Maybe it'll sink in for you eventually. Anyway it looks like that it's pointless to continue to talk to you about this.

Yes I do understand your perspective. You see this as school promoting Muslim religion and discriminating the girls.

Now that would indeed be an interesting evening to attend.


Wonder what shape and direction the WestBoro Baptist Church version of prom evening would take?

That might be a night out i would not wish to attend.

Whoa way off topic. But anyway we have two situations:
1) Normal prom with Muslim girls without hijabs (or with) dancing with boys. Total freedom. This is a huge no no for Muslim parents and can be dangerous.
2) No party for girls so they can stay at home. Tough sh!t. No freeom.

This is a compromise giving the girls SOME freedom.

Clear now?


I admitted I never went to prom. So tell me what is the difference from any other dance? All the school dances I did go to, the girls were usually dancing to the faster melodies together. Boys were only needed for slow dancing and often most boys and girls would hit the bathroom or get a drink to cool off and avoid slow dancing.

The girls may have to wear a hijab, but they still could dance and have fun at the regular prom. They would see others truly having freedom. By segregating them, we are sending the wrong message to these young girls.

Edit add: let me ask this...which dance are the Muslim boys allowed to go to?

Normal Prom we are discussing and saying that all should be tolerant of all and attend equally not separately


yes
tolerate all
you tolerate that they do things differently
even if they are separated according to their beliefs

if some attend separately it wont be a real American prom for them
but we tolerate their belief to do so

sensationalizing others different beliefs
promotes division

I wonder if dancing with boys even in hijab is a big no-no for Muslims. If that is the case that would explain this.
Let me find out.

Although you reasoning is sound....Allah's is not.

Allah forbids it. Therefore it is forbidden. End of discussion.

Why do you not have hijab on your face in your Avatar? Infidel?

We segregate different groups of people every day both unintentionally and by design.

Fact is different people require different situations to socially interact, that's just the way our world spins.

As to freedom, true freedom simply does not exist in modern society, don't matter what flavor of prom you attend, still constrained by the same laws of the land, colour creed or religious indifference aside.

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

Segregated Sunday school activities spring to mind.

They separate the boys and the girls and don't exactly hold with the latest smartphone popping out the beats during class.

And you are saying that these girls have the right to have fun.

They do not.

And the school is walking a very fine line.

Okay, in reading that, it leaves me wondering why they are not going to have a separate dance for Muslim boys, who are not suppose to dance with girls? Or even watch girls dance? A Muslim boys only dance?

Why the separation and distinctions? To me, this seems disingenuous. If they cannot attend due to religious beliefs that is what private clubs, schools, and events are for, not in a public venue.

Public schools have nothing to do with that. And I have not encountered a sunday school class that is segregated.

And omit cell phones- doesn't happen.

Try again

I know Islam doesn't make sense. It's a bunch of nonsense.
The way I see this is to give those girls "experience" even if it isn't a normal prom. It gives them a sense of being a part of it and feeling free, even if it's not fully free. Why deny them that due to Muslim religion BS?

Easter and Christmas has been banned from most public schools. They get Winter and Spring Break, and they don't always even cover the Easter or Christmas holiday calendar days in some places.

Religious based events are supposed to take place in the home, not in the schools, was their explanation. I find it interesting that they are using the excuse that they are supporting a culture based on religion as their excuse for this event.

I see why it is being questioned.
