Accomodating Muslims -- Harvard

Let's not forget what's happened in France with their Muslim accommodations and the problems that it has caused that country.

But really, will a request for gym hours cause a problem? I don't think so.

I saw this on the Early Morning show:Harvard tries women-only gym hours.

Although, I find nothing wrong with a women's only gym hours, this experiment at Harvard makes me wonder what Harvard's reaction would be if the women requesting this change were other than Muslim?

Let's say that the women who were making the request were Christians, would Harvard be as accommodating? Don't count on it, I believe America is turning into an anti-Christian country and any request by Christians would be suspect in non-Christian minds.

So, why placate another religious group, just to be politically correct. There we go again, with that phrase, words I am learning to detest.

Daily Free Press -- The Independent Student Newspaper at Boston University:

"We live together in one community, it only makes sense for everyone to
compromise slightly in order for everyone to live happily," she said.
"This matter is simple: Can't we just display basic decency and show
tolerance and inclusion for people not a part of the mainstream

My thoughts to this quote: Sure we can live happily, if compromise goes both ways and all groups are given equal latitude. But, so far as I've seen, everyone is going over-board placating Muslims and their beliefs, while telling the rest of us where we can stick our nonsensical beliefs. So...what gives!

I went on to read some reactions to this Harvard tidbit and found a plethora of responses, read them here

Personally, I feel that there's nothing wrong with having a women's only gym hour. And in this particular case the women requesting the change happened to be what -- another group of religious or non-religious women had or have the same opportunity to make such requests.

From what I understand the women requesting the change are requesting it for all women not just Muslims or religious women.

Some people are afraid that this is the Muslim first step in trying to integrate Sharia law into the United States. No, that won't happen, why-- (1) there'd be another American civil war if anyone tried it. (2) Sharia law is only upheld in some Muslim countries and most escaped to America to get out from under this oppression.

Now, if we wind up having a Governor, or Mayor, or Senator, or [guffaw] President wanting to implement something or anything resembling Muslim Sharia law, to accommodate Muslims...THEN there would be a big, big problem.

But these gym hour requests, no, I believe it's innocent and will benefit different Harvard women.

This is interesting. I think it's great they granted them that. I mean they didn't have to, but I agree as part of a community some compromises must be made.

Although, I don't agree they did it just because they were Muslim. I mean we'll never know how they would react if a Christian woman had asked... because one didn't.

I don't know, I think Christians would have a slightly better rep if every time they needed someone of Christian faith, they didn't seek out the extremist and actually try to interview them like they have any sense. THAT'S annoying.
