McMurry University a
Methodist college formerly Christian college in Texas has opened up a prayer room just for Muslims.
The Methodist-affiliated McMurry University dedicated the space in one of the school’s residential dorms for its Muslim students’ daily prayers.
Before its creation, Muslim students met for prayer in a nearby hotel, a student who helped establish the new prayer room told The College Fix in an interview.
That student, Joe Yousef, is president of McMurry’s Saudi Student Club. Of the roughly 1,000 students attending McMurry, about 60 are Muslim and many come from Saudi Arabia, Yousef said.
Yousef said now that Muslim students have a prayer room on campus, it will be much easier for them to meet both their religious and scholastic obligations.
Could these be the same scholarly pursuits the Ninth Circuit was concerned about? TATP 101, etc.?
Some students are also supportive.
“Being Christians, we should be open to free religion and letting everyone do what they want to do and I think the Muslim prayer room gives them that chance,” student Hector Flores told BigCountry.com.
Being a Christian does not mean “letting everyone do what they want to do”. Or, at least it didn’t to Christ. Actual Christian schools used to get that. But, here and now, I suppose McMurry is just extending the same sort of courtesy that Saudi colleges lend their numerous Christian students. Oh. Wait. No…
I checked and McMurry has a Center for Community Inclusion AND! a Diversity Affairs Council. And that’s as far as I checked. These names are mere code for anti-Western and anti-Christian. It’s probably safe to dispense with McMurry if one wants an education or a Christian experience. SJWs, feel welcomed! Volunteer for the exciting and diverse TATP 101 Lab – it’s a blast!
Just ask Saint Valentine – or any American Christian college student. The Federalist.
