Prayer a part of public school life: Separation of Mosque and State?

Demo prayers, in your face!


“We do it because our parents want us to,” fourth-grader Ayan Artan said. “It’s important.”

 This is wrong. Muslims do not have to pray during school; they can make it up before or after class. Islamic supremacism on the march. Separation of church and state. Separation of mosque and state.
“The issue of students praying in school has come up a number of times this year, in part, because we have an increasing number of students who practice the Islam faith, many of whom are Somali students,” said Barbara Dorff, director of student services for the district. “But it is our responsibility to find a private place for these students to pray and to allow them to pray.”
Why is it the school’s responsibility? If the children are so religious, why aren’t they in madrassa?
