Muslims in our lands are becoming too demanding now that they literally wanted our faith to be out of their ways. If they can use our Democratic laws to press for their "human rights" they would do so. I may not be living a hundred years but I am afraid they are testing the waters now. They are up for the Islamization of our lands "Thanks to your democratic laws, we will invade you. Thanks to our religious laws, we will dominate you" says one Muslim leader to a Catholic Bishop. They start to demand for something and soon once they are a majority, they will demand Sharia (Islamic Law) within our system. These demands are NEVER enjoyed by non-Muslims in Islamic states! They DO NOT know how to reciprocate their own demands.
This is a "CATHOLIC UNIVERSITY". They should KNOW that before they enroll. They are free to enroll somewhere but not in our universities.
Who is afraid of the Cross? Only those anti-Catholics. Islam and many protestant churches particularly the INC of Manalo who says the cross is the "mark of the beast" will hate the Cross of Christ. -CD2002

Muslim students at the renowned Catholic University have complained their human rights have been violated by the college.
They have accused education chiefs of banning them from forming a Muslim student group and failing to provide prayer rooms without Christian symbols.
The Office of Human Rights is investigating 60 pages of allegations against the private university in Washington DC.

The students claim they are surrounded by 'a wooden crucifix, paintings of Jesus, pictures of priests and theologians which many Muslim students find inappropriate.'
The complaint, launched by John Banzhaf, an attorney and professor at George Washington University Law School, also claimed female students were being discriminated against.
Banzhaf has been involved in a previous case against the school involving same-sex residence halls. The latest investigation could take six months to complete.
He claimed some Muslim students were particularly offended because they had to meditate overlooked by the cathedral that looms over the entire campus – the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
He told Fox News: “It shouldn’t be too difficult to set aside a small room where Muslims can pray without having to stare up and be looked down upon by a cross of Jesus.
“They do have to pray five times a day and to be sitting there trying to do Muslim prayers with a big cross looking down or a picture of Jesus or a picture of the Pope is not very conductive to their religion.'
A spokesman for the university claimed they had not received any complaint from the students.
Victor Nakas, associate vice president for public affairs, told the TV station that its Catholic traditions meant it welcomed students from other faiths.
No students had registered complaints about the exercise of their religions on the campus, he said.

In a 2010, university president John Garvey admitted they do not set aside prayer rooms for Muslim students.
He said: “We make classrooms available, or our chapels are places where they can pray.
'We don’t offer Halal meat, although there are always meals that conform to Halal regulations, that allow students to do what they want.'
Patrick Reilly, president of the Cardinal Newman Society, an organization which promotes Catholic identity among Catholic schools, accused Banzhaf of turning civil rights 'on its head'.
He told Fox: “One wouldn’t expect a Jewish institution to be responsible for providing liturgical opportunities for other faiths and I wouldn’t expect a Catholic institution to do that.
