Freedom OF religion...not FROM it...
So I saw someone today offended because Duke University broadcasts the Muslim Call to Prayer...and they said that if they are going to do that, then they should broadcast the Lord's Prayer also.
Of course, the call to prayer is NOT a prayer in itself...but that point didn't seem to matter.
And then they went on about how prayer is not allowed in public schools...of which Duke University is NOT a public school (which they conveniently ignored).
Also ignored was the fact that Duke University has a (gasp) DIVINITY SCHOOL and was actually founded by Methodists.
So...let me see if I have this straight...you are offended by a religious inference being used at a school founded on tenets of religion?
I think some people just like to attack the Muslim faith for any (or no) reason whatsoever.
And before people start going on about terrorists and the Muslim faith, let's not forget about the fights and terrorism committed by Catholics and Protestants against each other...not all terrorists are Muslims.
Our country has a right to freedom OF religion...not freedom FROM religion...even though you might not like that particular religion.
I think most people (and ours courts, unfortunately) have forgotten that distinction...
