Public school let's Muslims leave classes to pray

Jews, Hindus and Christians need not apply
  • Insane Maryland Liberal public school government employees have dropped their pants, bent over for Islam and allowed Muslim students to leave classes to pray to Allah. 
  • Meanwhile students of other religions must remain in secular government run classrooms. 

A high school near Washington DC has taken a rare step of accommodating Muslim prayer during class hours. Parkdale High School now allows a handful of its students to be excused to pray. The decision has made some Christian staffers "unhappy".

­Prince George County High School Principal Cheryl J. Logan said the initiative is in response to the needs of the growing Muslim community,” the Washington Post reported. To be able to leave class each day all you need is a parental permission and high grades, Logan said.

Parkdale High School

At Parkdale High School, about 10 Muslim students get out of class for about eight minutes each day to pray together on campus, said Principal Cheryl J. Logan. Another student is working hard to raise his grades so he too can join the group of students, who belong to the school’s chapter of the Muslim Students’ Association, she said. reports the Washington Post.

When Muslim students began praying during the school day at Parkdale, she said, some Christian teachers got upset and told the students that “it was a Christian school.” She said she explained to the students that public schools are not religious, but are legally allowed to accommodate students to practice their religion in some ways.

The move has already upset several of the school's Christian staffers, many of whom remember when the school was a Christian institution. US public schools are secular by law, but are legally allowed to accommodate religious students’ practices.

Followers of the Muslim faith are required to pray five times a day, and each prayer must be accompanied by a specific posture and movement.

The double standard of insane liberalism

why should christians be upset?---they have never had the religious commitment to pray 5 times a day anyway---and the day of the week that they do pray, either saturday for some christians or sunday for others is a school holdiay---so their religious commitment/requirement is fulfilled!!!! If the school changed to giving fridays off instead of sundays---then yes christians may have a right to be upset.......

Sorry, but just because some crazy fruit cake in a robe 1,400 years ago said to pray 5 times does not mean everyone else must bow down and kiss the asses of the nuts who follow that religion.
