Separation of Church and State was established, in part, to help prevent indoctrination. But, it seems this standard applies to only to Judeo-Christian beliefs.
One Bakersfield, California mom had enough of this when her 7th grade son came home with an assignment about Islam that required they listen to an Islamic prayer. Tara Cali wrote on the assignment that she was not allowing her child to do it. Then she posted a picture to Facebook.
While schools are able to educate students about religion, they may have crossed the line with requiring the students listen to a prayer. I would be outraged too. Did the students also have to listen to The Lord’s Prayer?
Please share this if you agree with this mom!
