‘More Front than Blackpool’ – Muslim students whine about Christmas at a Catholic college

Loyola University Chicago where Muslim students are whining that this Catholic college is a bit too Catholic in character


The British phrase ‘more front than Blackpool’ is used to describe someone with a most tremendous amount of chutzpah or cheek, by comparing them to the notably long beach front area that characterises the seaside town of Blackpool. There was little choice for me but to use this phrase when I read this particular story from Truth Revolt about some Muslim students who are seriously taking the piss. These Muslims, who make up about 5% of the student population of a college that is run by Catholics and has a large number of Christian students are getting all arsey about the college’s Christmas celebrations. They are basically whining that the Christmas preparations are a bit too, well, Christmas-y. What a bunch of arrogant piss taking bastards this particular lot of screeching savages are.

Here’s part of the Truth Revolt article about the Islamic grinches who want to steal Christmas from the Christians at a college that is 60% Catholic and also with a large number of other Christians registered as students.

Truth Revolt said:

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.

For someone who lives far away and doesn’t have the opportunity to meet up with family, I would say making Loyola’s Eid as festive as possible would be great so that [Muslim students] can feel connected with their heritage and with their religion,” said Ahmed. “I think if the leadership is exposed to the Muslim voice, the voice who wants to make campus more festive for other holidays, I think that’s definitely one step.”

Whinge, whinge, whine, whine, moan, moan, do we ever hear anything but from the permanently offended and put out members of the grossly misnamed ‘religion of peace’? I’m completely astonished by the arrogance and cheek of these Muslim students. They signed up for a Catholic college, knowing it was a Catholic college and would be run along Catholic lines. The members of other Christian denominations who attend this college know and understand that and so do the Jewish students, but they just get on and accept that a Catholic college will have a Catholic ethos. Not so our Bearded Muslim friends from the special needs religion of violence called Islam. Even though they are a tiny minority of the student population at the college, they are still not averse to making demands for special treatment and for the Catholic college to be a little less Catholic.

They knew what they signed up for and being a minority at a college where the majority do not share your faith requires intelligent compromise by the minority faith individual and an acceptance that you and your religion cannot dominate this space. Sadly the idea of ‘compromise’ and ‘acceptance’ seems to have passed the Muslims of Loyola University by and they have exposed their intolerance to the world by demanding that a Catholic college’s Christmas celebrations be marred by ‘incorporating the Muslim voice’. If they want to have their voices as the loudest in the room, which seems quite possible by the tone of the whining coming from these Muslims, then may make a suggestion? They could, if they are not happy with Loyala University, remove themselves from the college and from the United States and travel to some godforsaken Islamic hell hole and attend college there. They are obviously not happy there so why shouldn’t they take off to some place where they will be happy as I’m sure that people of other faiths would be glad to see them and their whining depart from America’s shores and never return.
