Atheist Demands Catholic Imagery be Removed from Catholic School… Because of Islam.

Once again, those evil Catholics are up to no good. At least that’s what one George Washington University Professor wants you to believe. Washington DC’s Catholic University of America is facing a complaint for hanging crosses in their classrooms[1], and having a cathedral on their campus. Apparently, such Christian displays have the potential to offend Muslim students. (Thank goodness there’s a liberal George Washington University Professor here to save everyone from Christian imagery. Right?)


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.

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.”

Wow… Crosses and a cathedral at a Catholic university? Good lord, do those oppressive Catholics know no bounds? How long will the suffering last? I’m willing to bet they even hold mass in that cathedral (Gasp!!)…

</Sarcasm Font End>

So some guy is worked up because a Catholic university exposes students to peripheral displays of the Christian faith… Heck, maybe the complaint should include the University’s name. After all, I’m sure someone might be offended that Catholics are running a university.

What is it about the First Amendment that makes liberals so zealous about censorship?
