Naturally, the Complaint is Not from a Muslim Student, but from a Professor at a Rival Insitution

Complaint says crosses at Catholic school offensive, prevent Muslim prayers

Early in my pedagogical career I taught at a yeshiva, which is a school used primarily for rabbinical training in the orthodox tradition.  As such, I was required to wear a yarmulke in the classroom.  It never occurred to me to expect them to conform to my expectations and to attempt to muscle it through the already over-loaded courts system.
