Barbara Hollingsworth of the Washington Examiner, a local paper here in the D.C. Metro Area, has written up a very eloquent piece describing the inherent problems with appeasing slices of the student body at a public institution. Be sure to check out the whole article, since he did a far better job of describing the situation than I did, but here's a quick takeaway for you:
The paradox strains logic. Church and state remain firmly separated on campuses where the majority of students are Christian, Jewish or of no faith, but administrators toss the principle right out the window to satisfy a minority of Muslim students. Many college officials are granting prerogatives to Muslim students in the United States and Canada that are not permitted to other groups. For instance, the Ontario Human Rights Commission regards failure to make special accommodations for Muslim students, including inserting “Islamic perspectives” into secular curriculums like nursing and finance, as a form of “Islamophobia.” Expect similar political correct demands soon on American campuses.
