Choosing sides

The Wall Street Journal today discusses Belgium's ruling Socialist-Liberal coalition which banned crucifixes from government buildings. Now, however, in a surprising show of religious sensitivity, Belgium police officers are barred from eating or drinking on the streets during Ramadan.

This is reminiscent of New Jersey public schools which ,allowed Muslims to use an empty classroom for prayer while denying similar privileges to other religions.
