The Lawyer, The Liberals And The Law

When I first saw the headline: “Muslims Sue to Remove Crosses at Catholic University,” my common sense-alarms began shrieking like Democrats trying to shout down an intelligent guest speaker.

Granted, one could remove the identifier “Muslims” and still have a headline which would deliver a frown to the face of virtually anyone above Ed Schultz on the human evolutionary scale. But the idea of a bunch of Muslims who willingly chose to matriculate to the private Catholic University are actually suing because the place just seems too “Christian-ish” is the sort of stupid you can usually only catch on MSNBC. Keep in mind that “Catholic University” is not a reference to an individual Catholic university; “Catholic University” in this case is the NAME OF THE FREAKING SCHOOL!

 “My, Akbar! What a marvelous university we have chosen!”

 “Indeed, Mustafa. If only there were fewer infidel symbols about. It really offends my delicate sensibilities.”

However, before you begin spitting epithets at poor Akbar and Mustapha, a caveat: they have nothing to do with this scurrilous outrage. In fact, not ONE Muslim is a complainant in the lawsuit against Catholic U. So, who possesses the unmitigated gall required to defile an American courtroom in such a manner it requires a particularly abominable character — someone of such low moral fiber, with such a clouded soul they would give Hannibal Lecter pause?

Meet John Banzhaf, George Washington University law professor, infamous uber-litigator and an ambulance-chasing, frivolous lawsuit-bringing parasite who is so deservedly reviled for his litigious ways that he makes even former Democrat Vice Presidential nominee John Edwards look like Clarence Darrow.

If you haven’t heard of Banzhaf, count yourself lucky. In addition to being a prominent member of the American liberal movement — in itself a refuge for many of the most twisted and deficient cretins in the nation (see also: fleabaggers), Banzhaf is essentially the living embodiment of the reason Americans hate trial lawyers.

Think of the guys who advertise on buses, phone books and late night television. The guys who promise should you slip and fall in your neighbor’s driveway, he’ll get you a “SUPER SETTLEMENT;” even if that means bankrupting your neighbors, the contractor who built the driveway, the company which makes the asphalt the contractor used, and your city for approving the installation of such a slippery place.

Now think of that briefcase-toting slug on steroids. Banzhaf is the bottom-feeder who sues pretty much anyone from whom he thinks he can abscond with money; no matter how devoid of merit his actions might be.

Of course, Banzhaf is pursuing this latest legal-beagling for the same reason Democrat leaders do anything: good, old-fashioned hypocritical greed. His actions, though revolting, are no different than liberal icon, Halliburton investor and war profiteer Michael Moore urging his followers to abhor the wealthy while he sits on a pile of money.

Banzhaf is suing Catholic U. for the same reason Nancy Pelosi shrieks about the plight of the poor from her multi-million dollar palace in San Francisco. Banzhaf’s motives are the same as those of President and Mrs. Obama, who can call themselves “warriors for the middle class” while spending millions on Spanish vacations and separate planes to Martha’s Vineyard (where Michelle will nag people about their diets in between spoonfuls of Crisco® straight from the can).

In the case of Banzhaf’s latest assault on dignity, there are real victims beyond the mindless drones who offer fealty to filth like Moore and the Obamas: the students in whose name Banzhaf filed the suit.

There are moments when the actions of SOME Muslims border on the cringe-worthy. And as I have noted before, most of the basic tenets of Islam really don’t work for me. The often brutal subjugation of women, the pre-industrial attitudes of many Muslims and the ban on bacon cheeseburgers are all deal-breakers for me.

However, not all Muslims are terrorists. Not all Muslims are troglodyte repressors. And absolutely NO Muslims are suing Catholic University over the ubiquity of Christian imagery at that well-respected institution. Instead, they’re being used as props in the same appalling hypocrisy which marks virtually every liberal action.

 Now they know how we feel.

    To hell with the muslims.

    • Karolyn

      Did you not read the part where it says that no Muslims are involved? Or did you just want to make a ridiculous statement because it makes you feel better?

      • Patriot II

        Karolyn; Then why are no Muslims coming forward to refute him?

        • Jeryl

          Ah, a good point!

          • http://yahoo jeff

            Muslim students did come forward declaring that they had nothing to do with this law suit. I saw this sleaze bag attorney being interviewed by Monica Crowley sittng in for Bill O’Reilly and he truly portrayed himself as SCUM. By the way I am Catholic. I mention this so you don’t immediately think I am a Muslim defending Muslims. I try to deal with truth and honesty.

          • Patriot II

            Jeff, I watched the same interview, to be correct, the School said that there were no complaints from Muslim Students, NO WHERE DID IT CITE ANY MUSLIM STUDENT COMING FORWARD. you had inferrreed that from the interview and the statements from the school. WHEN I SEE A MUSLIM STUDENT ON THE TV SPEAKING OUT AGAINST THIS MAN I will then consider one to have come forward.

          • http://yahoo jeff

            If you are correct I am remembering incorrectly as to where I did see Muslim students deny any affiliation with this law suit. I do remember seeing an interview with a young male Muslim student.

            Obama is not the devil. i hope you don’t call yourself a christian with that mouth, seems to me that you are the devil not obama. Obama is in office because God put him their. it’s funny how republicians and concervitives call themselfes christians but spend day and night bashing obama. read psalms 75:6,7 and romans 13:1,2 and you will see that god is in control not you. pray for obama instead of bashing him like the devil wants you to bash him.

      • Dan morgan

        Karolyn, why is it a bad comment? (to hell with muslims) in muslim countries they murder christians, gays, jews, liberal brainwashed people like u, and murder woman, I suggest u go run ur mouth in iran and see how long u live. They are dangerous cult members with a false god and a child molesting prophet whose wife was 6 years old , mohamed was a satan inspired demon possed animal

      • Honestly

        Karolyn…you hit the nail on the head. They just can not keep it clean.

    • http://naver samurai

      I remember Joe H. telling me about this and reading it on and now it is here. If they don’t like being at a Catholic School, then go somewhere else for your false faith. If they don’t like living in a Christian founded nation, then go home. Don’t let the door hit you on the backside on the way out. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • Lost in Paradise

        You got it. On the mark.

    • LTCB

      I think the term you’re looking for is not muslim, at least in this case. It’s “trial lawyer”.

        And this is why this country desperately needs Tort Reform, as they passed in Texas recently. In some countries if you bring a frivolous lawsuit against someone and lose YOU HAVE TO PAY THE COSTS THAT THE ONE YOU WERE SUING PAID TO DEFEND HIMSELF. (Wasn’t it Shakespeare who wrote, centuries ago, ‘First we kill all the lawyers’). Tort Reform is unlikely to happen on a national level until we no longer have any Democrats in power as they are almost always lawyers, and sadly many Republicans go along with this too because many of them are not really conservative.

        The real problem is not left versus right but it is one of good versus evil. Morality versus immorality. We now have a second generation of people no longer taught anything but the liberal socialist agenda of “God is the state, and the state is God!” OF COURSE THEY DON’T ACTUALLY SAY THAT but that is what most under 40 have been taught in the public schools of the USA.

        However even information discovered by the Isaac Newton Bible Research Society indicates that they have discovered with high mathematical probability using supercomputers and the Bible Code software that we are already living in the beginnings of the so-called “end of days”. Of course there are those who think they are God and who do not accept even the logic of probability but they only miss out on what might help them. They are the blind leading the blind. One doesn’t have to believe in the Bible Code but it just one more thing that proves God’s loves us and treats us as a loving father. When it is necessary to chastise us because we won’t learn any other way, then reluctantly, He will do that too.

        Jesus said when asked by His followers what would be the signs of the end times and he said it would be as it was in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah (known not just for their flagrant homosexuality but also for their hedonism and lack of hospitality) and that there would be earthquakes in many places, and epidemics and diseases (AIDS, AUTISM, ALZHEIMER’S?) and that men’s hearts would fail them, and there would be food shortages and famines and more, and this would just be the beginning of what I have called the ‘hard times’.

        I wrote about this some in both my books, especially “THE LAST DAYS OF THE LATE GREAT UNITED STATES and the Great Famine that Followed” and even quoted a world renowned Christian minister and prophet on what he saw was coming but I recently came across something while surfing the Internet that fits right in place here. I do not know the gentleman but what he said strikes a chord with my spirit. I don’t know the when of it, but I would say the best believers can do is to daily pray for our country and to make sure their own lives are what they should be. Jesus Himself, said, “you know not the day nor the hour” and just this past weekend an elderly man in Pennsylvania was relaxing in a recliner when a tree fell through his house and killed him and in another state the same storm caused lines to fall and the police had blocked off the road. A 20 year old got out of his car because he couldn’t see what the hold up was and he was electrocuted when he stepped on an unseen live wire.

        I’ve shortened the following but believers need to consider their own lives and to prepare for the hard times that are coming as they are going to make the Great Depression “look like a walk in the park”. I am assuming that the following words (based on the phraseology used) is coming from a Christian within the Protestant tradition. They resonate with my spirit and I believe they are worth heeding.

        “This once great nation, created as a mirror image of the GREAT Israel, was offered like Her, God’s Hand of Protection, as well as IMMENESE blessings from Him. While praying for this nation last November, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and told me that SOON, God was about to lift His Hand of “Protection” from us, and replace it with His Hand of “Judgement”. He told me the reasons were: 1) abortion. 2) homosexuality. 3) rampant anti Israel sentiment. 4) polluting the church, making it a den of Satan. 5) being the pornography capitol of the world (I have read elsewhere that 89% of ALL the pornography in the world comes from the USA…R). 6) removing prayer and Godly Statues/items from EVERYWHERE possible. (Atheists in Montana are trying to have a statue of Jesus removed that has been there for 60 years. See:
        7) The persecution of Christians, and making fun of God, and the Holy Bible. 8) RAMPANT anti-Christian behavior….the Holy Spirit….also told me that before God was finished, this ENTIRE nation would be on it’s knees, BEGGING God to STOP. If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, FIND HIM NOW. If you are Saved, but have “BACKSLIDDEN” and have un-confessed SIN in your lives, REPENT NOW!” – Paul Kidd

        Considering how hard-hearted some who oppose God are I believe it will have to be unbelievable before some of them would call out to God. Believer’s, however, have been warned in many places, including here. There is much to learn and not a lot of time to learn it. I cannot tell you how fast all the ‘changes’ are coming but I am fully persuaded that while we may not see hyperinflation, we will see the prices of food and fuel, and everything we use, except possibly houses, TRIPLE IN PRICE. I have seen many of the items I eat increase in price 20% just in the past year. As recently deceased Rev. David Wilkerson (1931-1981) said when he revealed his “Urgent Message” a vision of a thousand fires out of control all over NYC, NJ and CT and riots and fires all across the country and the world, “Do with the message as you choose.” See:
        May God bless all who read this and may He open their hearts to Him while it will make a difference in their lives.

        • http://none Richard Pawley

          An update to both my books: While wondering if a “Great Earthquake” would destroy the City of Angels before September of 2010 (the Hebrew 5770) I heard the Holy Spirit say that “Because many are praying for the people of Los Angeles the “Great Earthquake” has been postponed until the summer of 2014.” This taught me two things, that even though it was mentioned in the Bible Code with a very high probability of happening prayer had changed it, and that things did not have to happen as predicted if enough people prayed. It never occurred to me to pray for LACALIF. I think FEMA is taking this seriously because they recently purchased 40,000,000 meals of mostly freeze dried food at a cost of nearly a billion dollars and they are recommending that everyone have at least a three day food and water supply on hand at all times. Since our national just-in-time delivery system only has a three day supply of food in it I think a lot more is needed. Of course they may be preparing for a quake in the New Madrid Fault but they will certainly need this in less than 3 years.
          Fascinating times we are living in.

          “However even information discovered by the Isaac Newton Bible Research Society indicates that they have discovered with high mathematical probability using supercomputers and the Bible Code software that we are already living in the beginnings of the so-called “end of days”.

          They needed a super computer to tell them what God has already said in His Word? Bible Code software? This comes under the heading of “Lean not unto thine own understanding.”

          Of course we are in the end times. Bible prophesy foretells of this way back in the Old Testament.

          6) “prayer and Godly Statues/items from EVERYWHERE possible..”

          Godly Statues? There is no such thing. You must mean graven images? God already told us that we are NOT to have graven images. Pictures, statues of God or Jesus are forbidden. Why? Because God knows man’s penchant to worship graven images, aka dead idols. Think Golden Calf.

          Genuflecting to graven images when walking into a Catholic church is also giving worship to dead idols. God has told us not to do this.

          Using bible code software to understand God is an abomination. This “bible code” stuff is another form of the Tower of Babel.

            I remember waching on tv about Newton papers. Very interesting documentary I think about it very frequently. I think he was a genious in one bible prophecy. The one of the last days. Now as time goes so bad everywhere I believe what he wrote. He was worry about the end of the world but he was no more because he didn’t know the hour or day but he find out the year around 20054 I’m not sure about the year but I remember it is after 2050. If somebody know where I can find this information I’ll like to read it again. An Englisman got Newton papers in an auction. The traslation was possible until the 1970′s. He was a man of faith and love the Creator.

        • DaveR

          Shakespeare wrote that quote in the context of how to create anarchy, not for the purpose for which you and most others make reference to it. Go, read it in context and then decide for yourself if you agree with my explanation or not.

        • Dan morgan

          I find it strange that when the HOLY SPIRIT was telling him why America would be brought to its knees that homosexuals were mentioned but hexterosexuals were’nt, when u consider they outnumber us gays by 20 to 1 and their sex sins out of marraige are rampant far exceding gay sin as they far outnumber us, read in JERIMIAH where GOD tells ISRAEL and the JEWS that they make him sick for going out in the fields under the trees and having heteralsexual sex and GOD SAID I WILL DESTORY U ISRAEL FOR U ARE JUST LIKE SODOM AND GOMORRAH YOU COMMIT FORNICATION AND ADULTRY, SO WHY DIDNT THE HOLY SPIRIT MENTION TO THIS MAN ABOUT HETERALSEXUAL SEX SIN AS IT IS THE NUMBER ONE BY FAR SEX SIN OF AMERICA, SOUNDS LIKE ANTI GAY STUFF TO ME. THE BEAUTIFUL HOLY SPIRIT WOULD NEVER FAIL TO LEAVE OUT THE DOMINATE SEX SIN IN AMERICA, STRAIGHT SEX OUTSIDE OF MARRAIGE, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT U STRAIGHT PEOPLE GIVE BIRTH TO ALL US GAY PEOPLE AND THATS MORE OF A REFLECION ON YOU ALL AND UR SINS THAN IT IS ON GAY PEOPLE, GAYS ARE HOMOMENTAL AND HOMOEMOTIONAL FAR MORE THAN WE ARE HOMOSEXUAL, remember, LOVE LOVE LOVE EVERYONE OR U DONT GO TO HEAVEN PERIOD

      did anyone read the page or do you just have trouble understanding what was written.

      • libertytrain

        I’m with you on that, some folks really need to slow down or actually read the words that were written, not just a few of the words.

  • Karolyn

    What can one say but “UNBELIEVABLE!” How can it even be brought to trial? The university is a private institution.

    • bobby nealey

      any thing can be brought to court,but the unfair part is the amount of money and time a person or business has to spend to clear themselves and if they win they still have that cloud over them . I think that if the person or business should be reembused by the claimate for all money, time and the cloud it casts that would stop 75% of these junk cases.

      • Jeryl

        Absolutely correct.

      • ernest

        you can’t do that ( charge the lawyers with anything ) it would slow down the law suets ( you know other countrys kick our lawyer out ) our whole law setup is wrong.

        • bobby nealey

          you can bring charges against anybody any time you just better hope you have the facts or be able to out lie them.

    • Patriot II

      Karolyn; Thats only if you are a Liberal/Marxist you get treated right, if you are Conservative anything goes, as we are being demonized and exploited by the Liberal /Democarts through the Marxist Media to create Hatred among the unemployed in order to advance their(Liberal/Marxists/Democrats) agenda.

    • JimC


      I heard an interview with this “respected member of the Bar” (I will refer to him as Sleazy Attorney or SA)on Hannity’s radio show.

      Hannity had another attorney also on at the same time – attorney #2 has a track record of representing the winning side 14 out of 17 appearances before the US Supreme Court.

      One would think this would be a First Amendment issue and ultimately end up in the SC of US right? Apparently not,filed as as civil rights case, this complaint was filed by SA in the “Superior Court of Washington, DC”, which apparently does not feed to the SC of US, where numerous precidents exist which would preclude the case even being heard because Catholic University is classed as a religous institution and not subject to the unfortunately usual BS which other universities, private clubs, state institutions, etc. are subjected to.

      The SC of US has been down this road before and has refused to force a religious institution remove it’s own religious symbols within it’s own facilities.

    • Regina W

      I hate to tell you this but this article and story is true. I was listening to Fox News Sunday night and the attorney leading this suit, Mr. Banzhaf was being interviewed as to why he was suing the University. When repeatedly asked who he represented since none of the muslim students in this school complained about mistreatment, he wouldn’t answer. He was continually pressed on who he represented. When asked whether CAIR or the Muslim Brotherhood were the ones in fact behind this he just snickered. So, you can bet that it is those 2 organizations who are behind this lawsuit, but this is a true story and there is a lawsuit from this scumbag. The only response he would give is “why can’t these muslim students have a separate prayer room?” “is that too much to ask?”. The reply was “they are attending a private, catholic college!”. He didn’t care. I believe everyone on this post should contact the college he is supposedly a professor of and express their outrage. This is just incredulous to me and should be to everyone of us.

      • Jeep

        I saw the same interview, I got the distinct impression Banzhaf was simply on a “fishing” trip. He is still hoping to gin up some unwary Muslim student to come forward as a face for the complaint. However, it doesn’t seem to be working out so well. Let’s just hope that holds true.

      • Lost in Paradise

        It is very very curious to me, why muslims would attend a Catholic College. They “muslims” seem to be infiltrating everywhere.

    Talk to the STUPID lawyer, and do NOT confuse him with a good liberal. Truthfully,he better fits the description of a conservative than liberal, if we are into name calling, which people on here do all too easily. Of course, not a word here about the Muslims suing, and winning, a court case to get all pork removed from various prison kitchens. Not only are they getting their diet the way they want it, they are forcing all others in those institutions to participate in their style of eating, like it or not.

    When is this country going to go back to standing up for what we are and stop allowing every other religion, idealism, methodology turn us from what we are. How can any person or group sue a Catholic school for having crosses on their campus? This must stop!!!

    • Lost in Paradise

      When everyone takes arms, stands up and say, WE have had enough! WE will only get what we want with brute force. The liberals are now very powerful.

  • Robert

    If they don’t like the cross, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! Basic rule of society; don’t go to places you don’t like.
    Seriously, this is a ploy to tear down the US. Sounds radical? No more so than anyone going into a school run by the Church and demanding crosses be removed because it is offensive.
    Send them all back to the middle east so they won’t be offended. it or leave it!

    • Jeryl

      As Crystal said, the Muslim students ARE NOT suing Catholic University. They, unlike most liberals, appear to be reasonable enough to know that if they didn’t like the see crosses at all, they could have gone to another university. So, don’t blame the Muslim students in this case.

    Wasn’t there a recent court ruling from one of the Carolina’s stating that the name of JESUS was unconstitutional and cannot be allowed?
    Whatever happened to freedom of religion inherent in the first amendment?
    The EU tried the same nonsense with Italy because one, ONE non-catholic sued to have all crosses removed from the schools. Italy was ordered to remove them but Berlusconi told them where to stick it!!! You may think he is a clown but here he was right and praised for his response. I hope the judges here do likewise and stick this greedy lawyer with the expenses.

      The Bill of Rights is not the source of our rights. Rights come with American citizenship, they are god-given and unalienable.

    If we went to live/work in an islamic country (God forbid), we would be FORCED to accept their way of life as ‘normal’ and mandatory, yet when they come here to live, they immediately try to make us into the very country they left because it was so oppressive!!! Go figure!! Moslems are encroaching on all western democracies by stealth, quite apart from terrorism.
    They move here under the pretext of ‘starting a better life’, then continue unabated extreme breeding and demanding everything conform to their social norms! Pretty soon they’ll be waking us all at 0400 with a screaming mullah calling everyone to prayer (which goes on for an hour and a half by the way, just in case some idiots out there are ‘happy’ to put up with that lunacy). This is fact, as anyone who has spent any time in an islamic country can tell you, and yes I have.
    I know what I’m talking about.
    Recently I encountered an elderly gentleman at a shopping mall. I didn’t know him, but he was so angry he couldn’t help venting at me, a total stranger, but a fellow ‘normal citizen’.
    He told me he had just been kicked out of the hairdressing salon at the mall where his wife was having her hair done, because a muslim woman had come in to have her hair done, and no man apart from her husband is ‘allowed’ to see her hair!!!!
    People, evil only triumphs when good people do nothing.
    Moslems WILL take over, not by terrorism, but by stealth and breeding like rabbits, so they outnumber us in our own democracy. They WILL destroy everything this country stands for.
    Defend it or lose it.
    Our choice.

        Winston Churchill said it better than I can “…if you will not fight for the right when when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly,you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves”
        I whole heartedly agree

          “To conquer, first divide!”

          One has to wonder how it is possible that what is essentially a non story, provokes such a range of democratic* responses from the functionally illiterate to the willfully ignorant? (*refers to the
          opinion entitlement sans facts in the worlds only true democracy, the internet )

          FACT: Because of the protections of the First Article of the Bill of Rights and the location of the claimed “injury”, this case would have no standing in any court, and any judge could and should dismiss this action as “frivilous”. ( a term which is often used to obscure, but which in this case is as close to “self evident” as you can get.)

          FACT: The above mentioned protections do NOT supercede the Constitution, itself……which Article 6, declares is the Supreme Law of the Land, and because of this “supremacy”….no religious test
          is required to hold any public office. ( the reason for this is that
          any holder of public office would be under “oath” to preserve, protect
          and defend the Constitution, above any religious conviction and failure to do so would be a violation of that oath. )

          Unfortunately, amidst the democratic* babble ( babel ) this FACT along with the continual references to our form of government as a
          democracy……continues to incite the willfully ignorant on all manner of issues which in terms of the Constitution, are essentially

          Onst upon a time, journalism was taught to be primarily focused on conveying the facts of who, what, when, where, why and how, of any particular event…..of course, this was in a time when the sources of information were fewer and “news” was more important, for the reason that “events” do have influence over peoples lives…….now,
          however, the babble is constant…..and I find myself wondering about
          what writer’s on sites like this ( contributers, like Mr. Crystal )
          make of the “comments” that are generated by articles such as this?

          We are heading into very “interesting times” and history has demonstrated that the use of scapegoats is a tried and true method
          of inspiring “democracy”…….but this is not what is needed, nor is it leadership or responsible.

          My apologies, feel free to continue what you were doing.

      Peter, Jesus said (John 18:36): “My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence,”
      “World” there should have been translated ‘era.’ Jesus’ “not from hence” means not of that time. In my opinion, the time when Christ’s servants would fight is now.

  • Karen

    Did any of you read the complete colum? The jerk bringing the lawsuit against the Catholic University is not representing any Muslim anybody; it is brought by an ambulance chasing George Washington University law professor. I am as tired as anyone of people coming to this country and trying to change our way of living but this time it is not the case. Did you get the part about Michael Moore is an investor in Halliburton?

    • Jeryl

      Michael Moore, Al Gore, et al, are all hypocrites. You can’t jet around the world making an ass of yourself without the means to do so. They’ve all gotten rich taking advantage of the capitalistic system they claim to hate.

    DEMS are strictly for having POWER OVER OTHERS and their color or faith or income, whatever, are of no import EXCEPT that they will own YOU…as in slavish thought, action etc. Color or religion has nothing to do with slavery. That is why so many ‘under’ Dems look zombie-like.

    I’d be curious to know what his damages are. In other words, the cross on a Christian instution caused him damages in what way that he requires monetary compensation? It’s always been my understanding that to bring a proper suit, you have to show that you have suffered damages.

    ‘ TAQIYYA ‘
    Do your own research about it if you don’t know what this means.

    islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    islam strives for world domination.

    The quran commands muslims to exercise jihad.

    The quern commands muslims to establish shariah law.

    The quern commands muslims to impose islam on the entire world.

    islam is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    islam IS and has remained a death cult from its beginnings.

    islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a islamic society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the quran is the call to jihad.

    Jihad means a lot of things and is arabic for battle.

    islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    islam and freedom, islam and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    mohamed’s “wife” was six years old.

    That makes mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

  • Charles

    There are many other fine universities in America and the world. The cross, the resurrection and the promise of the soon returning King, is the foundation of the Christian faith. This will never be demolished!

    • C Colin

      Charles, first of all the cross comes from the god Tammuz, “t”. Second the babylonian priest used it on their robes. Third “Christianity” the word is derived from Christ who’s origin comes from Krishna, the Indian god. Jesus comes from the god Zues. Put them together and you get Zues-Krishna, “Jesus Christ”.
      It is all part of the deception from Rome, the mystery religion that sits on 7 hills. Wake up America!

    It is just so typical of this site that it would post this totally false story to fire up the loons.

      The story is true I hate to tell you. I actually listened to the attorney behind the lawsuit speaking about it. Maybe a suggestion would be to start paying more attention to what is really going on instead of assuming that anything you don’t want to believe is a lie.

    Hey Banzhaf , while you are at it sue the Catholic Church for the Inquisition. Or Constantine for using pagan holidays so the pagans would accept the lie of Christianity. Or the Holier than thou that burned people at the stake. While I think the Catholic church has a lot to answer for ,I believe in if you don’t like it don’t do it. i.e., if you don’t want to be around the symbols of the infidels go home. The koran calls for the faithful to make jihad against the infidels. so they are not as innocent as they would like us to believe. so i think that organized religions are all based on lies and blood.

    This lawyer reminds me of a law firm some years ago. They sued a tv station for not hiring minorities on the basis of an “unknown” client. The firm refused to name their client and the court ruled that they didn’t have to do it. After fighting this for some time, they finally settled out of court – only to have the same firm immediately sue them again for the same reason.

  • Capitalist at Birth

    Ben, Great article. I was aware that at this point there are no Muslims involved directly in this law suit. I guess this is just a sport for this sleaze of an attorney. It will be interesting to find out if CAIR or some other Muslim organization is involved in the background. On a side note, I do not see how we can co-exist with the followers of Islam at any point in time. They have been at war with the rest of the world for over 1300 years. I do not see that war ending any time soon.

  • valerie

    This should not even be allowed to clog and clutter up our jusdicial system. 1) since no Muslim is even involved and 2) if there were muslims involved still should not be allowed in court they should just be instructed it would better serve them to attend a different University. Anyway you look at this it is ignorance. The 1st ammendment clearly state government can not prohibit free exercise of religion and a catholic university is not government run, right

    The Muslims who matriculate to a Catholic college should be forced to renounce their religion and be forced to convert to Catholicism, then and only then would they know what non-muslims around the world feel when non-muslims, in muslim countries, are forced to renounce their faith and made to convert to Islam, so their lives will be spared. That would be the best education they ever receive.
