CA teachers banned from praying by ACLU

This is just ridiculous.

Liberty Counsel filed a motion to intervene on behalf of Christian Educators Association International (CEAI) in a lawsuit filed earlier this year by the ACLU against the Santa Rosa County School District. The ACLU filed suit, claiming some of the teachers and administration endorsed religion.

The School District attempted to settle the suit by joining with the ACLU and presenting the court with a Consent Order, which essentially bans all employees from engaging in prayer or religious activities, whether before, during, or after school hours.


Before school? After school? Now the ACLU is the prayer police? A teacher cannot pray before his/her lunch?

Well, they shouldn't be praying aloud at work anyway. There is nothing to prevent them from silently praying anytime during the day, including before each meal, class, etc. Why would they want to pray aloud anyway, unless it would be to influence students -- even in the guise of being moral role models? Such attempts are at odds with our free society. How would you like it if members of another religion prayed aloud before lunch with students present? Silent prayers are heard just as well as spoken ones -- at least by my God.
