A useful idiot named John Banzhaf who claims to be a professor at George Washington University, but really spends his time filing nuisance lawsuits on all sorts of topics, has filed a complaint against a Catholic university because the Christian cross is displayed throughout the school. This loon claims that because there are Christian crosses everywhere, why, goshdurnnit, this must offend Muslim students. So he is demanding that the crosses be removed from the school.
The buttinski prof thinks that he is being an advocate for Muslim students at Washington D.C.’s Catholic University of America. He is demanding that the Catholic school remove all its crosses because he thinks that the crosses will somehow prevent Muslims from praying to their own “god.”
Now, the thing is, not a single Muslim student at CUA has ever complained. None of them have said that their own Muslim faith is somehow oppressed by having Christian crosses displayed inside a Christian school. But professor Banzhaf thinks he knows better.
How this halfwitted “professor” can imagine that Muslims can have their religion oppressed with displays of Christian crosses inside a Christian school, but that a lack of crosses won’t harm the Christians’ religious expression is a mystery to any logical, thinking person.
Here is the inescapable logic that this foolish “professor” can’t seem to grasp: He wants all Christian crosses removed, right? So, he obviously thinks that a lack of crosses won’t hurt the Christian students and their expression of faith.
So, with his “logic,” a lack of symbols of religion means religion is still easily practiced.
But think of this: there is already a lack of Muslim symbols in this school. And here is the thing: if Christians can pray to God without crosses being present, how is it that Muslims can’t pray to their Allah if symbols of their religion aren’t present.
He is essentially attacking a problem that doesn’t exist.
Worse, this Banzhaf character seems think that Muslims are so stupid that they can’t figure out how to pray to their “god” if there are symbols that are not of their faith present in any given room?
He has just infantilized Muslims.
I’m not alone in think this Banzhaf guy is a jerk.
“This attorney is really turning civil rights on its head,” Patrick Reilly of the Cardinal Newman Society noted. “He’s using the law for his own discrimination against the Catholic institution and essentially saying Catholic University cannot operate according to Catholic principles.”
But this Banzhaf nut has a long history of such busy-body, nuisance lawsuits and complaints such as this new attack on Christianity. He has filed suits on such issues as obesity, smoking, discrimination, the environment and a host of other issues in none of which he was wanted nor asked to become involved.
Thomas Peters of the website CatholicVote is mystified by the whole thing but is also worried that this hate-filled, nosey nanny could end up adding to the constant stream of oppression of Christians stemming from both Muslims and fiendishly compliant liberals in our country these days.
“Can you imagine a law professor helping Catholic students to sue a Jewish or Muslim school to demand that the schools install crosses, remove their religious symbols, and allow the Catholics to construct a chapel on their property? Can you imagine the argument being that Jewish and Muslims schools using their religious symbols and following their faith traditions would be described in the legal brief as ‘offensive’?!”
“Normally I would have confidence that this lawsuit will be deemed without merit, but the way things are going these days, I just can’t be sure anymore. Simply incredible.”
If you are interested in contacting the Washington D.C. Office of Human Rights to voice support for the Catholic university, call 202-727-4559 or leave a written message at the office website.
If you would like to send a message of support to Catholic University of America, here is the school’s web contact page.
Now, I’d like to stress that–for a change–no Muslims are complaining about these Christian crosses inside this Catholic university. A publicity-seeking, left-wing, hater of the United States is the one perpetrating this complaint.
But if this maggot wins, you can bet that anti-American groups like the un-indicted, co-conspirator of terrorists called CAIR will be all over this idea. If this complaint is successful it’ll be just one more example of our laws being used against us to aid Islam to defeat the west and destroy us all.
But this story is a perfect illustration that the impulse for wanting despotism and a yearning for an autocratic state isn’t much different in liberals as it is Islamists.
