Quinn Pushes for Religious Tolerance, Signs Bill For Religious Students

Governor Pat Quinn is calling for greater tolerance of religious differences, as he condemns recent incidents that targeted Muslim and Sikh houses of worship in Illinois and neighboring states.


Quinn says recent crimes, including the mass shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin and incidents that caused property damage at a mosque and an Islamic school near Chicago, are a violation of the core constitutional principle of freedom of religion.


During his remarks at a Ramadan observance in Bridgeview, Quinn also signed legislation allowing college students to receive alternate assignments when their schoolwork conflicts with religious holidays.
