Supreme Court Upholds Muslim Prayers in CA School Curriculum

The Supreme Court has surprisingly, in my view, refused to hear an appeal regarding a curriculum used in California middle schools which requires children not simply to learn about Islam, but to actively engage in Muslim prayer and "become" Muslims for several days or weeks.

The Supreme Court refusing to hear the case means the ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals approving the curriculum stands, and it may continue to be used in California.

One more reason to be glad my children aren't in public school...

This case also underlines the double standards our modern society seems to be adopting: can you imagine the outcry if children were forced to pray Christian prayers?

Can't you just imagine the outcry if the children had to not only learn about Christianity, but had to engage in Christian prayer and "be Christians" for a few days or weeks!!!
