Prayer – Coming to a School Near You – But Only for Muslims

common sense

Obama’s new initiative to accommodate Muslims is now coming to fruition at at least one public school.

I can’t help but think that some people are missing the point here. This article says that some people are upset because they remember the institution as a “Christian” institution.

For one thing, quit labeling people into convenient groups and then labeling the institution in the name of the majority group. Isn’t that just collectivism? I thought that in the United States we focused on individual achievement and responsibility. Also, there’s no such thing as a “Christian institution” unless it specifies that it’s exclusively for Christians. If it isn’t intended for and  exclusive to Christians, it’s just a place where different groups of people go and the majority of them happen to claim the title of “Christian”. But anyway, now that I got that out of my system…

…Isn’t the point really that government facilities shouldn’t be catering to any religious preference? Should the school be a tool of religions and favor groups of one religion over groups of another religion? What would be wrong with the school just teaching things like Math and Science and other academics classes???

Muslim Prayer Coming to a School Near You

05/30/13

A high school near Washington DC has taken a rare step of accommodating Muslim prayer during class hours. Parkdale High School now allows a handful of its students to be excused to pray. The decision has made some Christian staffers “unhappy”.

Prince George County High School Principal Cheryl J. Logan said the initiative is in response to the “needs of the growing Muslim community,” the Washington Post reported. To be able to leave class each day all you need is a parental permission and high grades, Logan said. Currently, about 10 Muslim students have earned the right to pray, and are reportedly allowed eight minutes each day for a joint prayer on campus. Another high school student is working hard to raise his grades to join the group, all of whom belong to Muslim Students’ Association, Logan said. It is hoped that allowing prayer will motivate Muslim students to improve their overall school performance. The move has already upset several of the school’s Christian staffers, many of whom remember when the school was a Christian institution.
