nmrsnr: For Fark's sake, is it really that hard NOT to pray at a school function?
geek_mars: I'm an atheist and generally support the AHA, however, in this instance, I think they might be over-doing it.FTFA: They asked a judge to block Mountain View Elementary from holding ceremonies at a chapel at North Greenville University, a Southern Baptist-affiliated school, and allowing student-led prayers.If it were faculty or administration led prayers, that would be one thing, but if the students want to lead prayers, denying them the right to do so seems like it would be an infringement on their religious liberties. If the AHA were to limit their suit to the issue of the location, that would be one thing, but as long as the student-led prayers don't require participation by those who do not with to participate, I don't see the problem.
s2s2s2: qorkfiend: Did you read the article? No? Then STFU and GTFO.FTFA: The plaintiffs alleged that the district infringed upon their First Amendment Establishment Clause by holding Mountain View's graduation ceremony at a religious venue and incorporating prayer as a part of the official graduation program, according to court filings.That's what I'm talking bout. Will no STFU, nor GTFO. Feel free to CTIB.
s2s2s2: Did the government found the church? Did the school? No?
s2s2s2: whidbey: Dude this doesn't even make sense. Are you even pro or against the position taken in the article?Always about sides with you. What do you have against "levels"?
vpb: I think you're trying too hard.
