    NOBODY is preventing students from being religious on campus, they're preventing EVERYBODY from pushing religion during classroom hours. You are crying about something that doesn't even happen.

    Do you ever get tired of being blatantly ignorant? The courts have specifically found that these are legal and nobody bothers them. Of course, you've got such a hate-on for atheists, you continually demonstrate how utterly irrational you can be. That's why people laugh at you.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I think we'd better call it a day as I see our exchanges not going to end well.
    OK, here's this. Madison was the originator of the religious freedoms expression and meaning and was the driving force for religious freedoms in the Constitution. Religious freedom, according to Madison, didn't mean separation of church and state where gov't was devoid of religion.. it meant everyone was allowed to practice their own religious beliefs WITHOUT GOVERNMENT INTERFERENCE. Duh?

    It was added in 1956 at the height of the Cold War, in the bizarre belief that it would ferret out the commies because they wouldn't touch money that referenced God. It was Christian stupidity.

    That's a very, very, very dead argument. DUH! Madison said that he had seen the blood stains on all of Europe caused by hundreds of years religion's need to either act as government or have strong influence of religion.

    If you think Madison was a proponent of religion being a strong component of government...man...you do need to go back to school yourself...and one that teaches the truth about our government's history...along with a heavy dose of science.

    I'm sure you believe Washington chopped down the cherry tree and couldn't lie to his dad about it.

    If separation of church and state doesn't mean devoid of church influence on the state...then we'd be right back where Europe was for hundreds of years.

    When you want to elect a real Muslim...not a made up Muslim...who want's Islam taught in public schools over catholicism or other western religions...call me up and we'll have a chat. Cuz I don't think I'd ever see that day coming from you...and I don't even know you.

    It's really sad that there are so many people around here who are not only absurdly ignorant, they're proud of their ignorance. Their entire worldview demands they maintain their ignorance. Reality gets in the way of faith, so when reality and faith come into conflict, reality gets jettisoned every time.

    No they shouldn't have time to worship unless it is at their leisure during break, lunch, or free time within class...that is it...nothing special taken out so they can pray.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    No pun intended, but "MY GOD"...we have centuries of history that is explicit about the horrors of having a sectarian type government or at least a government, which is significantly influenced by religion.

    What in the hell is so hard to understand about these horrible times in history? That's why we need FREE THINKERS being leaders of a secular government so that future generations never repeat such terrible events.

    Thanks, Cephus....
