About that Christian prayer room in public school...

Post by Nightshade » Sun Mar 19, 2017 1:51 pm

...I mean, isn't there one to be expected since everyone should be treated equally?

It's just a ROOM NS, not a public sponsorship of a particular religion, it's an accommodation. Unfortunately, we as a nation have long since gone down the accommodation road with other religions. Orthodox Jews have long since gotten public school accommodations for their religion and there are already many sanctioned Christian holidays and clubs, so why not give Muslims a private place to pray daily? They are required to pray 5 times a day, so isn't it better that they do that in a private room away from other students and not in the classroom?

Of course, there's nothing in the Constitution that requires ANY public school to accommodate ANY student who needs time to practice their religion. But if Jews and Christians already have those accommodations, can you deny something similar to Muslim students and still be fair about it?

Anytime there's so much a of a hint of accomodating or teaching any religion in school, I always refer to this...

You're probably thinking it's Richard Spencer- he's the white supremacist idiot.

HA! Got to love how a political move can be called a “pause in politics” irony at its best.
