  1. All I can say is, the world is not tuned in. They have thrown God out of schools, courts and where ever else they can. And now they are following the ways of the heathens. The parents don’t want to read the Bible least hear it. We say anything against Islam we are call Bigots and what have you. The Bible is full of warnings for in the last days all they have to do is read it.


  2. You’re going to a mosque and you didn’t know that there was going to be some sort of religious activity taking place? Didn’t the people who were in charge of the field trip already know that this prayer would take place as part of the itinerary? Hindsight is always 20/20 but perhaps someone could have found this out ahead of time and given people the choice to opt out. Or is this being narrow-minded and bigoted? I can only imagine that a lot of teachers as well as students were too uncomfortable once the prayer started to do anything but participate. What an awkward situation to have to be in.
