5Cats I don't mean to be callous here but I`m simply going to have to conclude that this story is heresay. Course public schools run into huge problems trying to cater to every religion imaginable (and remember what L Ron Hubbard`s life story taught us), this is nothing more than an extension of that lunacy.

@Cajun: Sorry I couldn't find it. It was a public school. They said it was "cultural" and NOT "religion" and that`s why it was OK. :rolleyes: And yeah, 80% of the students were Muslim, the story said. But it wasn`t one of the MANY private Muslim schools in Michigan.

That particular school has a huge Muslim majority.
I'm going to go out on a limb guess that it`s actually a private muslim school. If that`s the case then there`s no issue as they get to set the rules. May seem extreme but I`ll let the parents sort that issue out.

@Cajun: lolz! Which one? The Muslim's getting an in school Mosgue: is not a controversy, it`s the school`s policy. That particular school has a huge Muslim majority.
Sorry, I spent a lot of time looking but couldn`t find it. The site has -literally- NO search functions.
The Christians asking for classrooms? Usually ends in the students getting suspended. Praying in the hallway, silently? Suspended. Of course there are probably LOTS of more tolerant schools, but they don`t "make the news" eh?
In Winnipeg: The school built a "smoking shack" so underage students could smoke on school grounds and not freeze their butts off... Of course the teachers are NOT allowed to smoke on school property...

Crakr that Atheist Communist Legal Union is the very group that is: -Lobbying AGAINST the president's "right" to use drones -Lobbying AGAINST CISPA -Advocated for the rights of blacks and colored people -Strongly denounce Joseph McCarthy`s extremist anticommunism policies.
