Texas Wesleyan University Offers Prayer Room for Muslim Students
by Heather Clark
Controversy is stirring over a recent news report surrounding a special prayer room at Texas Wesleyan University that was established at the request of a Muslim student group.
The Rambler, the student publication for the university, published an article on November 19th about the prayer room, explaining its purpose, the story behind its inception and its uses.
"The reasons for this (prayer room) are twofold," Chaplain Dr. Robert K. Flowers told the publication. "One, to show hospitality to our foreign students and, two, our campus needs to be open and tolerant of other faith traditions whether it is Islam, Hindu, Jewish, or otherwise."
