Hey, Militant atheists! Will you be suing anyone over THIS? Or do you save your energy for suppression of Christianity?
Meet you at the pole? Outrageous! Shameful! A violation of the Separation of Church and State.
But meet you around the Muslim call to prayer 5 times a day?
There has been some pushback.
In a letter Friday to the the Frisco Independent School District, the Texas attorney general’s office outlined the legal concerns over the prayer room, indicating it may violate the First Amendment’s protection of religious liberty.
“Liberty High School’s policy should be neutral toward religion,” the letter from Deputy Attorney General Andrew Leonie to Superintendent Jeremy Lyons said. “However, it appears that students are being treated different based on their religious beliefs. Such a practice, of course, is irreconcilable with our nation’s enduring commitment to religious liberty.”
The letter congratulates the school’s effort to create an environment where students can practice their religion, and the high school’s various student-led religious groups. “Your willingness to guarantee the freedom of student-led religious groups is laudable,” the letter states, but also points out the words of the U.S. Supreme Court: ‘One religious denomination cannot be officially preferred over another.’”
“Reports from Liberty’s news site indicate that the prayer room is not available to students of all faiths. Instead, it appears that the prayer room is ‘dedicated to the religious needs of some students,’ namely those who practice Islam,” the letter reads.
The school’s news site, in its coverage of the prayer room, interviewed the principal of Liberty High School. — DailyCaller
Will Catholics be offered space for Confessionals, too? If not, why not? Can’t have it both ways.
