Update on School Prayer in New Jersey

Talk about a bunch of gutless wonders!  The United States Supreme Court latest decision not to hear the case of the football coach, at a New Jersey High School, who just wanted a moment of silent reflection before a game shows just how far to the left this country has turned!   What are these idiots thinking about?

Just last week we learned that the Wayne, New Jersey public school system has made special arrangements so Muslim children can interrupt class time and pray in school.  Of course no special arrangements have been for Catholic children.  Jewish children have not been given any special place to pray.  The Baptistchildren will just have to suck it up and not pray.  Protestant kids, not a chance at prayer.  Nope, just the Muslim children.

So here are the new rules for praying in the state of New Jersey.  If you are a coach of a sports team, you better not be found bowing your head to ask that the children under your leadership not be hurt while participating in athletic competition.   No matter what sport you are coaching, what values you are teaching or the spirit of achievement you are trying to instill into the youth under your tutelage will make no difference to us.  Just make sure you are not praying!

Of course, we do have a slightly different set of rules for the Muslim coaches.  If you are the coach of the local Al-Qaeda youth suicide squad, you can pray.  You can pray that your young bombers will kill as many of the infidels as possible.  You can pray that the result of these bombings will be the death of many woman and children.  You can pray that your “athletes” will be rewarded with their 72 virgins.  You can pray that your efforts will result in the extermination of all Jewish people. 

To all of the idiots in Trenton, why can’t at least one of you stand up and be heard on this issue?  Don’t one of you have a set of balls?  Well, just remember, come November, we are going to get rid of you cowards, but until then, don’t forget, “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

Should Muslims Be Allowed To Pray In Public Schools?

What, the only religion that can pray in public schools are Muslims!

You want mad, now I am really mad! Check this out, the only people who can pray in school now are Muslims! Read this about Wayne, NJ:WAYNE — Four students knelt on a classroom floor during lunch at the Albert Payson Terhune Elementary School today and performed the afternoon Muslim prayer ritual.
It was the first time the students had prayed in the school during school hours. And it may end a controversy over what arrangement the district should make to ensure the children’s constitutionally protected right to exercise their religion during school hours.

 

School parent Rola Awwad has been seeking a private place for her 10-year-old son, Adam, to pray in school since the fall. The district offered to let him pray at recess — either outside or in classroom while his classmates are there. At first, Awwad called the offer “unacceptable,” and the situation attracted attention from Muslim advocates who suggested bringing the issue to the state for resolution.

But Adam decided on his own to pray at lunch, Awwad said. He joined three friends today in a classroom with other students present. They performed the ritual in the back of a room.

“If it continues like this, it will be very nice,’’ Awwad said.

She said her 7-year-old daughter, Amana, also prayed in her second grade class, and she thanked the teacher for the arrangement.

Her son had worried other students would make fun of him if they watched him pray, but schools Superintendent John Sico Jr. assured her the district wouldn’t let that happen. As the students prayed, classmates played games, he said.

Sico said he consulted the Imam of the Islamic Center of Passaic County and felt he received support for his position.

Imam Mohammad Qatanani told The Record he had had a good talk with Sico and will meet with Mrs. Awwad today “to understand the issue from her side more.”

“As far as I am concerned the issue is resolved,’’ Sico said. “We did the right thing. The kids did the right thing. No one was making fun.’’

Afsheen Shamsi, spokeswoman for the Council on American Islamic Relations, which has intervened with the district on Awwad’s behalf said the accommodation was a correct step.

“It’s a question of finding the right balance and making sure the student is comfortable and the district is comfortable,’’ she said.

She said CAIR had considered bringing the issue before the state Board of Education. But Awwad said she wants to wait and see if the accommodation continues to work for her children.

All students are constitutionally guaranteed the right to pray during the school day as long as it doesn’t interfere with learning. Muslims pray five times a day to reaffirm their faith and submit to follow divine commandments. The prayer is said during prescribed times; in the fall, when clocks roll back at the end of daylight savings time, the afternoon prayer must be said during the school day, Awwad explained.

Federal guidelines say schools can’t prevent students from praying during school, but they can’t sponsor religious activities or lead students in prayer. For instance, those guidelines specifically mention a student’s right to quietly read the Bible during lunch. But they are not clear on what action to take when the religious expression is more demonstrative, as it is in Adam’s case….

How about the Catholic children, Jewish children, Protestant children? What, you have to be a member of religion that encourages it’s members to kill non-believers? We bend over for these people to pray while our children are denied this basic right?  Where the crap is the ACLU? What the hell is this country coming to? What a joke!
