Germany’s Top Court Rules Muslim Schoolgirls Must Join Swimming Lessons. This follows a proposed ban on full-face Muslim veils.

Reuters reports:
Germany’s highest court ruled on Wednesday that ultra-conservative Muslim girls must take part in mixed swimming classes at school, finding against an 11-year-old pupil who had argued that even wearing a burkini, or full-body swimsuit, breached Islamic dress codes.

The Constitutional Court in Karlsruhe rejected an appeal by the girl’s parents that she should be excused the classes because a burkini did not conform with Islam’s ethic of decency, German media reported.

A spokesman for the court could not be reached for comment.

Germany is in the grip of a heated public debate about the role of Islam in society as it seeks to integrate more than a million mainly Muslim asylum seekers fleeing war and persecution who have entered this year and last.

Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose conservatives have been punished at the polls in regional elections by voters angry at her open-door policy, on Tuesday proposed a ban on full-face Muslim veils.

Her Christian Democrats, who have been bleeding support to the AfD, a populist party that says Islam is incompatible with the constitution, toughened their tone on integrating migrants at a party conference this week.
Wouldn't muslims be happier somewhere else?

Faust Says Harvard Will Not Be a 'Sanctuary Campus' . Harvard President Says No to "Sanctuary " Label.

The Harvard Crimson reports:
University President Drew G. Faust said Harvard will not designate itself a “sanctuary campus” at a Faculty of Arts and Sciences meeting held Tuesday afternoon in the Science Center.

Faust said she is worried calling Harvard a "sanctuary campus," a term she argued has no legal significance, could actually further endanger undocumented students at Harvard. She said she has met with members of Congress and other federal officials to discuss protections for undocumented students .

"It also risks drawing special attention to the students in ways that could put their status in greater jeopardy," Faust said. "I believe it would endanger, rather than protect, our students, and that is not something I am willing for this institution to do."

Faust spoke on the subject in response to questions history professor Walter Johnson raised during the meeting. He asked what steps the University will take to protect its undocumented students and other minority groups he said are threatened by President-elect Donald Trump’s proposed policies.

Johnson urged Faust to support labeling Harvard a sanctuary campus, citing the University’s global prominence and insisting the decision presented an opportunity for Harvard to demonstrate moral leadership.
Imagine that.

Housing groups sue Fannie Mae over foreclosed Bay Area properties in communities of color

The San Jose Mercury News reports:
A coalition of fair housing groups has sued Fannie Mae, the government-backed housing lender, for failure to maintain and market its foreclosed properties in predominately African-American and Latino neighborhoods in four metropolitan areas, including Oakland and Richmond.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in federal district court in San Francisco, alleges that Fannie Mae engaged in a pattern of discrimination by allowing foreclosed properties to languish without upkeep that kept the homes unpurchased, attracted vandalism and crime and kept property values lower than they otherwise would be.

In comparison, foreclosed properties in predominately white neighborhoods were more carefully tended, with garbage thrown out, landscaping trimmed and homes properly secured, according to the suit.

“This is one more step in the pattern that we’ve seen where lenders divest communities of color of equity — first by denying loans to people of color, then targeting them for unaffordable loans, then foreclosing on them and finally failing to maintain and market those homes,” said Caroline Peattie, executive director of Fair Housing Advocates of Northern California, the lead plaintiff of the lawsuit, in a statement.
If only loans were made with 50% down: no one could yell anything but "collateral".

The Supreme Court oral argument that cost Democrats the presidency

The Washington Post reports:
The presidential election was so close that many factors were “but-for” causes of Donald Trump’s victory. One that’s been mostly overlooked is Trump’s surprising success with religious voters. According to exit polls, Trump received 81 percent of the white evangelical Christian vote, and Hillary Clinton only 16 percent. Trump did significantly better than the overtly religious Mitt Romney and the overtly evangelical George W. Bush. He likely over-performed among other theologically conservative voters, such as traditionalist Catholics, as well. Not bad for a thrice-married adulterer of no discernible faith.

To what can we attribute Trump’s success? The most logical answer is that religious traditionalists felt that their religious liberty was under assault from liberals, and they therefore had to hold their noses and vote for Trump.
There's more:
In short, many religious Christians of a traditionalist bent believed that liberals not only reduce their deeply held beliefs to bigotry, but want to run them out of their jobs, close down their stores and undermine their institutions. When I first posted about this on Facebook, I wrote that I hope liberals really enjoyed running Brendan Eich out of his job and closing down the Sweet Cakes bakery, because it cost them the Supreme Court. I’ll add now that I hope Verrilli enjoyed putting the fear of government into the God-fearing because it cost his party the election.

U.S. Workplace English Rules Discriminatory, Foreign Language Demands Aren’t

Judicial Watch reports:
Requiring employees in the United States to speak a foreign language is not discriminatory but forcing them to speak English violates federal law under a sweeping order issued by the Obama administration to crack down on “national origin discrimination” in the workplace. The government’s new enforcement guidelines state that bilingual requirements don’t meet discrimination claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act but English-only rules do because they’re restrictive language policies.

The administration asserts that the new rules, which cover a broad range of scenarios that could get employers in trouble, were created because the American workforce is “increasingly ethnically diverse.” The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the federal agency that enforces the nation’s workplace discrimination laws, made them public a few days ago. “The increased cultural diversity of today’s workplaces presents new and evolving issues with respect to Title VII’s protection against national origin discrimination,” the agency writes in the lengthy document. “This enforcement guidance will assist EEOC staff in their investigation of national origin discrimination charges and provide information for applicants, employees, and employers to understand their respective rights and responsibilities under Title VII.”

Two years ago, the administration laid the foundation for the new measures by suing a private American business for discriminating against Hispanic and Asian employees because they didn’t speak English on the job. The case involved a Green Bay Wisconsin metal and plastic manufacturer that fired a group of Hmong and Hispanic workers over their English skills. Forcing employees to speak English in the U.S. violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the EEOC claimed in its lawsuit. That’s because the Civil Rights Act protects employees from discrimination based on national origin, which includes the linguistic characteristics of a national origin group. Therefore, the EEOC argued, foreigners have the right to speak their native language even during work hours at an American company that requires English.

Now the agency has created official federal rules to support this absurd theory as well as other innovative discrimination categories, including “multiple protected bases.” This is a seldom recognized but potent Molotov cocktail of prejudice based on race, color and religion. As an example, the new rules mention discrimination against Middle Easterners perceived to “follow particular religious practices.” Among the amusing hypotheticals embedded in the rules is an Egyptian named Thomas who alleges he was harassed by his coworkers about his Arab ethnicity and Islam. “Thomas’ charge should assert national origin, race and religious discrimination,” the EEOC writes, referring to its new “multiple protected bases” category. The agency reassures that it will protect Middle Easterners, stating that “Title VII prohibits employment discrimination based on the perception that someone is from the Middle East or is of Arab ethnicity, regardless of how she identifies herself or whether she is, in fact, from one or more Middle Eastern countries or ethnically Arab.”

Employers that use Social Security requirements to screen applicants are warned that they may be charged with discrimination because it disproportionately eliminates individuals of a certain national origin and has a disparate impact based on national origin.

Ed Secretary John King: Homeschooling deprives kids

The American Thinker reports:
Decades of positive results from homeschool families still haven't stopped their critics from repeating outdated, debunked myths. Education Secretary John King recently told an audience he worries that most homeschool students aren't "getting the range of options that are good for all kids." He went on to state that he is concerned that homeschool students are not getting the "rapid instructional experience they would get in school" unless parents are "very intentional about it."

King must not have seen the recent report by the National Home Education Research Institute showing that homeschool students outperform their peers by an average of 40 percent on the SAT. If he had, he probably wouldn't have joined the countless politicians, bureaucrats, teacher unions, and lobbyists who insist that the government knows how to educate children better than their own parents. Despite government's best efforts to drive it out of existence, homeschooling is more popular than ever as generations of success stories prove the benefits of tailoring education to a child's needs.

An article , well worth your time.
