    The no-religious-accessory rule is just one of them. It's not personal. It's just really dumb.
    You seriously believe "it's not personal"???

    Then what rational reason could there possibly be for such a "dumb rule"?!

    I've always been fascinated with "crazy person stylized punctuation". Where does it come from? I know its a common trait of hyper partisan conservatives but why? MMC uses the same crazy tapping among a few others on here. The religious variant capitalizes words that one feels are exceptionally important, you don't seem to adhere to this.

    I wonder how the Conservatives here would be reacting if instead of this being a Christian wearing a Crucifix, it was instead a Muslim wearing a Crescent Moon or jeweled "Takbir". The Takbir is the Muslim holy saying "Allahu Ahkbar" or "God is Great".

The point is for some people (it seems you're one of them) the fact of that noise being the sound of praying makes the question of disruptiveness more complicated than it really is.
    Ok, I am trying to bring this back around....The term "disruptive" has a specific meaning. If you are in a classroom than the standard can be pretty low, but as we have seen on university campuses before, some of these prayer meetings were in dorm room behind closed doors, and broken up by so called tolerance, or diversity enforcers...I am thinking that this so called standard is a rouse.

    Liberals seem to be quite comfortable with Selective Tolerance_

    I don't recall any of them ever making an excuse or apology for it_

    I figured it must be some kind of guilt-trip; you know how liberals are_

    Do you think the hijab should be banned in public? How about a kafiyeh?
