Paving the Way for Sharia Law

Q - Who's clearing a path for a religious-based parallel universe based on Islam?
A - All the same people who usually try to purge all forms of faith from public life.

At Harvard:
Six times a week, Harvard kicks all the guys out of the Quadrangle Recreational Athletic Center at the request of the Harvard Islamic Society. This is to accommodate those female Muslim students whose faith won’t let them work out in front of men.

In the old days, Harvard would have laughed if some Catholic or evangelical mother urged “girls-only” campus workouts in the name of modesty. Today, Harvard happily implements Sharia swim times in the name of Mohammed. At Harvard, that’s called progress.
At a local community college:

Last week, I visited a Muslim place of worship. A schedule for Islam's five daily prayers was posted at the entrance, near a sign requesting that shoes be removed. Inside, a barrier divided men's and women's prayer space, an arrow informed worshippers of the direction of Mecca, and literature urged women to cover their faces.

Sound like a mosque? The place I'm describing is the "meditation room" at Normandale Community College, a 9,200-student public institution in Bloomington.

In the city of Minneapolis:

"We will continue to support these and other small businesses with almost $5 million dollars of business financing tools that provide . . . alternative financing loans with no interest to business owners whose religious beliefs restrict them from receiving traditional interest-based financing."

Mmmmm, yea; if you could just allow the United States to remain a secular nation that would be great.
