Kurt,

"I completely do not like that my hard-earned money is used to advance any specific religious or ethnic philosophy."

The academy is secular, she doesn't intend to nor has she ever taught any religious philosophy in her classes.

"You are lying and you know it." Sure, uh huh, whatever you say.

"CAIR by the virtue of its name is an organization devoted to advancing Islamic purposes. [sic] By no stretch of imagination CAIR is a secular organization following a global cause." CAIR is an American organization devoted to improving inter-faith communications and eliminating the kind of discrimination that seems to have invaded your mind. Good thing they are around, huh? I never claimed they were global (not that this makes any difference).

"Once again, it is immoral to switch between US Constitution and Sharia on convenience." Huh? The constitution is the law of this land. Sharia has nothing to do with it.

If you agenda is to promulgate Islam, you should not fall back on what US constitution guarantees or does not guarantee. It's not. Sharia law (or any religious law for that matter) will NEVER be the law here in America.

"Why not if her mission has shifted." It hasn't, and never did. The only thing you took offense at was a stupid T-shirt. There never should have been this kind of controversy. And, may I remind you that the Federal Equal-Opportunity Employment Commission agrees with me.

BTW. I am not muslim and I never will be.

Submitting....
