A Less Appealing Call

The latest conservative Christian freakout is over a single weekly Muslim call to prayer issuing from the bell tower of Duke University's non-denominational chapel. The latest news is that the amplified call to prayer has been cancelled, leaving Duke University's 700-odd Muslim students to prick up their ears.

Personally, I don't see the threat to a all to prayer resounding over the campus... the Friday 1PM Call to Prayer is a hell of a lot less appealing to a typical college student than the Saturday 3AM Call to Booty.

Even if public displays of racism are frowned upon in modern society, the world still loves a good sectarian hatred...

Or even the Friday 5 PM call to happy hour.
