Reader comment on item: Spreading Islam in American Public Schools

Submitted by David M. Frost (United States), Feb 28, 2005 at 14:17

Leaving aside the conflict between Islam and the West, the fact is that, as described in the article, this is an intolerable violation of the First Amendment. Children should not be instructed in "how to pray" during their public school hours. Moreover, they should certainly not be instructed "how to pray" in a manner of which their parents would not approve at ANY time.
