability to pray.

  • ShirleyMG

    Why would the Muslim students enroll in the first place if these crosses offended them? Why would their parents have let them enroll? If the students were okay with this then why is it anybody else’s business. Based on all the other lawsuits GWU Law School Professor John Banzhaf has filed it is fairly obvious that he is, in my opinion, either a total whack job nut case or a left-wing progressive (read Communist). But then, I repeat myself. I would be more concerned about letting my child go to GWU!

    Zuhair, The Religion of Islam is CANCER, wake up America and Europe, There are Thousands of verses in Qur’an to Kill and Cut the Heads of the non believers in Islam. They Translate Qur’an to Holly Qur’an to match it with the Holly Bible, it is wrong translation and they are getting away with it so are in many other things in the west because of no knowledge about Islam in the west. the Real Translation of Qur’an Kereem is the Generous Qur’an. I know the language and I know what criminal verses there is in it.

    The docility of the US is beginning to pay dividends to its enemies. They are bullies, and stand unchallenged.

    “Can you imagine a law professor helping Catholic students to sue a Jewish or Muslim school to demand that the schools install crosses, remove their religious symbols, and allow the Catholics to construct a chapel on their property?” wrote Peters.

    No, actually I cannot, because only the US would contemplate putting up with this absurd sort of bullying.
    Why? There is no way to explain the bazaar events taking place without comprehending biblical prophecy; and the worldwide depravity that is setting up the red carpet for the anti-Christ. Only then does it all make perfect sense.
    The Islamic sweep, is a foreshadowing of how the anti-Christ will stroll right into the lives of those who have the misfortune to still be here when he makes his spiritually hideous appearance. Satan is legally having his day due to the wholesale abandonment of God across the world. Yet it’s not the job of the remaining remnant of true believers to fix this world — just makes sure we do our part in the salvation process.

    The Separation Of Church And Hate:

    There is a good reason why Church and State must always remain separate. Let’s get something straight, right from the start: A theocratic state is not a free state, and never will be. I’m sure it was never Jesus’ intention nor His will, that anyone should be dominated in His name, the name of Christ. That is the will of men. To be accurate, the concept in itself is anti-Christian. You can only follow Christ by choice, not by legislation.

    It seems some people are more intent on casting stones at perceived sinners than propagating the love of Christ. ~ “Above all else, I command you love one another”. ~ This was the message that Jesus preached, and as far as I can see, the worth of a soul will only be measured as such. But I can assure you of one thing, when your time of judgment comes, you won’t be asked to recite scripture, but rather, if anything, the question will be; did you get the message and live by it?

    For all of you people out there on the religious right, you should try to remember that looking for sins to condemn, and people to persecute in the name of God, is simply Satan’s way of keeping you from seeing what is good and praiseworthy. It’s Satan’s favorite means of deceit; getting people to hate and kill each other in the name of God and Jesus, twisting scripture to incite hatred and division.

    Understand this; that by doing so, you are defaming the name of Christ, associating Jesus with bigotry and hate. Jesus was never cursed with these feelings, these sins that you commit in His name. It’s widely agreed that He rose above it all, and to use His name for the justification of spreading contempt and hatred for anyone is true heresy. It isn’t Pro-Christ by any means, but clearly Anti-Christ.

  • G. W. Markle

    The Christian Dilemma:

    The greatest threat to America, and indeed to the rest of world, at this point in history, comes from the staunch advocates of right wing ideology, and I must submit this warning to you: There is a grave problem with the right wing movement, in that; they seem to possess a distorted sense of entitlement. They’ve set themselves apart, and seem to think that their faith gives them the right to view the world from a platitude of conceit, through condescending eyes, and with a false sense of superiority. They actually believe themselves to be superior beings, with a manifest destiny and some strange notion that God is on their side. A people with a desire to conquer, under the false guise of Christianity, seeking to dominate in the name of Christ, their view of humanity being reduced to nothing more than a matter of “us” and “them”.

    What they fail to realize is; if the Christ you believe in leads you to view other humans as lesser beings, then you are a follower of the anti-Christ. The plain truth is; God doesn’t have a religion and God doesn’t discriminate. Any religion that professes to be the only true religion,or that they‘re special in the eyes of God preaches false doctrine. If the Spirit of God is truly with you, it will only be known by acts of “unconditional” love and charity. No religion can claim exclusive rights to God. He belongs to all that He has created, and to foster a belief in “us” and“them” is to divide humanity, not unite it.

    And so it will be, in The End, that those who have set themselves apart from their fellow man will find that they have set themselves apart from God. The worth of a soul will only be measured by how much it has loved, nothing more, nothing less. Woe to those who have taken the widow’s mite and built castles and empires in His name. They have incurred a great accountability, their suffering will be unending.

    Even Jesus will not claim to be Christian, but will only proclaim the glory of the Father. And when He returns they will shout: “Here we are Lord!” And He will respond: “I never knew you”. They have forsaken the Word and have become prisoners of the Numbers.

    Those who have put themselves first will be last.

  • BlueViolets

    Odd. Because I find it rather offensive that a muslum would even want to attend a Catholic school. If they are so offended they really should have taken a tour before enrolling so they could avoid coming in eye contact with the ‘offensive’ crosses. But then that does require some common sense and a pinch of intelligence. Neither of which they most obviously possess. Then again they probably only attended in order to start trouble and not learn.

    Well I guess my first question would be, why are they in a Catholic School???? Do they honestly “believe” that they are so “entitled” that they have to power to take something away that has been part of our American lifestyle for “God” knows how long??? Would we enroll our children in a Muslim school,,not on our worst day…Americans religious beliefs do not coincide with Islamic NO we would not have our children attending a Muslim school nor would we find their signs of their religion offensive and demand they be removed, because we know our heads would be removed before they would change anything that offended us….I don’t shop at Sam’s Club…I find it very highly overrated and I hate the mass confusion….does that give me the right to protest or file a lawsuit against Sam’s…absolutely not….the long and the short of it is…I don’t shop at Sam’s Club.
    The cross has been a symbol of Christian religions for more years than I care to remember, just like the Star of David for the Jewish faith….does either the cross or the star offend me and stop me from praying, do they interfere with my prayer time…another NO….all of these complaints by Muslims are bizarre and I don’t feel they are worthy of the court time they are given to hear their ludicrous complaints…..If you don’t like the Cross, do not send your children to a school where the Cross is a sign of their religion…..better yet, teach your children not to be STUPID…multi tasking is a wonderful tool to use to learn……

  • Sinnie Kemp

    We can allow the Muslims to dictate what we can do or not do. If they don’t like it then go to the country where there were no crosses.

  • mary ellen

    If you are offended, go to a different school, teach somewhere else, don’t attend anything at Catholic U. It is CATHOLIC and it is that simple. Does anyone believe that in a Muslim country, they would remove signs and symbols so that Christians would not be offended? This is nonsense, and I mean nonsense – not making any sense. These Muslims and Atheist who think they have rights to destroy our rights offend me. So should we have them removed? Just wondering.

THEY MUST CONFORM TO OUR WAY OF LIFE HERE IN THE UNITED STATES OR GO BACK TO WHERE THEY ORIGINATE FROM! THIS MATTER SHOULDN’T EVEN BE BROUGHT UP FOR DISCUSSION OR BROUGHT TO A COURT!

    This is just more Satanism. Beliefnet, Foxnews, and other tools of Satan are using baloney issues and lies like this one to make you angry, and cause you to hate. Beware the work if Satan, he makes you hate. I look below, I see hate of many stupid people blaming ‘Obama’ for their own foolishness. You are already in Satan’s net. You are warned. Open your eyes. Satan is hate and lies. You follow this article, he already has you. Enjoy your lake of brimfire and smoke. You earned it.

  • Gerald James

    Not that I would want to do so but let’s say I want to attend a Mosque to study and I want to pray in accordance with my Christian Beliefs. Can I force the Mosque to provide me with a special place that is void of any reference to Islam? Obviously, the Muslims would not stand for this and so folks, the answer on this issue is, NO, the Catholic School should not have to cater to Muslim Demands.

  • Rik Magee

    NOTICE to MUSLIMS ! You’re guests in OUR COUNTRY! Assimilate or go back to the sand hills you emanated from. We live quite well without your fanatic Cultism you call Islam. Do we have to teach y’all another Crusadic lesson?

  • Skip Willson

    you’re a Catholic school not a Muslum school if you Muslum add a problem problem with America they should go back home see how safe you are there and complain about Muslims cutting off Christians heads Christians aren’t cutting Muslims heads off but we’re being persecuted from Muslim and our Muslim sforget what country you are in were not in Afghanistan or R your lovely people are cutting heads off Christian heads why don’t you complain about that if you want to complain about or is that the problem..the sad part is our government want to change this country for mooz-lum or banish because they don’t like America / Obama and his other half can’t even stand seeing her name she hates America more than he does

  • Rik Magee

    He openly bragged of siding with the MUSLIMS! Yet ignorant people elected him lawfully or not. Mostly because he being a wannabe, claimed he was black. Before Obama we had Bob Hope and Johnny Cash. Now we have No HOPE or CASH !

  • leewacker

    As usual, the faux president spoke with a forked tongue! He has NO intention of helping the Coptic Christians, nor does he have any intention of NOT doing his best to turn this nation into an Islamic Caliphate with him at the helm! Hope he has a very bad end (which is coming anyway!)

  • boBNunny

    So I guess they’d be OK if a Priest when to a Mosque and had a Catholic service? Wake up people! This is the intention. Work our own system against us. They enrolled VOLUNTARILY. If they don’t like it, they can go to a Muslim school. You do not have a RIGHT to go to a Private school.

  • Conrad

    Muhammad never existed. There is no history. Like all great lies we buy into the basic principles establish credibility. There is no GLBTQ+++ DNA . They are plain o’l Man Woman like everyone else. The Crusades were defensive not offensive like if Islam conquers America and we try to get it back. Islam is a terror organization and not a religion.

  • Betty Bryant

    This is the most ridiculous and frivolous lawsuit I have ever heard of. If this is allowed to go forward, then our justice system is truly broken and needs fixing. Nobody forces these Muslim students to attend a “Catholic” university. They are there of their own free will and should choose another school if they have a problem with the crosses.

  • trexler

    They should not be allowed in our country if they cannot live in our society and get along with others of different faiths.they cannot tolerate schism in their own faith.they should not be able to come here.its partly the schools fault allowing them in only for tuition money

  • rrkeng

    Why do these people want to come here and want to change our liberties? It is a Catholic school, surely you knew this when you signed up. I never got special privileges when I was in school like being able to pray at a special time or wash my feet even after running track. If you are offended by our ways then go back to a Muslim country, Please.

  • SapientHetero

    Muslims at a Catholic university are offensive. They should be banned from campus.

  • gnafuasusual

    This question over and over again: what are Muslims doing in a Catholic school? Muslims should be in their own country if they want their laws and beliefs, not here on American soil! I think we know the answer because it is so written in their “curan”!

  • Rosie46

    They can leave anytime if they don’t like it — actually, please leave and take your offensive burkahs, sharia law and vows to kill all infidels with you. We don’t care if you are offended by crosses in a Catholic University — did you know it was Catholic when you enrolled? Deal with it or leave.

  • djww

    This professor will get nowhere with his argument. What a vile idiot he is.


    The school is Catholic for God’s sake.. If they don’t like it they can go somewhere else. Why would they apply to a school they will not appreciate? These people are lunatics. They should be kicked out of the school.

  • Bill_Randal

    POOR BABIES!!!!! Crescent Moons with holes in them, so a star may shine through offend ME. It’s a physical impossibility. As do the guys with beards and turbans and the women all covered up in 100 degree heat. If yo don;t like it GO BACK WHERE YOU BELONG!!!!! (And it AIN’T HERE!!!) China has the right idea. They are REMOVING Islam and Islamists from their shores! We need to do the same, before they and their so-called ‘Law’ have us all in prison or DEAD.

  • Bill_Randal

    They are TOLD to apply to the religious schools so they can work OUR OWN LAWS against us. ACLU, and the like will bring suit, and MAY JUST find a Muslim ‘judge’ who will order the REMOVAL of the Crosses and other references to any BUT ‘allah’


    I have often wondered…if Muslims were not required to pray five times a day, would they still pray?

  • Thomas L. Stafford

    It is a private school. Those attending knew it was a Catholic School when they signed up.
    How much room does it take to pray anyway? Christ said something like: Go to an upper room where no one can see you to pray.

  • joespenthouse

    muslims are a bunch of hate filled communist, who have nothing better to do then complain about how bad things are here, and how their offended by this and that. I for one am sick of their senseless and unwarranted complaints. We have never had a problem in this country, until the Rag headed bastards came to this country, with the intention of wiping out American citizens. Thanks to the bastard Barry obuma they now think they can come in and do whatever the hell they please, well you Ahlallipop praying cry babies get on a plane with a one way ticket and get the hell back to the hole you came from, and don’t forget your koran that is filled with murderous prayers.
    These bastards are just doing this to cause trouble, their hatred for Americans go’s way back from Christian dominated societies who also kicked them out as China is doing right now, the quicker we get rid of Ovomit, the sooner we get our country back.

  • Marie Doyle

    I said it before and I’ll say it again – if the Muslims do not like the traditions – the morality and the decor of the University……LEAVE – DO NOT ATTEND THERE – GO TO A MUSLIM COUNTRY AND A MUSLIM SCHOOL. Basicly – LIKE IT OR GO ELSEWHERE.

  • joespenthouse

    Screw your morning prayer, and kiss my azz, while your at it take that sorry bastard Ovomit with you, he is the cause for every problem that exist here in America. The koran sucks and so do you.

    I think the Catholic school should not allow Muslim students. Solves the Muslim’s problems. Let the Muslim students go to private Muslim Schools — kinda like all the Muslim Hospitals that we have seen built!! Really getting tired of this religious order (for lack of a better word) and their “demands”. Head on back to the Middle East.

  • protectionistt

    It states in the article that Banzhaf’s George Washington Univ. is a “rival” school across town. Maybe GWU is fighting declining enrollments ? Maybe they see CUA as taking students away from them. Maybe this Banzhaf loon is just trying to put CUA out of business, so HIS school can pick up CUA students.

  • christian free speech advocate

    They did it with the 10 commandments, and prayer in schools.

    This is called freedom OF religion in America!!!! NOT freedom from it!!! Our Christian fore fathers of the United States founded our country on it and the BIBLE!!!

    Every time they see a cross, the Muslims should remember their Islam brothers slaughtering all of the Christians around the world!! How evil and demonic their religion is, straight from the pit of hell!!!

    Jesus died on the cross and was crucified because he loves us!!! The true and living God of love, mercy and peace!!!

    Islam is an evil, hateful, destructive false god and religion!! Inspired by satan and his demons!!

    They murder, torture, decapitate, set on fire, brutalize women, children, elderly and men! Who would ever want to serve a false god that teaches that? Only the sick minded would!!!

  • paysme

    How can a cross be offensive at a Catholic school? It is a catholic school, right? The cross is central to the Catholic faith and is worm by most Catholics where ever they go. I think it is the highest from of insults to go into a Catholic institution, church, school etc. and request the removal of the cross.

    That is like coming into someone’s home and telling them what to do, because it is offensive, this has to stop. Muslims seem to take pleasure in offending everyone they come across and making unrealistic demands. The government and politicians are weak in the knees and bow and scrape to those who fail to understand where they are now living. They need to abide by the current practices, end of story. Muslims are not the only ones who have rights or get offended. This story I would guess has offended a lot of people to even think this is a possible consideration.

    Whom do these Muslims think they are kidding. That would mean all stars and crescents in Muslim institutions should be removed then, right?

    I would venture to say Muslims would put up a stink about that. I think that Muslims would be happier in their own institutions, so why not go there where they will not be offended and can pray where they like.

  • boocat

    My favorite part of the Notre Dame appearance was that the school officials actually covered the cross, and for a president who claims to be a Christian. I couldn’t believe they did it. Big mistake, very stupid of them.

    a 20-year trend of irrationalism, marked by an increasingly
    totalitarian approach to highly politicized issues. Students are
    subjected to mandatory gender and racial-sensitivity, (diversity),
    training akin to thought reform. Faculty members and administrators

    increasingly like fearful faculty puppets.” There has been a total
    downsizing in academic standards; to make way for unqualified

    What Muslims call “tolerance,” others correctly identify as institutionalized discrimination. The consignment of Jews and Christians to dhimmis under Islamic rule means that they are not allowed the same religious rights and freedoms as Muslims. They cannot share their faith, for example, or build houses of worship without permission.

    There are about 500 verses in the Quran that speak of Allah’s hatred for non-Muslims and the punishment that he has prepared for their unbelief. There is also a tiny handful that say otherwise, but these are mostly earlier verses that many scholars consider to be abrogated by the later, more violent ones.

    Quran (9:73) – “O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be unyielding to them; and their abode is hell, and evil is the destination.”

And, yes, I have looked into these allegations that Obama is a Muslim Marxist from Kenya, etc., etc. and have found no truth in any of them. And, no, I am not a liberal. I am a devout orthodox Anglican Christian who is a political Independent. I have also been a professional investigative journalist since 1977, so I know how to find, and tell, the truth.

    That’s all they needed to satisfy their hate. Why bother reading any further? These right-wing fanatics prove their ignorance EVERY time they make ANY point.

    They do not have to attend just as they dio not have to attend a Catholic Church…so where’s their beef! Please!

    I’ve seen this video before and I’ve also seen it totally debunked. All you have to do is see the quotes unedited and in context to know that you are promoting a total lie with this video AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT YOU’RE TRYING TO PROVE.

    Yes he is!!! And so far everything he has said has been just the opposite!! So much for his transparency!!!

    I’m atheist, so I despise all religions equally, and I have grown very weary of religion ‘X’ saying I have a ‘right’ to…. No, actually you don’t. To be quite blunt, I would tell these muslim students to go piss up a rope. It’s a catholic school, what did they expect when they enrolled?

    You can’t point out anything to ignorant haters. Their hate totally cancels out any rationality.

    HAHAHAHA! You’re so ignorant that you’re trying to use his avatar name against him. Read it and weep, moron!

    Nicodemus (/ˌnɪkəˈdiːməs/; Greek: Νικόδημος) is a Pharisee and a member of the Sanhedrin mentioned in the Gospel of John, most notable for assisting in the burial of Jesus. He is venerated as a Christian saint. Nicodemus appears three times in the Gospel of John.

    He didn’t march in anything. He said he was born then. He was an infant in a baby carriage or backpack. He doesn’t have a clue.

    “And voting for someone just because of his color…….”
    You right-wing morons just love to think that people voted for Obama because of his color. Here’s a major fact for you. MOST of the people that voted for Obama would have voted for Hillary if she were the presidential candidate. I voted for him twice and his color had ZERO, NADA, NOTHING to do with it. On the other hand, I know some people that voted AGAINST him because he’s black. Wouldn’t be surprised if you’re one of them.
    Oh, and I’m older than you.

    He was in a baby carriage. He only knows about it because his parents told him years later.

    It’s really sad to say, but you’re truly an idiot.
