    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.

    Schools aren't allowed to lead students in prayer. But there's nothing stopping Christian students from praying whenever they want.

    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.

    Violates separation of church and state. Umm, no brainer. Hence, it's illegal.
