A time and a place for everything. Religion in public schools is a recipe for prejudice and seperation. Kids just need to learn their ABCs in public schools, if parents want to teach kids a religion we have plenty of churches, temples, and mosques for doing that.

We live in a secular free society where everyone is allowed to worship and pray their own way, without exceptions or prejudice, how rare is that? In an Islamic country those choice's do not exist, a total lack of respect for one an others beliefs cannot be catered to in America. Also allowing prefered treatment to muslims is ridiculous, no one else has had that done for them.

It becomes a night mare when everyone wants what the other one is getting, but wants it their way. Just don't start it and it won't happen, if you start it, kids are too caught up in their own way and never get around to learning their ABCs..
