    HAHAHA. No.

    Here you are saying that Islam is MORE important because "they are required" to pray. So if I belonged to a Christian Sect that demanded daily prayer you think that'd fly?

    No, it wouldn't. Why are people so afraid to demand Muslims adapt to the 21st Century?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I don't why not. The dancing with venomous snakes might be hard to pull off though

    Yeah, it would fly. Just like Jews can wear a yamaka to school, even though it violates the dress code. Unless you wanna deny them that?

    I never said that Islam is more important. I said that the govt. can't infringe on their right to practice their religion. It's not my fault Christians don't have the same requirements in practicing their religion.

    I don't know of any Christian Sect that has the same requirements. But if there was, they would have to be allowed as well. The school shouldn't lead the prayer though for either religion.

    I'm not afraid of anything here.

    And the OP simply decried those who claim the mantle of Christianity and do un-Christian things - while simlutaneously praising a Christian and members of a Baptist Church.

    But, you're right, we're just steps away from throwing Christains before the lions because I said it's most likely some punk-assed kids who did this. Obviously, that makes me, the Episcopal, a bigot against Christians.
    Its OK man...really...I get you. So from now on...when there is an article about a someone that spreads AIDS intentionally through unsafe sex practices, we'll just accept that you are going to say...well what do you expect...thats what queers do. And when a woman is found raped in a bad part of town we should just say...well...thats black folks for ya. And when some inane crazed fool commits some act of eco terror...well...ya know...we got good evidence that thats what those idiot libs do. Oh...and when 12 year old schoolgirls are found raped and beheaded in India...well...we can just accept that THATS what MUSLIMS do after all...so it makes sense to accuse them...
    Yep...bigotry and stereotyping is FUN.

    Edit: My bad...in keeping context with the thread, we SHOULD be celebrating the acts of the 'good' representatives of all the groups...not the stereotypical bad 'normal' representatives.

    Sounds pretty scary. I think you may be exaggerating a bit though.

    FYI the "communist" ACLU has defended the rights of Christians:

    GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida filed a federal lawsuit today against the Alachua County School District charging that school administrators unlawfully censored students’ free speech on multiple occasions when high school, middle school and elementary school students were suspended and/or threatened with suspension for wearing tee shirts promoting their religious beliefs about Christianity and Islam in school and at school events earlier this school year.

    Such bull**** IT. Gov't can't infringe cause "they are required to pray". But voluntary prayer can be infringed on.

    Dance dance, we all know the truth, you're scared ****less of being seen as "Intolerant" of Islam. So much so you've concocted this gradeschool logic loop for why it's okay to let Islamic Students use Gov't land and time to pray but ban that from Christians.

    Sad really, but what can I say, for you it's idealogy over honesty.

    Is anyone being forced to the daily prayers of Muslims or even listen to them?
