    Minnesota school district restores prayer in schools
    By Thomas Lifson


    Do you think the ACLU will be suing any time soon? Because there’s a catch. Brendan of Supreme Patriot noticed something:

    Christians are allowed to pray in schools. They always have been.

    I could've sworn there was no prayer allowed in schools. Christian prayers, that is.

    You are incorrect. Students are allowed to pray whenever they want, and always have been.
