In late May 2010, Wellesley, Massachusetts public middle school kids were taken on a field trip to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center. This is a Saudi-funded "mega-mosque" operated by the Muslim American Society of Boston. When the students arrived, they were separated according to gender and asked to join the Muslim adults in their prayer. Several of the male students did so.
So, just where is the outcry from the liberal left? Where is the ACLU on this one? It's the old double-standard once again. If this school had taken the students to a Christian church, the ACLU would have been there filing one of their agenda-pushing lawsuits in about five minutes. We would have been hearing the progressives screaming "separation of church and state" ad infinitum on all of the leftist media outlets.
Obviously, the leftist lawsuit-filing wingnuts don't apply the same standards to all religion when it comes to the mythical separation of church and state. Maybe a "mosque" isn't a "church", and the left doesn't consider Islam a religion.
