The Washington, D.C. Office of Human Rights confirmed that it is investigating allegations that Catholic University violated the human rights of Muslim students by not allowing them to form a Muslim student group and by not providing them rooms without Christian symbols for their daily prayers.Read the rest here.
The investigation alleges that Muslim students “must perform their prayers surrounded by symbols of Catholicism – e.g., a wooden crucifix, paintings of Jesus, pictures of priests and theologians which many Muslim students find inappropriate.”
A spokesperson for the Office of Human Rights told Fox News they had received a 60-page complaint against the private university. The investigation, they said, could take as long a six months.

This is just grandstanding and trying to stick their finger in the eyes of Catholics. The complaint should be immediately dismissed as frivolous and the students should be told that they will not be allowed to return next semester and to plan on transferring to another school. The professor should be disciplined, though I fear his tenure will protect him from any consequences for his outrageous actions.
