Seperation of Church and State is regarding LAW(read: Iran and a reigious based GOVERNMEMT) and not hanging a prayer in a school. If someone was a true “athiest” why do they even care that the prayer is hanging there? I’m personally agnostic and this is exactly why – let people be.
And why do they care if it’s hanging there? Because for one, it’s illegal. As I’ve written before…
Responsible adult citizens who disagree with our laws should work through the system to change them legally instead of violating them. If everyone got to pick and choose which laws to disregard we would be well on the road to anarchy.
For another thing, it marginalizes the non-religious students. That’s a bad thing.
