It’s predictable, isn’t it?
Liberals generally hate the concept of mixing religion in anything that touches the public arena; whether it’s prayer at a football game, or nativity scenes on a public park property, or the wearing of religious symbols on a necklace in school.
In those cases, liberals can’t get to the phone fast enough to dial 9-1-1-A-C-L-U to launch or at least threaten a lawsuit over supposed separation of church and state rules.
But when it’s a religion other than Christianity, boy, the tolerance of the left knows no bounds.
How else to explain this story, as well as the response from the left – which is all support, no hesitation? Check out this absurd report from Campus Reform, where they apparently show us just how far off the deep end uber-liberal students have gone:
“Students at the University of Maryland have released a list of 64 demands in their effort to make the campus more amenable to ‘marginalized student populations,'” it reads, citing the ProtectUMD campaign, which includes efforts of the Students for Justice in Palestine, Bisexuals at Maryland and the Black Student Union.
The groupings want the typical leftist items, ranging from guarantees of black professors’ tenure, requirements for students to take “queer diversity training,” and implementation of a preferred pronoun rule on campus that allows men and women to be identified by the “he” or “she” moniker, or another, as seen fit.
But there’s another aspect of the campaign that’s even more outrageous. Really, it gets worse:
“Muslim students also want ‘one room in each major building designation for prayer’ and ‘shuttle services to [the local mosque] for Muslim students to have access to a place of worship.”
Are they actively serious? Can you say, “whiny brats?”
“I think [these demands] are ridiculously easy [to accomplish],” said Muslim Student Association member Khaled Nurhssien.
Well how about this: How about the campaign also include in its list of demands a requirement that each meal in the campus cafeteria be preceded by a prayer from a Baptist preacher, and include reference of Jesus?
Perhaps then the left might activate to stop the demands from going forward. Perhaps then the demands wouldn’t be seen as so “easy” and sensible to bring to effect.
