University of Chicago (UC) administrators permanently removed pews from an 88-year old chapel on campus in order to accommodate Islamic prayers, according to a local news report.
Chicago NPR affiliate, WBEZ news, reported on May 23, the pews, which are now part of display at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Chicago, were removed in order to provide Muslim students a place to pray.
Literature describing the artwork that was created by UC Director of Arts and Public Life Theaster Gates, also describes the removal of the pews as symbol of religious tolerance.
The pews were recently removed from the chapel in order to offer Muslim students a place to pray, a symbolic gesture of religious tolerance,

Just don’t try to put pews in a mosque whatever you do.
By that logic Mooselimbs shooting up Buddha statues must also be seen as some sort or Kum-by-yah celebration of tolerance.
You got it.
I guess Obama’s cover is almost up.
The low info voters will follow him to the chopping bloc it seems.
He’s what many have said. Time for the goods on him to fall.
Based on info & belief, now that the chapel is a mosk, it belongs to the ummah in perpetuity.
Will the Shariah Zoning Commission rule in favor of regular Friday “prayers” or the annual Good Friday service?
The University of Chicago used to be a Baptist school. I guess the university has lost its way.
That was precisely the point I was about to make - the university now has a permanent mosque.
Pew is another word for "stinky flatulence."
Setting up Satan in The House of The Lord is a sure way to Hell.
doesn’t an abominaqtion take place i nthe end times where the beast violates the church?
It is terribly disrespectful to post pictures of Satan worshippers bending down and farting at God.
Screw them. Islam is not a religion no more than communism, or marxism or such. A religion by nature should improve you individually and your relationship with other humans. This philosophy is based on hate for your fellow man and woman.
Follow the money ...
Students from Oil-rich Islamic countries pay full boat costs and their governments frequently give large sums for the creation of Islamic study courses. Thus the administrations of many colleges and universities have no problem falling over and spreading their legs.
For myself, it is only toleration if it is a two-way give and take. Right now, it seems we only give and they cheerfully take. This is not a good thing.
All the pews or just a couple of rows.
Not only have the Islamic beasts violated this particular church, but their teachings hold that once a space is worshipped in by muzzies, that becomes sacred Islamic property forever.
...but their teachings hold that once a space is worshipped in by muzzies, that becomes sacred Islamic property forever.
The muslims are still pissed about losing Europe a few centuries ago.
Good, let them simmer in their own juices.
In Spain, muzzies are not only simmering but boiling over since the Iberian peninsula was for centuries under Moorish occupation. To muzzies, all of Spain (al-Andaluz to them) is stolen property but they are focusing their irredentist ambitions on the Cathedral of Cordoba which was once a mosque.
There have been several violent attempts by muzzies to occupy the cathedral and the church is now under full time police oversight. Spain’s muzzie problem does not get the same amount of attention as that in U.K. or France, but there are far more malevolent forces at work.
Spain belongs to Islam and the muzzies want it back. Right now.
The preferred position of little boys for the Muslim believer.
Its where my conservative congressman went to school. I think he might even have been Dean at one point.
The pews were recently removed from the chapel in order to offer Muslim students a place to pray, a symbolic gesture of religious tolerance, - craven cowardice!
Islam accepts no “tolerance” by other faiths/members of said faiths.
Islam is committed to destruction of all other faiths and imposition of a One World Islamic government based upon Sharia law.
They also have to have a small substructure that points to Mecca. I forget what it is called but the whole mosque has to be situated so that this *altar* which it isn’t, has to be oriented toward Mecca. How are they going to handle that?
You know, the federal government seems to be moving in the direction of promoting one religion over another, doesn’t it?
