Earlier this week, I posted an article about Muslim students suing Catholic University of America asking the university remove Christian symbols from the classrooms in which the Muslim students pray. I was outraged by the thought that any student attending a private university, knowing full well it is a private religious school, would make such a demand. Well, as it turns out, the students did not make such a demand, a law professor from George Washington University filed the “human rights” complaint.
I apologize for the mistake - here is the corrected information…

Catholic University is sued over Muslim students’ rights
A George Washington University law professor who filed a human rights complaint against Catholic University this summer when it eliminated coed dorm floors has filed a second complaint against the school, saying the rights of Muslim students are being violated.
The latest complaint, filed a few weeks ago with the D.C. Office of Human Rights, focuses on the school’s policy of not giving official status to non-Catholic worship groups. While the school has an official group for Jewish law students, a Muslim undergraduate profiled in aWashington Post article last year said he was told that he could not create a group dedicated to Muslim worship.
he details of that situation were not clear Thursday, but professor John Banzhaf said he filed the complaint with the city based on the article and had not received any complaints from Muslim students.
