John F. Banzhaf III is claiming that the Catholic University of America has violated their Muslim students “Human Rights” (whatever status that has in a court of law anyway) by not giving them access to a room to pray in that is free of crosses and other items associated with Christianity.  My first response to this story is that we have a group of troublemakers that applied to the school just so they could turn around and sue them.  This is a standard policy for Leftists.  However, I was wrong.  Apparently the students don’t have a problem with it at all.  So that just means that John F. Banzhaf III is a moron.

The Catholic school is being nice and allowing people of other faiths to attend.  They don’t have to do this.  Even if they had to let the students attend (I won’t argue the first point).  The Catholic school is allowing the Muslims to pray.  The charge is that the students will feel uncomfortable praying in the presence of Christian symbols.  This is just moronic.  You have the right to dye your hair purple and paint your face green.  You have no right to expect people not to laugh at you.  No one is allowed to stop anyone from praying.  However, as a prayor, you have no right to demand people shut up or whatever while you pray.  It’d be nice if they did, but them talking does not violate your rights to prayer.

I wonder how this professor comes down on school prayer?  I have a feeling this is just an atheist attacking Christianity.  No more, no less.
