Farrakhan Attacks Religious Neutrality In Schools

I just saw this at Americans United for Church and State:

LINK: Farrakhan’s Flub: Nation Of Islam Minister Attacks Religious Neutrality In Schools

According to Minister Louis Farrakhan, church-state separation is responsible for the education problems in America.

Hundreds packed a South Side Chicago church on Sunday to hear Farrakhan, the controversial leader of the Nation of Islam, speak on the “Educational Challenge: A New Paradigm for the 21st Century.” According to the Chicago Sun-Times, community activists and religious leaders met to find solutions for America’s “plighted education system.”

And Farrakhan’s solution? Inject religion into the public schools.

These god botherers will never understand what separation of church and state means.

I wonder which religion he wants injected...

I would guess any of the god of Abraham variety.

We have no separation of Church & State yet have one of the most Secular countries in the world. Maybe the route to a Secular society is through teaching religion in schools... Kind of a hoist by their own petard thing... [grin]
