Watched a music video called “why I Pray”. and it inspired me. Prayer in school doesn’t bother me. What bothers me is the lack of choice and the fact that half the people I know think it some sort of law enforcement.
People actually blame the behavior of kids on taking religion out of schools instead if, you know, the kids and the people who are suposed to teach them right from wrong.(insert blaming stigma on spanking) Prayer only only stalls them until no ones looking. Especially if their required to do it.
The not having a choice thing I’m referring to is the freedom to choose what and who they pray to. Take me for example. I’m a Northern tradition Pagan, I’m not going to feel comfortable thanking Jesus, Odin sure, but what are the odds I’d be sent to the principles office. Or worse(In my case I was spit on, name called, had half eaten food thrown at me)
Unless all religions are welcome in public school none should be.
