Muslim students attending Catholic University claim human rights violation

Posted on: October 28, 2011

This idiotic situation has been on the news lately and quite frankly I don’t see what the problem is with the Muslim claim that their human rights were violated. After all they did pick a “catholic” university to attend. What were they thinking would be the ambience of the university? Secular – no there will be religious symbols that reflect the university’s theology.

The Catholic University in Washington, D.C. is being investigated by the Washington D.C. Office of Human Rights over allegations  that it violated human rights of Muslim students by not allowing them to form a Muslim student group and not providing rooms without Christian symbols for their daily prayers.

Except for the obvious this is a “private” school that really doesn’t need to be politically correct. I saw a debate on Sean Hannity  last night with a Muslim representative and he could not come up with a cogent explanation or rebuttal for this idiotic investigation.

A more recent article on TownHall written by Katie Pavlich says this case involves an overzealous, activist lawyer from George Washington University law professor John Banzhaf.  In fact, not a single Muslim student at Catholic University has signed on to Professor Banzhaf’s complaint and he admitted to her that he lodged the complaint against Catholic with the D.C. Office of Human Rights as a concerned individual, not on behalf of any student or group of students.

Professor Banzhaf teaches a course at GWU on “legal activism” — the practice of using legal maneuvers to drive social change.  “While most lawyers see the law as a means of living, the legal activist looks to see what kinds of problems I’m interested
in and how I can use legal activism as a weapon to address those problems,” Banzhaf says.

So what really happened here was that Banzhaf wanted his fifteen minutes of fame by bringing on a frivolous request for an investigation. Guess he doesn’t have much to do so he’s keeping not only himself but others with busy work.
