School Prayer coming to Germany....

This is a bad precedent...
An administrative court in Berlin ruled that Muslim students can pray in school, citing religious freedom, news reports said Wednesday.

The court ordered the school of an unidentified 14-year-old Muslim student to enable him to pray.

It also argued that prayer of the Muslim student would also promote peaceful co-existence and tolerance among students of other religions.

The school had initially barred the pupil from praying, pointing to the neutrality rule of the school.

The Muslim student will now be able to hold his noon prayer in a separate room.

I remembered when I prayed in class. It was 30 years ago at a public school in the Toronto area. Depending on the grade, we also had Bible readings.
