"The Signs of the Times"

U.S. Catholic universities have become very secular and liberal, to the point of welcoming anti-life, anti-family, homosexualist forces. And now this. Prayer rooms for Muslim students and Islamic chaplains to minister to them? What insanity is this?! They are supposed to be Catholic institutions. They already allowed the Muslims to study there; do they have to provide strong Islamic support? Muslims are more and more overwhelming the west with their growing presence in their societies. Now we are going to see the infiltration happening in the schools. The welcoming posture can only encourage more Muslims to enroll in Catholic universities.

But then, in every dark cloud there is a silver lining. On many aspects, including pro-life, pro-family and sexual conservatism, the Muslims have the same mind as true Catholics. So in bending backwards to the Muslims, these Catholic universities are also restricting men-women interaction in dorms, prohibiting sex before marriage, looking to daily prayer and periodic fasting. What a crazy world! In this case, the Muslims are the partners of pro-lifers in fighting the secular and liberal culture pervading in the universities.

All these happen because such Catholic universities are confused about their true identity. If only they will be truly Catholic, then there would be no such difficulties.

U. S. Catholic universities U.S. Catholic universities seeing influx of Muslim students - Washington Post

In the past few years, enrollment of Muslim students has spiked at Catholic campuses across the country. Last year, Catholic colleges had an even higher percentage of Muslim students than the average four-year institution in the United States. The influx has astonished and sometimes befuddled administrators.

Some Catholic campuses are creating prayer rooms for new Muslim students and hiring Islamic chaplains to minister to them. Others are unsure how to adapt. One of the sharpest increases in Muslims students has been at Catholic University in Northeast Washington. Echoing Islam’s conservative culture, the school separates men and women in its dorms and imposes visiting hours. The university prohibits sex before marriage. Daily prayer and periodic fasting are common concepts.
