Do you think a public school holding religious prayers while school is in session is okay?

Quite an argument he makes.

"We publish a lot of op-eds! That makes us mainstream and well-established!"

I read a comment from someone who is wondering if the FLQ will represent French Quebeckers.

Every group which dares oppose Islamo fascism is nothing but a puny fringe one man group! They are unrepresentative, all of em! Muslim Canadian Congress? Just five media darlings! JDL? One man show! CHA? Two skinny 'hindis'. Canadian Secular Allicance? Fringe nutcases!
LONG LIVE ISLAMO FASCISM. All who oppose us are fringe nobodies!

In fact even the new CJC (CIJA) has now come out in support of Muslim prayers http://tinyurl.com/3k6vhj5

I guess CJC remains a "Liberal" bastion even with Farber on a leave of absence. Good for them

The fact is that CIJA did not come out in support of Islamic Prayer in the TDSB. Read the statement.

Well, the headline reads:

"Jewish lobby supports Muslim prayers in schools"

It goes on to state that CIJA supports religion in schools since it is anchored in human rights law. It further states that Muslim prayers are constitutionally protected. Seems pretty clear to me.

Here is exactly what CIJA has announced;

"Religious accomodation in the school system, while not an absolute and unqualified right, benefits all faiths. The principle of reasonable religious accomodation is enshrined in Canada's national and provincial human rights legislation...however, schoolbaords should ensure that religious accomodation intiatives are appropriately implemented, consistent with the values of the board, the schools in which they take place and the communities they serve."

As Chapel says pretty clear and surprisingly progressive.
