well, actually you are correct, if Christians can put up a Christmas tree in the school or sing Christmas songs, why should the Islamic religion have the right to have their own room for privacy during their montly fast. The separation of church and state has been burned to it's bridges and yet, it is not in the constitution but in Russia. In fact, the Islamic religion have their own schools in the states, so why are they not attending their own schools, the fact is, they want attention and they want to see how far the education department is going sway their way without getting lawsuits.
