Since when are people so ridiculous.

When I was in elementary school I had to bike for 20 min, 4 times a day, except for Wednesday's when it was 2 times.

The school five min away only accepted Catholic kids. My parents didn't protest but just had us attend a school further away that did accept kids if all religions and atheists.

People are whining about everything nowadays. Ridiculous!
Aren't you Jewish? Would you say the same thing if an instructor ripped off a student's kippah?

In America, public schools can't only accept students of a certain religion. They cannot deny a student the practice of their religion, including articles of clothing that are required by religious observation.

Separation of church and state?
In America if we want religion taught in our schools we send out kids to parochial schools.

That's not true. Schools can enforce rules and dress codes. No one is allowed to wear a hat or costume. That's does not violate the first amendment.

[NOLA101;50158292]Are you describing Alabama?

Pretty much everything you wrote would apply to the U.S. and our resident religious fanatics, the vast majority of them Christian.

The U.S. wasn't founded by Christians, BTW. The Founding Fathers were overwhelmingly secular.[/quote]

Guess thats why Allah, Confucius, or Budha are written all over many of our founding documents, Money, Mottos etc. Guess they weren't Slavers, adulterers or swindlers either, since they were perfectly Secular? An admittedly non-Christian could not even win the presendency of this country. To deny that Christanity was the dominate religian, and played little part in the founding of this country is ridiculous.

Im an Atheist and have no problem thanking dog that were weren't founded by Muslims.

Huh? What does this argument (which I agree with) have to do with anything?

That's great, but no one is talking about a "hat" or "costume".

Are you posting on the wrong thread or something? We aren't discussing Halloween costumes or baseball caps.

You said we can not deny the practice of religion.
I guess I should have said if we want our children to practice their religion during school hours instead of teach. Practice/reinforce their religion.
I hoping you still got the idea though. Either way separation of church and state.
