Separation of Church and State


You know, you would think The Press and their buddies The Moonbats, who are always looking drive out any trace of prayer in schools, our national institutions, and national traditions would be all over this story: http://www.startribune.com/local/17406054.html

Apparently, the taxpayers of Minnesota, land of 10,000 taxes, are supporting a school that is not only religious, but one teaching the Religion of "Peace" (you know, because if you behead everyone, you have a lot of peaces [sic] )

Oddly, this isn't getting much news. The 10 Commandments in a courthouse freaks out the nut-roots, but a mosque in a public school doesn't even make them blink.

Perhaps its only Christians that are a dangerous influence on The State? The whole purpose of the separation of Church and State was to prevent the government persecuting minority religions, as well as to keep them from forcing citizens into a particular religion.

Consider this quote: "Congress should not establish a religion and enforce the legal observation of it by law, nor compel men to worship God in any manner contrary to their conscience, or that one sect might obtain a pre-eminence, or two combined together, and establish a religion to which they would compel others to conform" (Madison, Annals of Congress, 1789).

So, how does a "public" school that enforces prayer and contains a mosque jive with out separation of Church and State?
