Interfaith Coalition Wants Muslim Prayer Out of Toronto Schools

Hindus, Christians, and Jews are finally banding together behind a common cause. Unfortunately for Muslims in Toronto, the cause is them.

An interfaith coalition — whose less peaceable elements include the Jewish Defense League and Canada’s right-wing Christian Heritage Party — is sounding the alarm over lunchtime Muslim prayer sessions at a Toronto public school, the Toronto Sun reports.

“Enough’s enough, we draw the line here,” G.J. Rancourt of Christian Heritage said at a Monday press conference at Toronto’s Zionist center. “Our holiest celebration is Christmas and we can no longer celebrate it in public schools…Why would (Muslims) impose your values on the rest of us when we’re accommodating?” Security guards were at the ready for Islamic protesters at the center but no one showed up, the Sun reported today.
