Story 1: A chaplain at Georgetown University in Washington DC threatened to resign if the school went through with plans to remove crucifixes from it's classrooms -- a move toward a policy of tolerance at the once Catholic school. No surprise there.
The chaplain is Muslim.
Story 2: From the Cincinnatti Enquirer interview with Karen Dabdoub, president of the Council on American-Islamic Relations:
Who are we fooling? The Jews donÂ’t put up a tree for Hanukah; the Muslims donÂ’t put up a tree for Ramadan. It doesnÂ’t take away from my celebration of my holiday for other people to celebrate their holiday. I donÂ’t want anybodyÂ’s holidays to be watered-down. I think theyÂ’re all wonderful.
Now that's tolerance. I don't have any serious awards that I give out, or Ms Dabdoub would get one. BIG thanks to GetReligion for this one.
