The Michigan Public School Board gives Muslim students special privileges not allowed to Christians.
According to an article from The Christian Post, certain public schools in Michigan have begun to allow prayer in school. I know what you’re thinking. This is outrageous! Isn’t that against the law?! Keep calm, ye separation of church, and state crusaders, for it is not Christians or Jews who are being allowed to pray, but Muslims. Whew! You can all go back to watching today’s Daily Show.
“Stirring up the Constitutional storm, once again, is the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Michigan chapter, which has reached a ‘negotiated’ settlement with the school board in Dearborn, a suburb of Detroit, which will give Muslim kids so-called ‘prayer accommodations’ in Dearborn Public Schools…CAIR lawyers ‘recently met with Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Brian Whiston to discuss concerns from some parents regarding prayer accommodations in Dearborn Public Schools’…Consequently, ‘Dearborn Public Schools has implemented a policy which fully accommodates student-led prayer in all the schools, as well as unexcused absences for students who leave early on Fridays for Jumu’ah prayers‘…”
This doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. I can pretty much guarantee that the Michigan school board capitulated to CAIR’s requests because they are afraid. Afraid of what? Being labeled a racist, or an Islamophobe.
Let’s alter the situation a bit. Let’s say that known Christian organization Focus on the Family tried to “negotiate” with public schools to allow Christians to pray in school, and leave early on Fridays for religious reasons. How do you think that would go down? It would become a national outrage, the likes of which would spark the left to battle. The leftist media would cry “separation of church and state!” and mush-brained sycophants across the nation would eagerly nod their heads in agreement. Even if a media firestorm did not occur, I doubt any public school would yield to demands made by Christians. Why? Because it’s not a big deal if you’re anti-Christian.
