Muslim Students Enroll at Catholic University, Then Complain About All the Christian Holidays

By

How liberals can defend this kind of nonsense with a straight face is beyond me.

If someone were to enroll at a Muslim university, he or she should certainly expect Muslim holidays to be emphasized. Not even the most conservative Christians among us would argue with that.

And yet, liberals are taking up the banner of Muslim students upset by the fact that the Catholic university in which they enrolled is giving too much attention to Christmas.

Seriously.

Via Truth Revolt:

Muslim students who knew they were enrolling into a Catholic university are now expressing dismay that come Christmas time, the campus is decorated for the holiday season. They want Islamic holidays to receive the same attention even though they represent just a small fraction of the entire student population.

Loyola University Chicago is 60% Catholic and 40% a mixture of other religions, including other Christian denominations, Jewish, etc. The individual categories aren’t broken down. However, out of a total of 16,673 students for this academic year, only about 800 Muslims are enrolled. That’s less than 5%, yet, they want their traditions to be represented equally.

A disgruntled Muslim student set off the firestorm by writing in the school’s newspaper that while he like the Christmas decorations, he “wishes Muslim holidays were just as prominent.”

The really sad thing is that Loyola’s administration appears to be surrendering to this attitude.

Already, the school’s associate director of the student complex, Bryan Goodwin, said that all religious connotations have been removed from this Catholic institution’s celebration of Christmas.

In other words, it’s all about Santa and presents, while Jesus is ignored entirely. Students are urged to avoid using the phrase “Merry Christmas.”

Goodwin went on to say that anyone requesting a public celebration of any type would be accommodated, so expect to see Ramadan on Loyola’s calendar in the near future.
