The left’s war on Christmas is very real.
Across the country, left-wing activists have worked tirelessly to attack Christians celebrating Christmas.
And a group of Muslims just made a disgusting demand to a Catholic University.
Loyola University in Chicago is 60% Catholic and a 40% mixture of other religions.
Of that 40%, less than 5% are Muslim students.
But some of that 5% are making a big stink, and it all has to do with Christmas.
Sajedah Al-khzaleh, a prayer coordinator for the terror-tied Muslim Students Association at the University, wrote an article for the student newspaper demanding that Muslim holidays get as much prominence as Christmas, and other Christian holidays.
As reported by Truth Revolt:
“Muslim students who knew they were enrolling into a Catholic university are now expressing dismay that come Christmas time, the campus is decorated for the holiday season. They want Islamic holidays to receive the same attention even though they represent just a small fraction of the entire student population.
Loyola University Chicago is 60% Catholic and 40% a mixture of other religions, including other Christian denominations, Jewish, etc. The individual categories aren’t broken down. However, out of a total of 16,673 students for this academic year, only about 800 Muslims are enrolled. That’s less than 5%, yet, they want their traditions to be represented equally.
A piece in the Loyola Phoenix, written by Sajedah Al-khzaleh, makes the plea:
It’s that time of year again, and Loyola has decked out its buildings with decorations for the holiday season. But Christmas gets more attention on campus than other religious holidays.
Although Loyola fosters a space for non-Christian religions to practice their faith — such as in the Damen Student Center’s second floor of Ministry Offices for Muslim, Hindu and Jewish students — there is a lack of public festivity compared to Christmas, such as decorations and activities of other religions’ holidays the entire student body could be part of.
A 19-year-old Muslim student and a prayer coordinator for the terror-tied Muslim Student Association, Sajid Ahmed, said he likes the Christmas decorations around campus, but “wishes Muslim holidays were just as prominent.”
The entire campus is invited to a Christmas tree lighting ceremony, while Muslim students must celebrate in private without seeing the campus transformed into a Middle Eastern wonderland, the complaint continues.”
So, this traditionally Catholic school celebrating Christmas is offensive to some students.
And it already appears the outrage is working.
Loyola’s associate director of the student complex, Bryan Goodwin, stated the school is already trying to be more “inclusive” to other religions by using secular icons like Santa Clause, instead of Jesus, and saying “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas.”
These moves are simply a ploy to appease the small minority of students that do not celebrate Christmas.
Despite the fact that Christians and Catholics are already forced to water down their traditions, some Muslim students are still not satisfied.
They clearly aren’t interested in being left alone or assimilating with the society they live in.
