Catholic University has been accused of violating the human rights of Muslim students by not allowing them to form a Muslim student group and by not providing them rooms without Christian symbols for their daily prayers, according to a complaint filed with the Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights.
The 60-page complaint said Muslim students must perform their prayers surrounded by symbols of Catholicism e.g., a wooden crucifix, paintings of Jesus, pictures of priests and theologians which many Muslim students find inappropriate.
Patrick Reilly, the president of the Cardinal Newman Society, an organization that promotes Catholic identity among Catholic schools, seemed stunned by the complaint.
I dont know what the attorney wants them to do if he wants them to actually move the Basilica or if the Muslim students can find someplace where they dont have to look at it, he told Fox News. Catholic University, he said, is a Catholic institution.

Words fail me.
People in Hell want Sparkletts.
OK ... there are no Crosses in the Latrines or the Broom Closets.
Why in hell would muzloid students attend a CATHOLIC university if not to just cause trouble?
I say SCREW ‘EM!
Muslims, may pigs be upon them.
Uh...it’s called Catholic University. I would assume they kind of stress being Catholic. If you have a problem with that, I think you’re at the wrong university.
TOO STUNNED TO SPEAK.
As long as they sense weakness, they’ll keep pushing the envelope.
Knowing the Catholic mindset, they'll accommodate the Muslim students. The Catholic Church is afraid of our government and will do almost anything to keep the status quo.
It's too bad they don't investigate Glenn Beck's appeal to Christian churches to call the government's bluff.
I can see this will be a no win. The official religion and official language of America is “NONE”. Thus a religion/belief may be different, but their right to worship will not be denied. A Plain Chapel can be used by many religions, bring your own icons for the service. The house of God is everyone’s house. I knew of a GI who prayed in a Shinto Temple during post WW II, and treated it like it was his hometown church.
AMERICANS FOR A MUSLIM FREE AMERICA.
WE LEARNED ALL WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ISLAM ON 9/11
Exactly - they knew full well what they were doing.
Can’t they pray on a sidewalk? That is what happens when a mosque overflows.
Can they pray in yard there?
I agree, they will keep pushing the envelope.
One of these days we’re just gonna have to push BACK!
They want to go there because it's safe. Period. How long will it take after more and more of them come will it no longer be safe. They always want to visit the peaceful places or neighborhoods until their ilk move there. Then it is no longer crime free. The cycle has to stop.
The Islamobastards just keep pushing.
I say it is way past time for us to start pushing back.
