And even crazier, Atheist groups are on board with it. So what’s the obvious conclusion to draw from this? Christian bashing is the new norm, and everything else in opposition to Christians is good.
The Blaze ran this story:
A public high school in New York state has made available two vacant rooms so Muslim students can pray during Islam’s holy month of Ramadan.
Donald Flynt, principal of Clifton Park’s Shenendehowa High School — along with other school administrators and faculty — had invited a local imam to a meeting to learn more about the Muslim religion, the Saratogian reported. Afterward, Flynt made the move to open up the rooms from May 27 to June 24, the paper said.
“[Ramadan is] a month long and there are certain obligations that must be done in addition to praying,” school district spokeswoman Kelly DeFeciani told the Saratogian. “Principal Flynt wanted those students who observe Ramadan to be able to stay in school and also fulfill their religious obligations.”
Use of the rooms is not limited to any student’s faith, the paper said.
Right Wing News says atheists are ok with this idea. Really?!
Interestingly, a spokesperson for the Freedom from Religion Foundation — which frequently protests when Christianity is accommodated in schools or workplaces — said that there was nothing wrong with the school’s decision. “Our first impression is that this is a reasonable accommodation,” Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president and co-founder of the atheist group, said. “It is important that schools not get carried away and it’s always worth monitoring. Principals should beware appearing to promote prayer or praise it in students.”
Would she say the same thing for, say, Catholics who want to pray the rosary at specific times each day during Lent? Somehow, it seems unlikely. And it calls into question the motives of this atheist group — are they trying to fight for freedom from all religion, or just freedom from Christianity?
When did hypocrisy become the norm?
