The administrators at a Wyoming high school canceled America Pride Day which was to take place as part of homecoming because they didn’t want to offend the foreigners in school, who are predominantly Hispanic.
Some only arrived a month ago, said the activities director. Isn’t that more of a reason to get them right into the pride we feel as Americans or is that taboo?
The administrators didn’t want the foreign students to be left out so they left out the Americans. They’ve got it all wrong. This could have been a uniting event.
The administrators were concerned the foreigners would feel badly. Feel badly to be in America?
In its latest effort to protect Muslim rights in the United States the Obama Justice Department is suing an Illinois town for denying a rezoning application to convert an office building into an Islamic temple.
Failing to approve plans for the Islamic worship center violates a 2000 law known as the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA), according to a Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit filed this week in federal court. The accused are lawmakers in Des Plaines, a Chicago suburb with a population of about 60,000. In 2013 the Des Plaines City Council voted 5-3 to reject a rezoning request made by the American Islamic Center (AIC) to make a vacant office building in a manufacturing zone to an institutional zone that would allow a worship center.
