Seems these girls have very little in the way of freedoms even living in a western country, I am in no way defending the faith I think it is backwards and is detrimental to todays society.

IN my eyes this is a compromise and not a bad one, exclusion is not a way forward either. If there is going to be any hope for Muslims to integrate it is with the young.

You will have to give me any evidence that this is dangerous for the girls and that the school is playing with fire. If the parents let them go, then fine. If others won't, then fine. It's still there for the girls.

Name one Christian activity that will only allow girls and no cell phones.

Burka-twerkin'!

Seriously, might as well just say "Sharia Law" for Muslims, and Constitutional law for the rest of us.

If they start tossing gays off of buildings?

Tough sh#t.

I agree this is not 'normal'. Why can they not go as they go to school? Hijab and all? They don't have to dance with boys, most girls in America often are all dancing together and a few braver boys will actual dance a few dances too.

Edit add: Public means all encompassing, not separated. Private means it is and should not be public. This is not providing them freedom to enjoy America. It is an appeasement to a religion and one that will push it further than their own members.

Look up honor killings-

If they must wear hijabs I image there are other "traditions" that are up held as well.

Well at least nobody will succumb to alcohol abuse on that night out.


Who cares is some school chooses to hold a Muslim only prom???

It's not like there are not other similar events that focus on Christian events, off the top of the hat Easter and Christmas activities, holidays and events spring to mind.


Easter and Christmas are Christian Holidays? I am so going to Hell for that....oops. another Christian make believe place.

Sighs. I know what they believe. Stop being obtuse. As I have stated if the parents are ok with it then there is no "playing with fire".

Sorry, these girls have no right to have fun.

The schools should keep their noses out of the business of honoring "religious laws".

This is not prom. This is a bunch of girls getting together and listening to music.





Right..

I went to an private English boarding school as youngster and I had religion shoved down my throat every single day, it was relentless.

I think you will find that sermons in churches inspired schools, schools have always been steered by religion.

How many gay people atop buildings do you expect these girls will encounter over the period of the evening?

As to "Burka-twerkin'" there has to be meme out there doing the rounds that features such a thing.


As to Sharia Law being involved, i don't think Muslims who hold with such a draconian system of rule would be up for sending the children to such an event anyway.

You are 100% correct for asking....and I agree. Why can't they be involved like every day school? Why is separation needed at prom?

Why not practice tolerance like the rest of us are forced to do? Pun intended.

Oh as long as everyone fills out permission slips.

Silly that the schools is getting involved with this.

The whole point is to let them be themselves without wearing hijabs. And also I think that dancing with boys is a big no-no unless I am mistaken?

Who the hell knows!

They don't want to integrate into American culture, yet they go to our schools.

If their local mosque held a dance for them, that'd be different.

But the school is making religious exceptions.

Why is it silly? It's a nice gesture and paves a way to enlighten those girls.

How is it enlightening these girls.

Are you making a judgement on their religion?
