Wow! Who Woulda Thunk It!

Professor Bainbridge links to this Fox News story:

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.

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.”
You know, in a million years, I would never have guessed that a school named Catholic University might have some vague, slight, almost impossible to detect Christian orientation.  Would you?
