4. Answer your best
So my main focus is on of course, should God be taken out of schools? If so, why do you believe so?
I accept your challange, however does con mean you want god in schools or you do not
Freedom of religion
Having God in schools is not right because it restricts others freedom of religion. I assume you are not just talking about a prayer each morning but also have them as an intigrated part of the classes. It would offend people hat are not Christian if their child had to go through a false prayer every morning. The government should not be allowed to tell you which religions God should be prayed to or taught in school.
Freedom of speech
If someone doesn't want to follow a religion how can we force them to sit through a prayer every morning. It would also be unfair to force them to do school work that has religious components.
Predominance of Christianity
As of now it is fair to say that Christianity is the majority religion in the United States. However, what if Islam slowly became the majority religion over Christianity. Would you be comfortable sending your child to school to learn Islamic principles and say Islamic pledges.
Your right I wouldn't like if I had a child and they were in a public school being forced to pray to the Islamic god.. It probably anger me.. In the old days they actually used to have prayer and Bible readings in the school.. I don't see why that can't still happen? Might as well since Obama is permitting everything else in America.
