Catholic school hosts terror-tied group.
Mother of Mercy High school has upset their student’s parents by hosting a Ramadan event with CAIR, an interfaith Iftar dinner. Here’s their link…… which may not be up for long.
Pharmer (who is generally respectful of religious sensibilities) notes that the parents were asked to bring a dish to share, but not to make sure that it’s Halal, (e.g. PORK free).
The parents’ difficulty stems from the ties which CAIR has with terrorist groups, the recognition of this by the FBI and the Justice department, revocation of non-profit status by the IRS for failing to disclose its funding sources, etcetera. This dinner is not the first collaboration of Mother of Mercy High School with CAIR.
The school secretary was unaware of CAIR’s “extracurricular activities”, and referred media to the school principal, Diane Laake, who did not return phone calls.
It’s not a feel good time for Mother of Mercy HS, which is on the West side of Cincinnati, which is Steve Chabot country.
Pharmer has had related difficulties with her kids’ Catholic elementary school, sending kids to work with groups which promote things antithetical to the religion of the students.
(It’s safer for the kids to be picking berries on a Washington farm.) 😉
There are NO difficulties here with the school hosting an interfaith event. Surely a Muslim group which is not overtly tied to the funding of terrorism could have been found to collaborate on such a thing.
Pharmer congratulates the students parents who have brought public attention to this matter.
If they were done with THIS, they’d change their name.
What happened when CAIR sued Anti-CAIR ? CAIR did not seem eager to go through the discovery process. The suit was dismissed.
Poll: American Muslims DON’T CARE for CAIR – so it should not be so hard for Mother of Mercy HS to find less controversial pals.
