John Banzhaf's Personal War on Catholic University

Some months ago, Catholic University President John Garvey announced the school would return to a single-sex dorm policy. Parents rejoiced, except for those parents who were surprised there were co-ed dorms on the CUA campus in the first place. Catholics behaving like Catholics again: whoopee!

American University law professor John Banzhaf is challenging the move in court, claiming it's a human rights violation. Because we all know that human rights include life, liberty, property, free speech, free exercise of religion and the super-duper solemnest right to have strangers of the opposite sex in your dorm. (And if your casual hook-up doesn't live in the room right next to yours, how ever could you find him or her?) CUA's alumni magazine has an update on that suit.

Now Banzhaf's opened another front against CUA, this time taking up the cause of Muslim students at the school who say that crosses in the classrooms and other spaces at the University make them uncomfortable. Banzhaf says they're a display of "malice."
Banzhaf said some Muslim students were particularly offended because they had to meditate in the school’s chapels “and at the cathedral that looms over the entire campus – the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.”
So the true purpose of this suit is to tear down the cathedral, I take it?

Please to note that CUA has released a statement saying NO Muslim students have complained. That's important, because the national press behaves as if there are a bunch of Muslim agitators involved, which there aren't. This is a manufacture on Banzhaf's part. President Garvey says Banzhaf is using Muslims.
I regret very much that our Muslim students have been used as pawns in a manufactured controversy,” said John Garvey, president of Catholic University
These are not serious charges, and in a simpler time would have been dismissed out of town and Banzhaf, who's made a career out of harassment suits to advance his Progressive agenda, would be laughed out of town and snubbed at dinner parties rather than lionized in press coverage across the country.

But we are in the new America, where free speech and free exercise do not exist, or at least some are more equal than others in that respect. Bullies are permitted to harass with nuisance lawsuits people and institutions who disagree with them, and Banzhaf's personal two-minute hate is treated with the respect he shows no one.

Banzhaf, by the way, is the guy behind the concept of "passive smoking" --or at least its legal recognition, and is anti-soda and other such things. He was once dubbed, "The man who wants to sue America."
