    Attorney: Crosses at Catholic University violate human rights of Muslim students

    Attorney: Crosses at Catholic University violate human rights of Muslim students | syracuse.com

    It seems that muslim students that went out of their way to go to a Catholic college (private), are now demanding the Catholic college put away symbols of their faith to make a place for muslims to pray without being distracted by Christian symbols.

    Freedom of religion is being threatened here.
    The muslims did not need to attend this college, they did it voluntarily. They are not satisfied to pray in their room, adorned to their tastes. They want an area for students to be committed to islam prayer in a Catholic college.

    They are claiming that "other" colleges give them their own prayer space, and they want the "Catholic" private college to do the same thing.
    Like you said, outside would be good. Their own rooms could be used, but they want to "leave their mark" at the college.

    Why are Muslims so intolerant of the rights of others?

    They need to be booted out. They can go elsewhere.

    If we could get them to answer that, it would be the beginning of a solution!

    Yes, it is not like they did not do the research. They chose a Catholic college (probably because it offered "quality" education), and once they are there, want the college to change for them? If you choose something for quality, why would you want it to drop standards?

    How many threads do we need on this topic?

    this is a non issue unless the university gets tax dollars.
