The Boston Herald reports:
Six times a week, Harvard kicks all the guys out of the Quadrangle Recreational Athletic Center at the request of the Harvard Islamic Society. This is to accommodate those female Muslim students whose faith wonâ€™t let them work out in front of men.
In the old days, Harvard would have laughed if some Catholic or evangelical mother urged â€œgirls-onlyâ€ campus workouts in the name of modesty. Today, Harvard happily implements Sharia swim times in the name of Mohammed.
At Harvard, thatâ€™s called progress.
When I asked Harvard spokesman Bob Mitchell about this new Sharia-friendly policy, he denied that they were banning anyone. â€œNo, no,â€ he told me, â€œweâ€™re permitting women to work out in an environment that accommodates their religion.â€
By banning all men from the facility, right?
â€œItâ€™s not â€˜banning,â€™ â€ he insisted. â€œWeâ€™re allowing, weâ€™re accommodating people.â€
Muezzins will soon be summoning the faithful to prayer from towers at Harvard like this one, too, as another “accommodation.”
