Just got this from John Ross’s summary of federal court decisions, which appears sort of weekly on the Volokh Report:
Suppose a La Plata, Md. public school teacher compelled a Christian student to write part of the Shahada: “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” First Amendment violation, right? Fourth Circuit: It was homework for a world history class. About what Muslims believe. Judgment for the school.
Oh come on, people! Instead of wrangling the First Amendment, try reading and understanding it. Alternatively, put your kids into religious schools. You’ll guarantee they won’t be forced to learn anything about anybody else’s religious history.
