I don't see the problem with this. No one is being forced into the prayer. I think it is wonderful that the school is respecting its students, whose parents tax dollars go towards supporting the school.

The Christians believe Sunday to be sacred. Their children do not go to school
The Jews hold Saturday to be sacred. Their children do not go to school
The Muslims believe Friday to be sacred. Their children do not..........Oh wait a minute. Yes, they do go to school.
You asked if Christians and Jews get to pray for an hour in the school cafeteria on their holy day. No they do not. They are given the whole day off.
So give the Muslim kids Friday off.
OK...but the Christian and Jewish kids get their holy days off plus five days of school each week. Are you suggesting the Muslim children only get four days of school or do you suggest that school be opened on Saturday or Sunday so the Muslim children can get their fifth day? Perhaps you should take that up with the Teacher's Unions.
Muslim children are not getting more privileges, they are getting less. Where children of other faiths get a day off they get an hour in the school cafeteria.
Would the average Christian feel his child is privileged if he were to no longer get Sunday off but instead received one hour of school time to hold a church service?
Would you think it outrageous if that were the case and they even allowed a Christian priest or minister to come into the school to hold the service rather than let the kids do it themselves or had it led by a non-Christian teacher?
I totally agree with you. I think this is outrageous and must be stopped. The schools should immediately drop to a four day, Monday to Thursday schedule. That would be fair, yes?

Saturday and Sunday are not school days, maybe that's why?

Well, the poster directly above me seems to have made that point in a more detailed fashion. Is it really only boys? Are there no Muslim girls at this school? I know they pray, too.
I've got an idea: 4 day school week. Monday to Thursday.

Problem solved: None of the major religions have holy days from Monday to Thursday. Jehovah's witnesses tend to have bible studies on Tuesday or Thursday, it seems, but that is at night. The Buddhists don't have particular days, nor do the atheists.

Plus, you save on public sector spending by having a teacher furlough! One less day for the government to indoctrinate your children with Marxism. Parents can get that day off also (4 day work week) and then we don't need the whole 5 weeks of paid vay-kay like those lazy European socialists...Everyone wins!!!

they do have jobs right?

Your agenda shines bright through Fooks. Guys, pay attention to this guy, works in an organized fashion with other bash-posters.

And for the ones that do not know what I mean by agenda: This guy concurs and presents mo-thurs as the final solution because the Muslim day of prayer is Friday. These guys are racists and bigots, watch out for their posts and deny ignorance.

If the muslims dont like it, well,,,,,,,,, %$#@ off back to the stone age where you belong.





Do you realize what you just said doesn't make sense at all? You need to elaborate on what you just said.

Tell us what do you mean when you say "$#%# off back to the stone age where you belong". Are you saying Muslims belong in the stone age, or are you saying they belong in another country that resembles stone age, or are you only talking to Muslim American immigrants, and not to Muslim Americans, are you saying Muslims should be forced to leave, or forced to live in stone age....

You really need to elaborate, because some could conclude that you are a bigot, and that is not a nice title. Although in Germany many wore the Nazi patch with pride, you shouldn't wear the bigot patch with pride, there's no dignity with that, but hey, like they say, history repeats itself.
