As JihadWatch notes, crucifixes hung in a classroom at the Catholic University ‚ÄĒ a private university in Washington, D.C. ‚ÄĒ are apparently now considered a violation of Muslim students‚Äô human rights.
The school‚Äôs newspaper details the new legal complaint:
The official allegations claim that CUA, ‚Äúdoes not provide space ‚Äď as other universities do ‚Äď for the many daily prayers Muslim students must make, forcing them instead to find temporarily empty classrooms where they are often surrounded by Catholic symbols which are incongruous to their religion,‚ÄĚ according to a press release on PRLOG.com.
This formal complaint also maintains that the new same-sex residence halls are particularly discriminating against female students, which is a new position on the same-sex lawsuit that began last month....
I read on the Lord's Day Mr. David Dickson's 'Truths Victory Over Error' Chapter XXI of Religious Worship and the Sabbath Day and he used this text you quote here. Speaking of the Papists images and the Greeks pictures and that both do err, he said in his second and fourth reason. "2. Because God is infinite,unmeasurable, incomprehensible, and spiritual and therefore nothing can represent Him. and 4. "Images and pictures are lies and vanities which the Lord abhors and mocks at with a holy scorn." and he quotes Isa. 44:9-18 Mr. Dickson agrees with you.
Isa 44:14 He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it. 15 Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread; yea, HE MAKETH A god, and WORSHIPPETH it; he maketh it a GRAVEN IMAGE, and falleth down thereto. 16 He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire: 17 And the residue thereof he MAKETH A god, even HIS GRAVEN IMAGE: he falleth down unto it, and WORSHIPPETH it, and PRAYETH UNTO it, and saith, DELIVER ME; for THOU ART MY god. 18 They have not known nor understood: for he hath SHUT THEIR EYES, that they CANNOT SEE; and their hearts, that THEY CANNOT UNDERSTAND"

CUA, you may think BYU is Protestant which is something of a surprise since [URL=http://www.johnankerberg.org/Articles/_PDFArchives/roman-catholicism/RC2W0601.pdf]]]Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses[/URL] have more in common with each other than they do Christians, and I would add that Catholics have more in common with [URL=http://bibleprobe.com/muhammad.htm]]]Muhammad[/URL]ans than they do Christians/Protestants as well, [URL=http://www.reachingcatholics.org/islam_rome.html]]]Understanding Islam and Roman Catholicism[/URL], So, all in all I'm surprised Cat. U. hasn't allowed the Islamists to build a mosque on campus?
However the powers that be at Cat. U, could hang in a prominent place in the Dean of Student Affairs Office:
"Pope Benedict XVI said,
Stressing that they were not his own words, he quoted Emperor Manual II Paleologos of the Byzantine Empire, the Orthodox Christian empire which had its capital in what is now the Turkish city of Istanbul."
Emperor Manual II Paleologos of the Byzantine Empire wrote: Show me just what [URL=http://bibleprobe.com/muhammad.htm]]]Muhammad[/URL] brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached. [/QUOTE
CUA Well at least this used to be a free country, which btw freedom of conscience was not something given to us by the RCC but by God Himself who gave us certain unalienable rights among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The point I would hope you might catch onto is that the RCC is reaping what they are sowing in catering to Muslims and yet still for those willing to hear it, points towards a very real fulfillment of the book of Revelation when Rome will sit as the, in my words, Religious Queen prostituting herself with all the religions, and that would be false religions of the earth, including Islam, apostate liberal Evangelicalism and mystical emergent false Christianity, having an antichrist counterfeit Christianity that embraces all the (false) religions of the world and which all the (false) relgions of the world can and will embrace. And whom God Himself in His Holiness and Truth will judge just like He says He will in the Book of Revelation.

CUA I am a Baptist, a former never to be again Roman Catholic BECAUSE God saved me by bringing me to Repentance and Saving Faith in Lord Jesus Christ, through the knowledge of the Truth which He gives to us in His Holy Word the Bible and bears witness of by His Spirit, to gladly and knowingly renounce the infant baptism and follow Christ in Believers Baptism as a demonstration that I had trusted Christ personally.
Do you know your beloved late [URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMrKet8S1qA]]]Pope John Paul II kissed the Quran[/URL] ? (NO endorsement of those who posted this)
Do you your Catechism states you and Muslims adore the smae God? [URL=http://carm.org/catholic-catechisms-view-muslim-god-wrong]]]CCC 841[/URL] Something even a 5 pt Calvinist can see is quite wrong.
So while I reject Catholicism and your alls counterfeit of the real Mary of the Bible who needed to be saved from her sins like all of us, I find it sickening that Islam wants to dicatate to others what they can and cannot do, like singing in their illegitimate Sharia law zones in London and other places. Why doesn't your College simple expell them? instead of vainly attempting to appease them?
Islam is spewing the Roman Catholic Church out of its mouth. Can't stand the eyes of the Son of Man staring at them as they do their homework or pray to Mecca? Can't bare to look at Mary, the very mother of God, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as they read the Koran? Want to throw them from the fifth floor window of their dorm rooms?
"Denying Muslim students the opportunity for form a student group on campus"
If the shoe were on the other foot, how accommodating would Islam be for Catholic students? An on-campus Catholic group? A large marble statue of Jesus in the middle of the on-campus mosque? Passing out Bibles on campus? Would never happen.
